  • And yet another Newbie!

    Hello All,

    My name is Chris and I am from Tampa Bay, FL. I am very new to scrolling, so new I don't even have a Scroll Saw yet! LOL... I am picking up a new Scroll Saw this Friday.

    The main reason I am getting into this is because we are doing my son's first ever Pinewood Derby Car for Cub Scouts. I would also like to do some other cool projects as well.

    I hope that I can learn alot here and plan on spending as much time as I can here reading in the forum.

    Thanks for having me!

    Regards,
    Chris

                  Welcome Chris,

                  I don't remember much about the pinewood derby even though we won it one year & my son saved his cars. I do remember to weight it in the rear & to the max & pump the graghite to it. I would like to see the car when it is done!

                      I just responded on your other post, but for the pinewood derby car, you will be ok with a bigger size blade, with less, but larger teeth, to help remove that thick wood, even the pin end blades are fine for this. dont know if you have time before the race, but heres a nice book http://www.foxchapelpublishing.com/p...s.cfm?sku=2917 that might be very helpful to you. The company that does that book are great people, and I bet they could get the book shipped to you pretty quickly.Have fun building the car together, thats the joy of it! Dale

                        Robert, don't sell yourself short. You are getting as sharp as a tack.

                        Welcome Chris. What saw are you getting?

                            I think it looks like my Dremel 1680 but with the Craftsman name. I am not familiar with the Craftsman saws but my Dremel was an ok saw.

                                I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.

                                I've tried label paper as well. It peels off reasonably well, although different brands will probably perform differently. When it doesn't come off easily, I have a little heat gun that makes release quickly. When I have used 3M spray adhesive and left it on for too long, a hair dryer or heat gun...
