Scroll Saw Special Interest Group (SS SIG) - Aug 21st, 2014

SS SIG - Aug 21st at Rick's Shop - Black Hawk - 7 pm

Needs updating for Aug 21st mtg:  A group of hearty scrollers joined Rick for a Scroll Saw SIG meeting on Thursday evening, despite a deluge of rain and small hail in the minutes before the meeting.  Attending the event were Ed Pike, Harley Schmadeke, Larry Borg, Bel Felix, Bob Buchanan, and Rick Weisbeck.

After a shop tour for new member Ed Pike, a discussion related to scroll sawing followed.  Topics discussed included tips on getting the most out of your scrollsaw, blade selection, maintenance tips for keeping your saw in top order, tip on using a footswitch to turn the saw on and off to avoid costly replacement of the saw's switch, patterns for 3 dimensional giraffes, relief cutting techniques with a pattern to make a visual aid to learn how to do relief cutting  on a scrollsaw, and show and tell.
