Nearly everything you could ask for in a scroll saw

Nearly everything you could ask for in a scroll saw

04-26-2012 02:11 PM by wbrisett | 5 comments »

I have a shop full of tools; bandsaw, planer, joiner, table saw, drill press, and scroll saw. One of the things I’ve loved doing over the past eight years or so is making things on the scroll saw. After initially buying a Craftsman scroll saw and putting it to use, I saw a need for a better saw. I found a great deal on a used PS Wood 21-in scroll saw that I used for the past seven years. However, recently I was making some gifts that required me to do some very delicate fret-type work. ...

Scheppach Deco-Flex - a decent starter scrollsaw for an OK price

Scheppach Deco-Flex - a decent starter scrollsaw for an OK price

05-31-2013 05:57 AM by Skiedra | 5 comments »

+ nice working capabilities+ normal operating noise+ large “throat” depth+ takes both pin and pinless blades+ the addons and the rotary tool is a perfect addition to a beginner scrollsawer. So you do not need to buy a dremel or any similar rotary tool - bit painful process to change the blades. You have to rotate 3 screws, 2 on top, 1 at the bottom of the saw.- you seriously need to bold it down, otherwise it moves- attached rotating bit are a bit too “toyish”, but does some light sanding/...

good saw great price

good saw great price

Less than a month ago I started into scrolling with an ancient Delta saw I got at a yard sale for $5.00. It only took me about a day to discover 2 things. first I was facinated with scrolling and second I would need a better saw if I was to really do any serious work. So I started researching saws. I found this King Canada saw at a local tool store for $120.00 CAD. I have never been happier. It doesn’t have all the features that a much more expensive saw would have and I had to do a lit...

Craftsman 16 inch Scroll Saw Review

Craftsman 16 inch Scroll Saw Review

For my birthday recently my wife purchased me a scroll saw. (That’s right fella’s she’s all mine) Having never owned a scroll saw, and quickly realizing that I’m a novice to this tool; I’ll do my best to give an honest review of this tool. But… Before I can start I have to give a little insight to my scroll saw bias’. I’ve been doing the “woodworking thing”, for a few years now and I’ve always thought I had all of the tools that I needed. I also have always had two opinions when it c...

Task force scroll saw review

Task force scroll saw review

03-21-2009 02:29 AM by kosta | 3 comments »

This scroll saw is a very nice saw for $100 and is worth the money. The first thing you have to do is tape up the led light and remove the guard because you cant do interior cuts and it gets in the way. The saw also has a blower and a vaccum port help collect the dust it uses a tool to change the blade which is a pain in the ass but other than that it is a nice saw with a lot of features that would see on a more expensive saw. It doesnt have a foot switch but has a varible speed and the light...

Blade Alignment (front to back)

Blade Alignment (front to back)

06-06-2011 11:08 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

After having this saw for about 9 months, and using the heck out of it, I have noticed that the blade is not at 90- degrees – front to back. That means is is leaning back about 1/32 of an inch on the top side vs. the bottom (at the table). This was most noticable yesterday when cutting a 3-D compound cut and the cutouts were different size one side vs. the other. Now the almost useless product manual is of not help with this problem and previous attempts with Porter Cable have also been...

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

My wife has been interested in woodworking for awhile, but didn’t want to mess with the “big machines,” but was interested in scroll sawing. The DeWalt and Hawk units were too expensive for a “trial” period, so we looked for a moderately-priced unit. Reading the great reviews on LJ led us to take a chance on the P-C PCB370SS. Fortunately, we were lucky and got a good one. It does a great job with a little vibration and I agree the dust removal and attached...

Delta Q3 40-650 Scroll Saw

Delta Q3 40-650 Scroll Saw

01-30-2011 06:51 AM by gbrown4 | 2 comments »

I recently acquired this Q3 scroll saw from Craig’s list. I was able to barter for it, amazon.com gift card trade. The seller acquired it from her father who recently passed away. The seller had no clue what it was so she was eager to trade for it. First off I notice it was missing the off/on switch and knob. It was rusty and dirty. I found a switch for $2.50 and replace the bent screws on the quick set blade clamp both upper and lower. I cleaned up the surface rust and wiped eve...

Delta Q3 40-650

Delta Q3 40-650

01-16-2018 01:42 PM by tomvette | 2 comments »

For comparison, I own the Delta Q3 40-650 and an RBI Hawk 220-3, both great saws. The Hawk is a 3 speed saw (via belt pulley change) featuring parallel arms, and aluminum construction. The Delta Q3/40-650 is a variable speed saw leveraging a graphite C arm on a 90 pound chassis. The Delta has minimal vibration, likely the result of the low moving mass of the C arm coupled with the heavy chassis. The cutting speed is fast and “buttery” due to the non parallel C arm design....
