Default Scrolling

Just stumbled across this part of the forum and I thrilled to see it. Out of the many forums I visit, none of them have a scrolling section. I am just now growing my interest in this area and trying to find as much information as I can get. I have had my Delta 16" saw for a year now and need to learn to use it.

Hi Whitewoft710

I just wanted to say thanks again for the tip ,number #5 , about lifting the tail end of the scroll saw up, I put a 4 x 6 under the the tail end and glued and screwed the saw down, it worked great, I got some scraps and made some cuts, and I could see everything it was cutting unlike before the lift and my back didn't tell me to stop.

Now I just need to rework the floor switch a bit and the light and the chair and I'm set to start using the saw again.
I'm amaze that small of tip would help so much but it did.

Amaze : (to overwhelm with surprise or sudden wonder; astonish greatly)

Thanks again
Bj

Darryn,

Thanks for your offer to address questions on this forum. I may have a few as I get further into this and it is nice to know that I have someone kind enough to help. I visited your website and want to commend you on a job well done. I am going to dig around further in there looking for helpful info. I need to settle on an initial small project for practice and getting my feet wet.

Hi Darryn

I have one of the cheap CraftsMan saws it works ok but it's a pain to take the blade out and then put it back in and lock it down.
It's one that has a allen key and lock pin setup.
Do you know if the make a quick change setup for the CrfatsMan or is there new type of clamp that I can buy and put on it. ?, I can make one from sq.1 but that's more work than I want to do right now

Bj

heres another tip to amaze your friends get some 1/8 th wood 3 pieces now get colored paper and put the paper between the wood ..
Now when you scroll 3 pieces of wood you will have a pile of the same cuttings in paper
Everyone will wonder how you cut such an awesome pattern in paper .
without it tearing
Remember for every 10 sheets of paper have a piece of wood your stack should be
wood then 10 sheets paper then wood then 10 more paper then wood again then tape the whole she-bang with packing tape
then spray your pattern with elmers spray glue then apply
drill all pilot holes and cut
PS
im glad the raised saw tip helped its amazing how little an adjustment can make such a big difference

lol i see we posted 2 minutes apart at first i wondered how did i miss that post till i looked at the time stamp

which model is your saw and i will see if i can find you a quick change adapter to fit yours there is a few out there that will change it over to the new method of toolless changing which is a dream compared to fiddling around with allen wrenchs and handles etc.
