Default Hi from the UK

Hi everyone, I have just joined your wonderful forum after hunting around for information on scroll sawing for beginners.
I have today purchased a scroll saw, its a JET JSS-16 Scroll saw. Haven't had the time to plug and play yet but will do once my guests have gone.
Regards
Ian

Welcome Ian, you could not have come to a better place to again advice and tips from some of the finest scrollers around who are only too willing to share their expertise. Beware, scrolling is very addictive but a in a nice kind of way. There are so many different things you can make using a scroll saw and it will not take long to get up to speed. Practice on simple projects first and you will be amazed how soon you will progress onto something more advanced. There are lots of free patterns in our pattern vault at the bottom of the forums page. Take at look around the site and the galleries to get a feel for what can be done on the scroll saw. When you make your first project post pictures of it so we can give any constructive comments that may be needed. Ask all the questions you want, they will always be answered. Nice to see another member from the UK here. Enjoy yourself.
Mick

Ian,
you have got a spectacular saw for a first starter.

You should be able to make most patterns available for free download.

Just remember, buy the best blades (Olsen) and try to never EVER press sideways... always keep the blade vertical with no sideways pressure.

You can/will lose track of time when you're scrolling!

Best regards
Jack O'wheelie

Hi Ian, welcome to the forum. I'm Marg from Australia. There will come a time when you will not worry about the visitors or just want to push them out of the door to get to your saw. Believe me its addictive.
