Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


Didn't get much done this weekend, had too many visitors drop by. Some buying, some selling, some telling stories.

Scored a deal at my millshop on some cherry handrail that was left over and rejects from a job last year. 100' for 50 bucks.

Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


You may want to look at scroll saw blades of today's saws,.....you will notice something about them that separates them from BS blades.....

B,
They are not really compable. Band saw is not a scroll saw. What is your point? Oh no, I am going to have to figure out what works best, woa is me.

Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


You mentioned making your own out of A Band Saw blade...


There is a hopping affect if BS blades are chopped up and made for this type of scroll saw. Tooth set design- There is a topic on this over at the mother ship....

B,
Tooth set can be adjusted. There is a foot below the guides on these things to hold the work piece down to the table. Pictures of the old blades for these things look just like BS stock.

Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


Did some xmas shopping today, even picked up a few things for myself. I was able to find what I thought was an appropriate motor. Got in my pulley stash and found the correct paper pulley I needed, found an appropriate sized starter and was able to glue the table halves together.

How do you flatten that table to be perfect?

Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


I am looking forward to seeing her fired up.........I've seen a boat load of pictures on the mothership but no video.....


So THATs what the cherry wood was for,,,,,,.


I think he has a 16" jointer Deck, my guess is he will be doing a side by skim over the jointer head (guard removed)....then hand plane and sand the middle to flat

How big is that table anyways.........

B,
Oh my, that's some heavy lifting right there.

I thought he might have some early American skinning torture device that doubled as an enormous planer.

This just came to me... Darcy do you guys hook up power feeder's to those older machine's? And what about dust collection, do they even have them and if so, does it work well? Now I'm afraid I'm starting to head down a very dangerous road.

Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


The halves were pretty flat when I glued them up, one was just shy of 23" wide the other was 21". Both too wide for my 20" jointer. I set the bed rollers up a bit on my planer and skimmed the bottom, skimmed the top, then the bottom and top again. Put three 10mm dominoes in before I joined the halves. two of those clamps are older then the scroll saw. It is almost dead flat.

Literature called for a 38x40 or 40x40 table. the one on it was 36x38. as it sits it is 42 x 41 and heavy. I think I will trim it to 38x38.

I have a stock feeder on my 1885 Clement #2 saw bench. Some one made a nice metal shroud to cover the blade and do a pretty good job of getting the dust collected. Planer, shaper, CM, both sanders, both saws are hooked up to my DC.

Still have not messed with the BS DC yet. Jointers have totes underneath to catch the chips (bases are open under head) I have very old triangle head planer that you cant really hook up to DC.

Table is getting closer. Finding a spot for the motor may be interesting, not much clearance for the drive belt.

Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


I dug this thing back out and started working on the strain (top section) mostly because I have a project that I need this thing in order to finish.

I have to, no way to use it other wise.

Thinking about making it so I can fold it up when not in use.

Got to make these.

Just a thought D,

Bandsaw ...........



You close the cut line with a sliver of the same material/glue....., in some cases (when the corbel is larger) glue and compress the joint(glue sandwitch)...


I would love to see a video of your saw running......I think it's cool....

Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


I tried one and what I have to cut out is so small and detailed, I ended up tossing the corbel in the scrap pile. Gonna try this and if I can't get it right I am buying a big ass fret saw.

Re: Beach No.1 Ceiling Mounted Scroll Saw.


Well, sometimes things have a tendency to fade from the foreground.

I need this thing running last year. It was time to get busy.
