A very good halfway houseIn an ideal world I would perhaps have liked a Hegner, but even on Ebay these are often well over £200. I read a lot of reviews about scroll saws and concluded that many of the Proxxon models strike a very good balance between cost and quality - this one is a case in point at just over £170.

Quiet, well made hefty piece of kitIn 24 hours since the saw was delivered I have got the hang of it (having never used a scroll saw before) and I have now produced some superb results. The saw is heavy and sturdy, the bones of it being metal. Only superficial coverings are plastic.

GREAT Saw, shame about the blade clamp screws...!I bought this saw on Thursday, it arrived within 24 hours...WELL DONE Axminster! The saw itself is of very sturdy, solid construction. It runs smoothly with minimum vibration, and has no noticeable blade deflection. The table is finished well and the work piece doesn't drag at all. The saw is also very quiet whilst running, and the motor runs quite cool even after 1 hour cutting 20mm pine, and the stroke rate never decreases, remaining constant throughout the cut.

High quality piece of kitDecided to go for a Proxxon scrollsaw after reading several reviews online. I'm glad I did - the build quality is excellent and it performs superbly. The instruction manual is very comprehensive and I had no problems setting the saw up. I saw that the previous reviewer complained of blades snapping, but I have had lots of use from my saw and I have not experienced this problem at all. I would definitely recommend this machine to anyone after a decent scrollsaw at a sensible price.

Decent machineHappy all round but there is a tendency for blades to suddenly snap. Really dont know why this is, but it'd be good if someone could explain
