  • 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......

        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.
