    Nice even spacing on the scroll... Clever idea. Like a lot of tools on here, obvious when you look at it but just not thought of it.

    Nice scroll jig, But I couldn't help but wonder why he didn't take two minutes and weld together a chipping hammer?

    Claw hammers a dime a dozen (well almost) used.

    As for the scroll machine I'm suitably impressed, I don't believe I've seen using chain in this application before. It is really neat and frankly got my mind to working.

    Imagine if you will double or tripple wide chain where you progressively uncreased the roller diameter. This would allow you to open up the scroll smoothly if you wanted. Or just use a very long chain for making things like grates for a grill. All in all I really like this beast.
