To make getting patterns off easier I use Duck brand clear shelf paper. It is cheap to buy, last a long time, easy to use, and you can get it at Walmart as well as other places. To get started I lay down the shelf paper which has a sticky back on the wood. I then spray on my adhesive and install the pattern. The shelf paper doesn't leave any residue on your wood. It also lubes your blade so it doesn't get hot. Also, the shelf paper and pattern come off easier. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Duck-Peel-Stick-12-In-x-36-Ft-Adhesive-Laminate-Shelf-Liner-Clear/16224481
Canon MG 2522 cheapest we could find.. Now for the comments on its performance. This printer is on sale at Walmart for 19.00. This is the picture that is on my computer and this is what I printed out to use as a pattern to glue on to some wood. Its 34? long and clear enough to cut out with scroll saw. Cutting to the lines, which the printer provides for a person to cut off so the pages will line up for the clear tape. 8 pages for this pattern and the only ditty is holding the paper straight while taping. Can't be a nervous norvis while preforming this task. I have two different pictures of the clown first one I just printed out without changing size where the other I enlarged to 18" and it did make the lines a little jerky but the scroll saw blade should have no trouble going straight down the middle, so these are acceptable..this happened on the last two printers I've used when making a very large pattern. So having Rapid Resizer print anything my computer stores is okay. Being cheaper it is slower at the number pages a minute it will make but hey I'm not running a race with anyone. The ink for this canon was quite a bit cheap than the HP 4640 that wore out. When printing for a pattern I like to do it in black and white as the lines are better to follow when sawing out and I get to save on the color ink which is cheaper but if its a colored picture it won't redo in black for there are no lines just garble de gunk. The bad thing about this cheap of a model printer when wanting a great picture of something in color it just doesn't do a good job. First picture I took years ago of my box of hearts. Then a picture of the same shot with what the new printer coughed out standing besides the computer screen with the stored picture. Actually the very first picture was a different shot than the second one. So for my needing patterns from what pictures I store from the internet I think the printer is perfect and for a total of 21 bucks gets a 2 years replacement warranty.... I always use a backer board behind the hardwood I use to make the picture out of...After I cut the outside away from the rest of the wood I then remove the backer board and continue sawing out the pieces. This way I have something to glue all the pieces thats been carved and colored and sprayed back to the original body whether it be a clock a clown or what ever... Or like with this clown I save some wood around the pieces to be a frame then glue a piece of 1/8" to the back of the frame to glue the pieces on. Did I miss something? Yes I did. This canon 2522 does not have a slot for the photo card so I had to find my cord I use to plug in to the camera and the puter tower to transfer the pictures to the puter.
Hi, I apologize if this info should have been easy to find, I couldn’t find it. First I am not yet a woodworker, but trying to get there, have a shop almost ready to use, now I gotta learn WHAT to do. Got about 12 side jobs (I’m an electrician) I gotta do for family and friends, can’t find any time right now for the basement. The powers of the universe have decided to get involved. A very good friend of my wife has a son, very introverted. Parents are very (how do I put it, terrified he’ll get hurt, no matter what it is) protective. Kid is kinda not growing up, doing typical boy stuff (or at least what this 58 year old guy remembers as boy stuff). They came by the place today, and I mentioned to mom, that if her son would like to make something on the scroll saw, I would love to set it up. She talked to him about it, and the reply was “Please, Please, Please” So long story short, (I know, too late) I have a Shopsmith, mostly still unused. I have the scrollsaw attachment, and will figure out how to set it up and use it. The thought I’m having is to see if he would like to make a cursive example of his name (Everett), and maybe a MOM, and DAD for the respective Mothers, and Fathers Day, coming up. So where can I get a pattern, or stencil of cursive writing? I am assuming you match the pattern/stencil size to wood size? He also likes planes and I’m thinking that getting plane plans online should be pretty easy. I’m just thinking that starting with the names would be within his limits, and not so difficult as to turn him off, but the end result would be nice enough to feel good about making it. Any thoughts, ideas, suggestions welcome, please remember that experience wise, I’m only a half step ahead of Everett. LOL
Don't know how many of us make clocks (big and small). I'm always looking for unique plans that I haven't seen before. Stumbled upon this site and marveled at the uniqueness of the clocks. Boyer clocks If anyone has other sites with unique clock patterns would you share them? Thanks, guys, and keep the sawdust flying fred
I was digging around in our old website files last night and I was able to extrapolate about a hundred scrolling patterns that our members contributed back in the day, I'll have them up in our "Downloads" area this week, free for all to use. Here is one of them. This is really cool stuff!
Where's a good place to put your blade starting holes? I have been putting them away from the cut line but when I'm cutting and get back to the starting point I have a heck of a time meeting in the right place. Seems I always have to sand or file the area smooth.
For those who need new patterns, I have a collection of military patterns that I can scan and email to anyone that is interested. I also have thousands more that I can do the same. If you're interested email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
