Mama Gnome to Complete the Set Scroll Saw Pattern.

 Download the Pattern Below

The Mama gnome can be added to the two guy gnomes I published several days ago to make a set. 
Like the original gnome pattern, she comes in two sizes. 

I try not to work on the same subject for patterns too often but when I get dozes of emails about a pattern it seems worth the effort. I'll complete the set with this pattern.

I also updated the original gnome pattern to include the Mama gnome. You can re-download that pattern if you wish to have them together. 

Warning: If you try to download the old gnome pattern and it does not include the Mama then you are getting your web browser's cashed file. Web browsers keep downloads in a cache so they are faster if you try to get them again. Either clear your cache, use a different web browser, or download the new Mama only file.

Another Reader Submitted Gnome from Mike: 

I received this Gnome photo from Mike. He took my gnome pattern and put his spin on it. His mother is a diehard Kansas City Chiefs fan so I'm sure she was thrilled to get the gift.

Thanks, Mike.

Price increases on some tools.   

Delta 40-694 Scroll Saw

I am seeing price fluctuations on some tools including scroll saws. I believe we are probably seeing increased shipping costs from international manufacturers and the cost of shipping delays on availability. I'm afraid we are going to pay for this pandemic for many years.

The Delta 40-694 was selling in the $350 range and dropped as low as $299 sometimes. Right now it is priced at $536 on Amazon, $530 at Walmart, and $393 at Home Depot. I can suggest that the plus $500 price for the Delta is not a great deal. I like the Delta 40-694 but not so much at $500 plus. I think there are better deals.

At $299 it was a steal. $393 at Home Depot is still in the good buy range. Just make sure you shop around if you are looking for one of these saws.
