  • Magnifier

    Where can I find a lighted magnifier for scrollsawing. The only one that I have found is through Amazon. Are there other suppliers?

    Thanks :

    I think I got mine at Office Depot for around 60 bucks or so. Most any major office suppier's such as the one above carries them. You might also try the major hobby/craft stores in your area.

      I have always used a magnifier. I suggest one that takes a regular light bulb. I had floresent one and I had a hard time seeing the blade.

        RBI Industries, rbiwoodtools.com, has a magnifier with light designed for the scrollsaw. Well at least they market it for the scrollsaw. I purchased one for my saw, and it works fantastic, I dont know how I worked without it for so long.
        Good Luck.

          I just LOVE the circle light in my magnifier, but just cannot adjust my vision into the magnifier and feel comfortable. I have only tried using it a few times, but I just know its NOT FOR ME. Good Luck when you purchase one. Danny :+}

              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...

              Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

              What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

              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!

              I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

              Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
