  • Time to introduce myself

    Hi Everybody
    I thought it was about time I introduced myself,I live in the Midlands of England near Ashby-De-La_Zouch,the last time I did any fretwork, as it was called then, was 59years ago with a table clamp and hand saw,I made my mother a letter rack from a Hobbys plan,she used that till she passed away,I think it got destroyed when the house was emptied,I have now purchased a scrollsaw a Ryobi 16in I am not sure wether it was a good buy or not, after going through the other threads, only time will tell I have had it some time now and it is still in the box,I cannot find a spot in my workshop to mount it,my wife always said I was an impulse buyer.

      Welcome, Bill. Open that box and find a spot, even a temporary one, for that saw. If, like most, you will find yourself immersed in a great past time and hooked.

            I'm with Mike on this Bill. Open that box... Get some wood and just cut something. A new adventure is just a wood chip away.

                      Howdy Bill! Good to have you with us! Get that new saw out & give it a whirl! Surely there is some open spot on a table or bench! Show us how it works!

                        Welcome to the team Bill. My wife tells me the exact same thing. It must be them and not us.
                        No matter what saw you have, just go have fun with it.

                          Hey Bill...looking forward to seeing some creations from that Ryobi. My first saw was a Ryobi and I loved it.

                              well, the saw should be fine, it will last you forever, if you leave it in the box!! Now go get it out and get it dusty, and give us a report on your thoughts of the saw. We all have different likes and dislikes about each brand of saw, but we all agree, the best saw to have is the one that keeps us occupied for countless hours. Now ggo make some sawdust! And welcome aboard here. Dale

                                NC opened it up to 65+ the week of January 11. It took us an hour plus to get appointments online through one of the major hospital systems.
