      I'm surprised no-one mentioned that the fuzzies can be removed with a light
      application of a propane torch.

        Thanks for all the advice I listen to it all.
        Hi Janis, your wood looks pretty thick, I think I would try a #7 UV blade. Let me know if the #5 worked, though. How thick is your wood?

          Mary, I used 3/4 wood on both clocks. The #5 worked pretty good, had to go slow on the oak clock.

            Nice clocks Janis. They really look nice. Should not be a problem selling. The info that you have here on the fuzzy's will work fine & I find cutting thicker wood will build dust inside the cut's & that makes the pieces harder to push out. If you use a blade that will discard the dust, that will help too. Good Job. Thanks for showing them.

                Janis I'm no expert at all . but I use my old craftsman scrollsaw and cut a piece of sand paper 5" long by 1/2"wide and fold in half and install it in the old scrollsaw and feed it in the work piece .I don't use this scrollsaw for cutting anymore and with the least tension applyed and as slow as it will run and it does wonders on those hard to sand places . This is if you had a extra scrollsaw and I'm sure that some out there does , maybe if this doesn't help you it will others . Sorry if it doesn't ........Marshall

                  Hi Janis....very nice job!! I don't know if this will help you, but I bought a bag of popsicle sticks at the dollar store. Then I glued various grits of sandpaper to each, from the tip down about 2 inches. Then I trimmed off the excess sandpaper and used a Sharpie to mark each stick with the grit. I also split a few sticks in half, once again from the tip down about 2 inches to get in even smaller places. These work for me if the space I need to get in is large enough for the stick.

                    Hi Janis

                    I use a broken blade to push out small pieces. As for sanding, I use a cloth sanding material called Abranet for sanding and make small rolls of it for getting into hard to reach areas. I have used my kitchen gas blowtorch for removing fuzzies on the back and on the front for any pieces that will be painted.

                    Good Luck

And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole.

                          My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                          New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                          I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.
                          Thanks

                          Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                          Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
