God Bless America Flag Scroll Saw Pattern.

This pattern comes in two sizes. One is 14" wide and the other is just over 10 inches wide. The small size pattern prints on a single sheet of paper. The large pattern needs to be printed on two sheets and taped together, There is an optional backer board. Some of the letters will be much stronger if you use the backer.

Quick comment about email. I know I say this a lot but I feel like I need to so new readers understand. I am a one-man show. I spend several hours a day working on the blog. It is my full-time job. This includes making the patterns and all the business related fun. 

I set aside one block of time to answer email. I triage the email as well as I can. I answer the questions from customers who have made a purchase and need help first. After that, I start on the question from readers who are just getting started in the hobby and need help. Everything else comes next. 

There are days when as many as 100 emails will hit the inbox. Writing a well thought out replay can take several minutes. As you can tell it is not possible to answer every email.

If I open an email and it is several paragraphs long I will usually just move on. Please keep your questions as brief as possible. If I open an email and you call me a "dirty no good dog kicking scoundrel" because I did not answer your earlier email I probably won't answer that one either. :) It happens.

All kidding aside I do value your email comments and questions. If I don't answer, I have no problem with you re-sending the email again. I will do my best to get to as many as possible. 

Product Review. DeWalt DW788 Dust Collection System from Wonderland Woodcrafts:

There is a new dust collection system for the DeWalt DW788 scroll saw. I received this product from Wonderland Woodcrafts last week. This is not a paid review. They did send me the unit for free. In the video slide show below I show the install and use of the system.

This is an above and below table dust collection system. You attach it to your shop vac or dust collection system hose. The video will give you all the details.
