Holiday Gnomes Scroll Saw Pattern.

Meet Two-Bit and Half-Pint. These holiday Gnomes will bring you luck in the new year. I don't know if I believe in lucky charms but after this year I'm not taking any chances.

These are super simple to make and they come in two sizes. The small gnomes are both under 5.5" tall. The large gnomes are just over 10" tall. I think the large ones will make nice garden gnomes. Just make sure you give them a good protective paint job.

My wife tells me that gnomes are popular holiday decorations this year. I know it's getting late for holiday decorations but I think they make fun anytime decorations.

SiberianWoodworker, Sculpted Compound cut Scroll Saw Puzzle Patterns. 

I don't know this gentleman but I really like his sculpted compound cut scroll saw puzzles. The video shows his technique. He has an Etsy page where he sells his patterns.

There is certainly a considerable increase in the skill required over normal compound cut patterns but the results look worth the effort. If you are reasonably comfortable with power sculpting then give this a try.


Personalized Christmas Ornament Patterns are ready to order:

I am ready to start taking Personalized Christmas Ornament Pattern orders.

I can do first or last names but remember that more than ten letters will be more difficult to cut.

The order form will take up to 20 names for people and 5 names for pets. If you need more than 20/5 then start a second order.

You will not pay until you have the patterns and are 100% happy with them. There will be an invoice sent with the patterns to your email. You will have the option to pay securely with a credit card or send a check to the included address.

I am shooting for a three-day turnaround but that may be difficult for a few days until I get all the kinks worked out. I'll do my best. You can set a bookmark for each of the order forms but I will post them almost every day until Christmas.

$2 per/name no minimum.

Scroll Saw Chuck Heads by Pegas Made for DeWalt & Delta

Upgrade your Scroll Saw with Pegas Blade Chuck Heads Made for Delta DeWalt Scroll Saws

Note - the Regular Pegas Blade Clamp will also work well for the DeWalt - a popular choice.

These Blade Chuck Heads” (also known as Blade Clamps) were developed in Switzerland by Pégas in association with the HEIG engineering school in Yverdon. 

The studies and the tests demonstrated that the weight of these heads is in direct relation with the service life and the vibrations of the machine.

See Steve Good of the Scroll Saw Workshop's full review, plus detailed assembly instructions.

This Set includes lower and upper blade clamps compatible with the Dewalt DW788-20 inch scroll saw, and the Delta 40-694-20 inch scroll saw.  Works perfectly for BOTTOM and TOP feeding scrollers.

1) These new heads are slightly lighter than the original Dewalt/Delta Chuck Heads which puts less stress on the mechanical parts of the saw and reduces vibration. 

2) Changing Blades is easier and faster

4) Protection of the mechanical parts of the scroll saw.

5) The assembly of these new Heads is very simple and takes only a few minutes.
