  • compound scroll saw

    Has anyone tried the compound saw patterns? I purchased the book by Sam Keener and the instructions are brief and I can't get them to turn out? Any help? Thanks

    Just exactly what seems to be going wrong? Pretty much, you cut one side, Tape the pieces back on then cut the other side. Only thing I can figure from what info you've given is that you aren't getting the pieces properly aligned.

      The patterns are designed to be folded onto two sides of the wood. Make sure you are using the pattern correctly. It works best if you saw the thinner side of the pattern first, doing this in one continuous cut. Make sure you tape the wood together after you cut out this one side just the way it is, dont take anything apart. Now cut the wide side of the pattern, and after you are done, take the wood all apart and inside is the compound pattern come to life.
      Good Luck

        One other thing - make sure the adjacent sides on you block of wood form a perfect 90 deg anble with one another or the side and top profile wont line up properly and you'll get a skewed cut

          :-/Help! I'm also having a problem with Sam Keener 3-D patterns!! Other patterns have the 'fold' line on them. Mr. Keener's does not!? Do I need to make 2 copies of pattern Or just find the most likely place for the fold?? I would appreciate a clarified answer!? Thanks a bunch!!!

                Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....
