  • Oven Pullers

    I am looking to see if its safe to make oven pullers from MDF ?? I am new to the scroll saw.

    If you use 3/4" it may be okay but I prefer hardwoods. I have had problems with mdf breaking others use it alot and are very happy with it.

      Like Mike, I believe it's more of a durability issue than a safety issue. MDF is relatively soft and I would question it's ability to hold up well over time. Solid wood would certainly be a better choice, but it might be worth testing out. I would probably make a couple and try them out for a while before making any to sell or give as gifts.

          I have used yardsticks to make oven pullers. Some full size and some half-size to be used in a toaster oven. Works pretty well for me.

              Forester - I use hardwoods only and don't put a finish on them. I think that MDF is too soft especially on its edges to stand up to oven pull use. Look in the archives for patterns by bubbantenn. They are really neat and work up quickly, and can be made from 8-10" long cutoffs from other projects.

              Titch - an oven pull is a gadget with a notch that hooks over the front edge of the oven rack and lets you pull it out of a hot oven without burning yourself. A second notch in the pull lets you push the hot rack back into the oven.

                Look in the pattern vault you will find several patterns there. Basically it is for using to pull out or push in the rack in your oven to avoid an oven mitt. Mostly a novelty thing but sell very well at craft shows.

                    by cwmagee
                    A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                    Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                    That is...

                    The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                    Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                    The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                    Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
