  • Blade Clamp broke

    Hi all

    First off, I know my scroll saw is somewhat cheap, but what do you expect for a beginner..... I have a Ryobi 16' SC163VS that I think sells for about $100, I have done three maybe four projects on it ( X-mas ornaments) and the blade clamp screw broke. I know this girl cant be a brute but not that much, (just call me Zena), heehee ; p... Need help on trying to rig this puppy so I can use it again so that it's easier to use and without having to go buy a bunch of screws just in case I brake the next one.
    Thanks for all your help.

    My only suggestion is DTR....dump the ryobi! lol Get the DeWalt! I will add to this, I just heard from a scroller that the Delta 20 or 120 something like that is actually better or will give DeWalt a run for its money,,,,so....I would look at both at least!

      i had a simmilar saw foor about two weeks. i agree, dump the saw. i bought a comprable delta saw for around $100. If you keep the saw, i found thumb screws at the store. Remember that this is a metric machine. I belive they were 13mm. I could be wrong. one word oof caution. After I got a new clamp (ryobi sent me one on warranty) the orther screws and heads were breaking on me. If you just bought hte machine, try returning the machine.

        Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

        Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

        I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

        Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
