At least, if you build it yourself, you absolutely know how to fix it!

Those are all great looking patterns Carl.
I actually bought the plans for Rick Hutcheson's treadle saw, I just haven't had the time to devote to it. Or a place to put it when I do make it!

Default Homemade ScrollSaw

I took a look at the foot powered scrollsaw from your post, and I saw that the story was by Wayne Leckey, My father was a freelance photographer, he did most of his work for Time, Popular Mechanics, and Popular Sceince.
I used to model for a lot of the pics in the storys that he did when I was a kid (mid 60's to Early 70's), and I had the great honor to know Mr. Leckey.
Wayne was the shop editor for Popular Mechanics, and I think he may have worked for Pop Sceince too, I used to marvel at the talent that man had, he was a real hands on person when it came to working with and testing new tools, I just wanted to say Thanks for posting that story, it brought back a flood of great childhood memories.
