    Anyone from Cary (or Raleigh) going to the Mid Winter Blues shindig?

    Looks like the fellow is coming up on 2/3, so probably not needed. Thanks for your offer. HOWEVER, that being said, he is supposed to be monitoring this thread and can chime in if I'm mistaken.

    Anyone from Cary (or Raleigh) going to the Mid Winter Blues shindig?

    Hey Scott! Doing well. Not doing much woodworking as photography has kind of taken that time slot. However, I am looking to get back into it a bit by using the photography as a reason to learn how to make frames! How about you? I am going to have to spend some time poking around to see who...

    FREE Wood Magazines #1-243 and a few more!

    There is another person trying to work out a way to get them. HOWEVER, he lives near Charlotte. Should he not be able to come up with a way to get them, would you be interested in picking them up? I live in Cary between Crossroads and the Town Center. I see your location is Raleigh, but I...

    Anyone from Cary (or Raleigh) going to the Mid Winter Blues shindig?

    A member is interested in the Wood magazines I am giving away. I will not be going but it appears he is. I have two boxes about 12" high, 16" long and 10" wide holding the magazines. If someone is going, I will confirm with Steve (from Huntsville) that he is and perhaps the two of you could...

    vendor bashing

    Prior to the popularity and anonymity of the internet people would contact the vendor first and try to work things out. It seems now a days that first step is oftentimes omitted. Now I have seen here accounts of trying to contact the vendor and the end result. The facts should speak for...

    The book Scroll Saw Workbook is really good. (HERE on AMAZON). Contains the type of information it sounds as if you are looking for. Plus it covers several techniques and has exercises you can copy and use to hone your skills. You can find copies for less than $10 (plus shipping) on...

    Porter Cable Scroll Saw

    Still might want to consider the HF 16 inch scroll saw. Online, today 12/10, it is $64.99. Should you find one of those 20% off one item coupons, I think it could be applied to drop it even further. While it takes the pin type blades, it also has the plain end adapters with it. You could get...

    Entry level scroll saw?

    For what is worth, I took the same approach. What I found is the cheap scrollsaw was such a pain to use, it made scrolling unpleasant and I almost quit it then and there. However, sometimes the budget overrides the desire. That being said - I would avoid any saw that used pinned blades. They...
