  • Vintage scroll saw identification

    Good evening, I have recently bought an antique scroll saw. The saw has no identifying markings. I have attached a picture bellow. I really don’t know much about the history of these machines, and I found nothing elsewhere. If anyone can help that would be much appreciated.

    Wow that is different? I have never seen one with that type of mechanicals. No markings on the casting anywhere?
    That would be a fun restoration.

      No Markings and a front mounted flywheel ? Really interesting & cool Crayfish

      I've seen a few and own one pedal scroll saw that was converted to electric, but nothing like this.

      If I were to guess, it looks like it may be cobbled together from other saws ?

      One person you could ask the THE EXPERT on scroll saws, Rick Hutcheson

      here's his website:

        Thanks, I will ask him. I do not believe this is a Cobbled together saw based on its construction, and 2 of the exact same saws sold on eBay a while ago. The only website with any information is :https://www.worthpoint.com/worthoped...-motor-vintage
        which suggests these type of saws where produced then.

          Got it. Your picture was rather dark and could not see the construction.
          I still don't think it was mass-produced though.

            In 1954 I had one similar to that which had a spring return in the top arm for blade tension. It was set up on a bench for me by my father and had a treadle system to run it ..... I have no memory of the brand of machine.

              Two corrections to the above: it was 1950 and the saw was an Eclipse brand.

                Just looking at The New Scroll Saw Handbook by Patrick Spielman and found a picture of this saw on page 47. Make is unknown and photo was submitted by a Henry Aldinger. Is submitted as an early electric scroll saw.
