  • Treasure hunt!

    While hunting down my patterns, I found this notebook a friend gave me when he & his family were moving. titled "Woodworking and Pattern Club". Dates I could find are in the 1990-91range. Must be hundreds of patterns in sets. Anyone familiar with it?? (See what I mean about cats??? Cappy, one of my younger brats, had to take a peek!)

      I tend to hit the used book stores from time to time looking for craft magazines. This looks some of the stuff I've seen in the late 1990s/early 2000 craft and painting books. Always thought they would be great for outlines or as a start to a pattern--just never got to it.

          When I got all of my dads woodworking books, wood reference books and pattern books this was in with every thing and yes there a quite a few patterns in the three ring binder.

            I'm pretty sure these are the FC&A publishing patterns from the time period you mentioned. (I have the same set.) The patterns are rather poor in design and they are pretty much for cutting and painting. I don't recall any (or very many) that could be cut and be appealing without painting.

            Winfield's Pattern Club came around 4-5 years later and were a much better product. (I have those as well, but I'm missing one set.)

              I read that some folks take these old patterns and use them as base forms for making new patterns. There are a couple of sets for scrollsaw.

                A relative gave me a box of full of cutting patterns and that book was included. None of it was the type of stuff that I do and I gave them away to some one on the forum (or maybe the old form). I know a lot of the cutting was simplistic stuff that had painting patterns with it.

                  I've watched many of Alex Fox's videos. You did a fine job on this one. I will have to give it a try....

                  Hmm, I read on another message board that the thumb screws are the same size.. and they said they used their screws they had from their old clamp because they had bought some special steel ones with a knurled knob.. so I guess I would assume the screws would work.. then I also read where the only difference...

                  I called suppliers of the Pegas blade holder and none of them could answer if parts were available.I asked mainly for the tip replacement on the thumb screw.

                  I was never a fan of Craftsman power tools. I always though they were for "homeowner duty" and for most normal usage they are great. For heavy duty usage I go with higher end brands. My dad was a big fan. The only Craftsman tools I used heavily and still do are the mechanical ones, wrenches...
