Last week, human Y bought an electric scroll saw. It's called "General." I think this model is the same as "Excalibur," which is sold in the U.S. and Canada.

Scroll Saw

She bought this machine for making automata. She has been hoping to make automata for some time but she hadn't had enough space to make them before. She was in Japan, where the houses are located close together, so she couldn't make any noise. Now, she is in Australia, there are wide yards and she doesn't have to hesitate about making a noise. She thought if she didn't buy a scroll saw now, she would lose the chance. Yes, she is seriously going to make automata.

Unfortunately, she does not have any experience of using scroll saws. It is better to have experience but it is not a big issue. "Everybody was a beginner," is her motto, so she has started practicing to use her scroll saw.

Yesterday was her second day practicing, and she tried to cut a gear but it was difficult to cut the corner neatly. She needs more practice. YouTube videos are very useful for examples, as lots of people upload videos and show how to use the scroll saws. Some of them have the same scroll saw that she has.

To realize her dream, she practiced using the scroll saw again today.
