I have a chance to purchase an old rockwell 24" scroll saw.
I am wondering if there is any problems getting blades for an older saw.
The blade seems to be 5" with out a pin. (From Photo)
Does anyone have this saw?
Old Woodworking Machines:
has one document for a 24 inch scroll saw from Rockwell:
If this is your saw, be sure to read up on the oil needs and maintenance
It looks like any 5 inch scroll saw blade might work. Google search for
scroll saw blades.
I don't think I would try any blade less than a #5 or maybe a #3 to start
off with. There could be a problem with the blade clamp pressure with an
old scroll saw blade clamp.
Be aware, the two best blades (Flying Dutchman and Pegas) are both made to a
convenient rounded off metric size. Blade tension range on some older Delta
/ Rockwell cannot accommodate the extra length. Electrical Lineman's pliers
can snip off the extra apx. 1/8 inch and then file away the bur.
Parts drawing could (might) be at the Delta / PG / DeWalt/ etc web site:
To actually get into the technical parts drawing database area you have to
register and login. You will need the part number.
