As I had never ever scrollsawed in my life I decided to try this.
With no scrollsaw on hand and, not wanting to spend big money on a scrollsaw to try it I decided to try to make one.
Some google images later I came up with some ideas that started spinning in my head.
I did not have any plan but made things as the building progressed.
The only thing I had planed whas that it did not have to ha a very deep throat, and it was to be made from plywood scraps and misc hardware that i had laying around.
Throat depth turned out to be 410mm
Total height of the saw is 650 mm.
I have not yet built a stand for it as I dont know where to put it.
It might be on a pullout shelf, I dont know
I am sure some of you think that dont waste your time building one, when you can purchase a much better one for a small amount of money.
Well, I like building machines just to see if I can do it, and i am sure the low end scrollsaws out there outperform my homemade one, but just for the fun of it.
If I was to start scrollsawing for real, I would buy one of the shelf that would give me a better result.
I embedded a short video from when I tested it.
Dont laugh of my scrollsaw “moves”.... I am a firsttimer on this, or a scrollsaw virgin if you like.
