    Well by now everyone should know I like to look for free patterns online.
    I guess a few thousand isnt enough
    I was fortunate enough to have someone send me a link to Pedrofrets site
    He has a collection of incredible old public domain patterns which he has scanned and put on his site.

    Check them out.

    Oh check out the old books he scanned too

    If Pedro still stops by this site:

    Thanks Pedro. Keep up the good work. Very complex patterns.

    As I recall, your scroll sawing in Spain does not attract a lot of support, but hang in there, it will get better.

    BTW: Good luck to Spain on June 14 aginst Ukraine in Liepzig.

      It's a fabulous resource, and part of all scrollers' heritage.

      Many thanks for making it available, Pedro.

        Hi all,

        I am glad you like them. I hope people sends me pictures of those projects once finished.

        Yes I stop by here from time to time. Lately I haven´t had much time or energies for scroll saw but I want to continue designing new patterns soon. I have already finished three designs that have been half done for a very long time, a pattern of the Giralda, a Ferris Wheel and a victorian bridge. The bridge is a computer reconstruction of a very old pattern I found. I am waiting for the people who are making the prototypes to send me the pics of the finished projects to include them in the web.

        And yes scroll saw world here is really small, just a few people in the whole country, but internet is great to contact people from anywhere.

        Pedro.

          Hello Pedro,
          Nice to see that you dropped by. Are you working on the Milan Cathedral jet? I just saw on the Dutch news that Holand won with 1-0. Good luck with Spain.

            no, I am not yet working with the Milan Cathedral

            Hi Mike,

            no, I am not yet working with the Milan Cathedral, I still have to finish a few things before going for that one. The old patterns are quite messy and the drawings are not very accurate, to say the least. There are instructions in italian, german, english, french... there are hand written notes in dutch... reading this is not a problem, but then I have to order all the mess. I also need to borrow an A3 scanner to take everything into the computer, where I can handle it in a reasonable way. Then I have to repair the pieces one by one, a lot of work, but also fun. When I am done with it it will be an easy pattern to follow and finish for anyone, the pieces will have different colors depending on the section they go, and it will only be a question of time for anyone to complete. But for sure I am not going to have them ready soon...

            By the way I have an old brochure that describes the Milan Cathedral pattern. In this brochure there are also two massive patterns comparable to the Milan Cathedral. One is called ¨La grande certosa di Pavia¨, this is a cathedral next to an italian monastry I think. It is also huge and amazing. The other pattern is a huge gothic altar (6 feet and a 4 inches high) full of extremely intricate details. To my knowledge, these are the three largest scroll saw patterns ever published. I would like to get more information about these and copies of the patterns (they are very old and thus public domain).

            You once mentioned the chucrh in Ulm (Germany), that your Belgian friends also completed (am I right?), but I have no references to this one or to which brochure it belongs.

            Pedro.

              Best of luck

              Hi Pedro,

              Thanks for your dedication to these patterns.

              I also wanted to congratulate you on the fact that a theater company wants to use your pattern of the Eiffel tower for a scenery, and make it 30 feet high.

              Good luck on that project.

              Respectfully,
              Marcel

                Thanks Marcel,

                I sent the Eiffel Tower pattern to this woman in the sceneries company a few days ago. She promised me a pic of the finished project in the theater and I must admit I am very eager to receive it. I will share it as soon as I have it.

                Pedro.

                  At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                  The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                  Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
