This is a knob that fits on the blade tension screw on my DeWalt scrollsaw. The old version I had finally fell apart and I needed a new one to save my arthritic hands some abuse. I had made the old version as a tight fit on the screw head but this time I made this one as a slip fit. I do not always need or want it and I did worry a little about the extra weight on the end of the screw head.

Picture 2 shows the knob on the screw as I would use it, when needed.

The pattern for this and another version can be found on Steve Good’s blogspot.

Looks like it’ll work well and be a great help. Anything that keeps ya makin’ sawdust is a good thing!

Great solution, Jerrells.

I need to make one of my own.
