    I agree with you Steve, some patterns produced by software are definately lacking heart.

    Pattern creation or photo manipulation? IMHO, photo manipulation does not produce as good of a final piece as a real pattern does. There are forums and various sites that promote "free patterns" but with a handful of exceptions, (there are some excellent photo manipulations where care has been taken to eliminate floaters etc.) I find these "patterns" leave a lot to be desired.

    The software is an excellent tool but should not be relied on soley for the creation of a quality pattern.

    You can look at some portrait patterns and tell they were done strictly with software and with no artistic input. I think a good pattern is much more art than technology, though the technology is a tremendous help to the artist. The more patterns I make, the less I rely on the technology, though it will always be my first time-saving step.

    started a topic Portrait Patterns

    Portrait Patterns

    Toni wanted me to start a new thread on portrait patterns. My secret to the patterns is Ron at www.sawdust-therapy.com. I just send him the photo that I want a pattern of either by e-mail or regular mail. Ron is very good at what he does, he makes a sample pattern and sends it to me for approval, if everything is O.K. he sends me a bill for $15.00. I pay him via Pay Pal and Ron sends me the working pattern. Many people purchase the software to do this on their own, But I think you have to have some artistic talent to go along with the software. I don't do enough of them to invest in the software. Mick.

    When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

    Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

    Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?
