  • Pedal Power Scroll Saw

    I am extremely interested in building a Pedal Power Scroll Saw to take to shows as a conversation piece (and also to use on very soft wood).

    I remember seeing a pattern for this "somewhere". I hate getting old - can't remember where I saw the pattern.

    Would someone with a better memory than myself please give this blonde senior a hint???????

    Much ablidged

    Fred:

    Good to see you over here. I read your posts over at the other two scroll saw forums you are active at. Sorry, I haven't been by to visit your own forum much these days.

    But, back to your question: have you checked out Rick Hutchinson's web site? I thought for sure he had some plans for a bicycle style peddle powered saw. You know, peddle assembly from a bicycle with chain drive to a large wheel driving the arms up and down.

    When I looked, all I could find was a treddle style; it was way down near the bottom on the left hand side (the list of links.)

      Pedal saw

      I also have plans for the pedal power. The treadle is much smaller, in size and weight, and easier to use.

        Rick:

        Thanks for posting! I was beginning to think I was having a 'senior's moment' also. I just knew you had a pedal powered saw plans. Boy am I glad, my mind wasn't playing ticks on me again.

        Now, about my car keys......
        Came in the house...
        fed the cat....
        put the groceries away...
        now where else could they be.....

          Maybe it's the treddle style that I saw - now that you bring it up.

          Treddle would be much easier to use when one is standing in a booth - know what I mean???

          How about a "Treddle Power Scroll Saw" plan???

          I know, I know - I changed my mind again - At least I still have a mind to change.

              Are you sure you didn't fed the groceries and put the cat away? Ah, there they are....right where you put them.

                This video was taken where Bruce volunteers at the sawmill. Bruce is the tall one at the back of the saw.

                Cute Pattern.
                I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
