Topic tags/keywords: scroll saw sander

My parents (deceased) bought me my first woodworking tool in the Dremel 57-2 Motoshop- I still have the machine but I’m looking for new/used accessories and a little help getting it back in working shape. I somehow managed to keep it through the years. Every time I enter my shop I see it sitting on the side waiting to get back into the game performing a task… sentimental as it sounds, it is the tool that sent me on my way to slivers, dust and self accomplishment. I owe it to my parents to say thanks for their ‘gamble’ to get it running. Any help, directions to resources, ideas is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Steve1038

I know that it might be a long shot.
Have you tried contacting Dremel?

For accessories and parts, ebay and patience will probably be best bet. What needs to be done to get it in working order?

I’ve contacted Dremel, they do offer a reprint of the manual. Parts and accessories… no go.

The machine is in really good shape- cosmetically and somewhat mechanically. Motor runs great, cleaned the unit- disassembled and now will not work. Will not reciprocate? I’ll have to go back in and reset the bushings. Need some new rubber feet, accessory power take-off shaft and the sanding disc, bushing for attaching, buffing wheel-4” OD. Blades can be purchased and readily available.

E-bay will probably be your best bet for accessories.

Cheers,

I think your correct. The old tool houses who used to invest in parts and have volumes of inventory are just a thing of the past. Thanks for your help.
