  • New Talent

    Wow we are getting some great new talent to the scroller's galleries. I like to thank Bri, Little flower, and Hans for showing us their work. Look forward to seeing more of yours and other new members work. I love checking people's work out and seeing what others are working on.

    I urge anyone who comes to read the posts to click on the galleries and enjoy the show. Keep up the good work people.

    By the way Bob hurry up with the SPOON because I need a Fork to go with it and we are all getting hungry here. We have the pizza puzzle but we need utensils.

    Now just hold on there John....

    I know you are waiting...

    but 1st things 1st, we must keep focused on what is realy important here.

    Since Gill now has her copy of issue 19, Bob and all the others at SSW need to be focused on issue 20. We mustn't be late with issue 20.

    When Bob and the others have issue 20 on the streets, then he wil be fee to work these other projects.

      Well, Phil and JT...I've been working on my spoon over my lunch hour, so it won't affect SSW 20...but WCI 32 is also just around the corner <grin>

          Yup, Shannon Flowers and I will be there--it's in our backyard, so I'd be remiss to miss it...and I'd probably never hear the end of it <grin>

              I think my friends, who are getting married next weekend, will have a much more intense discussion with me if it's not done next week. I will say that the scroll saw cut down my labor time by at least 2/3. I've practiced enough to get a real feel for the lines--in most cases. The instructor I had said to think about it this way--when you first start driving, so white-knuckle the wheel and struggle to keep the car between the yellow lines and the white line. But as you drive more, you get better and better, and start looking ahead of you--so it's easier to stay between the lines. If you look at scrolling the same way, you should know where the line is--knowing where it is makes it much easier to follow the line--if that makes any sense.

                If what you mean is that you should be looking at the line ahead of the blade and not at the blade on the line, then I think that's about right. You need to know where you're going, not where you already are.

                  I just learned another improtant lesson for Scrolling (and carving). Look at the materials list-- I photocopied the pattern for the spoon I was carving at 100%--which made the spoon about 9 inches long. I've had a devil of a time carving it--then I looked at the materials list--it's supposed to be 14 inches long--that means you need to copy the pattern at 160%...ARGH back to the carving bench, sigh. If only I could carve as fast as I scroll!

                    This spoon is getting to be some project. You know you are going to take on some heat at the picnic for sure. When and if and that is a big IF you get this golden spoon done we want pictures. Pictures BOB Could have went to Walmart and gotten a set of plastic spoons by now. (YOU know we are just kidding right BOB HA HA ) Talk about being born with a wooden spoon in the mouth.

                      Diamond cutting blades querie

                      Thanks jttheclockman for the reference to my work. It's fun trying to think outside the square from time to time. I have a friend who wants to know if he can purchase a diamond cutting blade for the likes of cutting stone, glass, mirror type media anywhere. What would be involved in cutting these materials?
                      Cheers. Teresa .

                        You can buy such a blade but it would require a wet system to keep the blade cool. You need a drip system to apply a water spray and a means to catch it so not to get all over. I know Micro-Mark carrys them and even have a saw that is a small fret saw set-up. I am sorry I do not have their web address in front of me. But if you did a google search I am sure you would get many more hits.

                          Hi John,

                          The web site is: www.micromark.com. In their catalog on page 4 they show a cooling system but it is for a small band saw.
                          Diamond blades might cost from $ 28.00 to $ 35.00 each.

                          Little Flower. If you could come to the Branson picnic, you could talk to Gail Jennings. He uses a scroll saw and cuts glass with a cooling system.
                          There is an article in SSW Summer 2004 by Gail about cutting glass and how to make a drip tank system.
                          Maybe Rob could tell us if any issues are left at Fox.

                            If you click on the Back Issues link, it'll tell you if there are any left...But it looks like it is out of stock. I'd e-mail our customer service department ([email protected]) to see if they have any extras...
