Recently I obtained a 26" Boice Crane scroll saw that appears to be in
well maintained condition. An internet search shows that BC went out
of business in the mid 80's. Included with the saw is manual and (and
its envelope, postmarked Dec 82). The manual shows it can be used with
a file chuck to quick shape corners, etc., plus it says it can be used
for cutting metals.
I have not cut anything with it yet but it runs smooth without a blade
and delivers air through the dust blower.
Does anyone have experience with these scroll saws? Anyone still using
theirs? Also, do you know of any good parts suppliers if it ever
Thanks in advance for your comments.
