Handicapable Scroll Saw Pattern.

3 million people in the US use a wheelchair to help with their mobility. 199 million people in the US wear glasses to help with their vision. If you wear glasses are you ever prevented from entering a building or public transportation? Probably not. Even though we have federal legislation to protect handicapped people there are still many places where access is difficult or impossible for those who use a wheelchair. 

We all know that it is not a perfect world. There will always be places where access will be limited to those with mobility issues. We can do better. For a look into the life of a person who is in a wheelchair read this article. "New York has a great subway if you are not in a wheelchair.". Imagine getting off at your subway station, only to discover that the only elevator to the surface is out of order.

Simple Programs I Wrote to Make Your Own Patterns.

These programs are donationware. You can freely use these programs without cost. If you get substantial use and would like to make a donation then that is appreciated but not required. There are links on both programs to donate. There is very limited tech support for these programs. I will answer simple questions but troubleshooting problems will be limited.

Please watch the video tutorials before you ask any questions. Most questions are covered in the videos.

These programs have been around for many years so they are debugged pretty well. If you do run into a bug feel free to drop me an email. 

Creating desk name plates and keyfobs have always been popular with scrollers. My Scroll Saw Stencil Printer program makes it pretty easy. Watch the video below if you want to see the program in action. This program is Windows PC only. If you are on a MAC or any other system see the Online Stencil Printer below.

This online program is not nearly as feature-rich but it gets the job done. It will do keyfobs and desk nameplates. It has the advantage of working with any operating system because it is online. It also has the ability to print multiple patterns on one sheet of paper.
