  • 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 haven't posted in a few months but I have been keeping up. I agree with what Mark is saying. To make everything for everyone would be very difficult. And I understand (from my wife's perspective) that computer apps are totally made for nerds - in her opinion. The breakdown is often between two of...

              Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

              With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
