i made this because that cheap plastic guard between the table and the blade kept bending down and making my work jump…so i built this top and it DOES NOT move at all…to take it off i just twist the nails and it slides right off..i also thought you could make this to make your blades last longer, because the blade stroke is only 1 inch…therefor if i raise the table it uses the top half of the blade haha…just an idea…but i used 3/4 plywood kinda heavy to keep some weight on it and to reduce vibration…and it also makes it a bigger work area…and those 2 last pictures are my 2nd and 3rd scrollsaw project …still trying to learn all i can about the scrollsaw.

thank you for your time! please tell me what yall think about it :-)

Troy, I have the same scroll saw and acknowledge your complaint. I may copy your table top but in 1/2” rather than 3/4. Otherwise, for an inexpensive machine, it does OK.
