My Mother Scroll Saw Pattern. Guest video by Charles Dearing.
Another Mother's Day Pattern.

I had to dissemble the Seyco scroll saw I had on loan. It's going to be demonstrated later this week in another location. I really enjoyed cutting on that machine and I can't wait to get my hands on my new one when it ships. I came to the conclusion that is my favorite machine I have ever used. Like all machines it has some limitations but it's strength far outweigh it's weaknesses. It will be a strong asset to our community. I just want to thank Ray Seymour for the opportunity to demonstrate the saw.

DJI Phone Camera Gimbal OSMO MOBILE

If you need to use your smart phone for high quality video this is a nice tool. There is a learning curve but once you have it down it works great. Nice smooth video even while walking.
  • Active Track technology, automatically keep your smartphone facing you as you move
  • Smooths and even cancels out the movements you make, stopping camera shake and turning every shot into cinematic video
  • Motion time-lapse videos are an awe inspiring way to show the passing of time.
  • Share moments using YouTube Live inside DJI GO when mounted in the Osmo Mobile.
  • Take 1-second long exposures for light trails and dramatically blurred cars without a tripod.
