  • need to find table inserts for scrollsaw

    I bought a dremel scrollsaw about 4 months ago, and having a blast. however, i have worn out a couple of handmade table inserts due to the fine closeup work i do, and have been trying to find someone who sells the inserts....it doesn't have to come from a dremel, just needs to be the right size, and i believe they are standard sizes....does anyone know where I can find them...i really need close cut inserts (not large holes)...thanks

    My old saw is a Dremel 1800 and I had a similiar problem. I called the number listed in the owners manual and they sent me two inserts at no charge, nad I received them in a week if I remember right. I posted something about it back in the Spring of 2005 here in the forum, I'll dig around and see if the topic is still available.

      you said the ones you wore out were hand made, can you not just make more? Of course I am sure you can buy them somewhere, but they will not likely be zero clearance which it sounds like you want.

        I make my own inserts from BBply. They are easy to make and I can make the hole as small as I want.
        There is an article in issue 22 but if you don't have that issue or cant find it, let me know and I will send the info to you.

            I made my own out of acrylic I had laying around- It cuts very easy and didn't splinter or crack at all- I needed it to be a hair thicker so I glued some rubber band sections underneath. it has worked great so far- I am planning on doing one for my bandsaw as soon as I get around to it.
            In the mean time you can order those from sears in the repair department- I have ordered screws from them for my saw before and if you need a part number just let me know and I will look it up

                Am I missing something here? Dremel was not only mentioned twice, but in the second post the address, phone number etc. was given. Also mentioned was that they sent out inserts which arrived in a week. Is there a reason you say that no company makes inserts?

                  I have a problem with the little insert that is around the blade. It is not the same height as the table. Causes me problems with the wood getting caught on the edge. Is this what we are talking about?
                  I am trying to figure out how to add something to make it a tad higher or cut out a new one somehow.

                    Dragon,
                    If it's too low, I'd take it out and put a few strips of masking tape under it...to build it up to the proper level. The blades will go right through the tape...

                    Forgive my typing; I cut myself carving at lunch, and never realized how much you use your pinkey finger while typing...

                      Dragon -- I use rubberbands glued under my little insert- works good for me and it stays in tight. I don't know why they can't make the table and the inserts the same height but then who knows what goes on in manufactures minds

                        Thank you for the information. I will have to try either the tape or the rubber bands later. I just broke a knob on the stupid saw. Trying to make it square and the knob broke off. No more adjustment...Must go back to the store with the saw.

                          I put masking tape under the insert and it worked very well. Wish I had known this before. Thanks

                            I was thinking a dab of hot glue could shim the insert. Place the insert on the table and set it while it cools.

                            Bob, I won't go into the basic rules of cutting away from yourself when handling a sharp tool.....only because it is something I never do myslef.

                                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
