    That's great! Thanks for the plans. Are you using 'body putty' on the side???

    This looks like the perfect project for one of the grandsons.

          Terry, your the first one I have noticed on this site that uses a scroll saw for model building.

          Model building is mostly why I owned a scroll saw until a year of so ago when I started dabbling with craft woodworking. I used to use my scroll saw almost exclusively for RC model airplane building. I seldom scratch build planes today. I still repair crash damage using the scroll saw to cut the various pieces being replaced though.

            Back in the early seventies I got my first Dremel scroll saw, Won it .
            I used it exclusively for building rc planes. Then about 10 years ago the dremel just was a piece of junk so I up graded to my current craftsman.
            I use it for everything. Great tool!
            No more planes though. My current Scroll saw projects seem to last a lot longer.

            It's all fun

              And I thought I was being bad using my saw for model skiffs.Your tug looks great.I use my saw with a fence a lot cutting the sides,ribs,seats,stern and about the whole model.The wood I use is thin and I get a cleaner cut with the scroll saw.

                My first scroll was a Dremel also. Only mine was a Christmas present when I was 10 years old. I had that saw for over forty years. It sat unused for years at a time though. I used that first saw for modeling way back then as I use my current scroll saw today.

                    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...

                    Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                    Now,...

                    It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                    Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
