  • INSCAPE and GIMP tutorials

    I hope this is the right place to post this. I found a site on the net that has pretty extensive tutorials on how to use GIMP and INKSCAPE to make scroll saw patterns. It is called Scroll Saw Village. The URL is:
    Village University Classes • Scroll Saw Village
    I hope this will be of some help to anyone looking for help on these two programs.


    Cheers,

      Jim Moss (Jim_Mex) wrote and produced a very extensive, well done tutorial on INKSCAPE that is in the sticky section of the Intarsia, Segmentation and Inlay forum here on this site. You might want to check that one out as well.

          Sorry no experience nor have I ever heard of this brand. From the pictures I appears to be plastic. If so I am not sure how it will hold up in the long term.

          It really depends. I typically limit my stack cutting to 1" or less. The only 1 1/2" cutting I do is for compound cut projects. For those I prefer a #5 or #7 skip tooth blade. I do not like a reverse tooth blade for these because the reverse teeth does not clear away all the saw dust from...

          I once was a Flying Dutchman fan but now use Pegas MGT almost exclusively. Nothing wrong with FD but I find the Pegas sharper and a bit more aggressive which I like. I do keep some FD blades around but mostly the small sizes like their puzzle blades and 2/0 spirals. As Dan and Linda said you really...

          But as said, try several and see what works for you

          The 12" throat may be an issue for some things. If you are scrolling an 8x12 piece, at some points on the wood you will not be able to turn the piece completely. There is no tilt that I can find, so as long as you do not use a bevel cut it should be fine. They do not say, that I could find, the...
