Here are some fret work projects. I have an RBI 26” scroll saw. I’v had 8 different scroll saw’s and this one is the best performing scroll saw I’v had. It is a little pricey but it will be the last scroll saw I’ll buy.

-- Have a great day.

Beautiful work> I’d like to do a lot more of that , too.

This is the scroll saw I got from my Dad’s shop – I have a real hard time stopping and setting up in the next cut out area ~ any hints? The let off seems too far back and then I have to adjust all over?

Hi Grosa.

Nice work, and that saw makes my poor 16” Craftsman look like a toy!

Nice work. I’ve done a lot of those same patterns. I have a huge stockpile of SS patterns that if I live to be 100 I still won’t get them all cut.

The last SS you will ever buy???? If you feel that way then my recommendation is that you never try scrolling on an Eclipse.

Terry, That look’s very interesting. I might have to try one. It does look very appealing to me. When I started learning scroll work I learned on a delta 15” scroll saw and I still have it.

-- Have a great day.

C:\Users\Russ\Pictures\2011-12-11\20111211_121.JPG I hope I have been able to get the picture of my scroll saw fret work craft show table display loaded correctly. If you can get it to come up you should get some idea of what I am doing. I would like your input on my craft show table display.
The table you see on the left side of my table belongs to my mentally handicapped daughter who makes scarfs etc. to dress stuffed bears as he craft show work. I usaully get a 8 foot tabe and only put one (1) sample or project out on the table, I do have more. But, the cost of table rent I try to show the customer what I have to offer. I stand behind the table and greet each person the best I can and answer questions when asked about the type of wood etc.. I turn pens and turn wooden bowls which creates a lot of questions.

I am sorry that my picture does not come up in my last posting. I signed up for photbucket and uploaded the craft show display there.
Please tell me how to post pictures on the forum. Thank You

I don’t do craft shows. You can download pictures from your computer when you post a project. Your project don’t come up.
