Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

Thank you for serving your country.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself almost a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Michael, did you ever get the problem resolved with the blade clamp on your Skill 3335? I have the same scroll saw, and I had the same problem, except I didn’t lose the screw but rather the threads on the screw stripped. So, I did a modification as shown in the photo here. I drilled a hole through the blade clamp where the original screw hole is, and put in a 1/4-20 thumb screw and put on a nut with a star washer. I also used a tiny amount of white lithium grease just on the threads of the screw just where the nut is. This not only has solved my problem, but it also make blade changing a whole lot easier than using the stupid set screw and allen wrench to do the job. Hope this information is helpful to you, and I realize that the topic that you put on the forum re: your blade clamp screw is probably quite old now.


Have your say...
