  • Pedal Power

    I am just curious, how many scrollers have pedal powered saws. I really want to build one for scrollsaw demonstrations at our local fair.
    I made one several years ago and learned much from my design flaws.
    I have used a hand fretsaw at the fair and although it does attract some attention, I believe the foot powered unit would attract more. The whole idea is to get more people hooked on scrolling.

    No I don't have a pedaled powered saw, but what I really want to know is: where did you get that pattern from for the welcome sign on the bragging page. I know I have it SOMEWHERE but can't find it. We put up a new mailbox & post and I wanted to make that and hang it from the post. THANKS!!

        I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

        Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

        What I do is look at the index of the book on and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

        Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

        I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

        Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
