Scroll Saw Auxiliary Table
"Table Diagram Most of the work I do on my scroll saw involves fine cuts on small pieces.
So itís very important for the workpiece to slide easily across the table.
The problem is most scroll saw tables arenít very smooth.
Iíve tried waxing the table and found that the wax wears off pretty quickly and leaves a residue on my projects.
To solve the problem, I made a smooth-sliding auxiliary top out of a piece of Plexiglas, as in the drawing above.
The Plexiglas is the same size as the saw table and has a hole only a bit larger than the blade to provide more workpiece support.
I attached it with spray adhesive."
I did put it on my top plate and it works great but I didn't use glue (spray adhesive ) I used double sided carpet tape because I know it in time I will need to replace it with a new one, I used 1/8" clear plastic and drilled a 1/4" hole for the blade and the blade did make a small slot to run in like a guide, in the plastic that should help with blade bend.(tracking)
It should save the metal top from getting small scratches and to keep the resale up,just never know if I want to get a new one and sell the Dewalt.
But it's sure slick and works great for small parts
