    Scroll saw addiction

    The quote above is from another thread but I felt it needed a new thread to address the problem of scroll saw addiction ! Hey Brian. I know the feeling. I also visited a counsellor because of my scroll saw addiction and here's what he said. "My advice with this or any other full blown...

    Home made scroll saw with some nice features.

    Hi all. A friend sent me this link and I must say, I am surprised at the quality of what is a basic build. I was particularly impressed with the lower arm bearing guides and the rear tension clamp idea which I've not seen before. It just goes to show that with a little ingenuity, anything is...

    Question for you all.

    When I scroll I automatically start cutting clockwise around whatever it is I'm cutting. When watching videos I notice that some cut anti-clockwise. My question is this : Do you cut clockwise or anti-clockwise but most importanly for this question, are you left or right handed ? This is purely...

    Just a box....with a difference.

    I made this box a few years ago for my daughter-in-law who works in the perfume industry. She has a huge collection of perfumes and I was asked by my son if I could make a box to house her prized ones. I knew she collected perfumes (of course !) and also that she loves tigers. I really didn't...

    For stevebuk... Hegner/Axminster

    Hi Steve. I've quoted from a recent post of yours as I didn't want to detract from that thread. Did you mean you used the Hegner knob when you owned an Axminster or Hegner ? The reason I ask is I know you like Delta's but have not heard you mention owning an Axminster. I have been following...

    Very impressive home made scroll saw.

    Can't help but be impressed by the effort this guy has put into making this saw. It is based on the 'Eclipse' constant tension saw but oh what a task he took on trying to build one ! So much design and cutting involved but he got a result. http://woodgears.ca/reader/scrollsaw/ If you don't...

    Huge, but fascinating Scroll Saw !

    I came across this video and thought it interesting enough to share with you guys. Great concept but maybe a bit too big for most here if space is at a premium ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqH51cqntgk

    Bad blades info/tip

    As an experienced scroller of many years I, like others here, have often received blades that were not up to par or in other words just plain blunt ! This has become no surprise for me and the first thing I do is change supplier if I get a bad batch. Before I go any further, I suggest you read...

    Sticky/FAQ's request....what do you think ?

    I belong to a few forums and one omission here is that there are no 'Sticky' or 'FAQ's' posts/areas ! How often do we hear the same questions asked over and over again and those questions are generally from those new to this great hobby. Questions like : What is the best scroll saw ? I have a...

    My experience...Blade alignment front to back.

    Adjusting the blade setting from left to right for accuracy is imperative on all scroll saws. However, adjustment from front to back is down to the individual saw in question and is only important if you cut thicker materials or if your saw is drastically out of allignment. Why ? All saws have...
