How to Use Red Ink to Make Scroll Saw Patterns Easier to See and Lay Out
posted on February 1, 2011 by Woodworker's Journal
Scroll Saw Outline To make line marks easier to see when lined up with a silver or black scroll saw blade, using red ink makes for a pretty good contrast.

I used to get eyestrain from continually aligning the black blade with a black pencil line when doing lots of scrollsawing. Now I trace my patterns with a red pen instead. It provides a line that’s easier to reference against the dark blade. Old style Bic® ballpoints with the long tips work best, but if you can’t find one, any fine-tipped red pen will also do the job.
