  • results of playing, humming bird

    here are the results of me playing the other day.

    its 1/2 cherry, with #2 or 5 skip blade i think

    Couldnt turn fast or sharp enough to make points. I went past looped around and came back i. Other times i just nibbled it out with blade.

    burned a few edges, not as round as it could be, but it still cute.

    forgot to say its about 4 inches round

    Man,

    And I thought WE had big mosquitoes here this summer!

    Nice job Pete, keep playing like that and those pesky faults will go away.

      Ha Ha Ha Marcel your so funny. you always make my day . Pete . that is pretty cool. I had alot of troubale turning on my sharp points too. untill , I read some tips in this forum and in my SSW magazine. so now what i do is. when i come to a sharp point or v shape. i saw just alittle past the stop point. the distance of my saw blade. back up. turn around in the waist wood. back up into the cut,, and continue my cut. the over cut will allow you to start your cut at the right point. not in front of it. i cut with the burr against my line. that helps me get back into the wood. this really works for me. in thick wood,(or with a big blade) you do have to be carfull. not to make a big turn around hole. so if you ;have the room in you waist wood. cut into it alittle then turn around, on a small blade like a #2 it wont show. does this help? your friend Evie

          Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
          by cwmagee
          A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
          That is...

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          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...
