    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

                          I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                          My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                          None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                          The bags seem easier on the surface.
                          But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
