  • 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.

  • #2
    Thanks for the link!

      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.

          The new Circular Scroll Saw Designs book form Fox Chapel
          by Tom in Ashland
          Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

          Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

          I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...

          Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...
