  • hello from the UK

    hi all
    i'm steve and i will be starting scrollsawing early in the new year when my log cabin has been delivered and errected for me.
    I am a complete novice at this type of work, having tried some last year but failed miserably, not managing to control the wood at all, so looking for some help.
    i will be off now, to look around other sections of this forum.
    thank you
    steve

    Hi Steve
    I am also new here and new to scrolling. Great people here and extremely helpful. They have a lot of knowledge to offer. Best place to land.

      Hi Steve,

      Welcome aboard. If it's help you're looking for, this is the place to find it. We've all been there and done that, because we've all been novices at one time.

              Keep your eyes peeled for Aussies, although you'll probably hear them before you see them...

                Welcome Steve. Scrolling is not that difficult if you learn the basics. Like blade tensioning, cornering, v-cuts, etc. You'll get the hang of it, I'm sure.

                      You noticed the irony then ... Seriously, I've met lots of Aussies and they are generally sociable friendly people - except when you get them onto the subject of sport ..lol

                        so looking forward to getting my log cabin and getting started, i already feel at home here.
                        see you around the forum.

                          Welcome Steve, But a log cabin in England. That does not fit into my idea of English homes. Maybe a Manor house, or something like that.

                          When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                            This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                            I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                            Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                            How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

                            I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

                            First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
