My 1950s Hobbies treadle fretsaw remade needs a new home. Answered
I recently obtained a rather more modern electric scroll saw at a bargain price and as space is at a premium in my little workshop my 1950s Hobbies saw is looking for a new home.
I have considered offering in on one of the several the freegle groups I am a volunteer moderator of but as the Instructables community is close to my heart & I believe that there is almost certainly a maker out there eccentric enough to find it interesting to use I thought I would try to find it a home here first.
It has obviously seen better days & isn't really up to fine limit work but I have had some fun using it & it is more than up to the job of roughing out work.
I live in Hertfordshire England & as this thing isn't exactly a lightweight I really dont want to go to the hassle of trying to pack it for shipping so ideally it needs a home fairly close by, I dont have transport at the moment so whoever wants it would have to collect it themselves.
If anyone is interested please dont be shy, let me know ASAP as I really dont relish the idea of it languishing at the back of my shed.
It's going free so take the opportunity to give a loving home to a bit of maker history.
All the best.
