I picked-up this 24" Craftsman Scroll Saw from and ad on Facebook. The guy wanted $40 but settled for $30. It turned out that this guy was actually advertising for his little retail "junk store" in Davenport, Iowa. The photo showing this tool with the exposed brass, 120 volt terminals on the motor caught my eye. In addition, the price was pretty enticing. Plans are to sandblast, paint, refurbish and return this unit to a pristine condition -- but install a newer, safer motor for use in my shop.
