Extremely handy and gets a lot of use. I use longer blades for thicker stock. And blade change is a breeze from the top.

how does it hold up with resawing and vibration with no top support for the blade? i guess of course that depends on your jig saw too, this probably won’t work too well with a B&D pos lol

I had a work table that had a cut out for a router, jig saw and circ. saw. I got it in Japan. It worked great for the jig and router, but not good for the circ saw.
Nice job, but be careful. It can be kinda tricky using that. Mine got a little wild a few times, but I still have ten fingers!

Thank you all.
It works just fine, I’ve been using it over a year now. If you’ll notice in the first pic, The blade slips/cuts through a zero clearance and not a hole Hence the blade is much more secure and much less vibrations and drift. Also, you have to use the correct saw blades. As in UC or DC teeth which Bosch makes.Of course, this will never be able to do super accurate cuts (do to the nature of the scroll saw) but it has been indispensable in doing quick operations.

That would be even more usefull with an on/off foot switch.Good idea for a small shop.

It has a router kill switch on the side.

A foot switch allows both hands on the stock during start ups.

Ah, but there’s a reason that table saws or router tables or any stationary power tool that I know of don’t come with foot-switch since they were invented.

Yes there is but I’m not one of “them”.;-)
There is an after market foot switch available at most full service woodstores.FWIW, they are standard on most sewing machines.Not sure that putting one on a tablesaw is wise but scroll saws, routers,drum sanders and your jigsaw retrofit seems more of a safety addition.
