          Great job on that Derek. Feels great to cut your own patterns, doesn't it?

            That looks good to me, Derek. No advice on portraits from me though, since I've never done one - kinda feeling left out at the moment with this flood of first portraits ...

              Thanks for the comments. It does feel good to cut something of your own.
              Frustrating, but well worth it. Almost forgot.... Shhhh!!!!! It's a Christmas gift.

                    I have no idea what the measurements of the 18" table are, I can give measurements of the poly max and the 14"....

                    Just Wondering...

                    Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                    With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                    I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                    Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                    I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                    If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...
