There is a greater choice of plain end scroll saw blades – more tooth styles and narrower blades available. People with scroll saws made to use pin end blades can use these ‘more advanced’ blades if they install the Olson Scroll Saw Conversion Kit. This kit converts most 16in. scroll saws to accept both plain end blades. The kit can also convert saws made for plain end blades so that they can use pin end blades – although this is less common. In 2020 the kit was improved, the instructions were revised and we made a video to get the word out. The kit contains all hardware and hex wrenches needed for installation.
