Topic tags/keywords: scroll saw

My old Wilton Scroll saw bit the dust. Well it was not all that old. But the speed controller shorted out. So now I am in the market for a new scroll saw. Anyone heard anything about Masterforce tools. They are available here at Menards. It looks like a nice saw, 18” with a 2” cut. It has an accessory shaft that looks like it goes to a small router table. It’s 199.99 not on sale at the moment. Let me know if anyone has an opinion one way of the other.

Try Ryobi. I have been using a Ryobi scroll saw for over a year now and it has been great.

Lowes has a Porter-Cable 16” for $179 that is the same as the Hitachi. I have the Hitachi and it is a good saw for the money. Several Jocks here like it and you can find a review of it. The currenet PC is the same, just re-packaged.

sorry to have missed this the first time around. If it is not to late I’ll give my advise. I absoulty love my hitachi scroll saw, if the PC saw at lowes is really the same I would go with that. I did look at the masterforce saw when I got mine, if I remember it only accepts pinned blades, and I wanted to be able to have smaller entry holes. Depending on what you are using it might be ok. Good luck, let us know what you ended up with and how you like it.

Have your say...
