  • Kittens in a Hammock

    I've lurked on here for a while, but have finally decided to post something. Here's a puzzle I made a few months ago from a poster. It's 19 7/8" x 14 1/2" and 982 pieces. It was cut on the new Jet scrollsaw using Flying Dutchman Superior Puzzle blades.

    Wow, that is amazing. Almost a thousand pieces on something that small.

            Amazing puzzle! And welcome to the forum, please share more of your work as you go along.
            How do you like your new Jet? Especially did you have any issues with clamping those fine puzzle blades?

                The saw is pretty nice, but it is the first of the bigger saws for me. The only thing I have to compare it to is an older Delta Shopmaster which has a really frustrating clamping mechanism and a slight sideways motion to the blade, making it not very accurate. When switching to a different sized blade on the Jet usually the set screws on the clamp require some adjustment, but most of the stuff I do doesn't use many different blade sizes so it's not that much of a hassle for me. After adjusting the set screws to the right depth, the small blades clamp pretty well. The only time I had a problem was when I had the clamp too tight and broke a few blades.
                I find the groove and the larger hole on the table to be of some annoyance when cutting very small pieces, but a secondary table can remedy that.

                Thank you all for the compliments.

                  I admire the pieces, but I have one overriding question: Who's going to be putting it together? I ask myself that question for every puzzle I see here and, for this one, I can't find an answer.

                      The worst is when you're cutting a large puzzle and knock over your table with the cut pieces on it, when you're almost done. Been there. Done that. Sure makes the project take longer. But it's a great triple check QC on fit! Nice work dude!

                        Some family members and I put this one together. It did take close to a week at a few hours a day, but it was fun. One advantage to it being so hard was that it was still very challenging for me the cutter.

                            [What blade for this?]

                            I used a Pegas 2/0 skip tooth blade for this and all my 1/4" plywood puzzles. Any 2/0 blade will give similar results, as long as it is a simple blade which cuts only on the down-stroke. I stick with Pegas because I have found them to be consistent....

                            Are you thinking spray or brush? If it is a big grain you will need to use a grain filler, I have never used a filler so can't help much there. This may help a bit.

                            Rolf, I use White pine or Cedar but the most important aspect is the painting technique. I always put on a white primer, use fine steel wool to remove imperfections, Apply exterior outdoor paint, rub fine steel wool after each application when dry and final finish I apply clear poly ( spray can )...
