        Judging from your description you might be better off purchasing a new one, particularly if you plan on doing a lot of scrolling.  8)

      I agree with Bandaid , if you are going to do a lot of scrolling get your self a new saw. But as a cool keep sake, take pictures of that old saw and see if anyone can help you tell what it is.

        Now this is fun.
        Naylak are you aware that the original question was asked in 2002 Of course the response is appropriate but if you are having so much time to dig this deep into the archives you need to get out and make some sawdust....LOL Now don't take this wrong just having fun so don't take it personal.

          I know this is an old post but this saw sounds like an old treadle saw. I wish there were pictures.

            Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

            OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
