Another fine episode Mr. Stache!!!

It’s great to have you back in action and passing on the knowledge.
The tip about location of blade breaks will, I’m sure, be very valuable to me, as I progress in my new scroll saw adventure. Thanks for the heads up!!!

Just a thought on production schedules though….
Just push Stumpy out of the shop/studio, so you can “film” when YOU want to!!! ;^)

Excellent as usual, very informative content. Do not scroll saw much but the information was very useful and very well done.
