poor construction tolerences

This saw vibrates a lot. Well, it vibrates way, way too much, which says that not much thought was put into resonance dampening through frame rigidity or design. When running, the blade moves off center approximately 1/16 of an inch to both sides of center, which means that your cut starts out 1/8 of an inch wide, then narrows to something a bit wider than what you anticipate. If you've ever been concerned that your angles are too sharp, you won't have that as a concern with this saw as the wide side to side movement becomes apparent whenever a corner is "rounded," literally "rounded." Do yourself a favor and buy a coping saw for ten bucks and save the anger that you spent a hundred and really *can* do a better job by hand, or buy at least a Dremel, or the Dewalt scroll saw. Just stay away from this piece as it is an exercise in futility for woodworkers of every experience level.

I bought this scroll saw a few months ago just for on the side projects...it was only $100 but it vibrates, its really loud,and u cant make a turn without it jumping and messing your project up,the blades have prongs on them so they hardly fit through any of the gates ive drilled,when you turn, the blade turns and bends and after a few turns its bent and it you need a new one...the blower doesnt hardly work so I have to whistle the whole time or blow every 2 seconds...bottom screw that titens the blade in place falls off and u have to take off this plate and takes away precious time...if u use a little blade it jumps left and right but if you use a bigger blade its hard to turn...the arm looking piece on top doesnt lift up so its hard to put the blade through a hole if it will even fit...i use an excalibur scroll saw in shop at my school and it works like a charm on everything...but its like $700...but I dont have enough money for that because Im only 14...so u get wat u pay 4!

Just okay

As a serious woodworking, I was in the market for a scroll saw just for some light duty work here and there. Purchased this saw, mainly cause of it's great price, and was very disappointed with the vibration of this machine. Controls are easy to use and the work area is large enough but overall performance is poor. If in the market, consider a more expensive saw.

Merry christmas to me!

Recived this saw for a christmas gift and I must say it's a very poor choice for a saw. The vibration is so bad my hands were tingling after an hour, the noise level is so high hearing protection is recomended. the blade clamps wont hold the blade tight. Craftsmen really droped the ball on this saw.

Perfect for my craft jobs

This saw has been just great for my projects. It has a sawdust blower and a up close light that can both be adjusted. The gurad is a little in the way and not so easy to move around, but is very handy. The light bulb went out and could easily be replaced with Christmas light bulb. Stock up durring the Christmas season.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Scroll saw????

Very excited to get this new saw...old one still running, but know it will not go on forever. Got this one home and set up. Put in a blade...very difficult to get tight enough to hold it....had a piece of quarter inch birch plywood with pattern ready to saw. Turned on the saw...MISTAKE !!! It vibrated so bad that before I could turn it off, there was a hole about 3/8" in the plywood. Not only did the saw go up and down, but sideways and every which way. The speed control did not work on it. When you turned on the light the saw would not work. It was EXTREMELY loud...sounded like a tractor !!! It was a piece of JUNK !!!! Boxed it up and took it back for a refund.....best thing about the saw was getting it from Sears, and had no problem getting a refund. Would NOT recommend !!!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Dumbs down for this saw

My wife had brought this saw for me on father's. When I went to use it the motor was dead. I return and got another one. The second one didn't work either. The tension knob was broke, back to sears. the 3rd and 4th had the housing for the on-off switch broken in pieces. The 5th one was also had a bad the tension knob. Afther 5 trips to Sears and a half tank of gas, I gave up and just got my money back.
