Not a ton to write about this evening, it has been quite a long week at work and I will show why later on in the week. Since I also worked on Saturday I only got a little bit of shop time last night and today. Having received my blade holders and a manual (many kudos to Dremel customer service) for my scroll saw this week, I decided I should take some time to sit down and do some more practice. First though I had to come up with a way attach the saw to my workbench.
Here is what I came up with, the saw has been mounted to a piece of scrap plywood (those dang cabinets are still coming in handy) then I drilled a hole through the back of my work bench for one of my large face clamps. The front is even with the front of my bench and held down by one C-clamp. It seems to do the job nicely. I have been using the saw for a few hours and nothing seems to move.
I decided to give myself some practice by making letters for a few signs, hope to have them on display later this week. The fun part is my daughter is helping with one for her bedroom door, looking forward to her time in the shop with me.
That’s about it for this evening, hope everyone had a good weekend. Have fun this week.
