Great Britain, residing at Chicago, in the county of Cook
and State of Illinois, have invented certain new and useful
Improvements in Scroll-Saws, of which the following is a specification.
This invention relates to improvements in that class of saws
used for cutting out intricate patterns in boards or planks
for ornaments, coping, and the like or for doing other curved
or irregular work; and it consists in certain peculiarities
of the construction, novel arrangement, and operation of the
various parts thereof, as will be hereinafter more fully set
forth and specifically claimed.
The objects of my invention are, first, to provide a scroll-saw
which shall be simple and inexpensive in construction, strong,
durable, and effective in operation; second, such a saw which

In order to enable others skilled in the art to which my invention
pertains to make and use the same, I will now proceed to describe

sectional view, taken on line 2 2 of Fig. 1, showing the frame
and its casing and the endless cable or cord for operating
or changing the position of the saw. Fig. 3 is an enlarged
cross-sectional view, taken on line 3 3 of Fig. 1, looking
in the direction indicated by the arrows. Fig. 4 is a perpective
view of a portion of the saw-blade and a part of one of the
stub-shafts therefore, and Fig. 5 is a similar view of the
endless cable detached.
