8 X 10 Roaring Lion Scroll Saw Pattern.

This roaring lion pattern is 8" X 10". The image in this pattern was designed by vectorportal.com. They release it under Creative Commons License with attribution. I thought it would make a cool scroll saw pattern.

My email is running over with all the comments and suggestions about the Scrollsaw Workshop Stencil Printer program. The suggestions and bug reports are more helpful than you can imagine. I won't get a chance to reply to all of them but let me assure you I have read them all. Some of the suggestions have already been added and some are too difficult for my programming skill level. IF you had a great idea that does not get into the program it's probably because I can't figure out how to get it working.

Several people have asked what programming language I use. For those interested I use an object oriented pascal editor/compiler named Delphi. I use an older version but it is comfortable for me and the upgrade is expensive. I have programed in this language for several years but I'm still learning.

I took a break form the program for today. Sometimes giving it a rest helps you see things better when you get back to it.

You can now download the latest updates to the Scrollsaw Workshop Stencil Printer program. Many of you emailed me with suggestions and comments about the program and I was able to use many of your ideas. Thank you for the help.

Remember that this program is still only a few days old. There are still bugs. The program is functional and I don't think there are any bugs that will stop you from using it. The reason I go ahead and release it is because many of you help me make it better and find the bugs.

Take a look at the video at the end of this post to see some of the new features. In the mean time download and run the install. The new install will overwrite the existing program so there is no need to uninstall the last one. The name of the new install is StencilPrintersetup2.zip
