            Very nice. I'm with Betty, how big is it? and then, I'm curious how you guys cut such big items? Tricks or tips on how to do it would be appreciated.

                  Rolf it was about 50/50 scrollsaw and hand held saber saw. ( Basicly a hand held scrollsaw)

                  will8989 the standing angel on the right is just under 48" tall and it is the tallest of all the pieces.
                  As for the pattern I made this pattern using Corel home and student from a photo of someone ones manger scene given to me last year. This is the second one I made one last year. I could just rescale it and make it table size but this was a request from a customer of mine. Corel draws vector drawings and these can be scaled up or down once you group everything you have drawn.


                  meflick. There is a lot of back cutting ( cutting into the piece and then without removing the blade spinning the piece and back cutting the waste pieces out.also there are a lot of holes drilled so you can cut back and forth). Some pieces can not be cut because of clearence that's were I use a hand held scrollsaw ( sometimes called a saber saw). I have a Dewalt 788 this has a 22" clearence which helps but not on everything (48" angel)

                        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...
