  • Blade alignment problem solved!!!

    Thank you all for your helpful suggestions. I found several problems.
    (1) The "0" stop was keeping the table from being level(I didn't know I needed to check it). (2) There was a burr on the upper arm blade clamp. (3) I think a little of the problem might have been operator malfunction!! The saw seems to be working fine now. I actually cut out a Christmas ornament yesterday,and still have all my fingers(well,except for the one I lost in 1979,but that's another story!!) Thank you,thank you. Roadhog

    Way cool, Roadhog!
    We're now looking foreward to hearing about what you're cutting.
    Happy sawdust making!

      That's good news! Nothing worse than chomping at the bit to try out a new toy and not have it work right.

          Roadhog,

          Glad you resolved the problem with the scrollsaw.

          That Christmas ornament you cut... KEEP IT!!!

          You need to have something to compare your progress with, and believe me, you'll be amazed at how fast and how much progress you will make.

          Ah yes, one more thing, take a picture of it and show us.
          We are a funny bunch that way, we like to see people's work.
          We like to offer encouragement and constructive advice as well.

          Regards,

            I think what Marcel means is : Take a picture of the ornament to show us.We all enjoy seeing one anothers projects and progess.

            I'm sure he did NOT mean : Take a picture of your missing limb. We are a totally mixed up bunch, and like seeing stuff like that.

            Ok, That was meant as humor, I hope everyone realizes that. Roadhog, congrats on getting your saw going.As Marcel said, you will make huge strides at scrolling rather quickly, and the scrollsaw will take over your life! You wont ever want to stop cutting! Dale

              Way to go Roadhog. You've already shown you have patience and persistence, the 2 main ingredients of a happy scroller. Throw in a little humor and you've got it made.

                I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                First off how thick is the board you cut?
                When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
