    May be hard to find in web catalog and McMaster-Carr, but they do have them. **BUT**, hang on to your wallet real tight, they are not cheap.

    I hope you understand I am not jumping on you, I am trying to debate the points of your post. Please, please don't take anything personal about my reply. But some of what you posted really pushed a lot of buttons, and I do hope I have not in turned pushed yours.

    We, as scrollers, are not the only craft where this CNC automation affects the craft / street fair / art show circuit.

    Example,, last time I was at a local craft show, a real nice lady was selling hand embroidery kitchen aprons for the ladies, and young girls. I am sure at many such local...

    replied to Laser scroll saws

    Mike's workshop would be best if you want USA supplier.

    This may not help you, but I thought I would pass it along anyway....

    Keep the back of your hands in-line with you lower forearm; both wrists straight. Just like in ten-pin bowling. Important to keep wrist off saw's table.

    FYI, some people apply the Triple-Thick Glaze before cutting. If you apply after, sometimes the pieces don't quite fit together. This is due the the finish thickness and possible sags and curtain-runs of the finish in-between the pieces. If you have such a situation on one or...

    This is my personal preferences: For intarsia, any eyes and noses should be clear gloss (looks wet and shinny); bird beaks and tusks should be dull satin (so they look used.) However, your project, your choice.

    replied to Where to buy a 788?
    Two worst places:
    Sears tool catalog: about $590.00
    Amazon dot com: about $590.00

    Aside: Amazon now claims the 'New and Improved' mfg retail List Price for a 788 is $952.00, so their 'sale' price of $590.42 will save you $361.63.

    Speaking of Shop Notes, and it's sister magazine WoodSmith......

    The people who do lots of mainstream woodworking with power tools seem to agree the 1st steps...
