OK, I got a Bundy flute a bit back, for a very low price. And had absolutely no use at all for it. So, put it on craigslist hoping to swap for a scroll saw. I already have a nice Craftsman scroll saw that's served me for 20 years or so. But, it's out in my shop, and the cool/cold weather is playing havoc with my knees this year, so wanted a saw I could use in the spare room of my house; something that wouldn't being a major issue cleaning up the sawdust, not that I would be using it that much.
Well, craigslist came thru. This time. Guy had a 'nice' Delta 40-540 variable speed 16" scroll saw he'd used some after he first got it, then it just sat for some years. And hea wanted the flute. How sweet is that? He drove to my town even, about a mile or so from my house, and even trade. The picture is not mine, but pretty close as to condition.
OK, the scroll saw in my shop is bolted to a shelf, not a stand. The Delta will need a stand. No biggie, I can make a stand. But, is this thing going to need the stand weighted down, or what? The Craftsman does tend to vibrate a bit when I crank the speed up. But being bolted to a shelf pretty much takes care of that. So, lacking experience with a scroll saw on a stand, what do I need to do to the stand, to keep tis thing from dancing across the floor? Or is the vibration so little it's nothing to worry about?
I'm thinking a three lelgged stand, signle leg in front, two in back. It'll be short, as I'll be sitting while using it. Which reminds me, need a chair.
The last photo is my older son's living room. Nice decorating job.
