  • Reduce or Enlarge Your Patterns

    If you need to figure out the percentage for changing the size of your patterns. Here is a site online that has a good calculator.

      If you don't have a computer available.. make a 3x5 note card with this formula..
      ND= New Dimension; OD= Old Dimension (original)

      (OD / ND) x 100 = % to plug into copier

      eg: if you have a 12" tall original and want it to fit a 6" board, the numbers would calculate out as:
      (12 / 6 ) x 100 = 50%

      Hope that helps

        I noticed you are new to this site, and seem to be reading some older posts.

        So Welcome. I hope you enjoy your visits.

        Would be so kind as to go over to the Welcome Members area and post a few words about your self? You know, type of saw, if you like fret work, portrait work, intarsia, so forth. Take a photo of some of your work and post tgem on the 'scoller gallery' section. If you are shy about posting your work, say so, we do understand.

          I tried a house vac once for a dust collector. It was prone to clogging the lines and when I tried to put a cyclone can on it the vacuum collapsed the garbage can.

          I found this pattern in Steves catalog and freehanded a vase form. This one may appeal to the folks that bought the butterfly vase.

          Sorry took so long to answer. The brown vase I added butterfly instead of doing wood burning. Wanted to keep them so they would appeal to several people. I sold all of them to a flower shop....

          Being younger than 65, with no qualifying health conditions, I don't anticipate getting a vaccine for some time. My wife works for the school district, so she may be eligible in the next phase. President Biden says that supply will be sufficient for all US adults by end of May. I'm hoping that proves...
