  • A Christmas Carol

    For those hoping for a new saw for Christmas, this Carol is for you. Sung to the Happy Wanderer.


    The Miserable Scroller
    (With Apologies to Friedrich Wilhelm)

    My scroll saw goes a wandering
    As I cut eight quarter oak
    And it cuts, I scream and shout
    THIS SCROLL SAW IS A JOKE

    Chorus:
    Piece of crap, hunk of junk
    Piece of crap
    Hunk of junk that should be in a trunk.
    Piece of crap, hunk of junk
    THIS SCROLL SAW IS A JOKE

    My scroll saw wanders through most any wood
    That I could ever use.
    The cut is rough not any good
    I think I blew a fuse

    <Chorus>

    My scroll saw goes a wandering
    But it just won’t go and die
    Until is does I’m stuck with it.
    Something better I cannot buy.

    <Chorus>

    I placed saw my behind the car
    And backed up with great speed.
    The saw’s not any worse for wear.
    But repair my car will need.

    <Chourus>

    At the tool shop I go a wandering
    Finding a saw my wife could buy.
    But until it breaks I’m out of luck
    This year another tie.

    <Chorus>

        Hehe nice. While my meagre machine is not up to my expectations (maybe I expected too much or I was just uneducated (probably the latter with a large dose of the previous ) , which btw, I have fixed (by becoming a little more educated and I must add, enlightened, by being here such a short time.),

        Anyhow, I can relate to those lyrics in quite a big way, but regardeless we scroll on. overcoming all obstacles in the way of the wood and our eager hunger for expression in our chosen medium. <cough> scuse the philosophical post, but hey, I am a philathingy sort of fella. hehe nice post.

          I love it Thanks Dave. Although after I got my EX21 I don't feel like this anymore.

            I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

            Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

            He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

            We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
