I’m from the UK and this is my first post here by the way!
I’ve just started getting interested in woodworking and scrolling, so please forgive my lack of knowledge. I picked up this old rusty scroll saw at a car boot sale (yard sale?) this morning for £15 (about $23). It’s nothing special I know, and it’s just a single-speed machine, but at that price I couldn’t say no! Most importantly, it works! The blade it came with seems to be original (the coloured areas of the blade which aren’t rusted seem to match the body of the machine itself, but the blade seems WAY too deep to be a scroll saw blade?! Have I missed something? I’ll probably work on removing the rust soon, but I think it might need some work to straighten the angle at which the blade goes down, as it appears to (very slightly) go to the left at the end of the down-stroke.
I just wondered if anyone knows anything about this old scroll saw, as it has no manufacturer / model number written on it anywhere! I’ve taken a number of photos just for your reference to see if anyone can shed some light on this.
