Default So new I dont have a saw!

Not for two days that is. Its coming! DW788BS. Looking forward to it and obtaining as much experience from this site as I can. I havent seen a scroll saw in action since high school. Umm 30 yrs? The posts I have read on here got me excited to give it a whirl so here I go.

I will be looking for some favorite go-to books. Suggestions?
Take care!
Jack

Jack, if you need a brush-up on your skills, John Nelson's book is really good. I used it to teach myself how to scroll, and it provided a nice overview of the most common types of projects. I was thrilled when I cut my first simple project that actually looked nice!

And be sure to get some good blades. A lot of folks here, me included, buy Flying Dutchman blades from Mike. You'll develop your own preferences, but that's one solid place to start.

Good luck, and enjoy your new saw.

With that saw, start by top feeding. You will never regret it.
