  • My frist Intarsia

    I made this intaria magnet from a picture in big book of intarsia woodworking page 117 by Janette Square. I changed it some and made it from redwood and walnut.
    It"s 1/2 t x31/2w x 7long I think i made it to big as I had to use 3 magnets to hold it up. Lance

              Great job! Especially getting the fit. I can't take credit for the design - I found it on a free online stained glass pattern site I believe. Have you tried the rare earth magnets? They're really small and REALLY strong. You can find them at Lee Valley. Even my kitty can't knock them off the fridge.

                  Thank's for all the kind words, I well have to get some rare earth magnets.
                  I'll be glad when I can stay on the line without running my saw as slow as it can go.

                    I'm impressed with the tightness of your seams, especially considering it's only your fifth piece...!!
                    Great piece of work...!!!!!!!

                    By the by, you can also get rare earth magnets at Harbor Frieght, if you have one local.....

                      You might actually find it easier to control if you crank the saw to full speed.

                            by cwmagee
                            The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

                            When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
                            Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

                            Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
                            by mccrookston
                            First time posting.
                            I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
                            I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
                            Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
                            Any ideas on what might be causing...

                            That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                            I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
