  • different cutting names

    after reading about sawing, just how many different forms of scrolling is there, i read there is:
    does all these different types of cutting use different thickness's of wood as well as different techniques..

    They all have their own adapted techniques by those people that do them.

    Lets not forget the whirly gigs, and toys.

      You can add a few more to the list and probably a bunch we haven't thought of;

      I think the project itself determines the thickness of wood, although there probably are some general guidelines that would apply. For example, puzzles are generally thin material, but don't have to be. Compound cutting, by its nature, would utilize thicker material. Fretwork probably would tend to use material 1/2" or less. Intarsia and segmentation, since there is a lot of post-cutting shaping to be done would tend to use thicker material. It all depends on the pattern and the appearance one is going for. That's the great thing about scrolling, there is a lot of room for adaptation to personal tastes.

      The techniques are as basic as following the lines. Just about all scrolling can be boiled down to that. However each particular scrolling disclipline has it's own set of generally accepted practices.

        Just Wondering...

        Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

        With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

        I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

        Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

        I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

        If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

        Hi Linda, great find...I think.

        Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
