Scroll saw accessories

I've just acquired a grey 20" scroll saw, and I have a few questions. It came with no mounting posts. I'm thinking I need the 6.5" eccentric posts, is that right? My table has pairs of holes along the back edge that look like they could receive an accessory. I'm wondering what those are fo...

Bent T-nuts on new product

I bought a fence-mounted featherboard for my 520 from Shopsmith during the recent sale. It looked great in the package and I put it in the featherboard drawer until today, when I had occasion to use it. I was perplexed to find that the T-nuts wouldn't fit into the slots on the fence or the table, st...

Re: Heads Up - Bargain 'available'

Is there anyone on this forum who has actually purchased one of these "Bargains"? I recently scooped up a bunch of Mark VII parts that were spotted here. I think this sort of forum is an important function for this community, connecting people with orphaned machines and parts, offering ad...
