Use the Scroll Saw Keychain Maker to start a small keychain business. Build yourself a nice display and make up severl keychains with common names. Sell at craft shows, on Ebay or at work. Everyone needs a keychain. Take custom orders. Heck just make them and give them away as gifts. It's all made easy with the Scroll Saw Keychain Maker. Watch the video demonstration then download the file below and get started with the fun.



The following link will start the download process. After the file download is complete just click the setup file and the program will be installed.

Step One: Download the software

Step Two:
Type in the name that you want to cut



Step Three:
Because there is no save option in the software - you are going to need to take a screen shot and edit the name out in your image editing software



Step Four: Save the image and then import it into Designer



NOTE: as you import the image "Lower" it in the impoter to get rid of the background - just leaving the keychain itself.



Step Five:
Once you have the image saved in Desinger - the rest is kind of an experiment. Some of the images can be placed directly on the board and will cut fine - some need a little fine tuning in the Pattern Editor.

If Designer won't let you cut the image out then double click on it and open it the Pattern Editor. Once you have it open in the Pattern Editor - click on "Filter" - select "Smooth" and set it to 10 - click OK. Now take the "eye dropper" and select the empty background - then select (or delete) the green areas from around your design. (this is making the spaces between the letters just a little larger)



When you finish editing it then select "File" then "Save Pattern to Library"

Step Six: Place the images on your board the way you would like it....



Step Seven: Right click on your image and select "Outline Pattern(s)" - when you have your outline highlighted you will see the "cut out" or "saw" icon lit up (hopefully - if not repeat step 5) if it is lit up then click on it and set up your cut out



NOTE: it is very impotant that you delete the original image from your Pattern.... it will make some funny cuts if you don't.





Hope this helps, Jason

On now to do this. I would guess that the cutout would be best suited for the 1/16" bit on thin stock. Probably best for HDPE vinyl.

Rheal, I bet this answers a lot of questions you had from the other post.

When you plave the image into designer, what are your default settings for depth and height.
Mine are at 0.25 and height is 100

When I select the outline option, a lot of the outlines are very jagged. When I get home from work tonite I will post some pictures.

The image in Designer is only going to be as clean as the image that you import - and the settings really don't matter.....
