I made a stand for the Shopmaster scroll/jig saw. I repurposed (hate that word) a stand from a RAS. It was a bit low so I added some long leveling feet to it. Now it is about right. I’m getting the hang of using this saw and loving it. Don’t know why I haven’t looked into scroll saws a long time ago.

Don’t know why I haven’t looked into scroll saws a long time ago.

I felt the same way when I first got one… they are quite addictive. Your spring top saw might not be able to handle really fine blades, but there is a lot of stuff you can do with them besides uber-detailed fine scroll work :)

Cheers,
Brad

You can get some information on your saw at http://vintagemachinery.org/ It looks like a very well made machine compared to today’s offerings.

Yes, thank you. That is one of the first places I looked when I started researching this old tool. I actually found some info also on an ad that I found. Not much to the saw so not much to maintain or adjust.
