The small clock uses a 1 7/16" clock insert. The large pattern will require a 2 3/5" clock insert. Check out Bear Woods for all your clock parts needs.

Welcome, New Scroll Saw Owners.

If you received a scroll saw for Christmas, congratulations. You are about to start a hobby that can be fun and even profitable. The scroll saw is a very versatile tool. You will find thousands of patterns that range from easy to challenging. Don't be afraid you tackle a pattern even if it looks more difficult than you think your skill can do. You will be surprised how quick the learning curve is.

I have several resources here on the blog to help get you started. I also have thousands of free pattern available in my online catalog. We have a community forum where people from all over the world chat about the hobby. They are a friendly bunch so check that out.

I have a YouTube channel with hundreds of videos about our scroll saw hobby. I have reviews, techniques, and more to keep you up to date.

Make sure you spend some time looking around the blog. Every post I have made since 2007 is on the blog so you can spend years and not see it all. If you look in the left column of the blog you will see a timeline selector, to go back in time.

Make sure you sign up for the newsletter subscription. It is free and will ensure you do not miss a free pattern or other content. The newsletter goes out almost every day will a new pattern.

I also have an eStore with a few cool things that I sell.

If you have questions I do my best to answer my email. I'll be honest that I get a lot of emails so some do not get answered. Feel free to repeat an email after a few days if you need an answer.

I just wanted to welcome all the new scrollers who are searching the internet for information about your new tool. I'm happy you found me and I hope you will come back often.
