Bricklayer Plaque Scroll Saw Pattern.

http://www.stevedgood.com/estore/estore.html
Eight inch Professional Bricklayer plaque. 

Information:
Just wanted to let everyone know that I received all the email with interest in the Jet Clamp Jig. Sorry I could not reply to everyone but I got pretty busy today. There was plenty of interest so I will continue to order taking. I am waiting for my shipping packages and mail supplies. Should be ready to take orders later this week. I am printing and assembling several more tonight and tomorrow. I think I will have enough to go around.

Off Topic Information:
I had several emails asking about 3d printers. Understand that I am just getting my feet wet so I don't have very many answers. The main topic of questions involved whether or not they could do anything useful. I was one of those skeptical people also. I have somewhat changed my mind. 

I have become a believer that they are useful, but..... And that's a big but. In my opinion they only become useful once you master the CAD software so you can actually design your own parts. Yes you can download thousands of free 3d models and some my be useful. Most of them are just trinkets.

To me the real value comes out when you make something that does not exist already or something that is too difficult to buy. If you want a trinket printer they work great for that but how long will that stay exciting.

There are entry level CAD packages that you can use to design 3d patterns. Tinkercad is a good place to start. For me the holy grail was when I found Autodesk Fusion 360. It is cloud based CAD software with a very advanced tool set. That advanced tool set come with advanced training. I probably have 20 hours of training in the last week alone. I still feel like I have just scratched the surface. It's a good thing I retired last year because I'm working 60 hours a week now. :) I have no idea how I ever held down a real job. Those are 60 hours of pure pleasure which is much different than a 40 hour grind.

To make a very long story short I am happy to talk with you about 3d printers but just remember I am a total noob. I am also all ears if you have information to share with me.

I may not have mentioned this before but Bear Woods carries a strong selection of hardware. Screws, picture hangers, wire and lots more. Remember to select the small package shipping if your order is eligible. That will save you quite a few nickles if you are in the U.S.

This item may be of interest to some of you. The value is pretty good. The Heritage Wood Scroll-PAK is available in 5, 10 and 20 SF packages for a nice price. Here is their description.
Our Scroll-PAK® is an assortment of wood that just didn't quite measure up to the perfect standards of Spec-WOOD® and Scrollsaw Blanks.  Pieces can be from 1/8" to 1/2" thick, 2" to 12" wide, and from 6" to 24" in length and may have saw marks on one side.  This mixed pack is good for ornaments and other small projects.  If you use a lot of a certain type or size let us know and we will try to construct your Scroll-PAK® as close to your needs as possible.

Do you own a Jet 22" Scroll Saw. Watch this video for a useful jig.

http://www.stevedgood.com/estore/estore.html

I am still loving on my Jet scroll Saw that I got from Seyco.com. Is it perfect? No not quite but it is a very nice machine. One of the problems is the lower clamp. It's okay but I think I have made it better. If you own or are looking to buy the Jet JWSS-22 scroll saw then do yourself a favor and watch this video. If the interest is there I will make this available as both a DIY and finished product.

The DIY will probably cost around $5 for the digital file. Assembled, tested and shipped will be around $15. Watch the video and send feedback. 

I'll be giving more details in a day or two. 

The video is best watched in HD, full screen.
