Image Description:
The pattern shop tool shown in the illustration is manufactured by J. A. Fay & Egan Co., 145-165 W. Front St., Cincinnati, Ohio. The fact that the manufacturers designed this band scroll saw for use in shops having a considerable amount of plain or intricate scroll sawing to do, makes it especially adapted to the pattern shop where this kind of work is turned out daily. For pattern shop work, the manufacturer arranges the table with a tilting device having micrometer adjustment, which enables the operator to instantly adjust the table to any angle up to 45 degrees to the right and 10 degrees to the left. This device is said to combine quick and accurate angling of the table which will be found of great important to the pattern maker.
The most important feature in the construction of this machine is the straining device which is known as a knifeedge balance. The upper wheel is hung solely on a knife edge, and the tension on the blade is given by a compound lever arrangement. This is an excellent device for straining the blade. Its action under all conditions is instantaneous, it enables the machine to run at a high rate, with no danger of breaking the blade, no matter how fine it is.
