This 16" variable speed scroll saw comes complete with a work light, a 1500mm long rotary flexi-shaft and a 50 piece accessory kit. The powerful 90 watt high torque motor allows for cutting a wide variety of materials up to 50mm in depth. The variable speed range of 550 to 1600 strokes per minute gives this scroll saw the ability to cut intricate and delicate shapes in a wide range of materials including hard and soft woods, plastics and non ferrous metals. Extremely well balanced the two blade arms are independently pivoted and glide effortlessly to allow for creating smooth clean cuts. The heavy duty base is made from cast iron and gives stability to ensure low vibration.
By rotating the tensioning knob you can accurately control the tension in the scroll saw blade to suit varying applications and materials. The table is machined from aluminium and is 250mm wide by 415mm long and tilts through 45 degrees for bevel cutting. The motor powers a bellow that blows air directly onto the point of cut to ensure excellent visibility when following a pencil line and results in an improved finish. A 35mm diameter dust port allows the scroll saw to be directly connected to a vacuum cleaner. The 35 watt work light gives excellent visibility and can be moved and locked off in any position.
I used to have a top German scroll saw in my old workshop, After moving to my new home and with no workshop as such, I could only keep the woodcarving side of my hobby and therefore a new scroll saw was required. This saw does the job very well so far - little noise and just a little vibration that is all. First class machine and very good value for money.

Recently purchased this scroll saw with rotary attachment, excellent service from Rutlands. Thought I'd better give it a try, so set out to make some nameplates for all the grandchildren and was very pleased with the machine, quiet running variable speed control brilliant, a lot better than my previous Nu tool saw. Hope it lasts as long. Highly recommend this machine for the price.

What I like about this scroll saw is how quiet it runs. I work with veneer faced sheets and with the correct blade choice and speed setting there is no edge chipping what so ever. I have used many brands over the years and can confidently say that pound for pound this is an excellent scroll saw.

The best thing about this scroll saw is the dusrt extraction port positioning and the blow tube. The port is positioned right next to the opening of the table so it draws dust away at the point of cut, whilst the blow tube blows air on the top of the workpiece so that you have perfect vision of the blade. Very nice machine.

The variable speed control is excellent as it allows me to vary the speed to suit the material and thickness of material that I am sawing. The motor is a lot quieter than my previous Draper saw and I particularly like the blower as I can see my line of cut. Before I was always running out of puff to see the line!

I make wooden clocks that I offer at craft fairs throughout the country. I previously had a second hand Hegner scroll saw which needed up dating as the motor seemed to me stalling frequently. I bought this one after reading a number of reviews on woodworking forums. This model appears to be sold under many brands so I simply choose the lowest price combined with the free rotary tool. Must say it has performed very well over past few weeks. Vibration is negligible. Blade breakage is low (I use plane end blades that Rutlands don't sell - Pegasus)The shaft drive is also useful for signing off each clock. I would recommend.
