In Detail

Jet 2 Year Warranty

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.

Works fine for me!

I was worried by other reviews complaining about fitting plain end blades. I have had no such trouble. The handy T bar allen key fits easily to both top and bottom clamps. The tension release lever is quick and works well. It is all easier if you use a small block of wood to insert between the top arm and the case, to hold the top arm in position whilst you clamp the blade top. Very happy with it.

Blade clamps

This 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 price

I 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 clamps

I 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
the blade clamps are useless i have had to have a new set already the screw to fasten the blades use it with the allen wrench supplied makes the head of the screw
head round making it so you can not use it i have also had to have a new switch all in all i think it is a very bad design of the clamps what a waist off money

Don't bother - the design is apalling

I 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.

More seriously, the part that the lower end of the blade fits onto is out of alignment with the result that the blade is not vertical. This is most noticeable when using the pin-less set up as the attachment point is further away than with pinned blades. There is no possibility of adjusting this without taking the machine apart as the retaining screw head is not accessible.

I've rated the value as one star because if it can't be used then there's no point in buying it, likewise quality.

Features get three stars since I do like the variable speed (I initially wanted it to cut thin brass) and the ability (or not) to use both pinned and pin-less blades for internal work would have been very helpful had it worked.

I'm very, very disappointed and the machine will be going back to the store for a refund in two days time - don't buy one!
