Smile Complete Newbie

Hello: I'm a complete newbie to scrollsawing. Became Disabled and need something to keep me a little busy . So i will say I'm not a rich person that can afford those nicer saws . I just purchased a Hitachi CW 40 at my local Lowes Store for $139.00 plus tax. Got it put together and started it up ,it seems to run smoothly and is very quite . Theres lots I got to learn about scroll sawing is reason I have joined this site . I googled Hitachi and saw this and so I have joined and I know I will read and learn so much from all the membership here. Thank you for letting me join .SLM

Default welcome to fellow newbie

welcome to a fellow handicapped newbie.......like others have said,,,ask lots of questions,everybody likes to help.........as for me,my advice is take it slow,try small projects first ,get to know your machine....i don't have much money either but try to invest in the little extras.......sand paper,mini files for tight areas,extra blades and a good dremel with lots of bits......(especially the drumsander attachment and lots of sanding barrels in multiple sizes) it cuts down on all the hand sanding......

hiya slm, it's nice to meet and have ya here. just do as said in previous posts....ask questions, bout anything. also, i often go to the topic i have questions about, go to the last page, and read backwards, well, you know what i mean? the people here are awesome and they will help you in any way possible. i, too, have been deemed disabled...sigh. so at least we already have two things in common, first bein the love of learnin to scroll or 'make dust' as some call it. have fun, and be patient. i'm only on my actual 5th day of scrollin, but have been workin at it for some time, if that makes any sense. ok, i'm hushin now, i tend to ramble often too.

Welcome am sure you will enjoy scrolling. As KK says take it slow start out with some easy projects and you will be surprised at how fast you catch on. Ask all the questions you want, there is no such thing as a "dumb" question so don't worry. Remember to post pictures of your work. saw dust

sounds like my first project ,took me 1 1/2 hours to scroll and 9 days to sand until i discovered DREMEL and sanding drum attachment......the dremel makes it alot easier to do projects because of my extreme arthritis.

Welcome aboard. Looking forward to some pics when you have some projects done. BTW remember to sign and date your projects. You will be amazed when you look back the progress you can see.

Also remember we scrollers are our own toughest critics. Don't be too hard on your self, the people who get your gifts never saw the pattern only the end result.
