  • Just a heads up, and hope I am wrong

    I received a PM from a new member asking for advise on the use of a new Sears Scroll Saw.

    Something about the PM triggered a "Is This For Real? Could this be a Troll on a Phishing trip?" reaction.

    The person requested a response to an AOL account.

    I hope I am wrong, but I wanted to pass a warning on to all members. If you also get such a message, don't reply to the AOL address.

    I have alerted BobD and Admin on this issue. Let's let them decide if I am wrong, and let's hope I am. Then I can apologize to Nancy.

      I got a similar PM asking if I'm a carver and if I have a website and to respond to an Excite email account. It's a brand new member with no posts showing.

      Just seemed "phishy" to me.

        I am guessing that your clamps have probably spread due to usage. I am not aware of any aftermarket clamps that fit your saw. Did you look at to see if they sell clamps for your model? Sorry I could not be of more help.

        I have a craftsman saw. The blade just slips out.

        We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.
