  • edge glued panels

    Wanting your opinions, good, bad, or indifferent about 1/4" edge glued panels used for scrollsawing.

    No problem people do it all the time. Use a good carpenters glue and glue properly and should never be a problem. Actually if you glue pieces 3 or 4" apiece you will prevent warping better. Also if you use quatersawn wood will help even more. If I am glueing up panel that will eventually be 1/4" I will make sure I start with about 3?8" and then sand down to 1/ 4" with my drum sander. Very handy tool in the scrollsaw business.

      I do it frequently, too. It makes life easier if you have good clamps that pull the wood squarely together. I've got some Besseys that seem to do the job quite nicely.

      There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

        I often glue up wood to make panels.
        Sometimes I will use masking tape on the back of the seam to hold the seam together while the glue dries.
        You can make a handy panel clamp.
        You may have to place something on the top of the wood to keep it from bowing. I use my 1 gallon glue jug. Not sure what I will use when I run out of glue.

          I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

          That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

          The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

          Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
