For some time I’ve thought of trying to use one of my spare jig saws to create a scroll saw. I’ve obviously not been in any great hurry to do this. However, a Do It Yourselfer friend mentioned to me some time ago that he had a scroll saw he wanted to get rid of because he never used it. He mentioned it again recently so I asked him what he’s take for it. He said $20, so I sealed the deal. He didn’t give me the model number, but said it was an older saw and was a Dremel with 2 speeds. Looking around, I think the only Dremel scroll saw that matches is the 1671. [EDIT] It’s a 1672, the difference being that the 1672 has a quick release tension knob Yahoo!
There’s not a lot of info out there on this, but the little I found sounds encouraging. My friend has the manual, but it’s also available online. I think this will make a good addition to my arsenal of tools. I am curious though as to how much it sold for when it was new. From the manual, it may date from 1994.
