Default RE: Tools for the model shop - bandsaw/jigsaw/scroll saw?

Got news for you!!! the tool on the left is a recent invention. the one the right is just a modern version of the old time JIG saws. we had jig saws way back in the 1930's, powered by a dicarded electric washing machine motor, long before the hand held version was ever thought of. you couldn't beat it for cutting out puzzles, ie thats where the name came from. also most where made in the basement by the owner. words vs words. dick stamm
