  • 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.

                      Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did.

                      My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                      by Redlee
                      New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                      I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.
                      Thanks

                      Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                      Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
