  • New From NW Mississippi

    Trying this again:

    Hi, my name is Hank Lee; I am kinda new to scroll saw woodworking. Looking forward to interacting, asking questions, and learning some finer tricks of the art. I am also semi-retired, meaning my part time work is almost full time. I have been around woodworking, and using woodworking tools as kid growing up in the '50s. My first venture in scroll saw was in Japan in the late '80s and early '90s. I purchased, on a whim, a cheap Sears scroll saw, a bunch of blades and took them to Japan where I worked for 26 years. I used it to cut out Japanese Kanji patterns in wood for friends and also to make puzzles. I found patterns from where ever I could or made my own. The saw got lost after a couple of moves.

    A week ago, my wife pushed me to get into scroll saw woodworking after seeing some patterns in a few books at the Springfield, MO, Grizzly warehouse store. (Daughter lives near and works in Springfield, MO.) She even offered to buy me a scroll saw, if I would do some projects for her. I agreed and she did purchase a DeWalt last week, (and I have some questions about it later.)

    My interests, and LOML's request are in several areas: signs and name plates, fret work, intarsia and toys for grandkids.

    (Wow, It finally let me post.)

    Welcome Hank. Scrolling is very addictive and it will draw you in so sit back and enjoy the ride.

        Welcome! Hank Thanks for sharing you past and present experiences with us. I also own a DeWalt- lots of miles on it. Thanks for your persistence in posting. This forum at the present isn't the most friendly.

          Welcome, Hank! Please try to post photos of your work. I would like to see what 'Kanji patterns' look like. Some folks have problems with photos. I have been lucky and have not had any problems. I hope it will be easy for you to do, as a sort of compensation for the hard time you had making your first post!

              Hank:
              You can ask questions any time on just about any topic and someone here will help you. We all share freely and learn from each other, so the only dumb questions are the ones I haven't asked yet.

                              I forgot to mention the 5000 watt(?) generator his brother gave him. His brother does house remodeling and lots of times people give him “stuff” just to get rid of it. Bruce had to drain the gas, change the fuel lines and some other minor things for $35 and it starts on the first pull....

                              This is his $40 haul. The paint bush was never used. He cleaned up the grinder. He added up all the attachments and brand new everything would be almost $800. This was their yearly tool swap. Every month members bring things they don’t need and swap smaller items. Even scrap wood. Anything 5”x5”...

                              Where are you located in England? I was at RAF Lakenheath back in the early 70's and bought my 70 TVR Vixen, which I still have. I absolutely loved my time there.!...
