    Ian, the tiger pattern is my own. I like the way the pattern turned out but I'm having a dickens of a time cutting it! I did find one weak spot during cutting that I'll have to correct in the pattern.

    I started out trying spirals and continue to have the same problems. Mostly, I struggle getting them secured in the saw. I don't know whether that's a problem with the saw, the blades or me.

    Anyway, after trying about three frets, I gave up and went back to flat. The spirals weren't giving me the detail I expected anyway. One of the pattern aspects I like is that the fur is 'spiked' rather than just smooth lines. The spiral was just chewing the hell out of 'em.

    After cuttting for 2 hours my back was screaming at me. I'll pick up again tomorrow. Right now I heading for the massage chair to ease my aching back.

    Mike, I've tried spirals for the third time and I've got better control over the cut now but still don't like them. Not quite ready to give up on them though.

    Thanks for the answer Mike. I might try them one day but I'm not sure what I would like to cut with them.

    Mike, nobody says you have to use spirals. I sure wouldn't.

    Ian, great job, even if you did use spirals.

    Diane, you are right. You can't cut tight crisp corners with spirals.

    Ian, thats not a bad thing to get stuck on the way you cut them out.
    Nice work

    Dog-gone that's nice. How long did it take?
    I'm working up to doing my first portrait. I've got to work out the details, (I'm trying to do a pic of my sisters chocolate lab). The only thing I've used spirals for are the good old slanted letters trick. I'd like to do the Easter egg in the latest issue of SSWC. That needs spirals as well.

    I've never used spirals. I will someday try it. Doesn't the blade cut wide in corners?

    Thanks Mike.

    Which tiger pattern are you cutting?

    I'm trying to pluck up the energy/stamina to cut Sue Mey's leopard drinking - but I may do something else first ..lol It's got nearly 1200 holes! That's nearly 5 times as many as this mutt ..

    Perhaps, we could hear from Fox. Maybe they could try some things and see if it makes things better. Or, they can just keep doing the things the same way.

    This is a case were the publisher can't win.

    I personally like the patterns to be printed at the artist's intended size if at all possible. Let me decide to reduce or enlarge. If I don't have the equipment to make a copy at 100%, that's my problem not the publishers. We all have our own...

    The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

    I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

    IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
