Filling an order for parts for someone else. 100 sheep down, 300 goats and 50 innkeepers to go (for starters).

The Dewalt is a terrific scroll saw. I burned out my first scroll saw by using it so much and then got the Dewalt. It can cut all day and continue to run flawlessly, as you have noticed.

Wow that’s a bunch of critters … now, lets see here at $5.95 each ummmm about another two orders like this and the new saw will be paid for … just kidding of course …
It’s nice to have a nice order like that … I hope there is profit in it for you. I assume that you cut these from pine?
Your patience and tenacity is to be admired.

@Dusty: The waste wood has just enough on it to cut the lambs, so it won’t be wasted at all.
