  • First finished jigsaw puzzle.

    Finished my first jigsaw puzzle for a motorcycle racer. This turned out to be 8"x10" with 35 pieces and it is on 1/4" Birch Plywood. I used a .070 pinned blade on this one. That was the smallest pinned blade I could find readily available.



    Thank you

    Nice. Now you are hooked. Guaranteed! Try using Flying Dutchman Puzzle Blades on 1/4" birch. They are the "standard" for these kind of puzzles.

        Jim, It looks to me like you did a pretty fine job. Congratulations on No. 1.
        Hope to see you around more.
        What kind of saw are you using?

          Hi John, I was using my Harbor Freight Scroll Saw. It worked well. But I can't wait for the DeWalt to get to my house today. Then I want to try it again and see what the differences are.

          Thanks

            1. You'll never go back.
            2. You will love your DeWalt and you'll decide to keep your first saw . . . . just in case
            3. You'll never go back..


            That's great. We'll be looking for more puzzles!

                I know my 1st puzzle was not as good as this. Great job! Hope to see your 2nd soon.

                    Thanks everyone, I did get the dewalt put together and cut out some Christmas Trees and Christmas Stars over the weekend. It seems like I'm able to cut them out quicker than with the HF. I will still keep the HF in case someone wants to try it to see what scroll sawing is all about.

                      Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                      Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                      Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                      HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
