  • Just Finished

    I know this isn't scroll saw work - but I just finished this frame and had to post. This photo was entered in a Fur Rondy contest this year and was placed just outside the Co-Op I belong to and I had to look at it for 2 weeks, and the more I looked at it the more I fell in love with the photo. I was fortunate enough to contact the photographer and for a small donation to a waterfowl conservation group I was able to obtain the picture. The picture is of a red necked grebe and was taken at Potters Marsh which is just south of Anchorage. The picture was actually a mistake - the gal that took it had some settings on her camera out of whack or out of adjustment, anyway she messed around with the photo and this is what it wound up to be. I had the matting done at Micheal's and did the frame myself. Started with 1 inch oak, planed it down to 3/4, cut the cove on my table saw, and added the 1 inch trim on the outside as well. I put 2 coats of natural wood stain and 3 coats of semi-gloss lacquer on it.

        Thanks Larry and Rolf - the picture is really cool. I learned some very important lessons on this frame - I know why it is so expensive for a "real" frame. The frame is quite simple when you get down to the basics but its still very time consuming. Another lesson is - don't leave yourself an extra 2 inches of material when you need 4! Finally - if your trying to remember the dimensions it means you should get your tape measure out and use it, that's how you wind up needing 4 extra inches instead of 2 inches.

          The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

          When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
          Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

          Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
          by mccrookston
          First time posting.
          I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
          I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
          Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
          Any ideas on what might be causing...

          That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

          I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
