    Intertwined Circle Pattern

    After I cut this pattern, I started to wonder what it would look like if I "Freed" the pattern from the outside coin. I don't know if it is better or not, but I like it. I pictured the before and after.
    (I tried a marathon session to try to finish most of this in one session, so the cutting started getting a little sloppy as I fatigued and started to hurt. If I ever do it again, I'll cut it over days instead of hours.

    There are 62 cuts in the initial design and cut on an Eisenhower. This is somewhat of an optical illusion, your eye might immediately see flowers inside of circles, but if you looks closely, the whole pattern is just interwoven circles.

    That is amazing. I can't imagine cutting something so intricate.

    Very nice work and I don't see anything sloppy about it. Not sure which version I like better. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.
    Thanks for sharing.

    Looking good Randy! Yeah I don't see anything there I would consider sloppy. I can tell you I don't believe my old eyes and hands could do what you do. Thanks for showing us.

    You've outdone yourself again, Randy. That's a really nice cutting job. Like Carole, I wish I was as sloppy as you.

    Gee, I wish my sloppy cutting looked like yours. 😁. I love the intricacy of the design, and admire your constant pushing the envelope. Truly a treat for the eyes.

    Thanks guys: The blade is not being pinched. I have parts list and diagram, the bearing on the crank linkage are sealed but I have on order a new linkage with bearings. Yes I oil the bushings every couple of weeks. I thought maybe the screws on the upper clamp might worn to much so I removed the two...

    Check the thumb screw in the upper holder. On the end is a tiny screw that must be perfectly flat. If it’s not it won’t grab the blade properly. I replace mine every few years. The problem this time is with #5 blades. The bottom of the blade is not even and I believe that is my problem. The other...
