  • Puzzle Template

    Help! I've cut puzzles but have never used a template. Everything has been wild and freehand. Now a friend wants a puzzle of a photo but wants a template cut puzzle for his kids. I'm stumped Where do you find them? I've searched online and everything seems to say "send us money!" or "give us lots of personal information!" I just want to find a template I can print. Who'd a thunk it would be this difficult? Please enlighten me and/or point me in the right direction. Thank you.

      There are template for free here too.

      ...furnishing free scroll saw patterns to the scrolling community since 2002, no joke!

          Fred and Don - Thank you! I found the ones at Arpop and downloaded them. I much prefer the wild go anywhere freehand that I've done before but this one turned out ok. I used the 8x10 and found my lack of line following made this easy project a tad challenging for me but my better half says it turned out well. She's the tester.

            Thanks guys: The blade is not being pinched. I have parts list and diagram, the bearing on the crank linkage are sealed but I have on order a new linkage with bearings. Yes I oil the bushings every couple of weeks. I thought maybe the screws on the upper clamp might worn to much so I removed the two...

            Check the thumb screw in the upper holder. On the end is a tiny screw that must be perfectly flat. If it’s not it won’t grab the blade properly. I replace mine every few years. The problem this time is with #5 blades. The bottom of the blade is not even and I believe that is my problem. The other...
