  • My Scroll saw

    Hi everyone its me again,
    I have a question I live in SW France in a rural area where tools etc are very hard to come by if you get my can buy cows and sheep but a good scroll saw..not a hope.
    However I have managed to buy a make a saw which I presume will mean nothing to you its called "Build Worker" it cuts really well and quick and I am really happy with it at the moment, it has pin blades, not a problem BUT it has no blade tension ability, is it possible that it does it automatically? as I say it cuts really guys and gals must think I am a complete clown, but I just want to enjoy and I know you are the best lot of friends anywhere in cyberspace.
    Thanks for the advice

    We do not judge here so no we do not think you are a clown. if the saw cuts well I'm guessing it probably has a preset tension. Is there some sort of knob on the upper arm? Perhaps several pics so we can look it over for you? There are adapters available for some saws for pinless blades as well.

    If you need other help let us know....

      Will, welcome to the forum. Anxious to learn how your saw works without a way to apply tension. There must be some tension on the blade or it would not be able to saw. Keep us informed and good luck with it.

          A scroll saw without a tension sounds like a fixed arm saw, but if you can fit a blade into the holder, you would think there would be some type of tension just to allow that if not to tighten the blade down. Yes I would like to see a picture as well.

          With the great bunch of folks here on the forum, I'm very sure someone will be able to help you.....Welcome aboard!!

            Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

            Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

            Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
            HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
