  • 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.

            Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
            That is...

            The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

            Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

            Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.
