  • A New scroller from UK

    Hi, I am 33 from the United Kingdom and have just purchased a new dremel Scrollstation. It seems quite a good machine and cuts nice and straight, but I think I have a lot to lern....but I am sure with the help form you guys I will be able to come up with something presentable

    I must say some of the work you guys do is amazing I just hope I can become as good.I have just ordered a copy of :"Easy to Make Inlay Wood Projects: Intarsia" by Judy Gale Roberts...I am hoping that will get me well on my way.

    anyway look forward to chatting with you guys and learning lots along the way!

          Hey Adam. Welcome to our happy family. Don't let the works dispalyed here intimidate you. We all were beginners like you. Our first attempts were crude at best and we all have had projects that ended up in the kindling pile. Just take your time and have fun with it.

                Hi Adam - nice to have you with us .

                There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

                        Thanks for the warm welcome from everyone much appreciated!

                        I am sure I will be asking lots of questions and like you guys said I am sure I will learn alot in a short space of time with your help.

                        I have only done a few practise cuts so far and my daughters name in some 6mm ply, and I have noticed that at low speed it still seems to quick for me to react quick enough at times .... I guess this is just the learning curve and I will get used to it ?? One quick question should I be using the saw at slow speed or should it be runing flat out for ply? the only reason I ask is if I had got the Hegner Multicut 1 I was going to get that is fixed speed and would be runing flat out all the time or is speed of blade just personal preference?

                        the other thing I was going to ask was "blades" can you tell me what you guys thing of these ones availible from and what would be the best for me to use with different types of wood etc.

                        Many thanks

                          Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                          Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                          Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
