Finally

I finally have a scroll saw again. My wife bought it for me, a PerforMax from Menards.
Yes, I know, it is a cheap, and slightly underpowered saw. But, it is a scroll saw. I haven't had one since 2002 and I lately have been bitten by the scrolling bug again, and now I can do something about it.

We recently moved, and somewhere, somewhere, I have a couple large boxes full of pattens, but can't find them right now, so I surfed the net last night and found some guys site with quite a few scroll saw patterns for free. So I printed one off, altered it a little, and spent the morning in my cold garage, making saw powder.

I have missed this.

I have all the peices cut, now they just need a light sanding, assembly and a finish applied, once I get that done, I will post pics.

I will say, I started out and could easily see, I was out of practice, but by number 3 of 9 pieces, I was right back at it, tho a bit slower than I use to be, also seems like the lines on patterns have gotten a bit blury over the past 11 or 12 years

anyway, just wanted to type for a minute cause I am excited to once again, be scrolling.

now to save up for theat 20 inch DeWalt scroll saw....

Don't you hate that, inferior lines. You'd think with the quality of pens and inks these days that everyone would make good clear lines

Fortunately my pens seem to be fine, my wife however must be getting hers from somewhere else as she says her lines a blurry too, go figure, she should have used my pens.

Glad to hear you back on the scroll, hope to see some pics soon, use good film hate to have blurry pics lol.

I had just gotten into scrolling when I had my accident and really haven't been back out to the shop since it happened. I'll be watching for the photos of your work.

I know the feeling about those fuzzy lines. Seems like almost everything these days is getting fuzzy...

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

I'm glad you're back into scrolling and please post a few pictures soon. Are you sure your eyes are getting weaker by the decades because if you were out in your unheated shop today, it could have been the cold shrinking the ink of the lines. I'm aware of the weather you folks had today but thank God you're not having to deal with what DaveTTC is dealing with. And to think they were drowning at this time last year down under.

Its' never hot or cold in New Hampshire... its' always seasonal.

Glad to hear you're back at it. I know, from personal experience, how relaxing working at a scroll saw can be. Enjoy. Looking forward to your posts.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Enjoy that new saw. Scrolling is fun, safe, and one of the quieter woodworking tools.
