  • Pedal powered scrollsaw

    Don't know if anyone is interested or not but there is a pedal powered scrollsaw (reproduction) on ebay. Ebay number is 260058186046. Selling for $255.00 at this point. Think they normally sell for around $1200.00 new. This one needs a little work but not much. About 3 hours left.

    All that money for a broken relic?! Sheesh - someone can see something in it that eludes me completely.

      Interesting. The current price for a new one is $1,460, and they have a kit for a build-it-yourself electric saw for $210:

      Check out the hole-boring attachment for fretwork; that would surely be a nice thing to have on a DW788.

      Just the thing for a little cardiovascular exercise!

        You can find plans for building your own foot powered scroll saw at this link. Made common items you can find or make. wood, springs, cables, and a 26" bicycle tire.

            I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

            I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
            Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

            One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

            Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

            If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
