    I did use CA, but I don't know if that is the best way. I wish I had a Jeweler friend to bounce ideas off of. I suspect the professional would have used silver solder, or perhaps used their pneumatic graver to create a metal lip over the top, I'm not sure. The gravers are expensive, so that wouldn't...

    Double Bevel Inlay

    Ok, I'm sure some of you were hoping this was in wood . . . in time, I'll get back to wood, but I just need to get metal out of my system first. In any case, you have to admit, you have probably never seen this done with coins before :-)

    The gold/bronze inlayed coin is a Greek 100 Drachma,...

    I was already short on space, but got the welding bug, and bought a cheap lotus tig/plasma cutter. Playing with fire, now that is fun. It actually works pretty good, but should have bought the AHP as it is the best feature rich TIG in that price range and it does AC so you can do aluminum if you wish....

    Which printer did you settle on? I think Steve D Good has been playing with his "Monoprice" brand. Those printer are getting down to the "Impulse Buy" buying point. There are so many to chose from, it hurts my brain....

    Carole, here is your Dime . . . .

    I have a few first here as I've never cut a nickel nor a dime. Oily warned by off of Nickels a long time ago, so I've been avoiding them. Decided to try one today, and it is fitting because it was a warmup for the dime, which is the smallest coin I've ever cut. I know it's hard to get a feeling for...

    Carole, thanks for the compliment. You know, I think I might be able to do a bowl, and believe it or not, I've been thinking about it. At coin scale, it is more accurate to follow the outside of the pattern line (not try to cut center of the line), so the calculations might be a little funky. I'm trying...

    These blades don't last long. I've been experimenting with a different blade/drill bit lube, but haven't come to a clear conclusion to it's effectiveness. I probably went through 8 blades, but it could have been 16. Those breakages don't even phase me any more, I just do a quick change, and enjoy how...

    Steve Good Music Heart on Coin

    Saw where someone had cut this pattern from Steve Good so I thought I would try it on a coin.



    If you are curious to see how these cutting go, you can see some rough footage here:

  • Wow, for someone looking for a good deal on a Hegner with all the bells and whistles, this would be the one to buy. It looks to be if very good shape.

  • EX is too high, but that Jet is an excellent deal. I'm surprised it is still listed.

    Mindy, speaking of digital subscriptions, I notice that the first 36 SSWC mags are available on three different CDs for about $36/cd. Any chance we can get a deal for the purchase of all three? :-)

    There was a article in issue 19 about doing dovetails on the scrolls I would love to see,...

    replied to Blade Length
    The ARM on the Excalibur, Seyco, and Jet can be adjusted up with that back knob. This would introduce blade travel which could be tweaked back out again. This would be helpful for me on the puzzle boxes where my saw is maxed out on height, but I'm not used to the Olsen blades, so I would have to figure...

    Guess, what, Olsen does make a 6" blade. I thought I heard that Seyco may start selling a 6" also, not sure if that would be the Olsen or not.

    Take a look: https://www.olsonsaw.net/shop/scroll...des-6-in-long/

    There may be other brands that do this, I'm not sure

    Trying a Penny

    I very rarely cut a penny, less than 4 ever I think. Thought I would give it a shot. I don't need a cheater for anything down to a quarter in size, but the penny falls well outside that tolerance, buy hey, look at that pretty cheat piece. Made a nice bonus piece too. The cheater in this case was...
