      Very nice work. My daughter would love that thanks for the Idea How hard are the clocks to make? I have never taken the time to try, but since the most recent issue came out the temptation is greatly enhanced....

        Very nicely cut Kofte. Nice contrast there between the canary and blood woods.

          Thanks, y'all.

          CraftyNYSroller, It's not one I'd want to start with, as there are a few potentially tricky veining cuts around the legs (imagine cutting the outside within 1-2mm of the veining line 15" away while the blanks is stuck in your stomach :-) )but it wasn't what I'd call very difficult. I didn't keep records, but I'm estimating about 16 hours at the saw for two of them (stacked). I've got a detailed summary on my blog site at http://scrollsawblog.com:8085/scroll...g/?page_id=540, along with some more pictures of it from different angles. There's several other posts related to the clock as well. If you've got any questions about it, feel free to ask.

            When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

            I've...

            Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

            Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

            Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
