  • Another goofy question !

    Im tryin to expand on my materials and ideas- has anyone ever cut on glass? Ive been itchin to try a stained glass project using my scrollsaw just wondering if anyone has tryed this? Happy new year and keep the sawdust flyin.

    I do stain glass as well as woodworking, never tried to cut it on the scroll saw, would like to buy a glass saw someday. I don't think the scroll saw will hold up to cutting the glass, don't know if you can even get blades for it. I have done a couple of projects that combine the two, will have to see if I still have the photos, but I don't think I do.

      you can get the diamond blades from Bushton Mfg. they work quite well, but take some practice and a drip tank which you can make out of a piece of 1 1/2" pvc reduce one end to 1/2 or 3/4 inch to accept an ice maker kit, mount at a level that will make the water flow and cut glass. Good luck.

            Right now I live in the greater Houston area, which is by Texas standards 'next door', meaning you only have to drive 4 hours, 2 of them being the Houston commute. But yea, I miss the old missions. That's why I made this project.

            How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

            The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

            Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

            If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. 😁

            Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
