  • Here are the two friends of mine


    Both are using a hand frame. This post should have been last instead of first.

    Hey Mike, I know you have scrolled with one of those fretsaws before. It appears that the saw is held pretty much in one position while the work piece is turned. Is that right? I might have to find one of those saws and give it a try myself. Looks like fun.

      Hi Silver Sliver,

      I started as a young man with a saw like that. You move the whole frame up and down and try to keep it level. You don't use blades with reverse teeth and no spiral blades. You move the wood.

      PS Better come back here. It is 50

        Mike -- now that is the way to scrollsaw. I bet they are real good at it too. No fancy Dewalt, Delta P20, Hegner, or RBI for them. They can even scroll when there is a power outage. I couldn't do that.

          Mike - I just now saw that you're in SD. When husband was in Air Force we had 3 assignments in ND, two 3 year stays in Minot and one 5 year stay in Grand Forks. We loved every minute in the "Northern Tier" ... even the cold ones. It's a great place to live.

            I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

            Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

            What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

            Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

            I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

            Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
