  • This is for those scroll saw experts out there.

    Hi all,

    This is for those scroll saw experts out there. I have received an e-mail from someone who would like to know if it is possible to install an adapter to this scroll saw to use pinless blades:

    I hope somebody can help.

    The problem with that saw Pedro is the blades are 3"
    The whole drive mechanism is s flat c shaped piece of aluminum.
    I don't think there would be enough space under the housing to mount a blade chuck.

    If the size of the hole required is a problem you may be able to remove the pin from the upper blade insert the blade through the wood and replace the pin with a simple safety pin.

    That way you only need to drill for the width of the blade and not the length of the pin.
    The amount of vibration on that model of saw is quite large. The whole saw is quite light and tends to bounce around. You will find suction cups on the bottom of the saw that try to hold it in place.

    Nothing is impossible, but somethings are not practical, sorry for the bad news. If cost is a factor for the person who asked you, get them to check here. http://www3.telus.net/public/scroller/page11.html There are some links for home made saws there.
    Some look quite good.

        I see from the exploded diagram that the model you show isnt a "C" arm.

        I will sit down and shut up now

          Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
          And on each cloud touching the body ?

          Thanks

          I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

          Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

          What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

          Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

          I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...
