    Woodworker Journal Weekly Update Tip

    I have used the red line patterns. Much easier to follow than the black line. Many of my pattern lines are made in dark gray shade which is also easy to follow. I do not do any tracing. Patterns are computer generated or scanned into computer. I change the line color before printing the pattern. And, I still use the black line patterns when I can't change or do not want to take the time to change the line color. Larry

    Sakura Sks 21' Scroll Saw

    Artie, rig you up an aquarium pump for a dust blower. I got a used one several years ago for 1 or 2 dollars. Worked much better than the original. Gives a constant stream of air. Larry

    Sakura Sks 21' Scroll Saw

    I have never seen a Sukura or a PS wood scroll saw except in pictures. Did read a little about both a few minutes ago. Both show to be 5 speed and both appear (to me at least) that they are belt driven. So, to change the speed, you need to change the belt position on the pulley's. Parts to appear to be available through PS wood. Would definitely recommend giving a used saw a test drive before the buy. Larry

    Delta Scroll Saw Repair

    Tom, I replaced the bellows on my old craftsman with an aqurium pump I found at thrift store. Plugged in in so it came on when the saw came on and attached the plastic hose to the air line on the pump. Worked better than the saw bellows. The pump give a constant stream of air while the saw bellows pressure is regulated with the speed of the saw arm. When the bellows on my delta goes out, I will put the pump on it if I don't get it on before then. Cost of replacement was $2.00. Larry

    Status of Excalibur Scroll Saw

    One of the scrolling forums recently posted that the EX 21 is available for order through Home Depot. I just looked it up through my local HD and for $899.00 I could have one here around Jan 11. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Excalibur-120-Volt-21-in-Tilting-Head-Scroll-Saw-with-Stand-and-Foot-Switch-EX-21K/205414436?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-AllProducts|&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI08SanO2P2AIV1o2zCh2Dtgz-EAQYAiABEgIdG_D_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CM-Mn6Ptj9gCFVGtTwod5moDig Larry

    Spraying shellac?

    You're welcome Gene. I left out part of getting to the shellac info. Once you get to title Shellac, you need to scroll down and click on one of the sub topics. Maybe this one will take you to applying shellac for brushing information. http://www.askhlm.com/Articles/ArticleViewPage/tabid/75/ArticleId/15/Applying-Shellac.aspx Larry

    Spraying shellac?

    I use the spray can Bullseye shellac on most of my scrolling projects. Also do some dipping with 50/50 mix shellac / DNA. Have tried brushing and wiping without good results but if I would do this more I would probably get the hang of it. Spray can is the easy way out for me. I do know through all of the applications use/have attempted, that too heavy of coat will cause cracking. Spraying second coat or more will leave a rough texture. I take a piece of brown paper bag and rub it over the coats and this takes away the rough bumps. Works just like sandpaper but it does not leave the white sanding power as sandpaper does. All that to say this: Steve Mickley has been my go to for shellac information. Here is a link to his articles – just scroll down on left side till you get to shellac, click and read. http://www.askhlm.com/Articles/tabid/64/ArticleCategory/9/smid/418/Default.aspx Larry

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
