    Tracey! forget any pattern for the minute ,get a 1/4 pc ply wood or scrap pc of thin board draw some images you like ,and s's sq.s get use to the saw and blades go slow practice going where the lines go ,it will take a little while .drills some small hole ,just bigger than the blade like you will w/a fret pattern make cut outs real small ,all kind of intricate shapes in ten or 12 places close together .In other words get used to the saw and cutting so you do not get frustrated trying to cut first.I know thats not what you wanted to hear
    but its the truth ,then get a coloring book ,use as a pattern ,explore and experiment,you will see what I'm trying to let you have fun and learn at your own paces.I look forwrd to seeing some of your work here soon!

            Use Google it can be your friend. Type any word followed by images IE Tree images you will find all types of pics to print out and practice on for silhouette style cutting (outlines).

                I have no idea what the measurements of the 18" table are, I can give measurements of the poly max and the 14"....

                Just Wondering...

                Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...
