  • My comfort zone

    I believe we all have our "comfort zone" if you will, with our scrollsaws in what we make. Not that I am better or worse in other types of projects, but I like to do fretwork. Give me a warm day, reverse tooth blade, 1/2" to 3/4" piece of wood and a good pattern and I am in srollsaw heaven. This project is a Sue Mey pattern on a 3/4" piece of poplar using a FD-UR-#5 blade. Life is good.

          That's a real nice pattern, and you cut it very well Danny, certainly is your zone.

                      Very neat cuts. I'm with you on the fretwork, though we might dall out on the UR.

                      Good luck

                                Thank you everyone. I guess I just need to scroll more and have more patience with my abilities. You all are amazing...

                                How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                                The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                                I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                                Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                                If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                                Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.

                                Thank you all for the info. Sounds like itโ€™s talent or practice issue not my saws. Wife already gave permission to buy a new one. I will wait tho
