  • Air blower

    Hi All. I am new to scrolling. I have just purchased a used Pro Tech 3301 Saw at a very good price. However the blower does not operate. My question is can it be replaced, I have tried gooling the model but it seems Pro Tech have bitten the dust. Can any one help.
    Thank you

    Some folks have found the easiest way is to use surgical tubing and an air pump designed for an aquarium to replace a broken blower.

      It looks like Sears sells parts for Pro-Tech, but unfortunately the #330026-00 air diaphragm for their 3301 and 3303 saws is no longer available.

      Maybe you could try and order one for the identical Makita instead from ereplacement parts or somewhere similar.

        You might want to figure a way now, while it is broken to collect the dust instead of blowing it. Remember if you have sawdust on your glasses you have it in your lungs and that is not a good place for it.

          Got an air pump from Walmart and some tubing. $7.00 works a treat.

            Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

            For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.

            A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
