  • glue removal

    can some one tell me how they remove their patterns after without leaving fuzzies from the cloth. I find that when I spray clear coat on my projects that it leaves fine hairs that are noticable. Any suggestions would be a help.
    thanks kes

    Kes, I use Mineral Spirits to remove the pattern and if I feel any glue residue on the wood I use a little more MS and wipe off with a lint free rag. If by chance I notice any fibers after spraying on the finish I use a super fine sanding pad (found at my local hdwe) to touch up those rough spots or knock the fibers off.

      Kes, I sand the wood to 320 or 400 grit then apply lavender masking tape to the wood. Then glue the pattern to the tape. I can leave it on the wood for days and not have a problem removing the tape and pattern.

        I use the same process as Paul except that I substitute fine store bought sand paper with a section of paper bag for the final touch up.

          Our Judges are some of the best woodworkers I have ever met. On occasion I get asked to explain what I look for in the scrolling categories. I point out all of the nuances. I can't be a judge as I have intarsia and scroll work entries.

          There may have been some crud on the tips from manufacturing.
          In the ~20 years of scrolling I never cleaned the ends of my blades until recently. Even with the Pegas clamps I was having some blade slippage, I now scuff the ends of my blades with some 220 grit paper End of problem.!...

          Don’t over sand them as you will shorten their usable life. Only sand as needed. Another thing to do is clear your blades before installing. Blades are coated with oil to prevent rust. Wipe the ends with alcohol or lightly sand with 320 grit.

          The fact that you only had approximately 6 hours on the saw tells me there was a thin oily film on the clamps from the manufacturing process.
          If problem continues you may have spread the clamps in the process of tighten blades. A common problem with OEM parts. This issue will disappear by replacing...
