  • Scrolling Paperpads

    Has anyone scrolled Post-it pads? Today I tried one and results were only so-so. The best blade I had that worked was a FD #3 Scroll Reverse with a sacrifical (sp) backer board. I cut two pad thickness, about 7/16 inch thick. I think I should have only cut one pad at a time.

    Any blade suggestions would be appreciated.

    Hiya Bob,
    I haven't done it, but in reading about doing this technique, I think you want to sandwich the paper between 2 thin sacrificial pieces of wood. I would'n't bother with the reverse tooth blade either, I'd just use a regular skip-tooth.

      When I cut out the 500 snowflakes from card stock I used a #7 blade,
      The stock I was cutting was 3/4 to 1 inch thick.

      I used a smaller blade to start but it offered no benefit.
      The edges are just as smooth with a coarser blade.
      I did use tag board under the stack but no board on the top.

        When I first cut this pattern I sandwiched a stack of green craft paper between 2 pieces of 1/8 baltic birch. The stack has to be very tight. I used a 2/0 reverse blade. The cuts on the paper were very clean and the edges of my wood had an interesting green tinge. I was originally going to use the craft paper for the cards but my wife decided that the wood ornament would be nicer. I cut about 40 of them 6 to 7 at a time 1/16 thick.

          Rolf, thats a nice job, I wish I would have seen this post before I tryed it last Xmas. I am going to show a picture. just to show how small it is. the fret work is awsum. the pattern is from BJ holms. a master pattern maker if i might add. She has made some ornements that I just can't seem to cut. this one is out of 1/8 bb ply. and wish i would have known about the papper thing. I sure would have cut more. in a stack. Thanks Rolf. I will try this in the future. your frined Evie

                  How did you hold the stack together? Once you start to make your last cut around the outside of the pattern, doesn't everthing loosen up?

                    That is really nice. Christmas is my wifes time to decorate and I think she'd relly like one of those. I go back to the USA in July and I plan to fill up a suitcase with some nice BB and may pickup a few others to play with.

                      Nice work Evie,
                      Thanks for giving me the name of the designer I will try and find more of her designs on the web. I didn't know who it was as I got the pattern from one of the magazine foldouts. I like cutting the 1/16 Finish birch, I do all of my ornaments with it. They look delicate but are still pretty tough.

                      For stack cutting the paper I just put a tack in the four corners, peened over on an anvil that pulls the stack very tight. I don't have any problems with it loosening up on the final cuts, actually it takes a little effort to separate the paper when I am done.

                                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.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
