Saw (Gray) - Information
version of the Shopsmith Scroll Saw is no longer in production or
of the features of the Gray Scroll Saw are:
cutting -- The blade is powered on both the down (cutting) and
up (return) strokes, thereby producing a constant blade tension
to deliver more positive control over the cut and prevent premature
tilt -- Lets you cut bevels up to 45-degrees in both directions
and the pressure foot can be locked at the same angle for better
changeovers -- Spring-loaded pin locks upper and lower blade
mounting blocks in position so blade changes or piercing cuts are
quick and easy. The blocks hold all standard 5" fret saw or
jigsaw blades from heavy-duty 1/4" wide down to super-fine
No. 6/0 jeweler's blades for intricate details.
guesswork -- Some manufacturers say a properly tensioned blade
should sound like "high C". Not very helpful without a
piano in the workshop. Our tensioning knob clicks as it tightens
so blades can be mounted or remounted with the exact same tension.
operator safety -- Some blade guards are awkward or obstruct
your view. We bent the blower tube to give a clear view and provide
a guard on both sides of the blade. A stream of air from the blower
tibe helps minimize distractions by blowing sawdust away from your
operation -- All scroll saws product fine duct that can irritate
your eyes and nose, and get traced around the house. That's why
we included a hookup for standard 2 1/2" dust collection hoses.
The dust port is directly below the blade so you can make virtually
any cut without a mess!
