  • Craftsman Saw..

    I've seen some upgrade blade chucks for other saws, I'm wondering if there's one that would fit a Craftsman saw?
    I've tried everything but I just can't keep anything under a #5 blade in the chuck....or I brake them in half when I put tension to them..

    my 20 incher is pretty much useless when it comes to delicate work...

    there's a lady at work who is leaving us so I thought I would do one of those free humming bird patterns and give it to her as a going away present..

    I need a new saw!

      I have to confess...

      while checking out the site Carl posted about a retro fit chuck for my saw I had to get out the owners manul to see what model I had..
      while I was reading the instuctions (in very small print) I found out that the tension for the blade can be adjusted by rotating the tension lever...

      next time I won't wait 2 years to read the instructions..

      Thanks again Carl for the link to that site...it might of helped me out without buying anything...

        All I have to say about that Trout, is if you can do the job you are doing without adjusting the tension I can't wait to see what stuff you will be producing now!

          Well ... I am SO glad we tempered our enthusiasm. Show is cancelled. Apparently, things did not go as planned. Maybe next year.

          A modified Sue Mey pattern to fit 1" x 4" x 10" Hard Maple. Cut on the Pegas scroll saw using a Pegas #5 MGT blade. One side says "TEACH". Flip it over and the other side says "LEARN". After sanding, dipped in diluted Shellac, sanded again and another dipping. Comments...
