I know this is an old post, but I have the same saw and I love mine. The bellows blew out and I cannot find anywhere to get another one. I have it duct taped together right now but it won’t last forever. Anyone know where to find a bellows for this saw at?

The originals aren’t made any more. Your only hope is to google “scrollsaw replacement bellows” and then click on “images” and scroll through the results, comparing the pics there to the old one. If you’re lucky then you might find one close enough to make work.

Use a cheap fish aquarium pump.
Route the hose to the arm where you need it.
Better flow at all speeds and easy to find.
