  • New from Iowa

    Hello;

    I just joined the group. I have been scrolling for about 2 years. Have been real active in woodturrning the last year so not much scrolling.

    Would like to get more active again. What I would like to do is make a scroll relief of the wonderful scenery in Utah. We are planning a 4WD trip in April and would like to show the scenery with a Jeep coming out beween the majestic columns. Any ideas on where to go with help on how to do this?

    Thanks

    Al

        Welcome Al. Sounds like you have quite a challenge. I've never been to Utah, but I've heard it's a bit more scenic than Iowa. What part of Iowa are you from? I'm only 63 miles from the border.

                Welcome to the forum. This is a great group and always willing to help you with most anything you have in mind. I live and grew up here in Utah, but unfoutunately I don't know a lot about southern Utah and the slick rock country. It's like a lot of things, outsiders know more of what is our backyards than the natives. I have been there a few times but mostly to Bryce Canyon and Zions Canyon which are both beautiful. The place with the most jeep trials is around the Moab area and I know that you can find all kinds of places there for the kind of photos you are looking for. I am looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

                    Thanks for making me feel welcome. Will try to answer some of the questions.

                    I am from Ames, Iowa.

                    I don't have any pictures now so will probably either search some internet sites or wait until I get there. It probably makes sense to repost once I get a picture in mind.

                    Thanks

                      Welcome Al.

                      A Utah scene sounds like a great idea for a scrollsaw pattern - it could look pretty impressive with one of those rock arches behind a 4WD - or the hoodoos that you mentioned - I've got quite a few pics of Utah scenery here but none with a 4WD unfortunately.

                      I'm sure you'll have a great time down there though - that scenery is awesome.

                        Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                        I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                        Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                        That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                        Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
