Default Dont know if I am in the right Area Durex 13 inch Scroll Saw

I Purchased a Durex 13 inch Scroll saw with a sander on the back and I cannot find a thing about it, It was from the Royal International Corp Durex 13 Inch Scroll Saw Model number 28 Serial number 9803 .. I have searched and the company may be out of business but that is all I can find out.. Any Ideas? Thank you .

Hey, Keith; welcome!
I can't help with the question but there's lots of regulars here who are scrollers. I'm guessing somebody's heard of it(?)...
You might want to fill out your profile, it really helps when somebody is trying to figure out how much assistance they can offer...where in the World you are for instance.

Very strange. I had posted another comment right after my first; it's not here?
Anyway, I enlarged the pic and noticed the CSA label! You're one of us Canucks!!

Keith:

A few google links com up with Canadian locations - for sale ads on Kijiji. There's also links to some old discussions on Canadian woodworking forums regarding the Durex name.

I've got an old Craftsman 13" scroll saw, model 572.286710. They're not identical, but eerily similar. Wouldn't surprise me if this is an import by Sears.

I cant believe that name. Durex is the biggest selling brand of condoms in the UK. You would have thought someone would research a name like that.

But then again, if its gone out of business maybe its bubble burst?

Hi Keith and welcome. I've moved your thread into the Scrolling sub forum. I don't have an answer for you either. Is there something specific you needed to know about your machine?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Imported from Canada?! But where was it actually made? The 'net says Durex is from India...
I think Vince made be correct about the Sears connection.
