    whats the differnce

    between a jig saw, scrool saw and sabre saw..? now the sabre saw is a old description of a tool and so that will be hard to find anyone that has heard that term.. now for the next question, is this saw used that much ? i got asked if i wanted one its a old rockwell with a 12"square table that appears to have a 1.5" cuttin depth. it now has a 1/4" bladde in it with 6 TPI.. this saw is a cast iron version.. whats a fair price for this saw it has approximatly a 16" to 18" throat.

    jig saw/sabre saw= same thing
    scroll saw has the blade held on both ends.
    the old rockwell should say delta/rockwell on the badge?
    the old delta i used to own was much better for marquetry than the modern saws because the blade traveled straight up-n-down instead of in an arc like the newer saws do.
    price? 150-300 depending.

    Jig saw and saber saw are the same and hand held. I've also heard it called a bayonet saw. I've seen them mounted under a table.

    You can see one right here Larry & you don't have to be to old to recognize all those names & the tools they represent. About the only difference in how it looks is the thoat & there may be a slight size difference but I am not sure about this.

    Larry, how come you put this thread under "General Woodturning Q&A" and not "Old Iron" or General Woodworking Q&A"?

    I am starting to think of some sinister reason, like you have woodturning on the mind or something. You are starting to worry me.

    Larry I have an old King Sealy that was built in 1929. It'll scroll up to 2" thick and has a 24" depth. I use mine quite often to make tight cuts so I don't have to change the blade in my band saw. I think I paid $50 for it.

    It take 8" blades which are not standard for a modern scroll saw so I use coping saw blades.
    I would offer em$50 and see if they bite.
