Default Another new scroller!

Howdy from northwest Kansas! I have been watching the forum board for awhile now, I just haven't introduced myself. I am a professional truckdriver, have a wife, three dogs, and alot of learning to do. I recently purchased a few saws from a widow woman that were her husbands' here locally, and the only saw she didn't throw in was the scroll saw he had. Well, come Christmas time, her & my wife decided I needed that scroll saw. It's an older Craftsman 16", using pinned blades. I have had quite a time finding blades for it, but, I got to nosing around a bit & found a conversion kit for it thru Craftsman that will allow the saw to use plain or pinned end blades. Now I'm ready to try my first project. I think. All I have to do is decide what to try. Any suggestions? farmer.

Howdy, Farmer, and welcome to the group. First try should be somewhat simple but something of interest to you. If you hunt, there are plenty of patterns relating to that. Patriotic? Tons of patterns. Go to woodenteddybear.com and pick something out. There are other sources for patterns as well.

Welcome aboard farmer.

You might also try "absolutely free scrollsaw patterns". It is a forum group on MSN that has exactly what the title suggests. They have patterns for the taking from complex to simple. Let us know what you find.

Hi Farmer,
Welcome! Kansas, isn't that where Timmy & Lassie are from? No wait its Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz. Remember "Nobody gets to see the wizard!"
I would find some good 1" scraps either pine, plywood, mdf, whatever you can find. Old wood pallets or scraps from a cabinet shop etc. & then do a search for free wood puzzles & there is a site that has all sorts of easy to scroll childrens puzzles. You can paint these with acrylic paints & put on a glossy finish & it doesn't matter what material you used to make them. Better yet, make your wife paint them (to sort of get even for the Craftsman saw.)

Welcome Farmer! You have a world of scrollers here and plenty of advice and educational information! Get yourself an assortmant of blades and see what works best for you and your machine. PM me and I'll tell you where for a start! I don't know if I was a Profession Trucker according to a few four wheeler drivers over the "Fruited Plains", but after 32 years and over 2 million miles not running over anyone, I retired a coupe of year's back and gave up chasing a white line in favor of being home and chasing a pencil line full-time!

HAVE FUN,
Rick

Still got all my fingers!

Isn't Dorothy actually from your state?

Foot note: Judy Garland Born, Grand Rapids, Minnesota

I know...I know... Just having fun with you!

I'm not Randy, but yes, Dorothy was born in or near Grand Rapids, MN. Also, Laura Ingalls Wilder was raised in MN, somewhere near Walnut Grove. We Minnesotans are proud of our state, especially the cold.

Welcome to the fun loving group, Farmer.
