  • Foot powered Scroll Saw Plans

    I was looking for plans for a foot powered scroll saw...I had seen an ad somewhere for one made out of PVC pipe and a bicycle wheel...don't know if any of this type are worthwhile anyway. Any ideas...Thanks Bob

    Ah BOB you are a man with great tastes

    I love the idea of foot powered scrollsaw. I picked up an old treadle sewing machine. I havent got the plan for the PVC one but this link has a pedal powered one. And the price is right.
    Here is another one that looks promising So does the scroll saw stand.

    You can't get a better price for plans than free

    I would not expect to cut wood that is too thick, you would tire quite quickly.

            When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

            Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

            Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?

            Have you tried to rough up the thumb screws tips? How old are the blade clamps? may be time to replaced them.
