        Yep, if it 's jumping up and down, you are not putting enough pressure on the top. Glad you got the new saw. Anxious to see how you like it.

              doddy555, go to Steve Goods page "Scrollsaw Workshop.com" and scroll down a ways and he has a real neat program on how to make Key Chains. They are great starter projects, they don't take much wood and not a lot of time. I got frustrated at first and then went to the New Spiral Flying Dutchman in 2/0 size blades and then it really became fun. I made one for about everyone I know. Good luck and I'm glad you finally got a saw to have fun with.

                  I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                  My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                  None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                  What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                  The bags seem easier on the surface.
                  But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                  Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
