  • Rhode Island Tru-Quarter™

    Not sure how many of you know that my other hobby is making fountain pens and rollerballs, but I cut out the state quarters and cast them in a resin to create these unique one-of-a-kind gifts! So i thought i would share the Rhode Island State quarter. However, this isnt just a regular thickness quarter that i cut out, it has been shaved down about a third the thickness of a normal quarter and then cut out using my dremel 1680 scroll saw. C & C welcome!

    Wonderful work!
    OK - how do you shave down the quarter before you scroll it?

      Why do you have to shave them down? Full size you can mtg them for a chain or key chain. Awful thin to cut and not bend.

        the shaving process is kept under wraps, thank you for the compliment though!

        Jim , I have to shave them thin because i am working within a certain tollerance of thickness, then once i am done cutting them out, they are bent around a tube and cast in resin. Feel free to check out my website to see how the pens look, it might make more sense

          Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

          I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

          This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

          I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

          Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

          How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...

          I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.

          First I didn't mean to stir up a hornet's nest. Sorry for that. I will share that Kaylee Schofield reached out to me after my post (not sure if this forum or Facebook. From my past experience with her, she cares. I do believe she will address this issue. I do not think she is the type of person...
