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.

Why do i have excessive vibration /broken blades with a sears scroll saw


You have poor quality blades (try Olsen blades), or
You're forcing the work past the blade (just "offer" the work to the blade, let it cut, don't force it to cut), or
Your tension is too high, or
Your tension is too low, or
Your blades are getting installed upside-down (teeth point DOWN).

How to change the blade on a craftsman scroll saw? The manual was been misplaced when we moved


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.

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 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
