Hi from Maine

21 posts in this topic

I'm a new scroller, using an old 16" Tradesman saw that I bought for $10 on Craigslist. I live in southern Maine. My hobbies include upgrading my house, my four kids and seven grandkids, woodworking, bass fishing, beer brewing and bicycle riding. I mostly retired a year ago.

So far I've made two things on my scroll saw, this is the most recent and was an anniversary gift for my wife this week. I enjoyed making it, though it did make me really want a new saw! I still need to file and sand a bit and then put a finish on it. d687a6c7-ab59-4bc1-a9df-eba9e67e97fd_zps It's not attached to the base yet so that I can more easily finish it.

I'm looking forward to a lot more scrolling.

Nice work, Ken.  You will find a lot of friendly people, sage advice, "been there too" trouble shooting and lots of sound support on the Village.

Impressive work! And welcome aboard. I agree with Marg above. The first thing I cut my wife hung on the fridge (because it looked like something I did in the first grade!)
