    C note

    I always thought a C note was a hundred dollar bill, so if you want I will come tension your blades for a C note.

    I saw in some other post awhile back that it should make a "C" note. Not knowing what the heck that meant I asked my musician wife and she laughed at me with no answer that followed when I plucked my blade looking for some sort of affirmation. For me if my wood isn't chipping., splitting, chirpping or doing any else I don't want it to do I assume it is okay. Just begginners advise to what I will guess is a scrollers age old question.

    Hi Bob,

    Like they said before, I very nice high ping sound. If the blade moves more than 1/8" side ways you don't have enough tension.
    It is better to have a little too much than not enough.

    Tone Deaf

    Bob.....Just tension the blade so that when plucked with a finger it rings. Sort of a "diiing"!! No particular musical note that I'm aware of....just a ding!!

    Blade tension for the tone deaf

    Hey everyone,
    I was "practicing" some more during my lunch hour and realized I need some help. I'm tone deaf (ask anyone who's heard me try to sing) and all the suggestions I've seen for adjusting blade tension tell you to tension it until the blade make a musical note. I can't tell one note from another!

    How should I tension?

    Bob

    Worth a try, but very rarely works. During the install in windows, the software registers links (for want of a better word) which are required for it to operate. install is what is needed...

    I clean it up and stuff regularly. If I do a lot of typing, spreadsheets, etc., I use the computer as itโ€™s faster for me but take the tablet to shows and markets to post from there. I also use my rapid resizer program on the tablet when I want to change a pattern and am downstairs. I really need a...

    Rolf, if your Picassa file works I want it!!! They cram so much into newer programs that it just complicates things and takes away intuitive stuff. Thank you for checking!
