  1. Looks good. I have cut this a few times as gifts and always loved this pattern.
  2. Running an EX-21 I don't have to worry about lube. Before that on my older saws I used WD-40 and did the clean and lube and clean again. Worked for me. With the Excalibur it has sealed bearings. Hope this answers your questions.
  3. Fred I usually run into the corner, then back up enough to turn my blade. Back into the previous cut and continue. I know there are quite a few ways to do this, but this is my "prefered" way. Blade size depends on the wood I am cutting. The softer the wood the larger blades I use. Ex. Pine #5UR hard woods. #3UR. I have been known to go to a #1UR to accomplish the task at hand. Different angles, different woods = different blades and approaches. There is more then one way to skin a cat
  4. Nice work, love the pattern.
  5. Nice work as always Fred. I'll agree with spalted maple. The last photo Mesquite ?
  6. Really cute family. Are these from Paul Meisel ? I have done the train, car and a few others. Looks good, like the colors too .
  7. That's really neat.
  8. Kevin The book I was referring to is: Scroll Saw Workbook by John Nelson, Fox Chapel Publishing, ISBN: 978-1-56523-207-5 Hope this helps.
  9. Kevin First off welcome to the wonderful world of scrolling. There is a YouTube channel, Qwinette Woodworkers with a great video or 2 of scrolling. As for blogs and stuff. Look up Steve Good, he runs a blog and offers free patterns from very easy to somewhat difdicult. I have been scrolling fir quite a few years. Not an expert but normally do very challenging patterns and design a lot of my own. There is some information to get you started on. Next is some advice for a beginner. First of all have fun. You are going to make tons of mistakes learning. We all did and still do. I have a box of designer firewood in my shop. Second be patient, don't be in a hurry you'll get so frustrated and that's not good. As for books. When I get home I can look some up for you. Some are very basic and I don't want to give you the wrong title to start on. Thanks Wayne

    Nice work Harry. Clean and smooth. As for the nail board I have been using them for a while. Never thought about staples though and like that idea a lot. Might have to try them. Thanks for the tip.
  11. JOhn What a great family outing. I can feel the excitment in the photos and almost hear the thunder. I love the great outdoors and animals and there ws no shortage of either. Thanks for sharing a great set of memories.
  12. Looks like a fun project. Thanks for sharing.
  13. Nice page JOhn. Great looking fmily photo too.
  14. I have had great sucess with Timber Wolf blades. Olsen also puts out some nice blades. The narrower the blade the tighter the curve you can cut. I keep blades from 1/8" up to 3/4" depending on what I am cutting. Also the number of teth has a lot to do with the smoothness of the cut. Like many other operations in the shop, speed and feed have a lot to do with the outcome and quality of cut.
  15. Harry I start mine close to place like a sharp corner, Much less noticable and easier to match up. They can be inside corners or outside ones. I have alos found the points in the design serve well. I'll try and work on some drawings to better explain this for you. As you develop more expierance you will learn all the neat little tricks. Give me a few days and I'll see what I can come up with for you.

    Have to love a good lokking and functional pattern. Thnks for sharing lew.
  17. Outstanding work Ron. They really great.
  18. Nice find and a great price. Maybe check ebay for an iron.
  19. Great job on the bench Fred. Looks like it will be around for a very long time.
  20. John I use my dust collector for the bigger stuff. Mostly my table saw. Other then that I use a shop vac. Yeap pain in the keester. Till I get a "new" shop I have to make due. There are systems out there that pull a lot more cfm and an over hear air filteration system does wonders. Please keep us posted on your progress. I have read 6" is more efficient then 4" but the system I have is not big enough for that.
  21. I think Lew and John have hit this right. Tried teaching the Mrs. this and still have to go back and double check. As for going to a spraying system, trust me, there is a lot of clean up there too. We all learn as we go. And there are people here to help you learn bu the mistakes we have all made. Welcome to the woodworking side life.
  22. Glad to see you getting some use with the saw. Keep patient and have fun. The aquarium pumps are nice and do a good job. Depending on the wood you aer going to use, wear a dust mask, some have reactions with the human body. Of course this would also apply to the turning you do Ernie. Be safe and have fun
  23. A picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, not words, just prayers.
  24. Ernie Just starting out is very exciting. But I would start with just those 2 sizes for now. I'm curious as the why you want the #55 drill bits ? If you are going to use the #9's to cut your blanks why you need that biit ? SO to give you a definative answer, just the number 5 and #9 blades. Great place to start while you get the hang of things again. At least in the beginning, keep it simple and you will grow as you go. I'll look and see if I still have the practice pattern. If I do I will post it and that will give you a something to look at and when you get things together to play with .
