  • If you have questions about making a shell.

    Hello. I am glad to see that some people have already posted pictures of shells that they made using my instructions in the current issue - these remind me a lot of some of the first ones I made. I am putting together a list of frequently asked questions and answers along with some other helpful information on my web site. If you have a question that it doesn't cover then let me know and I will add it to the list - hopefully along with an answer.

      Hi Paul, each curved segment is cut with the table at a bevel angle so that the bottom side of each segment cut is a little larger than the top side. The outline of the larger bottom side is then traced on top of the next wedge as the pattern for the next larger segment. I hope I understood your question correctly.

            G'day Steve, I read on one post that you stated the smaller the angle the tighter the curve. Is that the wedge angle or scroll saw table angle or both? With your angle chart I take it that is the scroll saw table tilt. I attempted a couple prior to receiving your ebook and have posted a pic of my latest attempt using Marine Ply Wood in my Album here, it is approx. 9" diam. Thanks, this is a fun project.

              Thank you Steve, I have the ebook on my kindle fire and I made a shell using some 2by4 that a friend had cut for me and then I cut the segments and got a nice shell made. I really enjoyed making my shell and it is sitting in my room next to my tv... Thank you for all of your instructions and such. Will look at your site at these questions and answers and such. Have a great day Fay
              Have a great day, Fay.

                Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....
