scroll saw


GOT A CRAFTSMAN 16 INCH SCROLL SAW LAST YEAR FOR CHRISTMAS. I HAVE USED IT ABOUT 10 TIMES. BASICLY BRAND NEW. AFTER NOT USING IT FOR A FEW DAYS I WENT BACK ANS TRIED TO USE IT BUT NOTHING HAPPENED. I TOOK OUT THE BLADE AND IT KINDA WORKED. REPLACED WITH A NEW BLADE AND IT WORKED BUT WAS REALLY SHAKING A LOT. MORE THAT NORMAL. I WORKED WITH THE TENSION ON THE BLADE ANS STILL NOTHING I AM AT A TOTAL LOSS. THE LIGHT STILL WORK AND SOME TIMES IT SOUNDS LIKE THE MOTOR WANTS TO KICK IN BUT IT DOESN'T. NOW I DON;T HEAR THE MOTOR TRY AND KICK ON. SORRY FOR ALL CAPS I REALIZED IT WAS ON HALF WAY THROUGH THE MESSAGE.

scroll saw


The vibration in a scrollsaw is often/usually attributed to an improperly positioned blade. Try re-mounting the blade and see if that helps. Many scrollsaws also have lubrication points on the mechanism as well, so you should check the owners manual to see if that's the case with yours. If it is a variable speed saw, turn the RPM up a little bit instead of starting it on the lower setting. The motor might be sluggish at first if it goes unused for long periods of time...My Delta does that but smooths right out as the RPMs are increased.
