Keep Work Area Clean

Posted by The Scroll Saw Lady on October 4th, 2008

Keeping your work area clean is not always the first thing on your mind when you go out tot scroll saw, but it should be.

When I go out scrolling, there  tends to be a lot of scrap wood everywhere.  I have a  large trash can is behind me or to the side of the saw, so I have a place other than the floor to throw the scrap.

After some of the long sessions of scrolling you will probably need to sweep the sawdust off the floor or if you have a vacuum, it is time to vacuum too.

Remember your scrollsaw is a power tool and all of the safety precautions you use with other tools in the shop , should be followed on the scrollsaw too. Scrollsawing can be very relaxing, and it becomes easy to get careless unless you really think about what you are doing.  

Keep your work area clean so you can keep on scrolling for years to come.  Happy Scrolling!
