  • 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.

            Old Tool - Reborn
            by tgiro01
            With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

            I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

            I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

            +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

            It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
