Scroll Saw Made Mostly Out of Wood.


Recommended Posts

When I was in my early teens (back in the late 50's) my grandfather made me a foot powered scroll saw. He built the parallel arms mechanism of hardwood and mounted it to an old treadle sewing machine table and frame. A belt driven shaft turned an eccentric shaft that engaged a slot in the lower arm. Variable speed and room galore! Man did I ever spend hours cutting up plywood on that thing until one day, in the process of moving it, the cast iron frame got broken.
