      I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I hope to be playing with my new toys on 12/26!!!! And if my husband didn't get me any, I'll play with the ones I got him! LOL. Now if I could just figure out this new board I would be all set! MERRY MERRY!!

        Merry Christmas to all,
        I cheated I got my present early last week, a Delta 350sl. Its sure nice not fighting the allen wrench. Having a hard time adjusting from the little Micromark Scroll Saw to 350, but love it.

          Congrats on the new saw. Hope to see some pictures of projects here soon. When a tool gets easier to use we tend to use them more so I expect you to be using that saw more.

                  I have a hard time keeping my card in my pocket, I'm a tool nut as it is and we have plenty of them around the house as my husband was a mechanic before we retired, but MicroMarks tools are alot different.LOL

                  John,
                  Thanks for the congrats. I have done a few ornaments, but can't seem to make the tight neat turns that the little saw made. I'm spoiled. I'm practicing though. It'll be awhile before pictures are posted.

                    Hi Dena,

                    It is very easy to make turns with a scroll saw. There are at least 3 different ways. First, keep the saw running put a little back pressure on the blade and just turn the wood.
                    Second. say that the line going to the corner is # A and goind away # B. Cut to the corner on line A back up a little maybe 1/16 to 1/8" turn in the waist and cut to line B to the corner. A little piece will fall out and you can turn the wood and start cutting again on line B.
                    Third, cut to the corner, back up a little and shave a little off the waist side maybe 2 or 3 times to the corner, this gives you room to turn the blade.
                    Instead of getting a round corner you will get a perfect square corner with the last two.

                      Dena and Mike --- I'm sorry my post and photos in the Beginners Scroll Saw forum have disappeared. I've talked to John about tiny snowflakes from 1/32" plywood (I need dozens and dozens -- even hundreds). Maybe a micro scroll saw could help?
                      Just what I need .........another tool.
                      I could hang it from the ceiling.
                      I could set it beside the kitchen sink.
                      I could set it on the bed.....in front of the sofa.....IN THE BATHTUB !!!!

                          My saw is in the bathroom

                          Nancy - don't joke too much about all the places you can put your tools -- I live in a tiny - really tiny mobil home (10 x 33). My bandsaw is in the kitchen, on the counter, and my scroll saw lives in the bathroom. Mini-lathe is in the living room, next to the computer. Really gotta watch that dust, but space is verrrrry limited. Luckily I live with only a small dog and 4 cats - no humans to complain when I'm scrolling at 2 am. Now - What is Micromark and how do I get a catalog to drool over?

                            Their prices are way too high for things you can find anyplace else BUT they have things you can't find anything else. What you gonna' do?

                            FOUR cats? Four cats in a small home? I thought I was suffering with two cats in a fairly good size home. But my cats are both spoiled rotten "clingers".

                            Have a great '05
