That is a great shot. Somehow seems even more incredible.

Picking up on yocalif's idea, you might suggest a video tutorial series to the Excalibur folks for their web site. I suspect one thing that stops people from stepping up to a higher end machine is that they simply don't know how to take advantage of it. You have been so successful here, even making converts, seems to me that people coming to their web site would be an even "hotter" lead - not to mention the folks hitting Google for information on getting to be a better scroller. This could help pull them into the Excalibur web site (which, ahem, could use a refresh...) and lead to greater sales. As I'm thinking about it, as prolific and good at documenting as you are a blog for them would put their web traffic through the roof and bring in some extra income (and maybe shop time) for you.

Nice one Ken, that's one "bee-yew-tea-full" piece of
scrolling for sure.

Amazing as always!! Ive always wanted to try scrolling but the reality is, I dont think I could ever set at a saw for 16 hours!! You have a special gift!!


I wonder how many of the newer members that posted have seen the clock you built?

RRBrown, knottscott and many others were banned, they didn't just leave. They were banned for standing up to the new owners that are destroying this site. Come join us all at woodworking chat, the best new woodworking site on the net!!

No Gary, they had a brand new machine sitting there waiting for me to play with. I adjusted it the way that I like and carried on from there. Definitely a good weekend for sure.

You can't expect us to believe you went there for two days and just came home with a little scroll work thingy.........

Was the new Excalibur an upgrade from yours?
Any new features?

....or did you show them your upgrades?

Well done, Ken

Truth be told, I never got up from the saw the entire time that I was there. I didn't look at one tool or one booth other than the tool that I was working on. I was just so into talking to people and demonstrating the saw, that I just didn't have the time. It's probably a good thing because it could have cost me a small fortune. The tool reps kept coaxing me to take a break and go look around but I was really enjoying my time at the saw and buying a new tool just didn't seem that important to me at the time. As far as the saw that I worked on, it was the twin of mine. There's not much to upgrade there. It's a sweet unit. I think that the upgrade to the saw was sitting at the controls. (that's terrible, I shouldn't toot my own horn like that)

Hehe, nice! I don't disagree. If only they could sell you as an upgrade accessory.

WOW, that's about all I can say. Who ever says scrolling isn't a skill is missing something upstairs because what you do is beyond skill!!!

Thanks for your help

Simply superb. This may be a hobby for you, but only because you are not making a living doing this. You are a master at scrolling.
