  • Question for BobD


    In your "Practicing Techniques" message you mentioned taking a class recently. Since I only live about 15 miles away from Lebanon (Lititz) I figured I'd ask if you'd mind sharing some details about this class.
    Was it worth it?

    Actually, we had Ron Posten come to the office and give the staff at Fox Chapel Publishing a class--so I really can't answer your questions about pricing, etc.

    But I learned more in that class than I've learned in a year on my own! Everything from how to cut a smooth curve to cutting a straight line, and how to pivot in was awsome!

    I don't really know of many other classes around here, though...

    One thing, though, is that Ron highly reccomends John Nelson's Scroll Saw Workbook. We spent a good portion of the class just cutting John Nelson's first project...Ron is a big proponent of mastering the fundamentals first--the rest is really just following the suggestions of a pattern!

    Hope this helps!

The stores I called didn't do that kind of thing, however they directed me to a store here in town that...

      The auto darkening helmet is a must have in my opinion, especially for the home hobby welders. if you are a pro and do it all the time maybe not.

      Couldn't agree more Rolf. The helmet has been a game changer for me.

      Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
      a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
      Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...
