Beach scroll saw & foot powered saws 0135

NO. 1 BEACH SCROLL SAW.The Beach Co. have for many years made a specialty of Scroll Sawing machines, and their machines are probably better known than any other. There are over ten thousand of them in use (nearly as many as all other makes put together). We have never heard a criticism or complaint. It has many points of superiority which go to make it the most easily handled machine in the market. This machine when running can be stopped, changed from a long to a short saw, and started again in less than ten seconds. Each machine has a plate 8 inches in diam. let into the bed around the saw to prevent wearing hollowing. The Friction Pulley and Combination Brake is a desirable feature, by which the saw is made to start and stop instantly by a single movement of the foot, without shifting the belt. A strong, self-acting steel clamp holds lower end of saw, and broken saws can be used without drilling or punching holes through them.
One simple and useful feature is the Air Pump, which keeps the saw clear from saw dust, and enables the operator to see just what he is doing. The bed is 38x40 in., crank shaft 1-146 diam., running in 31 in. bearings with pulley between them. A complete set of Saws, Filed and Set, ready for use, are sent with each machine. Every machine is set up and run at the shop before shipping, so that there is no danger of customers getting faulty machines.

No. 2 machine, $86.00 ; this is exactly the same as the No. 1 machine, but with Stationary Table; weight, 450 lbs.
