I saw the egg beater with the cordless drill and it happened that I was board as a stone in a puddle.
Then eureka I thought of my old jig saw and the fact that the guide is broken then I used all scrap from my available shop miscellaneous stuff.

So welcome to the Norwood 3000 a scroll saw made from bits and pieces it requires a few modifications to become a more effective work tool but here it is. If you would like one just send four easy payments of 200 dollars to me orders would be appreciated by Email as to keep my records clear thanks

Very cool. And funny post too. I like the idea, and I’m sure it will be better then breaking skroll saw blades all day.

Well, if necessity is the mother of invention, you have some real serious necessities…. Best of luck to you. By the way, do you have Aflac?

Just like the times of “The Great Depression” we will all be doing a lot more home made things soon.

I agree with hunter71. We all may have to be doing a lot more “improvising” very soon.

Well, if tom and hunter are right and they may well be, we are probably better prepared to do it than a lot of folks out there.

Trying to outdo my eggbeater huh?
OK, I’m up for the challenge. I’m headed to the cold, filthy (from snow melted off the cars), garage to invent another “green” tool and up the ante.

You’ll be sorry.

Lmao.

Great Idea! I love it when someone makes their own tools, either from scratch, or by re-using something broken.
