    Re: raised logo

    It's a saw that sits on a stand or table top....its kinda like a jigsaw thats stationary but it has a tiny blade so it makes really tight turns and cuts......i have a porter cable one and LOVE it....one of my favorite tools

    Re: raised logo

    Only problem is, if you're doing closed letters, i.e. O or R or P, you would have to cut through it to the inner circle with the band saw, whereas the scroll saw detaches to go inside the circle to cut it out.

    Re: raised logo

    Yep, there are several ways to go with doing logos. Foam, wood, or anything that will raise up the surface will work.
    There are differences in each way and each poses it's own pros and cons.

    I'd go foam. Easy to work with, and IMO the soft edges look better for stuff like this.

    release cuts make using a band saw much much easier if you have to.

    true...I just remember in high school wood shop the idiots in there would break blades left and right. We had a huge industrial sized one from like WW2 or something like that and it sounded like a gun shot when the blade went
