16" Variable Speed Saw Provides Powerful Performance
This Craftsman Scroll Saw not only measure a whopping 16 inches from blade to throat but also proves that it's not the size of the tool but rather what you can do with it that wins out in nearly every situation. This variable speed saw provides from 400 to 1600 strokes per minute, giving you the versatility you need to cut through soft and hard woods, as well as plastic and soft metals. A large cast iron work table with up to 45-degree tilt also allows you to really expand your bag of tricks with fancy moves like bevel cutting.
This 16" Variable Speed Saw was made with the understanding that after all that hard work, no one has the energy to clean up a big mess. Fortunately, the multi-directional dust blower on this Craftsman scroll saw does the dirty work for you, keeping the cutting line free of dust and debris so you can focus all your energy on precision. Make the rest of cleanup a breeze by utilizing the shop vac-compatible dust extraction port and stashing your extra blades in the convenient on-board storage.

I got this for a Christmas gift and was excited to finally have one. The first 4 times I used it, it worked great. Then, when I pulled it out to use it again to make a set of chimes...nothing. Would not turn on at all. Had it longer than the warranty period so when I called for assistance, I was told they would have to send someone out to me...at the tune of $100 for the service call, not to include parts or repairs! The dang saw only cost $96! Think the overload sensor tripped for some reason...too bad it still looks new out of the box...
I just took her for a spin around the block. It isn't sweet or sexy, but what kind of frills do the more expensive brands offer that you can't do with this machine? It does everything the more expensive brands will do and at a much lower price. After reviewing the Craftsman, I just could not see buying something so much more expensive. This machine does what I need it to do and I can't knock off any points for quality. There's nothing wrong with it. It's a great little tool and I would recommend it to everybody. Overall, it's probably the best value for your money when it comes to this kind of tool. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
My husband bought this saw for my birthday. I had a different model and had worn it out over years of use. I really like the variable speeds . It makes it much easier when cutting different thickness of wood.
Decent machine . only two things wrong with it -- 1st the bottom blade clamp keeps flopping forward when you try ti tighten down the blade lock screw.and 2nd the air bellows is totally under powered. Fixed the 1st by installing a wooded block infront of blade holder as I tighten down the screw and for the 2nd use a aquarium air pump (for a 30 gal or larger tank )

I am a weekend handyman, doing exclusively home rather than commercial projects. So, I wanted a Scroll Saw that would do the simple things, and this saw fits nicely. It is light enough to move around on a crowded workbench, yet heavy enough to stay put when fired up. I like the saw; I've done a couple of small projects with ease. If you are a demanding professional, this might not be for you, but for the average guy, the saw -- and the price -- is right.

I build wooden clocks that requires precision cuts of all kind of woods from 1/16"to 3/4". With the proper blade this machine performs great with both pin and flat end blades. The only thing I'm no very happy is that it is not easy and kind of tricky to change the flat end blades.
this is more than i expected. reviews talk about vibration and noise? i have been operating a tool room for years which includes repairing tools- air , electrical and any other tool they make. been 48 years doing this. this scroll saw is about the same as a singer sewing machine. goes through 3/8 like a knife in butter. if you are looking for a scroll saw that is priced right and not as noisy as the ..**** o.experts say. take it from someone who has fixed tools for years. buy this one you will like it. if you are a expert ..and your machine is noisy. you need to take it to someone like me and get it fixed. have fun guys.thanks for reading this
I bought this for my son in law for Xmas, he is a very talented young man and so far he has been using it two to three times a week. He has made beautiful wood wall hangings like you would get in a home decorating store
