I recently acquired a used scroll saw and am looking for information regarding manual, parts, etc. I have not had any success searching the internet.

The saw is model MS-22 and has “Light Industrial Tools – Taiwan” on the plate. It also has a decal “Master Machinery” on the base. The date of manufacture indicates 1988 – 2.

It is 1/8 Hp – 2.2 Amp – RPM 1720. It works very well, although I haven’t used it to any great extent yet. just made a couple of puzzles for one of the grandkids.

Anyone know anything about this saw, or where I might get information on it? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I have a similar saw – model MS-26 which I assume is a longer reach. Otherwise the same specs as you listed. Mine is also made in 1988.

This is the first scroll saw I’ve ever used, and it seems to vibrate excessively. I’m also breaking a lot of blades. I wish it had a slower speed.

I think your model is now distributed by Grizzly –

My saw has a longer arm, so it has a U-shaped guide that attaches to the end of the auxiliary arm. I don’t know if this is the original design or was added later. I paid $60 for my saw.

I also found reference to this saw in “Scroll Saw Workshop Bench Reference” by Zachary Taylor. Got my copy at the local library.

Do you still like your saw? Mine scares me a bit – I think it may be overkill for my needs.

I have the 1988 MS 26 from National Industrial Tools. Blade breakage was a problem until I learned how to properly tension and re-tension the blade.
Not happy with the blade clamps but this saw will accept pinned blades. Which work well

Have your say...
