Do a web search for "Barnes velocipede scroll saw". You should find everything you need. Those saws were/are reproduced but with aluminum parts instead of cast iron. So, maybe parts are available.

Hi Bob

It seems the pattern maker had a problem getting the patent dates correct,
and as the Barnes boys had patents for quite a few different machines,
I have listed the 3 patents most likely associated with your scroll saw.
(Dec 21, 1885 and Oct 13, 1886 do not fall on a obligatory Thursday release day)

Vintage Machinery is a great website for woodworking and machine tools:

Below is the link to W.F. & J. Barnes Co.:

Once it opens, there are individual tabs that you can click.

I used to do demonstrations with my Barnes #2 Velocipede at one time. You should find the ser.# stamped into the front of the wood top. A man in Rockford, Ill. owned the Barnes records at one time and he looked up the date of mfg. of my collection of Barnes machines. I don't have his name with me now.
