    Hi Chris,

    I am glad that your drawer pull question got answered. The arrows for cut direction were not printed when the book first came out.

  • Hi Dan,

    You did a great job on the joinery for your Pen/Pencil box. Box joints are easy and come out real good on the scroll saw, especially if you practice with scrap 1/4" stock first. I have a Delta 4" x 36" beltsander and use it with an 80 grit belt to sand the sides...

  • Good looking work on those coasters Dale. Lately I have been working on many inlay designs for projects and you will see those designs in the future.

    It seems that once you get the inlay angle correct for your saw you can do just about any inlay design you want and have it look good...

    replied to another question for Gary MacKay
    As the previous append says just use 1/4" scrap wood to practice inlays, before you commit your good wood to the project. There are several factors that play into making a good inlay, like blade size, your table angle, and the thickness of the wood.

    Hope that answers your question....

  • Hi Kathy,

    Those Autumn Leaves Coasters look great. I have specified that you use a #68 drill bit so that you can make the smallest possible hole and still get a 2/0 blade through. It may not seem like much, but, a 1/16" drill bit is .0625" and a #68 drill bit is half of that...

  • Kevin,

    Thanks for all of your plugs about the Box-Making Projects for the Scroll Saw book. I tried to create projects for the book that would be easy to do regardless of your scroll saw ability.

    Strangely, I still need to refer to the book if I am making one of the boxes...

    replied to Question For Gary MacKay
    KathyRo,

    Yes, you can make these coasters if your scroll saw table only tilts to the left. You just need to cut in the opposite direction.. You should take some scrap 1/4" thick wood to make practice cuts until you get a good fit.

    replied to Sit or Stand
    Hi Gary,

    I also sit when I run my scroll saws. I removed both saws from their stands and made my own scroll saw stands out of plywood and 2" x 4"s. This way I can have the correct height for me when I sit at each saw. Now if I can learn to run two scroll saws at the same time,...

    replied to Windows Vista
    Hi Toni,

    I also had a computer that had Windows XP and it died about 4 months ago. All the computers that I looked at came with Vista, so I had no choice but to buy it with Vista. My first problem, like yours was the printer. No driver for the printer I tried to hook up. I was very lucky...

  • Keith,

    I do a lot of work on my scroll saw, so standing is not an option. I made my own simple stand out of 3/4" plywood and 2" x 4"s. I sat in my chair and measured to get the proper height for the table that the saw bolts to. I also use a lighted magnifier lamp. I have...

  • Gill,

    I have done quite a bit of inlaying in 1/4" and 1/2" thick wood. I seem to get the best results using the thinnest blade. For me that's a 2/0 blade. The thinking is the smaller the saw blade kerf, the tighter the fit. I use a No. 68
    drill bit (.031 ") for...

  • Hi Bob,

    I think we all want to know what make of lathe that you got??? I have also been thinking about getting a small mini lathe, but, don't want to get so hooked turning that I forget about my scroll saw.

    Maybe we could design projects that are half...

    replied to My Jewelry box project
    Hi Trout,

    That box looks great and I have made many a mistake (even thou I wasn't distracted by anyone). If you haven't trimmed the nails at this point you can still knock the handle off, flip the lid around, re-glue handle, and drill two new holes. This project really doesn't require...
