Re: Breakout when scrolling 3 layers
- I have also had problem with tear-out with plywood I bought at Lowes and
Home Depot. The problem is that the glue used and the thin surface
layers are low quality and not good for much of anything smaller that a
couple of inches wide. Even then the top plys will flake until a good
finish is applied. This seems to "glue" the plys down.
Have him contact a local maker of quality cabinets to ask for scraps
from their process. They will often have pieces large enough to use and
the quality of their wood is far superior since their reputations depend
Be advised that I continue to forward all of this incredible information and help to my scrollsawing brother. I never cease to be amazed at those willing to help a fellow hobbyist!
I belong to a few other Yahoo Groups involving my ham radio hobby. I've recently tried to imagine getting along without the available information via the Internet, rather it be help with a problem or simply researching, and I simply can't get my head wrapped around it!
Thanks again to you all.

I use 3M super 77 to apply the patterns and then mineral spirits to remove the pattern just dampen a rag and then use that to dampen the pattern with the rag wait about three minutes the pattern pulls right off in one piece and a quick wipe takes the rest of the glue off of your project, have never had it affect my projects BUT I am not sure about more porous woods. I have been doing it this way for 10 years now.
