    HI,
    My name is Les. I live in western New York. Started scrolling about 1-1/2 yrs ago. I have a Dewalt 788 which I rigged up a foot pedal that lifts the blade. I almost only do portraits. I do friends and relatives who have passed away and give them to the families. I have done a few fallen soldiers for the families also. Currently doing some of the Buffalo Sabres. I try to include a lot of detail. I just entered a very exclusive juried show and am hoping to make it. Take a look. Les-jr

    Hi les-jr
    Welcome to the best place for scrolling. You should put up pictures of some of your work. We would love to see them.

              Welcome. Very nice portraits. What software do you use to convert the photos?

                Thanks mike. I use both microsoft digital image pro and Photoshop. Also my wacom graphics tablet is the best! I like the way digital image adjusts the contrast and brightness, and the way photoshop allows layering and touchups. Any idea why I posted 7 photos but only see 4 when I view my album? Les

                        Les, Looks like you have created two galleries: Les Jr and Les Jr Portraits. the latter is a sub-gallery, if that's what you want to call it. There are 4 photos in each gallery for a total of 8.

                            A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

                            I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

                            Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...

                            This is only my opinion.

                            Hi Linda, My first reaction is it looks good, and my new toy craving started to twitch, but I thing it will be very limiting very quickly.

                            It is a small engraving machine and if that is what you want and need maybe OK. You are limited to 1/8 shank...

                            [QUOTE=Quartz43;n873079]No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

                            I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure...
