  • 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 have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                Hi guys - it seems like I am back in business. The offending 'F' key seemed to lack sufficient travel to push down on the main board so I stuck a thin sliver of plastic under it with super glue and that seems to have solved the problem.

                The only downside is I now have no excuses for my...

                WOW! I really like your taste in doors etc. I have have always leaned towards contemporary / modern. But our house is a small cape and that style would not suit it. Since we are both Geminis we have 4 people and our house is very eclectic. Each room has a bit of different style.
