Scrollsawing Tips

For quick-draw blade retrieval, try this scrollsaw bandolier

Most hot-shot scrollsawyers don't waste time changing blades. And this storage strip puts the blades close at hand, yet secure and out of the way.

To make one, head for a sewing-supply store and pick up a strip of 1" hook-and-loop tape. Adhere about 18" of this to the side of your scrollsaw or scrollsaw table with epoxy. Then, epoxy strips of the mating material to the sides of your blade containers as shown at left. Now, press the containers up against the hook-and-loop strip on the scrollsaw for storage and fast retrieval. If you don't have any tubes to store your blades in, you can make some from PVC pipe that you buy at the hardware store.
