SOURCE: saw blade broke. motor won't run after changing

It would have cost more to have Sears fix the saw than I paid for it, so I got my meter out and by checking the voltage drops across all of the electrical connections in the saw , I determined that the on / off switch was defective. This switch is the same switch used to turn the lite on and off, so I took the switch out of the lite and used it in the saw. I ordered a new switch for the lite and will install it when the new one comes. Thanks for your interest and help. fletcher1

SOURCE: How to change the blade on a craftsman scroll saw?

You might be able to find the manual on the Sears site (this can be a frustrating search - but start with the model number). But even without the manual, this is pretty easy on most scroll saws. There is usually a plastic knob (about the size of a ketchup bottle lid) on top of the machine at the back. You loosen this knob a couple of turns (to the left) and the blade will become very loose. The blade is probably the "pin-end" type - it will have a little cylinder about a 1/4 inch long on each end of the blade. You can buy new blades at any home improvement or hardware store. Besides qualtiy, the main differences will be the length of the blade and the size of the teeth (expressed as TPI or Teeth Per Inch). You need more TPI for cutting harder and thinnner materials, less TPI for softer and thicker material. Put the new blade in like the old one was (teeth pointing down) and tighten the plastic knob. It's hard to be sure how tight is should be, since it doesn't suddenly tighten up. About a 1/4 turn past where is starts to get noticeably tighter is a reasonable place to start. If the blade pops off during use, it wasn't tight enough.

How do I change a saw blade on a scroll saw


Which Scroll Saw are you using...there are multiple brands and multiple models. Help us out and tell us which one you have.

Most of the time there is a clamping mechanism that holds the top of the blade in place. Many models have a door or some access point to the lower end of the blade, too, which you'll have to get to as well.

You'll also usually find that there is some type of blade tension device that needs to be released and then reset before you can install and use a new blade. Make sure the new blade is the same length as the old one, also, make sure that it's the same type of blade, some have a small pin top and bottom, some do not.

Finally, check out YouTube and see if anyone has put up a video for your brand of Scroll Saw. May be the answer.

Good luck and be safe.

I have borrowed a Makita SJ401 scroll saw. How do


Scroll saws generally have to be loosened in two spots. One spot is above the blade near the tip of the arm. The other is generally below the plate. Most scroll saws come with a special tool that has an allen wrench type end accompanied by a round peg that is inserted just above or below the spot for the allen wrench.This peg type end helps to hold the tool in place and keeps the saw arm from moving around. The other end of the tool has a handle.
Hope this helps.

I bought a delta scroll saw model number 40-540, the blade was broken. I need to know how to change the blade and what type of blade the saw takes. Thank you


your delta scroll saw has two blade attachment points one under the table and one in the arm. attach under the table first and then in the arm. that way you can be sure to adjust the tension properly.

there are only two styles of scroll saw blade, those with pins and straight blades without pins

look carefully at your saw and you will be able to see which type holder you have
