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 PS Wood Machines 21-in. saw made good enough cuts but didn't hold its own in the other areas.
