  • 37 Chevy

    Has anyone cut Jeff Zaffino's 37 Chevy? I started it, and it is pretty complicated. Already broke one piece out which will not be hard to replace once I finish it and it's on a backer board. Definitely takes a little planning as to which pieces to cut first. Put a counter by my drill press to count the number of cut-outs. Am over 100 and haven't even put a dent in the project!
    Told my wife this one may drive me to drink! Her comment was, "That's not a drive, it's a short putt"!

      Just looked at the pattern on Jeff's site - Buzz, you're nuts ...

      If you've done a 100 cuts you've only got 1601 to go .....lol You'd better stock up on beer ...

        I should try it, my folks had a 37 Chevy when I was a kid. Looks awful busy though, would take a few days just to cut the holes.

              Got the pattern from Scroller LTD before I had even heard of Jeff Zaffino.

                    FYI... and I learned this the hard way. Count you pieces after the work is done. Leave the bigger pieces IN the work and hold them in place with blue painters tape to give it extra strength while you're still cutting. It also gives your hand a place to rest instead of laying between cutouts and stressing those fragile little lands that might be in the area. I read this about a month ago on a thread here and have used it ever since. I've had almost NO breakouts since.

                      I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                      I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                      Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                      One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                      I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                      Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                      If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
