Craftsman 24" scroll saw

I just finished restoring a craftsman 24" scroll saw. I found it for sale at a local flea market for 20 bucks and jumped on it for that price so I took it home and it sat in my shop for about 4 months before I ordered my sand blaster. After I revived my sand blaster I sand blasted the whole thing because when I found it, it was Coated in wd-40 and it was painted silver. So when I started to scrape some sawdust mixed with wd-40 I noticed it was blue under the silver so I found some pictures of its original color and repainted it match and after I scraped it I baged and tagged all the pats and started sandbladting after that I then painted and reassembled. Total amount I have into this is 24.73 with the cost of paint all that I have to buy for it yet is a original motor to match the period from witch the saw is from. Any suggestions you guys have for my next restoration project is welcomed and I would just like to find out how much it's worth and was hoping you guys could help.

Are you selling it? I'd keep it, looks awesome. And in that case, who cares how much it's worth.

In my restoration projects, they find me rather than the other way around.

I hate signatures.

Looks like you have done a great job on restoring that scroll saw, and very wise to paint it the original color too! Until a motor & blades are installed, there is no way to tell if the saw will meet its original standards, and IMO that is what will determine the value of that saw. Consider posting here again after you get it running and your input of its performance. Be safe.

Very nice. I had a similar model that ran beautifully. Unfortunately a part broke in the middle of a production run and I had to buy a replacement quick. I never got around to fixing it and sold it at a garage sale for $3 (I know...ouch). Wish I had kept it longer and tried to fix it up.
