Merry Christmas Word Art Free Scroll Saw Pattern.

This Merry Christmas Word Art pattern is 10" X 7". I am showing the project with the word art painted. That is optional but a nice water-based paint diluted down to a thin wash will give the project a vintage look. 

Road Trip!

IMPORTANT: I am going to take a much-needed break from the blog this coming week. 

Orders for Personalized Christmas ornaments will not be completed during the time I am gone. 
If you want Personalized ornaments now I will try to complete any order that comes in this weekend.

Signature Coin orders will not be shipped while I am gone. Any orders that come in from now through the next week will be completed and shipped when I return.

I will have access to email and will be able to take care of any problems that may come up while I am gone. If you need something feel free to email me. 

I do have a few posts in the can for while I am gone so you can get your pattern fix. :) There won't be as many posts as normal but I'll have a few ready before I leave.

A New Scroll Saw in Town. 

In 2016 Jet introduced the Jet JWSS 22B scroll saw.(My video review) It featured a unique upper clamp assembly that both clamps and tensions with a single lever. Like all scroll saws it has it's pros and cons but has in general been a solid addition to the scroll saw market. It retailed for $880.

Last month Jet added to their product line with the Jet JWSS 18B. This is basically the little brother to the 22-inch model. The throat of the new machine is 18 inches. This new model retails for $700. 
I have seen it priced online as low as $638. 

Other than the throat spec I don't see any difference between the two machines. You lose four inches of cut capacity and save $180. An 18-inch throat will cut most scroll saw patterns.  

I have received a few emails asking if I plan to review this unit. I doubt it. It is so similar to the JWSS 22B that a review would mostly repeat information from my review of the JWSS 22B.

It's always good news to have more choices. If you are looking to buy a new scroll saw or upgrade your current machine you now have another option. 

Last year I sold this Large Nativity set pattern for $5. I received a few email asking for it again so here is the post from last year. 

I am selling this large 14 figure lighted Nativity pattern for $5. It includes all the figures and the manger. All the figures are layered patterns that gives a nice 3d look. For scale, the Palm tree is a little over 9 inches tall. The Joseph figure is 5.5 inches tall.
