I have a pin end scroll saw. It has worked great for me so far, but I have found myself wanting to do projects that a plain end blade would work better because of the small hole needed and the fact that I can’t find any spiral pin end blades. I was reading on saw-online and they mentioned that there is an accessory that can adapt a plain end blade to a pin end saw. I have tried to find out more information on this via the internet, but have come up with nothing. Has anyone every hear of such thing?

I have not heard of such an attachment. But have your tried the different websites for the blade producers? (Crown, Olsen)

I am probably wrong, but seems that pin ends are on their way out.

It is a Tradesman scroll saw. I bought it a few years ago when I was just getting into woodworking and didn’t know a thing about scroll saws. For the price, it has been a very good tool with the exception of the pin end blades.

I used to have a pin end scroll saw. I don’t know where you are finding the blades. I did have an attachment that was two small things that you would put on the ends of the blades, you had to use an allen wrench to attach them to the blades, and then would attach that whole mess to the saw. It was cumbersome and awful. I got them from the maker of the saw, I think it was by Dremel. Easier solution, buy the Dewalt saw.

Steelmum is correct, it won’t add to your scrolling experience at all. Todays scrollsaws are designed to be quick and easy to work with pinless blades. I also use the Dewalt but any variable speed scrollsaw would be better than that accessory.
