Default New saw/old style

I've got a line on a Craftsman #09 28693 scroll saw for $40 and one of the same, brand new and still in the box for $100. The first one looks well used but heavy duty construction. All cast metal and no plastic. Kind of like they used to make things. Can anybody give me any info on this saw? I can't see anything on line about it. I kind of have a thing for old stuff. Thanks in advance.

I'd say, just make sure you can use strength blades and don't have to use pin blades

Gil, I agree with Okie. If it does not use pinless blades pass it by. Also double check that model #. I do not find any such model in the Sears data base.

Thanks guys. The model number is the same on both units and they are owned by 2 different people so it's must be correct but I will check out the blades. I didn't know that pinless was the better blade design. Thanks a lot. Cheers

I don't know if this is going to copy but here it is. It takes 5" plain and pinned blades.

Hey for $40 you really have nothing to loose. BTW I see your pic but I checked the SEARS/CRAFTSMAN site and that model number does not come up...Strange.

If this saw takes both types of blades, pinned and pinless, is that okay? I've never owned a scroll saw before hence my ignorance. I've only used a band saw.

The number on the box is a stock number the model number for parts is located on the tool usually on the motor plate or near it. For $40 you really can't go wrong just keep in mind that it will have more vibration than a high end saw but with some carpet padding and bolting it to a heavy bench you can eliminate a lot of vibration.

Pinless blades are what most saws use you can do a lot more detail with the pin blades you have to drill a larger hole to pass the blade through, some patterns this is okay but nothing too detailed.
