  • 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.

            Glad things worked out.

            I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

            Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

            So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
