Topic tags/keywords: question

I know that Carole will e-mail me but I am impatient and hoping someone has already had this problem. I want to make some of Carole Rothman’s Scroll saw bowls and did the glue up on the first one was ready to cut it and being I don’t scroll all the time did not realize that my Delta Q-3 scroll saw only tilts to the right, and Carole’s instructions say to tilt the table 28 degrees to the LEFT. ANy suggestions or should I selll the Q-3 and get a new scroll saw? I hope someone has an idea Thank you

Tilt the saw to the right, but cut in the opposite direction from Carole. I believe that she cuts counter-clockwise (Don’t have the book in front of me right now). If I am correct, that cut clockwise. Just cut in the opposite direction from Carole’s instructions and it will all work out.
