    Welcome John. I had (have parked) my 20" Sears Contractor Scroll saw. I had to look something up on it for a part once and - it took a bit of time (patience? I don't use that word around scrollers very much because most of us just don't understand the concept) - be that as it may, I spend some amount of time going through Sears' web site and I eventually found my saw with a complete pattern breakdown and parts list. So, I'd say mossey on over to Sears.com and start going through their site. You might be surprised.

    Hi John,
    and welcome aboard. Sorry I don't have any info about that particular saw. There are some really good books out there to get you started. My first book was Scroll Saw Basics, by Patrick Spielman. I found it very helpful, to learn about different blade sizes and wood.
    Once you get started you'll find this hobby very addictive, we hope you'll post lots of pictures of your work, it's great to see how quickly a new scroller progresses.
    Good Luck and happy scrolling
    Marsha

    Hello group,

    I am brand new to scroll sawing. I just bought a used Sears 18" scroll saw and don't even know how to load the blades YET. I have recently been forced to retire from many years as an electronics Engineer/Technician and have always enjoyed working with wood in many forms. If anyone has any hints on how to find information about this old saw, I would be most receptive. the model is Sears 113.207600 18".

    Thanks,

    HI John, Welcome, I do have a old craftsmon saw. 18" mine uses tie end blades, that fit in the forks top and bottom. I had fun with it for a while but had to upgrade, i wonted to use straight end blades, they come in smaller sizes, and also they fit into smaller holes drilled to do the fret work i love to do. I am not sure if the Sears saw you are talking about is the same as a craftsmon, but i wonder, can you go to Sears and see if there is any impho you can get. or maybe on line. searching for that perticular saw? I bet Sharon would know. if she could just type. what all does your saw have, does it use straight end blades? does it have a blower on it. light , foot switch, speed control.? I know I said tie end blades but i think the right tearm is pin end blades. Welcome again, and enjoy your retirement. now you have alot of work and fun cut out for you. just browsing this forum will keep you busy for hours.you'll wonder how you ever got anything else done LOL.
    Evie Oh Ps. how is the tension set up. do you have a scrue type in the back of the top arm?

    I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

    Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

    What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

    I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
