Default What's In a Scroll Sawers Toolbox?

Since I am building a tool chest for the spouse's new scroll saw hobby I wonder what a dedicated scroller keeps in their tool box? Please let me know what things one would fill this with. Thanks!

1. Lotz of blades
2. Honing stone to round the back of blades
3. Assortment of drill bits
4. Spray on glue
5. Sanding and filing profiles
6. Double stick and clear packing tapes
7. Good pair of scissors


Just a few, I'll leave room for others to add.

That's great Bob, keep em coming! I have the honing stone, and lots of blades. Even ordered some of those Flying Dutchman blades for Xmas. The spouse bought some special small drill bits from Lee Valley. I ordered the small drill chuck from Mike as well.
Sanding and filing profiles? What am I looking for there?

Sorry for my poor teminology Deb.

Needle files

Buy Precision Needle Files at Woodcraft.com

Sanding contours and sticks

Sanding Stick Kits - Woodcraft.com

Contour Sanding Pads - Woodcraft.com

This will let you get in those odd and small spaces to get the burrs off.

Hope this helps

Another item would be a good Xacto knife set with various blades.

pin vise, small xacto knife (good for scoring plywood veneer to keep it from tearing out),
superglue for when tearout happens, carbon paper....

Some nice thin hardwood would be handy as well

Thanks Doug! I had never heard of a pin vise before. Is it spring loaded or do you just twist by hand? I have a small exacto knife set in the shop, even has a miniature plane. Maybe the spouse needs a personal one.
Carbon paper added to the list!
Hardwood I can get, bigger pieces, and cut some smaller ones off, keep the good parts for me..LOL.

Pin vises are manual, you twist them by hand. I think they give you a lot more control for little holes than having a bit chucked up in the drill.

There are cheap ones for a couple of bucks, or you can buy a starrett for about $20

Congrats Duane! I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I have tried the spouses out a couple of times. It's pretty slick!
