    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.

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

    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.

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

    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:

    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.

    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.
