  • New Addition........ TWINS!

    Just got the new addition for my daughter to use (and granddaughter when she's older, just 3 months now) It is a type 1 Dewalt 788, on the left. On the right is a type 2 Dewalt. My daughter has taken an interest and I couldn't pass this saw by. Awesome deal! Looks like 2X sawdust this winter.

      Two saws ? Now that's just plain greedy. You wouldn't catch me being so self-indulgent, no sirreee!

      Oh, I forgot, one's for the family. Yeah, right .

        If you practice real hard, maybe you can learn to use both at the same time - wouldn't that be something to see!!!! Kind of like stack cutting with a difference!

          Doesn't everybody have at least 2 saws?

          I like your ring lamp holder, did you make it.?

            There is a striking resemblance to my twins, except mine arent potty trained yet, theres piles of droppings under both of them! Congrats on the other saw. After you get a few hours on it, do a review of the series 2 compared to the number 1. Dale

              Thought about using one with left hand and other with right but........... don't think so. Wondered if I could use it as a duplicator? My daughter is coming over later this week to try it out. Wants to cut out some puzzles for my granddaughter.

              Rolf - Yes the light holder is homemade. Got a pattern from Meisels about 3 years ago and made it.

                Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

                I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...

                Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...
