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.

good machine for the price

been very pleased with my machine for the price it is not bad I like the release level at the back top of the machine I have been using my machine with pinless spiral blades with the clamps without any problems this machine suites me for jobs intended but will in the near future look at making a few simple changes as others have said screw will be replaced in the clamps

Poor Workmanship

I purchased one of these machines and like another reviewer the pinless blade holder is of suspect quality. I have reached the situation where I cannot use pinless blades as the clamp cannot be tightened enough. Even the clamp screws are suspect as the hexagonal "Hole" into which the tightening tool fits are now rounded over. Not the quality I would expect from Jet

Not great, not horrible either.

I got this a while ago. The first thing I immediately replaced were the clamp screws for the pinless blades. I got the screws and levers from two bicycle quick release saddle collar locks and ground them and re-cut the threads to fit the machine.
I had to polish the bed and adjust it so it's orthogonal to the blade.
Speed "control" is rubbish and loses a lot of speed even under light load. But it's there.
The hold down foot is too flimsy to be useful.
The blower is anemic at best.
Vibrations and noise are reasonable.
I kind of like it, but wouldn't pay more than £80 for it.

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.
