Editor's Review: Choosing and Using a Scroll Saw

by Paul Schürch

review date: June 1, 2005

With the average woodworker in mind, the author tested five midrange scroll saws with throat depths between 18 in. and 22 in. He put the machines through a variety of tasks, and all made acceptable cuts. The author evaluated the saws in four areas: ease of tensioning and changing the blade, ability to change speeds quickly, stroke length (longer is better), and stability of the table and upper arm. The Grizzly, by far the least expensive model tested, gave a lackluster performance in most areas.

Horrible tool,can't be more disappointed with a tool than this piece of junk,I bought it because I don't do a lot of scroll work in my trade but occasionally the need does arise so I couldn't justify spending 600 dollars for something I rarely use.BUT if I had a chance to use this machine before buying I Definitely would have gone with another.first off the vibration this thing does is really bad,the hold down clamp is a joke,blade changes are ok but it only takes pinned type blades,there is ALOT of side to side play on the upper arm so getting a 90 degree cut is normal breathing removes more dust than the your money and buy something better sadly I have seen better quality scroll saws from harbor freight for cheaper.truly disgusted with this tool.
