My wife has picked up the scroll saw in the last year. She expressed an interest in scrolling so I bought an entry level Shop Fox 16” scroll saw for her. She’s made plenty of things including the pumpkin door hanger for our front door shown in the picture below. She saw a similar thing at a store, took a picture of it, and made one of her own at home. She has had 7 or 8 orders from people wanting her to make one for them in the last month. I recorded the process of one of them. I think she did great. #womeninwoodworking
She’s actually been doing quite a bit on the scroll saw. She’s getting better with every project and even making some money doing it. I told her if it keeps up, we can think about selling the one we have and upgrading to an Excalibur next year when we get our tax returns. She’s currently using pinned blades. The scroll saw comes with an attachment for pinless blades, but it is such a pain to do any fretwork with them because the attachment falls off when you loosen the set screws that hold the blade in when moving to the next hole in the work-piece. You have to use an allen wrench to do this as well. I bought some Flying Dutchman reverse tooth blades when we got it, but it’s a shame we’re not even using them. The table is super small, too, and a lot of the stuff my wife has been making is big. The big table on the Excalibur would be awesome.
