condition: good
18" antique Scroll/Band Saw. This is a really cool piece of vintage machinery, in original condition. These were built by King-Seely Corp & Dunlap and then relabeled/sold by Sears in the late 1930's-1940's. This was sitting in a collectors shop for many years, before I purchased it as a cool piece of history. Now I'm cleaning out/moving stuff and sadly need to get rid of some things.

There is quite a bit of provenance & info behind these on the internet as they were desirable and still are to vintage tool collectors. Model number is 103-0407. Most of these used a 1/8 hp or 1/4hp (Some even came with a tiny 1/20hp) electric motor with a belt. I can provide an era correct motor at a reasonable cost. (The stepladder it's pictured on is not the base/is not included).

Takes a 6" Scroll saw blade. The upper bushing is made of leather and when operating it actually creates air pressure for the small brass tube to blow wood shavings away from the workpiece. Some people have modified these to work as planishing hammers for metalwork and other things. I have even seen people turn old saws & sewing machines into lamp bases and other things. They are very cool & simple.

As far as I know, everything is there minus some of the stickers that have worn off over the years. Text is preferred way of communication, but if you call and there is no answer, please leave a voicemail or I will not call back.
