  • 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.

        I have had my Bosch Miter Saw since early 2000 and have used them three or four times at the most, That said is this new or is used? I am almost certain that they are available from unless the saw model has been discontinued

        You can find them on ebay for your saw. Like KarlB, I have had my Makita Chop saw since 2010 and used the hold downs maybe three times. They have their purpose. That saw does need a bit of TLC. Check and make sure it is properly setup.

        Yeah they are pretty popular. My brother makes them and sells them in the central FL area. I gave him some hardwood pieces to make some.
