So, if you use a scrollsaw, what brand, make or model do you use? Pros and cons appreciated. I'll start; Delta Model 40-560 Type II with quick clamp, blade clamp. Pros, not terribly expensive, Two speed, very fast blade clamp/unclamp (important for fretwork), up front tension release/adjustment , fast tension release. Cons, some vibration, small table, never use the slow speed, adjusting the blade clamp for different blades cumbersome.

Still cleaning my shop guys! Ya I know, been on this adventure for three weekends now and I am still finding items of great interest in the dark reccesses of my humble abode. Many years ago, I came back from my duty station in the Army on a two week leave, during those two weeks I helped Dad on a few woodworking projects and we pulled out this Craftsman 100' tape to measure something, I think we were doing some layout for some garden trellis or something, and during our work a screw came lose, the whole thing came apart and the tape jumped out and landed in a big heap of a tangled mess, it is a steel tape so it was just a big springy mess on the ground. He was ready to trash it on the spot, it was his Dad's, so the tape goes back a bit in family history, though I am not sure how old it is exactly. But I saved it from doom, I jumped on it and told Dad to back off! It can be saved! Well, I rolled up the steel tape on itself, and put the tape and the case into a plastic bag with the hopes of reviving a bit of family history later on. So yesterday, about 25 years later I came across this old plastic bag, with the tape still in it. It was still jacked up, and I was in the mindset yesterday to sit down in my patio, spread the tape out, and figure out how to put this back in it's case and get the wind up crank to work again. I got the tape back in ok, the wind up mech works but I am still missing something that holds the mechanism in place, but at least the tape is home and happy now. I love this old tool, it's in primo condition, and ol grandad owned it, so it's even more special. It is well made, Made in the USA, Sears and Roebuck, when Sears was great. It still even has the original plastic case. I love it, because when you see the tape in the case, it looks all messed up, old and tattered, but when you pop the cover off the case, a jewel is residing inside, kind of like a pearl in an oyster. Oh yes, and did I mention the case is covered in leather!
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
