  • some little things

    here are some little things we have been working on:
    God Bless Our Home in Spanish for you my fellow scrollers.
    this plate was a gift for our neighbour, there are like four types of wood in there.

    this next project was a perpetual calendar
    the number are vinyl stickers, i tried to cut the number but could not with the letters so i decided to do it like that. i will have preffered<<ahem>> used a laser to cut the numbers and letters but that would have been too expensive for what i had plans to charge for that: about 10 USD

    desktop decoration
    i gave this one to the guys who run a local hardware store, that i buy from, they are quite helpful and besides, they give me credit!, dont know if thats a good idea. anyway, the saw actually moves and makes a rattle noise with the wrench, i did not planned that till i was putting it all together, otherwise i would have put a little motor behind the saw to make it more interesting.

    Desktop Set
    this one was commissioned for a local government forestry agency, they always want their logo and the names of the persons who the gift are going to, so we have to burn them with laser, its expensive but they paid so no problem, whenever we can we sneak the scrolled logo, like in the top of the box. and besides, they deal with lumber, (they are the ones who certified the forests to be cut) and sometimes we get little pieces of timber from there.

          thank you for all your nice comments!
          and yes, the guys at the hardware store loved it, in fact they were playing with the saw movement and keep doing it till i left there, later my brother show up to the shop and they show it to him, he told me that they guy were still moving that saw/wrench when he left. so i think they liked that.

              yup, those pens are usually given when someone buys the pen holder, as i can not sell them as a normal pen, as they will drip and stain the shirts, i made them with the pen holder so that way people can have them in their desk.

                Our Judges are some of the best woodworkers I have ever met. On occasion I get asked to explain what I look for in the scrolling categories. I point out all of the nuances. I can't be a judge as I have intarsia and scroll work entries.

                There may have been some crud on the tips from manufacturing.
                In the ~20 years of scrolling I never cleaned the ends of my blades until recently. Even with the Pegas clamps I was having some blade slippage, I now scuff the ends of my blades with some 220 grit paper End of problem.!...

                Don’t over sand them as you will shorten their usable life. Only sand as needed. Another thing to do is clear your blades before installing. Blades are coated with oil to prevent rust. Wipe the ends with alcohol or lightly sand with 320 grit.

                The fact that you only had approximately 6 hours on the saw tells me there was a thin oily film on the clamps from the manufacturing process.
                If problem continues you may have spread the clamps in the process of tighten blades. A common problem with OEM parts. This issue will disappear by replacing...
