  • Key Fobs?

    Do any of you scrollers out there scroll key fobs? I had never heard of such a thing but a gentlemen I was talking to tonite said that he sees a guy at craft shows that has a waiting line for people to buy key fobs. He brings a pedal type scroll saw along and makes them while people wait. I think he scrolls them out of maple. Sounds like a lucrative idea. You wouldn't have to make them on the spot but you could show examples and take orders.

    I have made the Jonah and the whale as key fobs,
    I have several Christian patterns that I have done too they go over well.
    You can also do peoples names. I remember seeing someone on here did square letter names, there were pictures and the article was in an older issue of the magazine but I don't remember which. If I find the pictures I will send a link.

          a FOB is --- for all you young whippersnappers -

          Back in my day ---- before God made dirt a watch fob was a small madallion worn on the chain of a mans pocket watch.. They were about the size of a button. I knew a lot of judges that wore their key club emblem as a fob. The pocket watch chain was attatched to a straight metal rod or leather strap that held on to a button hole or a belt loop and the watch was one the other end held into a pocket - The fob was just hung somewhere in the chain aand usually was what the gentalman used to grab ahold of to pull out the watch, Now as to whither he could ever really tell time -- that is another atory ---- And so now Pete--- you know what a fob is.

                  I have cut several key rings similar to those shown above as give aways. I will be at out local fair this coming week to demonstrate scrolling so may make some more. Takes only about 5-10 minutes depending on the length of the name.

                        Now to throw a new twist into this strange conversation... I'll get you all thinking.....
                        I thought they were called watch "bobs" not "fobs". But if you search the net the only watch bobs you find is Sponge Bob??!!

                          Sponge Bob does not live near Australia. I know this because when I watch him on TV, he is standing right side up and we all know those guys way down there in Oz are standing there upside down just hanging off the earth.

                            I've never met the bloke but have seen his TV show. I think it killed at least a thousand brain cells
