  • 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 Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...

        Wow! That segmented bowl is amazing!

        Betty - I have an old Darth Vader helmet somewhere. Will that substitute Bruce's get up? Failing that there always my current biker's helmet Thanks very much for the safety advice and concern. Rest assured that safety is my priority these days....
