    A very nice looking shed, indeed! And a round top door, to boot! The only thing missing is a matching fairy door.

      Tanks Jo. If I did the fairy door then I would need to build a tiny mower for the fairy. I built the shed about 2 months after shattering my right elbow. I needed to prove to myself that I could still build stuff. I did buy a pneumatic framing nailer as I couldn't hit the head of of a nail with my left. That was an eye opener.

        I could live in that shed. 😉 Looks like something out of Hansel and Gretel!

          The termites ate the old one. It was fun to design and build.

            I have a Craftsman now. Bought it about 7 or 8 years ago but only started using it the last 3 years or so. It has top and bottom thumb screws and I've really had no issues changing blades. My issue is more due to the tension of the blade. It seems to loosen as I use it and the blade bows back if I go a little too fast in a straight line or sideways as I'm turning. Not an everyday scroller yet while I'm still working so this will still probably last me a while but sounds like I have something to look forward too when it's time to upgrade.

              I've watched many of Alex Fox's videos. You did a fine job on this one. I will have to give it a try....

              Hmm, I read on another message board that the thumb screws are the same size.. and they said they used their screws they had from their old clamp because they had bought some special steel ones with a knurled knob.. so I guess I would assume the screws would work.. then I also read where the only difference...

              I called suppliers of the Pegas blade holder and none of them could answer if parts were available.I asked mainly for the tip replacement on the thumb screw.

              Rolf
              I was never a fan of Craftsman power tools. I always though they were for "homeowner duty" and for most normal usage they are great. For heavy duty usage I go with higher end brands. My dad was a big fan. The only Craftsman tools I used heavily and still do are the mechanical ones, wrenches...
