  • Hi from Central New York

    Hi everyone, I'm a retired auto worker and have been doing wood working as a hobby all my life. I recently purchased a Dewalt scroll saw and have been having a lot of fun making gifts and crafts for the home. I subscribed to Scrollsaw a year ago and have tried many of the projects. I am still learning a lot about scrolling but everyday my skills are better from trying out new projects.

    I look forward to browsing this site everyday.

                            Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                            HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...

                            My kids always call me since I am the one who probably did the stuff they are calling about.

                            I know it's scary to get that call, but I'm glad to hear the charge exited where it did before it went any further.

                            Probably hurts like hell and he has a copper taste in his mouth...

                            Welcome to the forum from TN. As a Pegas Distributor, Pegas has the Super Skip blades which works perfectly with acrylics at a reduced speed.

                            Welcome to the group. I look forward to seeing more of your work. You will probably need to slow down you scroll saw when cutting the urethane on the scroll saw. If the blade gets to hot it will fuse back together.
                            I have used the house trim board material which I think is PVC. Where do you purchase...

                            thanks for the kind words - I'm not really a scroller "enthusiast", per se. I like to make dimensional signs and have always used the band saw, routers, or Roto-Zip to cut the elements out then do some handcarving to perk them up a bit. I'll put some of my projects in my folder later on....
