The mount is uni-strut so the motor can be leveled in 4 directions up. down and side to side.

Nice stuff. Well, built, well restored, and obviously well loved. Thanks for posting. Is the bandsaw done yet? What’s keeping you?

oldreddog:

You’ve done a super job of restoring the old machines…..they were so well made back in the day….I remember the Wards brand of tools….You have to have some age on you to remember those….lol. I used to really like taking an old tool and restoring it, but too many physical problems developed, so I had to give it up.

It’s great that you have put the love and care in these old tools…I commend you for that…..Cherrished tools that you brought back, and gave new life to…...thanks for posting them….I really like the “old ones”.....!!

I was give this Delta Rockwell 40-440 scroll saw, works great.

I don’t use it all that much but sure is fun having it around. This when I first got it, all the parts were there just put it together, built a new base for it. Need a belt guard but that will have to wait.
