I have hated and loathed and despised this old Darra James  scroll saw since the day i paid too much for it.

It takes up too much room  for a useless hunk of junk.

 

So today I picked up the sledge hammer and was in mid swing  when it dawned on me:

Hey stupid this thing has a right angle reciprocating drive in it with an oil reservoir.

And I stopped.

 

Hey I  can build a die filer  or a saw toothing machine for those 24 TPI or 16 dovetails saws I make every so often. .   It's got a lovely  tilting table with no slop,

 And suddenly  it's life was saved.

SO now it'll be retired to some  far corner of all those  countless BILLIONS pf things I refused to throw away  and maybe one day some day - - - - If I can just find  the space.

Cliff this is why I don't show pictures of most of my shop for I can't get through the junk so I could take pictures if I wanted to.. It the very small pieces of wood that's eating my lunch.....especially with this carving thing I got going. Before I start carving I can see where I can glue small pieces on top of a few places here and there to give me a more wild swing of things... Probably don't affect anyone but me but hey, I gotta do something to pass the time.
