Good day -
-- I just stumbled upon a video (then more) of yours on YouTube for
scroll saw use with Corel. I like the comments regarding using Corel -
but - I'd like you to also comment that a person interested in using

an older version of CorelDRAW Suite (the full suite) for as little as
$15 on eBay. I routinely recommend CorelDRAW and believe that version
9 is about the single best investment that anyone can make if they
want to learn to use a vector program. Version 9 will make nearly
everything that X3 or X4 will do - just a LOT less expensive (for the

them reach their former glory. At one time, into the 90s, Corel had
as much as 86% of the graphics market worldwide - Illustrator,
Freehand, etc do not come close in either ease of learning or power -
especially in the cost department. So the price is not 'expensive'
but in reality is cheeeap - even for hobbyists. And then you can
lessen the cost by getting an older version. X3 is the first that had
a BIG jump in actual utility over v9. And you can get X3 for under
$100 - all legal and unrestricted - not a student version.
-- I like the videos - nice and smooth w good audio. I need metal and
scroll saw help. :-)
