Default Tips and Tricks

I'm a pretty avid scroller and LOVE to learn neat tricks and tips to make scrolling more interesting. Does anyone have any to share?

Tip: If you put clear box tape over your pattern, it will melt slightly when you begin sawing, creating a lubricant and allowing your blade to pass through the wood like a hot knife through butter.

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.

The spouse has signed up for a one day workshop on beginning scrollsaw at Lee Valley. I'll keep an eye on this topic for some tips to pass on. Thanks Eric!

i use double sided masking tape to apply patterns to wood. works great just peel away and leaves no glue residue.

I use SMALL pieces of double sided tape between layers for stack cutting. Much cheaper and faster than taping or nailing layers together.
