        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.

            Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
            And on each cloud touching the body ?

            I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

            Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!
