    Hey everyone,
    Just finshed cutting this; it's going to appear in our pattern premium for two-year subscribers (so you're getting a preview). It was a last minute thing (we're past deadline already) and our test cutter fell through, so it fell on me to take one for the team <grin>

    Here at the office, the smallest bit we had was 1/16, and the smallest blade was a I had to improvise a bit (which is why my blade-entry holes are SO big).

    Took me two hours to cut it with all the veins. I'm pretty proud! It's a Volker Arnold pattern.

      Nice job, Bob.

      Hope it didn't wear you out too bad.

      I'll be looking forward to the issue as I just subscribed for 2 years. That pattern looks like it might come in handy for as a gift for a friend of mine.

      Thanks for sharing.

            I am a big fan of Volker's designs. He likes a lot of viening. I hope that pattern will be available to the rest of us also.
            Anytime you need a test cutter I'm sure you might be able to find one in this forum. (ME ME ME) Lots of very helpful people here.
            There seems to be a nice representation of all levels.

              Like I said, Rolf, the pattern is going to be in the Ultimate Scrolling Pattern book, the premium you get for signing up for a 2-year subscription.

              I may have to re-cut it, I'm really not happy with how large those blade-entry holes are...

                Those aren't pilot holes. Those are fireflies and trails that happen to follow prexisting patterns.

                  This ultimate pattern book for 2 year subscribers, you send it to those that subscribe as of when?

                  Or, put another less indirect route: I just got my first issue of my two year subscription, will I receive that bonus?

                    It depends on when you signed up...If I remember correctly, you just signed up, right? If so, you'll be getting it as soon as it's printed and shipped.

                    BTW, through the magic of Photoshop, Jon is going to "shrink" the size of my blade-entry holes <grin>

                      I would say definatly yes, the blade holes look huge! Did you say it was a 1/16th bit, or a 1-1/16th? LOL, The pattern has potential though, Theres not many german shepard patterns out there, and you found one with TWO of the dogs! Dale

                          It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                          I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                          If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

                          I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
