  • Hello from Minneapolis

    Hello -

    I've been lurking for a few weeks, and decided to join today.

    First of all, thank you everyone for helping me so far. The "hive mind" here was very effective, through your conversations, in guiding me toward some good decisions. Based on your input, I purchased a DeWalt AND made sure that the blade was aligned correctly right away. I also used your input to purchase some good beginner books, pick up the ScrollSaw magazine, find some free pattern sites, buy the right blades, watch the video's on Rick's scrollsaw site and countless other things. I am in your debt.

    Secondly, I am so happy to find a hobby as rewarding as scrolling has been for me so far. I am a recovering workaholic, and I fear I was getting "underfoot" around the house. Scrolling gives me a great outlet for my "control freak" tendencies while giving my wife the space she craves. :-)

    Lastly, I just have to say "Hurray, Brett Favre is going to play one more year!!!!" As you may tell from my username, if not from my geography, I am a diehard Packer fan, and between my DeWalt and the great Packer news, I have been in heaven despite the sub-zero temperatures up here.

    Take care, everyone, and thank you again.

      Finally, another scroller from MN. I was in your town just last weekend. I have a daughter and son inlaw that live in Plymouth. I was on Medicine lake for a couple hours. Of course, no fish. Glad to see you here. I hope you enjoy your stay.

                      Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
                      by cwmagee
                      A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                      Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                      That is...

                      The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                      Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                      Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
