  • Scroll Sawing History in America

    Group Members,
    Attached is at least one adobe .pdf file (have had some problems uploading!) which is the beginning of some articles that I will post on the history of Fretwork/Scroll Sawing in America.
    I hope that this information will direct some attention and respect to those who came before us in this great hobby.

    Comments or additional information appreciated.

      Scroll Sawing History in America

      Group Members,
      O.K., I have given up trying to post the article to the web site. Some problem with the site timing out during my upload. I have posted the first segment of the History to my web site.

      http://www.peculiarfretworks.com/HL Wild.pdf

      This is a fairly large file, so if you are on a slow connection like I am it will take some time to load.

          Hi Richard,

          The reason you can't attach the file is because of it's size.
          You are limited to 4.77Mb for a .pdf type file, your file is 5.67Mb in size.

          Thanks for the thread, nice!

          Regards,

            Thanks Richard for the interesting read! I'm looking forward to the others.....

            I think Rich H. might have some of these saws in his collection or at least closely related.

              Upload issue

              Hi Marcel,
              I tried sending files under 3mb in size and they failed, the only file I was able to upload was about .8mb. I have plenty of room on my site for the files.

                    History plus more

                    You just never know what you will find on Ebay these days. I didn't expect to see this. It starts out with some history behind the scroll saw. Then it goes into a long discussion about scroll saws, differences, and a bit on how to use them. It's sort of hard to read because it's not broken into paragraphs, but it's sort of interesting none the less.

                      Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

                      by handibunny
                      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,...

                      This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

                      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...
