Heart shaped clock

Pattern making is an art, either by machine or traditional it is the key to success in casting.

Geoff, Glad you found what you were looking for. The tool crib was great when I called for a custom cutter as well. At the time I didn't realize you were out of the US, but that obviously cause a problem...

I take your points about fabricating the larger parts of patterns and I do that as a matter of course, while the smaller details are cut and 'stuck-on'. Cutting those details has been a problem for for me.

I too have a scrollsaw, which is almost permanently set to a draft-angle, but I cannot achieve decent surfaces with it. This is 'my' problem rather than that of the machine, and I hope that by milling the twiddly bits my patterns will improve.

facing same problem with my scroll saw, the surface is not okay.
