Hello,
Just joined this forum. All the bragging pieces I have seen are just beautiful!!! Just getting started and am enjoying it immensely. I have a couple of old 2 man buck saws and was thinking about having them painted with a scene. But since I got my new scrollsaw for Christmas I was wondering if anyone knows where I might locate a pattern and do something with it myself (after I have a LOT more practice). Thanks

Welcome aboard. Did I read it correctly? You are considering scrollsawing some type of design in your antique buck saws? The blade of the bucksaw? That will be extremely hard to do, that old hardened steel is tough stuff. you will need some specialty blades for sure, and consider the sawdust (metal filings), and how they can effect the moving parts on your scrollsaw. I would suggest leaving the bucksaws natural, or painting them, and scroll some good old fashioned wood instead! Dale (if I misinterpreted your post, I apologize)

Not that way lucky788scroller. I was thinking of using some type of wood and then using the metal as a background to attach it to. Some sort of landscape, flower, tree something pattern. And Steviegwood - read some posts before about you all being nosy!!!haha My name is Pat. Been reading a lot of the posts and everyone is so informative and helpful and playful. Lots of good reading
