  • mounting the saw to a bench

    I have always had my scroll saw bolted to a piece of plywood and just clamped it to my bench or the Work Mate. I want to bolt it to the work bench which is 8' long 12" wide and 1 1/2 " thick Maple, sturdy enough. My question is do I need a pad under the saw or just bolted to the bench. Thanks you, Don

    Which saw do you have Don? Does it vibrate with the clamps you have been using?

      Its a sears 16" VS, the vibration had always been a problem to me, but when I was younger I had better control than I have now and I find it harder to follow the line. Its been almost 15yrs since I've used the saw. Don

        I'd say you need a pad for that saw, and you may need to add some extra weight to the under carriage of the bench, to dampen the vibration. Try some sand bags under the bench.

            I would also use a pad Don.

              Farmers market "survey"
              by Linda In Phoenix
              Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
              I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
              For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

              The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

              Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

              Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

              So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
              I like the fact...

              Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
