VINTAGE DREMEL MOTO-SHOP SCROLL, JIG SAW - MODEL 57-2


Another tool for my new wood shop...VINTAGE DREMEL MOTO-SHOP SCROLL, JIG SAW - MODEL 57-2. I acquired this piece off of Ebay for $19.99! Works great according to the seller but does have a dent on the back. The seller said it does not affect the performance of the tool! I can probably straighten it out. Nice deal! :)

It has a spot to mount a sanding disc on the side. I just aquired one myself. Your blog is great!

I just acquired one of these saws. Found it in a thrift shop for $9.00.
Don't seem to be smart enough to figure out how to remove the blade. Company does not have manuals anymore. Can someone give me instructions for removing the blade?
Thanks, in advance.

I just found this site where you can get a free copy of the Dremel Scroll Saw 571 & 572. Hope it helps.

The blade is removed and replaced by pushing down on the upper Clevis attachment. As you push down, the blade will loosen and you can remove the lower end from the lower Clevis. BE SURE you install the blade with the teeth pointing down since the power stroke is during the downward cycle and if reversed, the blade will lift the work up versus holding it down.
I have had mine for about 20 years and it still works fine.

Wow,

That takes me way back to my childhood days. Dad had bought me one, must have been in the late sixties. I still have it. It came with all the accessories and a set of moto woodworking plans and drawings.
Man, I sawed up a storm.

You can buy Blades for the Dremel Moto-Shop Scroll, Jig Saw - Model 57-2 at Sears. I just bought some in October 2011.

Ludwig
Is SEARS an internet shop? Where can I buy blades in Europe/internetshop?

I have one that I found in my father's workshop - but no manual and can't figure out how to restore it. If I had access to a manual with a schematic of the parts, I could probably get it up and running again.

I found a 57608-4 a few years ago at the dump. It was rusted up & looking very sad. I took it home, took it apart, cleaned it up, gave it a coat of charcoal paint & not it looks & works great. I must admit the blades are hard to find. That's why I brought a couple of packets when I found them. They are Dremel 8029 1v2 Fine & 8030 2v2 Course blades. Pack of 5 blades. I kept the packet. It's a great little machine.

I found a dremel moto-shop model 571-5 scroll saw on craigs list for 25 bucks, works great but blades keep breaking...any idea as to why?

Broken Blades...check for rust in the blade movement. Mine had the same problem and I took some sandpaper and cleaned up the rust and then sprayed some WD40...it solved the problem. The rust was putting strain on the blade by creating fairly intense vibration. Hope this helps you out! Cheers!

I just pulled out my Dremel-572 from storage after25 year, dusted it off and it works great. I have lots of parts in the original packages. Does anyone know where to get additional accessories like sanding disks?
thanks

I just bought blades and "feet" at sears parts - looks like they have the sanding pad as well.

Here in the Netherlands the machine was sold as Model 57607-4 but I assume it is identical to 57-2. Does anybiody know if this is correct?
Saw blades not available on the market anymore.
