A scroll saw blade is very small and does not last very long before becoming dull. I use mine for about an hour or less before changing them. Blades are not expensive and NOT changing them when they get dull leads to burning on the wood and the blade starts wondering and difficult to stay on the pattern line. If you find you are needing to push you wood onto the blade and it does not continue to cut really easily, it is time to replace the blade.

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.

How can I cut wood 3.5 inches thick with Dewalt Scroll saw?


nope... throat on scroll saw is of fixed height... beside, all scrollsaw blades are of fixed length, i would suggest use of bandsaw with very narrow blade with minimal kerf. do not use pressure on the blade! you will then have same cut through the thickness of the wood! setup bandsaw correctly, do not overtension it - see my other instructables pertaining to the bandsaw and regulation/setup of it

if you find my solution helpful - do not me shy... give some points... :-)

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.

Scroll saw Model 572.247200 need manual or at least what saw blade it takes??????


According to the Sears web site, your sroll saw uses the #8030 blades, which have been replaced with #5088029. These are available from any Sears store or online at the following link, see item #31 or 31A, priced at $4.00

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=+572.247200+&productCategoryId=0744440&brandId=0247&modelName=CRAFTSMAN-15-INCH-MOTORIZED-SCROLL-SAW%2FSANDER&diagramPageId=00001&documentId=00033222&pop=flush


It would appear that the owners manual for your scroll saw has been discontinued and is no longer available (Sears #405015) But the line drawing and parts list may be of some value to you, should you need to do any repairs later on.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

I need to replace the blades on a Sears Scroll saw. Model # 149236160


Your scroll saw should have come with Hex end tools to use when changing out the blade. You must release the tension on the blade (located on top of arm above blade). There is a small allen head screw which has to be loosened with an allen wrench to release the blade. There is also an allen head screw under the working surface which will have to be loosened to remove blade at the bottom. Replace blade at the bottom 1st, tighten up then go to the top, tighten it, then reset the tension and you're ready to saw again. Make sure to get a visual on the directions of the blade teeth before you remove it so you can replace the new one the same way. I hope this is helpful.

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
