    What is a good spray-adhesive to attach a pattern to the wood for scroll sawing? I see so many different types and brands on the market. TIA, Bob

    I use 3m 45. Others like the 3m77 and some use duro. Some use elmers. Whatever you end up liking is the right one.

          I go for the 2nd best one. Cheap #1 being free but that's hard to find.

            3M 77 Ditto. I put blue tape down first and spray the pattern to the tape.

              I've used several and the most appreciable difference, IMHO, is price. The Duro product is no longer available under that name. The equivalent is Loctite 100. I used some for the first time this weekend and it works fine. Anytime you are using a new brand that you aren't used to, spray it a little heavy. Better that it be harder to get off than to start lifting while you are cutting.

                LOCTITE 13.5 Oz. Acetone Adhesive is not any good for fret cutting.

                It might work for large cuttings, but when doing fret the patterns comes off when doing cuts that are close together.

                LOCTITE just does NOT hold well, seems like the cutting loosens the pattern next to the cut. (I did the permanent bond method) will try the 3m next.

                here is another thread.

                    I was using the 77 and bought some Elmers because it was cheaper .... but it keeps coming loose from the blue tape so i am going back to the 3M77. It's been very aggravating to be in the middle of a cut and have the pattern come loose. A good tip is to have a glue stick handy and use that to re-apply if needed.

                          I definitely am sold on the 3m 77. I tried glue sticks, didn't hold. I tried Elmer's spray adhesive, came loose while I was cutting. 3M 77 sticks! I also use blue painter's tape on the wood and glue the pattern on top of it.

                              And DURO All-purpose spray adhesive works well. I have used it for many years. I now use the Xyron system for my adhesive. I like it the best.

                                There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

                                Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

                                In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
