  • pin end pland to plain end blades?

    Is there a way to allow a (craftsman pin end) scroll saw to take plain end blades? I really want to be able to use them, but I got the scroll saw and some bades from olsen for free, and I really don't use it enough to justify buying a new saw.

    craftsman also makes a blade conversion kit to enable 16 inch scroll saws to accept both pin and plain end blades. it is available on the sears website for just at $25.00, and I Am sure you can get it at the retail locations also.

      You can also check out Frank Prozsgai's site. He has retrofit items for many brands of saw.

        I couldn't find anything on that website, and that sears part wouldn't help... I only have a 13" saw!!!

            I’m too young yet don’t meet other guidelines. We are still 75 and over or health care workers I believe. My husband is in health care, so he has now gotten both of his shots. At this rate, I figure I will be doing good if I get sometime this summer. Glad hubby got his, figure he was my biggest...

            Our appt is next week, I think. We are going to another county as ours doesn’t have enough. So they say. First one was cancelled for 2/1 as they had to make sure they had enough for the 2nd shot. Applied the next day and got the same appointment they cancelled. Go figure.
