  • 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
          Jim

            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!

                    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.

                      Just looking at The New Scroll Saw Handbook by Patrick Spielman and found a picture of this saw on page 47. Make is unknown and photo was submitted by a Henry Aldinger. Is submitted as an early electric scroll saw.
