  • Greetings from Litlhof in the Smoky Mtn. Area

    Hi Everyone, my name is Walt Rollison and I live in Seymour Tennessee, about 15 miles north of Pigeon Forge. I have been seriously scrolling for about 3 years, but off and on for about 40. My main interest at the moment is intarsia and I only completed about 8 or 9 projects so far.
    Best regards to all.

    As long as you know you're green, you grow but when you think you're ripe you begin to rotten.

    Hi! Walt, and a warm welcome to the friendliest scrolling club on the web, and the most helpful too.

      Hi Walt and welcome to the board. Kevin's right - this is definitely the most friendly and helpful forum I've come across.

        You're from the area I call heaven on earth. The smokies are beautiful.

              Welcome, Walt, I've been scrolling about 3 years, too, not the 40 years part, tho.

              Let's see what you've be up to.

              The people are the greatest here.

                  Welcome Litlhof. Have been to Pigeon Forge several times vacationing. Nice area. Last time we were there, I had a Honda Prelude that was a blast to drive up and down the mountain. Let us see some of your work, please.

                    Our Judges are some of the best woodworkers I have ever met. On occasion I get asked to explain what I look for in the scrolling categories. I point out all of the nuances. I can't be a judge as I have intarsia and scroll work entries.

                    There may have been some crud on the tips from manufacturing.
                    In the ~20 years of scrolling I never cleaned the ends of my blades until recently. Even with the Pegas clamps I was having some blade slippage, I now scuff the ends of my blades with some 220 grit paper End of problem.!...

                    Don’t over sand them as you will shorten their usable life. Only sand as needed. Another thing to do is clear your blades before installing. Blades are coated with oil to prevent rust. Wipe the ends with alcohol or lightly sand with 320 grit.

                    The fact that you only had approximately 6 hours on the saw tells me there was a thin oily film on the clamps from the manufacturing process.
                    If problem continues you may have spread the clamps in the process of tighten blades. A common problem with OEM parts. This issue will disappear by replacing...
