Thank You for your Service Awards Scroll Saw Pattern.
First I want to ask everyone to keep the people of south Texas in your thoughts and prayers. Hurricane Harvey has hit and is doing much damage. It sounds like the next several days will produce terrible flooding. I saw one estimate that as much as 50 inches of rain will fall in the next seven days. If you live in that area of the country please keep safe.

This set of "Thank you for your service" patterns are eight inches in diameter. The graphic below shows all five of the branches that are included.


Scrollers Drill Review:

I had some feedback from the video review I did on the Scrollers Drill from The video had a lot of views so I know some of your were interested in seeing the product.

Here is a typical response from present owners of the drill.
"Steve, I have been using the scrollers drill for 3 or 4 years now I wouldn't use anything else now. I find it very handy and alot easier to use than a hand drill or drill press. I will have to try the tie on the button didn't think of doing that.". 

Here was some feedback from another reader.
"I fail to see an advantage to that drill over my Dremel in a routing attachment.  The switch stays on and there are two posts so it doesn't wobble.  I have never tried angles so don't know about that but I have used a it quite a while without any problems.  It has a larger base so slides around the work piece fine and is easy to see through."

I appreciate the feedback both positive and negative. That's how we learn from each other. Personally I really like the Scrollers drill but I understand that we all have our own ways to accomplish things. If you see or purchase a product that you like let me know and I'll try to get the word out to everyone.
