And Happy Easter everyone! O yeah, I made them out of 3/4" hardwood, using #1 blade and I only broke one blade, and it broke after feeding it through a hole and put the tension on it!

                I did not dare use a #1 for a first project.

                That is really nice work.

                Congrats, and enjoy.

                        Well Done!

                        The font patterns can be very tricky, so accomplishing this as a beginner deserves applause.

                          Really nice work - which font?

                          Hi There, it's a really nice piece of work, just one question which font did you use? Is there a list somewhere of suitable fonts for scroll saw work?

                          Best wishes

                            The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                            Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                            It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                            Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
