$5 Scroll Saw SCORE!

Got a bit done this past weekend. Saturday was pretty much a lost cause. Hit a yard sale and picked up an old Sears scroll saw for 5 bucks...

It ran! I had to rewire it, put on a new switch and do a lot of cleaning and some fine tuning but she runs like a champ and I was cutting 1/4" aluminum with it Sunday morning!


I may do some cleaning and give her a coat of paint but that will come later...

Looks like it, but it isn't. Very stable, didn't even think about it until you mentioned it. It actually moves around very easily on the "wheel". Just tip it a bit and she'll go where you roll her...
I have used it quite a bit the last few days. From cutting that aluminum plate to trimming down some of the plastic dash parts for the gauge cluster redesign and cutting some foam board for the seat bracket brace design.
I am thinking about blowing it apart for paint. Red wheel and post with a hammer tone gray saw.
