  • New Cutting for core-eagle

    Here is my second attempt with spirals. FD-SP-FE-#1. Thank you gayle for the pattern! My wife is a BIG orca fan! (None here in Montana though). Pattern is cut on 1/8" 5-ply cherry plywood (stack cut 3 total) with textured felt as a backer. Still deciding on frame. Pattern was fun to cut. My 1 month old granddaughter was out in the shop while I was cutting this. Yes I was babysitting while she napped.

    Great job on the cutting. Awesome pattern too!
    I love North West art. I find the Native interpretation of nature through the geometric ovoids is fascinating. I really do take offense when I hear people say "primative art" The discipline is far more advanced that it seems.

    There is a great carver on the WCI site by the name of Alfie Fishgap You may want to check his work out too.

    Keep up the great work Tim.

      Tim looks like you did a fine job! The question is how did you like the blades? I don't remember if they are the same size/type spiral you used on your last project. I know I have found the FD-FE #1 blade to be a bit more aggrressive then the New spiral 2/0, but not by much. The big difference is the flat end compared to the twisted end of the New spiral especially when you go to load them!

      Keep em coming Tim!!

          WOW Tim you say you did that with a spirale. that looks great. how did you do your lines so straight. mine always come out so jagged. nice work. I think any frame work would look nice. sence you ask though, how about a carved one or a sand one. like a routed frame with some sand glued on. then laquered. looks great. so proud. your frined Evie

            Nice spiral job. It took me awhile to figure out where the whale was until I read the reply about it being primitive art. I'm good at reading books, but art...., it has to be simple for me to understand.

            I have used the new FD 2/0 spirals a little on my last couple projects and have learned to control them quite well. However, I still prefer the flat blades. My spirals were inconsistent in that once I figured out the tension I assumed it would and should be the same for all the blades from the same pack. First couple blades, no problem. The next couple, tensioning the same, snapped before I got the saw running. This never happens to me with the Olson flat blades. Each to his own I guess but I'll still use spirals, but just for veining or widening out a cut.

              Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
              HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...

              My kids always call me since I am the one who probably did the stuff they are calling about.

              I know it's scary to get that call, but I'm glad to hear the charge exited where it did before it went any further.

              Welcome to the forum from TN. As a Pegas Distributor, Pegas has the Super Skip blades which works perfectly with acrylics at a reduced speed.

              Welcome to the group. I look forward to seeing more of your work. You will probably need to slow down you scroll saw when cutting the urethane on the scroll saw. If the blade gets to hot it will fuse back together.

              thanks for the kind words - I'm not really a scroller "enthusiast", per se. I like to make dimensional signs and have always used the band saw, routers, or Roto-Zip to cut the elements out then do some handcarving to perk them up a bit. I'll put some of my projects in my folder later on....
