  • The pattern, the saw, and the beer

    I started the day with an Ed Hardy pattern, a scroll saw and a 12 pack of beer.

    here is where i am as of now.

    Now I just need to paint them all and reassemble.

    OMIGOSH! What a splendid project - I can't imagine how much TIME that has to take!

      The cutting takes a couple sessions of an hour or two each.

      its the sorting the pieces, sanding and painting that is time consuming and a bit boring.

      I just finished all that and now am just waiting for the stuff to dry so i can reassemble it all. Funny thing that there will always be a piece or two painted the wrong color or on the wrong side or something like that. Then I have to paint just those tiny pieces which will take another day to dry. The worst thing that happens is the cat will knock everything over or the wind will blow everything over then i have about 100 pieces all over the place.

        I haven't looked very closely at your other post but how do you hide the pilot holes?

          I only use a #71 drill bit or smaller so that helps. You can still see some of them but nit much avoiding that. On this project I tried something a bit different where i put the pilot holes completely in the black border figuring it would get painted black anyway.

          This worked alot better then my old technique of putting them as close to the line as i could get.

          The majority of this one was done with a 3/0 metal blade and a #73 bit. That was for the tinier areas.

          For the bigger areas it was a 2/0 and #71 bit.

                            Nice job on an interesting project. The detail is amazing and only another scroller would notice the tiny starter holes. I also agree with Mike that beer(or any alcohol for that matter) is not a good lubricant for power tools even if it is a good lubricant for people.

                              Nice idea. The painting is awesome. Just imagine the project if you drank Yeungling Black & Tan.

                                Hi Tango. What model scroll saw do you have? I know the model I bought used is a 226-M. I can't find any information on it because it'd so old. Right now I'm trying to determine the H.P. of the motor used to run these scroll saws. Can you look on yours to see what H.P. voltage, and rpm the motor is?...

                                He did therapy for 4 weeks then at home for another 2 to get his legs ready for the surgery. The therapist called today her first inhome appointment is Thursday. Hopefully the other knee will be within a few weeks. He has an amazing resolve so I expect him not to need the walker or cane in 2 weeks....

                                I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.
