Fitted with a powerful DC motor, this variable speed (550-1,600/min) scroll saw can easily cope with cutting a wide variety of materials up to 50mm deep. The two blade arms are independently pivoted giving a straight up-and-down motion to the blade for a better quality cut. A 35mm diameter dust port allows the saw to be connected to a vacuum cleaner. A generous table (415 x 254mm) with a 406mm (16") throat, tilts to 45° for bevel cutting. The saw is supplied with five pinned end blades, but accepts pinned or plain end blades. A blower helps keep the cutting line clean and easily seen. When changing blades a quick release tension knob allows quick and easy change. The heavy cast iron base gives stability and ensures low vibration.

Blade clampsThis is my first scroll saw and i bought this one because it said it takes both pin and painless blades. As with other users I have found it is almost impossible to use the pinless blades without them continually pulling out of the clamps as you just can't clamp them tight enough. I spoke to someone at Axminster today and was basically told it's a cheap machine so it is what it is!!!!!!!. I have read a review on the trade machine and a few people have mentioned the same problem with the clamps an that they have bought hegler speed clamps. Does anyone know if I can fit them to this machine as other than this it is a nice machine to use.

Not bad for the priceI have experiences the same problems with the "rounding" the hex head screw, but using pinless blades is not a problem. Just use the top clamp for putting the blade into the internal cuts.

bad clampsI bought this machine a few months ago wish i had never seen it to fit the pin less blades is a nightmare not to bad if you are using pinned blades

Don't bother - the design is apallingI concur completely with the earlier comment (the pin-less arrangement is a nightmare) plus I have had two additional problems. The minor one is the screw that holds the 'foot' in place was so tight and so soft that when I tried to adjust it (using the correct size screwdriver) it just burred over and cannot be slackened at all.

Awful design faultOverall not a bad little machine. Pretty solidly made and runs quietly. Don't bother trying to use pinless blades - you'll drive yourself mad! External cuts using pinless blades are ok because you can make a jig and pre-fit the blade into the top and bottom clamps and then 'lasso' the bottom clamp onto it's retainer - which is COMPLETELY INACCESSIBLE . Then you just position the top clamp over it's retainer and tension up.
