    replied to No copyright
    Your scrollsaw belongs to you, whether you register it or not. So do your photographs and original artwork.

    The point of copyright registration is to provide a simple way to prove that a work is yours if you have to go to court.

    If you intend to sell a piece of work you...

    replied to I wont some new Blades,
    Evie - if you raised the upper arm the same as the table, you'd be sawing on the same part of the blade again. I think you'd have to accept there'd be a point where there's just no room left!

    But a good design would go *down* as well so you would be doubling what you get by raising....

    replied to I wont some new Blades,
    So here's an idea. Since the blade-makers are unlikely to make blades that last longer, how about the saw-makers designing a saw in which the table not only tilts, but can be raised and lowered so as to utilise whatever part of the blade you want?

    For a moment I thought - Carter's done a strip cut - am I still asleep and dreaming?

    Great idea and certainly a tough one to put together I would say.

    I use a 3M spray (the permanent one) and I've had problems that I attribute to spraying unevenly. But I also find the more puzzles I do, the better I'm getting at spraying the picture evenly and with the right amount.

    I've nevetheless had far fewer problems with spraying than with brush-on...

    I use an artist's spray lacquer when I have printed the picture myself but not when the puzzle picture is already well fixed, as with most glossy calendars.

    If the edges are taking punishment there are a few things that I find help.

    Firstly, keeping fingernails trimmed...

  • Shouldn't be breaking that frequently!

    First off, on the tension - all this stuff about "C above Middle C" does not take into account the great variety of blade thicknesses. I much prefer the advice that the blade should have about 1/8" play on each side when you push it...

    In engineering terms, the advantage of a belt drive is that if the mechanisms become jammed for some reason, the belt will slip or come off rather than put undue stress on the bearings, gears or motor.

    For my money the best design would be fully variable speed with a belt drive from the...

  • Thread necromancy is wonderful.

    Nevertheless one thing hasn't changed in the past two years - the only saws available in the UK with 18" or better throats are by Axminster, Hegner and Diamond.

    It's a shame that Dewalt won't supply saws to the UK although they supply other...

    replied to Saw preference poll
    I would love to be able to try an Excalibur EX30 with that long, long throat, because it would greatly increase the size of jigsaw puzzle I could cut with it. I am surprised there are not more saws with longer throats.

    As it is, I'm still very happy with the peculiarly Hegneresque Axminster...

    Also with saws using removable clamps, like Hegner saws, you can insert blade and clamps together instead of having to clamp at the saw arm....

    replied to Scroll saw upgrading.
    Well I built my first saw out of Meccano (Erector) parts and enjoyed fooling around with it so much I knew I'd be happy with something a bit better than the entry-level saws. An economical way to try out a hobby, I suppose - and discover what virtues you want to be looking for in a saw.
