Valentine Roses Scroll Saw Pattern

Download Below

Just ten days left until Valentine's Day. 

This Valentine is 10.5 inches wide. There are some small cuts in the fretwork. I checked to makes sure that all the interior holes could be drilled with a 1/16" drill bit.

Scroll saw blades slipping out of their clamps on your DeWalt scroll saw?

This is a question I get several times a year. "How do I prevent the blade from slipping out of the clamp on my DeWalt scroll saw?"

Let me start out by telling you what not to do. Do not try to tighten the thumbscrew more to prevent the blade from slipping. That will only make the problem worse.

If you look closely at the photo above you will see the front of the clamp. Look even closer and you will see that the set screw and the thumbscrew are not meeting square. There is a small gap. This gap was caused by over-tightening the thumbscrew and bending the clamp.
