Workshop Sign Scroll Saw Pattern

Hang up a sign for your scroll saw workshop. There is a male and female version of the sign. I also included an extra bottom plate so you can add your name to the sign. The sign is 13 inches wide.

WEN 6550 Benchtop Thickness Planer, 12-1/2"

If I had to choose one other power tool to go along with a scroll saw it would probably be a planer. As scrollers we need access to thin boards. Being able to take rough lumber/boards and make them any thickness you need is a great addition to your workshop. 

Ideally, you want to have a band saw for resawing and a planer thicknessing but the planer needs to come first in my opinion.  The planer alone is wasteful but at least you can get a board the thickness you need. 

These inexpensive WEN tools are surprisingly well made. This WEN 12.5" planer gets 4.5 stars on Amazon with over 400 reviews. Amazon reviews are actually pretty good because they have verified purchase reviews. That does not mean there are not some dumb reviews on Amazon but they are better than nothing.

The current Amazon price is under $250. That's considerably less expensive than most of the comparable planers on the market. 

This video is a review of the WEN 12.5" planer from a user after several months of use. I think he does a good job showing the pros and cons of this machine.
