In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This 535mm(21") scroll saw is the mid sized model from a range of three with some really different features not found on any other machine. It is constructed mainly from plate steel including a 7mm heavy gauge steel table with an epoxy painted surface. Two unique features make this machine stand out from any other. Firstly, the blade actuating arms are very short, driven by a lever and rod mechanism. This gives very high control of the blade plus exceptionally low vibration. Secondly, the whole arm assembly tilts 45° from the vertical right and 35° left, leaving the table horizontal. This allows much better control of the work, due to greater visibility and being able to work at a natural position. You are not fighting gravity or bending your wrists into awkward positions. This machine is not short of other features, having a variable speed control system giving from 400-1,500 strokes per minute. Upgraded with the PEGAS "Blade Chuck" blade clamps which are much lighter, reducing vibration which reduces stress on the machine. Blade changing is easy and tool free, with two hand clamps and a quick release lever. An air blower and work hold down are provided. Plus there is efficient dust collection when connected to a suitable fine dust extractor. You are recommended to permanently mount the machine onto your workbench or to one of the dedicated stands available as an option. Using unpinned blades means there is a large selection of blades available or you can use 150mm lengths of 1/4" bandsaw blade, ideal for cutting thicker materials. Supplied with an assortment pack of Swiss made PEGAS blades. This is a serious machine for craft or joinery work, not the same as any other.

Brill machine ... in fact ,,, awesome machine ... only nasty point is the fact of the tables finish ... the finish was coming off after just a few hours cutting my first clock and now have done maybe 60 hours cutting and the table looks like it is maybe 5 years or more old ... terrible finish on the table but otherwise this is a saw worth buying.

Better than expected

Having read a great number of reviews on different makes and models I decided the EX-21 was the machine for me. That decision was made on points I had read, build quality, power, quiet as a mouse, this is the Rolls Royce of scroll saws. Axminster service is also a top performance, I was emailed to tell me the product was in stock and it was delivered the next day.

Fantastic machine

I only received my EX21 today, but have already cut a silhouette of my German Shepherd with the supplied, and fitted, blade. Previously had a cheap vibrating machine so could hardly cut anything presentable. The speed control, Dust extraction, lifting top arm, almost zero force blade clamps, single arm tensioning, are all excellent features. So I am more confident now of that elusive collapsing bowl ! I was planning to buy one in the new year but the price now is too good to miss, so if you are thinking of this type of scroll saw, this price range, then just buy one of these with complete confidence. It is exactly as described, which a rare thing theses days.

Spot on when it works!

After much looking round to see what was the best bang for buck was this saw keeped coming up as the top so I thort I'd give it a go to take my small cutting bissness to the next level. First one to come was dead on arrival and had to go back so arranged a swop same day in store,did this and got back with what was the best bit of kit IV had in a long time little to no vibration and low noise my work out put increase and I was happy. 7 days later in the middle of a cut bang starts rattling and as there tec guy said on phone "sounds like a bag of nails" send it in for repair so in 7 days that's two dead saws and now my bissness is down for god nos how long now as they can't give me an ETA on time to fix or when I'll get it back, in short the saw is great when it works but if you need it for a reliable work horse look else were. I don't no but may have something to do with the fact they are not an Excalibur anymore but an ex 21 with less QC involved. Hope to get it back soon and up and running will update review when I do.
