    compound cutting: Think of making a chess piece. Draw one view of it on a block of wood. Then a side view on the side of that block of wood. Cut out the front side on the lines. Tape the pieces back together, cut on the lines on the side view and then remove the outside pieces of scrap. What is left in the center is the desired shape.

      Paul if you want to learn about compound cutting on the scroll saw, then jump right in.
      Jim's explanation is right on, and if you visit this link put out by Diana Thompson (the queen of compound cutting in my opinion) you will get a free pattern to try it out, along with a mini tutorial. Have fun. Scroll Saw Patterns by Diana Thompson at Scroll Saw Inspirations

          Diana Thompson did a great job of explaining.
          She is talking about the blade not cutting straight. Most blades have a burr on the right side, what makes the blade cut to the right. You have to move the wood some degree to the right to stay on the line. You no not need a blades with reverse teeth, The pieces what have fuzz on it are trow away pieces. Like she said, she is using a # 5 blade. She also sometimes uses a # 7. Both are Polar blades. When cutting the thick side, make sure you have good speed and push very, very slow into the blade, so that the blade will not bend and starting cutting with a bevel.

              I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....

              by Bill Wilson
              I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

              Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

              And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

              Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....
