This is on my woodworking project bucket list. Every time I see the prices of these machines I just turn away and decide scroll sawing is not for me. Thanks to YouTube I have seen that it is possible to make an affordable homemade alternative. This drawing is a combination of several different homemade scroll saws on the internet. It is designed to have a 600mm (Aprox 24 inch) throat depth and a tiltable table as well as a toe to hold the work down. The arm that supports the toe could also be used to attach a led or similar light (which I did not add to the SketchUp plan).
How this plan will work out in practise still remains to be seen. When I get around to this project I will update this blog.
