SCROLL SAW TABLE INSERT

#274547 by FraudDog » Wed Sep 16, 2020 8:32 pm

I came upon an almost unused stand alone SS scroll/jig saw. It is missing the 3 inch round table insert and have had no luck trying to find one.

Anyone have one to sell? Anyone know where I can get one?

I am new to SS so I may be asking many questions in the future and I always find forums of like minded folks the best way to gain information.

Thanking everyone in advance

Welcome to the Forum.

First it is important to know if you have a Jig Saw or a Scroll Saw. There is a difference even though many people use the names as the same tool. The picture below is a Shopsmith Jig Saw. I happens to be a Greenie from 1957 that I restored. Later they were painted in the Goldie paint scheme in the early 1960's. After that they were painted gray with a black arm.

If this is what you have than the Table Insert is Part Number 502254 which is no longer available new from Shopsmith. It will have to be found used.

If you have a Scroll Saw like the one shown in the picture below or the earlier gray one (bottom picture), you will need part number 515196 which is no longer available new from Shopsmith. The newer Scroll Saws, as seen in the picture below, have a slot cut in the table and no longer have a need for an insert.

A gray Scroll Saw table is shown below and you can see the table insert it uses.

Both the Gray and Teal Scroll Saws have had versions made mounted on a stand and for Mark Mounting.

Thanks. Mine is the scroll saw as in the bottom (last) photo. So I need part 515106.

I believe they are about a 1/4" thick and could be made from hardboard. I have made some for a bandsaw from aluminum, but they were not 1/4 thick. I was luck that I had a hole saw of the correct diameter.
If you had a 3" hole saw it should be easy to make.

This is what my saw looks like:

It looks to be about 3" in diameter and a 1/4" thick. I see no problem making your own out of either hardwood, or plastic and even a good grade of plywood.

There is nothing very critical about the center opening or the path to it. I would make it slightly over sized then sand to fit.

Yup, mine is exactly like Rieble's. I guess I will try the 3 inch hole saw and some 1/4 inch plastic. Thanks everyone
