  • Is anyone still using PolyDraw?

    I have looked at it, tried a couple of things, got lost and had to put it on the back burner while I took care of some more pressing matters before I tried it again, but have it on my list of things to get back to and master if it's still there.

      I use it Dave. Is there a possibility of making a free standing version of those really nicely done utilities of yours?

        I've used it quite a bit, Dave. However, now that I'm doing different types of projects, I'm not using it as regularly as before. I would definitely miss it, though.

        I have given it mention on my blog, and do send people over when appropriate.

          I've used it a number of times and hope to continue using it...

            I've tried it out a couple of times but due to other things getting in the way haven't had the opportunity to get back to it yet. It is a great program, any chance of making it free standing as DW suggests?

              Dave, I use it when I get to cut, and will be back at it in the next month or so. Made over 30 bowls, started out with a compass and ruler then went to paper patterns on a drawing program and then to PolyDraw. PD is by far the best. If it was available as a program to install on the PC I would buy it, and if it is only on your site I will use it. If you need some contributions I will do that. Also use the angle calculator.

                Dave I played around with it a bit, but for some reason I could not get it to do what I wanted....I sure it is me not the program. I agree, there seems to be several people that do use it, so it would be a shame to end it...of course if you are paying for it out of your pocket, that isn't right either. Is there a way you can get it for free? I'm sure some day I will learn to use it.

                  Dave,

                  I have to admit I haven't used it yet. I can see I'm missing out. But I'm still addicted to scrolled bowls.

                  However, I just love your pig cutting board design. It's the best pig design for cutting boards I have ever ran across. Have cut several of them and in fact plan to cut more of them very soon. Anymore great patterns up your sleeve?

                        $10.00 a month gets expensive, if it were available for a decent price I would consider buying it but to pay a monthly fee to use it "ain't gonna happen".

                          Is it something I could place on my website for you? I am not sure what it is. What is the link Dave.

                            Mike:
                            See Dave's site ScrollMania! and look on the left side menu bar. It is used to draw bowl patterns in various shapes.

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                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.

                                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...

                                The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...
