  • Scroll Sawing History in America

    Group Members,
    Attached is at least one adobe .pdf file (have had some problems uploading!) which is the beginning of some articles that I will post on the history of Fretwork/Scroll Sawing in America.
    I hope that this information will direct some attention and respect to those who came before us in this great hobby.

    Comments or additional information appreciated.

      Scroll Sawing History in America

      Group Members,
      O.K., I have given up trying to post the article to the web site. Some problem with the site timing out during my upload. I have posted the first segment of the History to my web site.

      http://www.peculiarfretworks.com/HL Wild.pdf

      This is a fairly large file, so if you are on a slow connection like I am it will take some time to load.

          Hi Richard,

          The reason you can't attach the file is because of it's size.
          You are limited to 4.77Mb for a .pdf type file, your file is 5.67Mb in size.

          Thanks for the thread, nice!

          Regards,

            Thanks Richard for the interesting read! I'm looking forward to the others.....

            I think Rich H. might have some of these saws in his collection or at least closely related.

              Upload issue

              Hi Marcel,
              I tried sending files under 3mb in size and they failed, the only file I was able to upload was about .8mb. I have plenty of room on my site for the files.

                    History plus more

                    You just never know what you will find on Ebay these days. I didn't expect to see this. It starts out with some history behind the scroll saw. Then it goes into a long discussion about scroll saws, differences, and a bit on how to use them. It's sort of hard to read because it's not broken into paragraphs, but it's sort of interesting none the less.

                      At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                      The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                      Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
