All,

I’ve got a buddy in Uganda. She is looking for a small scroll saw. Because of her location, she needs it to be ran off of 220v.

She has a friend that is bringing a lot of stuff at the end of the month from the states. This scroll saw would be one of those items.

You guys know of any options for one of those all in one units that can be run off of 220?

Aren’t most European households run on 220? I would think the European market would be the place to look.

Yeah, I saw that one. $1200 is exponentially more than I can swing. Hoping for something in sub $300 range.

Hmm… maybe she could use a manual saw like a chevalet that needs no power? Expensive to buy, but it could be made fairly cheap.

Interesting, Tony. This might be the cheapest route.

Does it need to be new or particularly lightweight? Old iron (which you already know plenty about) could have a belt drive motor that likely would take 120V or 240V.

Check out amazon UK scrall saws.

However, not all of them will ship internationally…
I am using one with step down transformer…

Yeah, you know me. Old and heavy is always where my mind goes. But this is being muled in luggage.
