  • Whats the largest throat scoller you've ever seen or heard of?

    I'm curious to find out whats the deepest/largest throat scroll saw you've ever heard of or seen for yourself.

    All I've ever worked on is 20" and 26", but am interested to find out if there are any commercial ones deeper than 26" out there!!

    Cheers, BladeDancer

    My Excalibur has a 30" throat. This is the deepest throat available of currently available models.

      The throat on my RBI G4 Hawk is only 26 inches, I feel so inadequate
      Actually it is not so easy to cut very detailed things when you are leaning over a couple of feet of material trying to follow a line.

        I just located a 36" scroll saw on Ebay. The brand is Oliver and it's 220 volt.

          But that's what makes it fun.

            Blade.... you know , I seen a gale on tv one time that was useing something. that i couldn't figuer out. but was amazed. she was cutting something on a saw table. that hung in the air. the blade came down to the tabale. and up and down like a scrollsaw. but was hudg. is that a word? I seen no arm, and the tabale was so big, like a work bench. couldn't figuer it out. wish i would have taped it. but was cought off gard. i have been searching for it every sence. she was whiping her project around like there was no debth to the thing at all. if you know what this was let me know ok.

              I recall seeing a vintage picture of a commercial pattern makers saw in a foundry that had a throat of over 6 feet.
              There was a large spring mechanism suspended from the ceiling.
              If I come across the picture again I will be sure to post it.
              The limitation of throat size is overcome by technique.

                Here are some pictures of larger saws.

                This one has unlimited throat size. This saw is from Beach manufacturing.


                over 4 feet from Jones Superior Machine Co.
                I really like the belt and spring design for the recoil of this saw.


                over 36" from Oliver Machinery Co.

                Hmm I may need a bigger shop!

                      Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                      We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                      He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                      What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
