Inspector Gadget would be proud of this scroll saw stand by Bob Calhoun.

Bob Calhoun is a good friend who lives in Australia. He frequently sends me things he has come up with for his scroll saw. Bob is one of those guys who thinks outside the box. He likes to make things and he is good at it.

Yesterday he sent me a series of pictures of his mobile scroll saw stand. This thing is packed with everything a scroller could want. This would be the perfect stand to take to demonstrations. Roll it in, set it up and within five minutes you are cutting with all the comforts of home. Before you ask, I don't have plans for this stand. I doubt Bob even used plans. This is one of those projects that you just make up as you go.


Here is the left side view. The stand has nice large wheels for easy movement to whever you want to set up shop.
In this front view you see the stand with all the accessories folded in.
The right side.
You can see in this back view that he has mounted a power strip to plug in extra accessories. This picture also shows a good view of the handle to move the stand easily.
In this picture he is starting to unfold the stand.
Here is the stand completely setup and ready for business. Notice the two foot petals. The one on the left is a mechanical lift for the upper scroll saw arm. The one on the right is a dead man's switch to start and stop the saw. I love the cut out of the foot for the lift.

The stand also has a small fan to help keep comfortable while cutting.

The plastic bucket is convenient for disposing of cut offs.
He has incorporated storage inside the stand for his mini-drill press and drilling board.
They can't get the Seyco mini-drill press in Australia so Bob made his own version. Like I said earlier Bob likes to make things and he is good at it.
He added a hanger for the drill press on the left so he could use the flexible sander attachment on the Dremel tool.
This is a lap drilling board. He says he drilled into his leg one time. He made the lap board thick enough to keep that from happening again. :) The top board is designed so it is easy to replace when it gets too many holes in it.
There is also a small fold out table on the righ. This can be used with the drill press or maybe to apply patterns to the wood.
Here you can see the thickness of the lap drilling board.

Thanks for sharing this stand Bob. I always love the things you come up with.

The IPuk earbud cable management device.

The IPod and IPad are still the hottest products on the planet. Apple has created an incredible demand for a luxury item. People who own these products love to buy accessories for them. The IPuk pattern is easy and fast to cut. Because they are cut form 1/8 inch thick wood they can easily be stack cut for extra efficiency at the saw.

The IPuk allows the user to carry earbuds in their pocket without the tangled mess.

Tips for the IPuk: Use a beautiful hardwood for this project. It's so small the cost of the wood is minimal and you want this accessories style to match the IPod. Make sure you ease all the edges. This will prevent the edge from cutting into the cable and ruining the earbud.

Watch the video below for the most effective way I have found to wrap the cable on the IPuk.

Flying Dutchman. The blades recommended by Steve Good

Why do I recommend the Flying Dutchman blades? I could say they are high quality, sharp and consistent. That would be a good reason. I could say the price per blade is great and that would be an excellent reason. Those are the reasons I buy them but I recommend them because I like doing business with Mike at Mike's Workshop. When I send a reader of the Scrollsaw Workshop to Mike he takes care of them. That makes me look good and keeps my readers coming back.
