  • Got Started with a Pedal Powered Jigsaw

    Hello Forum Members

    I love old tools and all my stationary power tools are used and most are from the 40s, 50s and 60s and are belt driven.

    I started with jig saws at age 6 with my Dad's childhood Barrnes Velocipede type jigsaw. My brother has the saw now.
    I have two 18 inch Sears, Roebuck jig saws (103.0407), one since 1974. I also have a jig saw attachment for my old Magna Shopsmith 10ER.

    I just picked up an old Delta 24 inch scroll saw (believed to be from the 1940's, no model number, SN 10-3095) at a church benefit sale in April 2012. It’s a little rusty and was leaking oil but all the parts are there. I enjoy restoring old tools and look forward to sharing information on fixing them up.

      Charlie -- Welcome to the forum. I like old tools too -- partly because that is what I inherited. But I do have a newer scroll saw. Love to see pics of your old tools.

        Hi Betty - you surely have one heck of a lot of patience in dealing with Bruce!!!

        The important thing is that he appears to be heading in the right direction and hopefully it won't be too much longer before you can both put these issues behind you. And once he's recovered with your invaluable...

        Back 2 steps. He had to have a spot cut off his back for biopsy and the dr. had to go deep, needed stitches inside and outside, so no exercises for 2 weeks until stitches are out. He sure is high maintenance!

        FYI - I took delivery last week of a SKILSAW 8 1/4" blade portable table saw to assist in cutting pieces for segmented bowl work which I was very pleased to find out of the box was set...

        This is the definition of spalting, Basically it changes the color of parts of the wood as it decays. Turners love it.
        "Spalting is any form of wood coloration caused by fungi. Although primarily found in dead trees, spalting can also occur in living trees under stress. Although spalting...
