  • RBI Scroll Saw History - Models

    I'm a woodworker and a history buff - anyone have any knowledge of the history of RBI Scroll Saws made by R. B. Industries and the specific models they have made since they started in 1982? Any tid-bits would help.

    I know they were recently bought out. Maybe a good place to start would be with the new owners.

    Welcome on board. Do you cut ?

      Bought a RBI Hawk about 2000..

      I bought an RBI Hawk about 2000...they were in Harrisonville , Mo. , then shortly after went out or sold out the business....not sure where they went or who they are now.......need to find some parts.....mine still works excellent , but I have two scroll saws one uses pinned blades the RBI doesn't , would like to get the adapters to put pinned blades on the RBI , saves buying different inventory etc.....It's an excellent saw , but I use the Chicago for smaller work and go to the RBI when I cut larger pieces....the RBI has problems with the size #2 and scroll blades without the pinned end.....

        I appreciate the input from everyone but, I need clarify to my work? space. I originally stated my area measures 6'X10' and, it does. But, I only have about 5'X5' of available space and, that's without taking myself into consideration.

        I'll add in some food for thought too. I was unsure if I would enjoy this hobby (addiction) so I started with the Porter Cable from Lowes. I think it is a good entry level saw, 5 months later I found an Excaliber on Craigs List and have been happy ever since.

        Food for thought, When I first started scrolling my thinking was "all I want to do is this and I will never do that as it doesn't interest me". I didn't know I would be working with SSWWC or get sucked into creating Intarsia or doing large intricate fretwork, like Charles Hand designs....

        Thank you all for giving me a little more to consider. I thought I had covered everything in my mind until others chimed in!
        At least at this point in life, I'm not under a time constraint.
