In this project I make a scroll saw from scratch. The saw was built using fairly common tools and it has a steel frame which is a bit of an overkill.
I used a motor from an electric lawn mover to power the saw. The motor is very fast and I'm estimating it to be around 3500rpm and I'm guessing it's around 3/4 HP.
I felt that this was a pretty complex build so I added the voice - over. English isn't my native language so this takes quite some time.
I decided to leave all of my mistakes or things that I had to change so you could see my thought process on building the scroll saw.
I don't have any plans for this nor have I used any plans when building it. I basically freestyled and made decisions on fly which is why I had to change so many things.
The saw can use regular scroll saw blade, hacksaw blades, bandsaw blades... I'm planning on making an attachment to hold files so I can use it as a die filer or a filling machine.
I still need to design motor and mechanism covers as the saw dust can get to them.
