A very good halfway house

In 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.
I have to say right at the beginning that I am new to this kind of saw work so anything that I say must be read in that light. So -
- It is good and solid.
-It seems well engineered.
- So far I have not had any problems with the quality of the blade holding allen screws as other reviews have reported.
- At the higher speed it does dance around a little.
- I don't much care for the flimsy dust extraction pipe and have removed it - likewise the clear plastic 'guard' . It seems that this is put in place to satisfy those who would try to save us from ourselves but in reality in makes things more dangerous as it impedes your view of the work.
- The blades that come with it are something of a token. It really is worth spending money on top class blades such as Olsons.
- It is worth taking the time to set the saw up properly and ensure that the blade runs at right angles to the table both fore and aft and side to side
I would also want to say that the temptation with any good new tool is to make you think that it is the instant answer to all your problems - and so it may prove to be. However, in the few hours that I have been using this saw I have found out that there is no substitute for practice.
All in all a good piece of kit that I would recommend to anyone.

Quiet, well made hefty piece of kit

In 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.
I struggled with the accompanying blades, snapped loads and i just couldn't not follow the line!! However I decided to try one of my fret saw blades and this seemed to work for me.
One downside as mentioned by a previous reviewer: The tightening bolts are a bit soft, and the tool is a bit small. Result: rounding of the bolt head. This is not really acceptable on a tool like this where blade changes are frequent and part of the design. Dear Axminster, if I was you I would either provide some better bolts or a better fitting tool, or preferably both.

Despite the rounding off of the head I am quite thrilled with my new saw, and already I am thinking of all the awesome stuff I can make.

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.

OVERALL, this is a GREAT saw & perfect for anyone wanting a decent quality saw at a good price. The ONLY negative I could mention is that the blade clamp screws seem to be made of slightly soft metal, and one of mine rounded out on the first day. HOWEVER, these are a standard size machine screw and I managed to get a good stock of spares from a local hardware shop. If you decide to buy this saw, just order a couple of spare screws at the same time....but really, this saw is GREAT!!

High quality piece of kit

Decided 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 machine

Happy 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
