In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

A cast iron base and cast iron table are two essential ingredients for many woodworking machines, particularly those with a reciprocating mechanism where the weight of the cast iron can help to minimise vibration. Powered by a 90W motor and with a capacity of 50mm under the guide (a realistic depth of cut would be 20mm with the right blade), the Axminster Hobby AWFS16 scroll saw has a 400mm(16") throat, with a table which tilts over to a full 0-45°. The two blade arms are independently pivoted which gives a straight up-and-down motion to the blade and a better quality of cut. A small blower tube is positioned alongside the blade; this keeps the work area clear of dust and gives a clear view of the cutline. This machine accepts pinned blades, which can be placed in the machine either in line or at 90° if cutting longer lengths of material. For fine work, unpinned blades can also be used. A compact and neat design to suit most hobby users. Supplied with a pack of assorted Pegas, Swiss made blades, blower nozzle, eye guards and service tools. A wide range of either pinned or unpinned blades is available.

My first scroll saw

Very happy with the price of this bit of kit and comes with the usual Axminster quality. Personally I prefer the pin end blades but you are limited to what size blades you can use. The finer blades for more intricate work are all flat/plain end. On this particular model it is a real pain to use these blades due to the blade holders. Many other scroll saws have a quick release method which is so simple I really don't know why the Axminster one doesn't copy it. I would happily pay for a bolt on accessory if they sold one. Otherwise I am very happy with this saw. I have already made some very cool stuff and am sure it will get tonnes of use

Top value for money.

I can't fault this saw at all, very quiet and almost vibration free. Very pleased and it's top value for the money.

Scroll saw AWF16

The first scroll arrived the following day. No problem there then, BUT, on starting up the saw it sounded if a bag of nails were attached to the underside.
On inspection, the lower articulated arm was hitting the underside of the cast iron table.
I phone up customer services and a replacement was sent the following day. The second machine arrived, unpacked and the table could not be aligned up square with the fretsaw blade, the hole did not line up with the curved/angle setter on the cast iron table. Also the table top edges were like a knife blade, they had not been filed.
So, another machine was sent and this time the machine started ok. Third time lucky!

PLEASE NOTE, this moan has nothing to do with the excellent service that I received from the customer service guys, I see the problem is the “quality control” or lack of it before one receives the goods.
This is why I scored a low star rating.

great buy

I bought this saw a few weeks ago after reading loads of reviews, I was going to buy the variable speed one but because it was out of stock I went with this one and after using it I was glad that I bought this one.
It's very easy to use no vibration and quiet.
