  • Fretwork and Intricate Scrolling

    Everytime I try to cut intricate patterns with the scroll saw I get breakage of the wood that is not suppose to come out! What am I doing wrong??? I have a Hegner Multimax 18.

    Don't know but could be -
    * Using too aggressive a blade for the thickness & type of wood. You should have 3 to 4 teeth in the wood at all times.
    * Putting sideways pressure on the wood instead of straight into the blade
    * Trying to cut faster than the blade is capable of
    * The wrong kind of wood ... A soft grainy wood won't hold the detail that a hard tightly grained wood will.

    hope that helps

      Not positioning the grain in the right direction could be the problem also.

        Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

        As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

        Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
        I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
        For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

        The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

        Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
