Product Description

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.

  • Variable speed (400-1600 spm) cuts through soft or hard woods, plastic and soft metals.

Perfect for my use
I did quite a bit of research before buying this saw. In general, there are two categories of scroll saws. One group consists of saws in the $100.00 to $150.00 range, which many reviewers label as "bad" saws, and the second group consists of saws from $400.00 on up, which most reviewers label as "good" saws. Since I don't earn a living by using a scroll saw I quickly eliminated all of the good saws, leaving me to pick from the bad saws. From reading many reviews, I decided that this was the best of the bad saws. I own and use a variety of power tools, including a band saw, and the woodworking projects I do are mainly crafts projects using wood from 1/4" to 1" thick. I recently started building wooden toys, and there are occasions where I could have used a scroll saw. For example, I tried cutting out a square window for the side of a truck by using a coping saw but the result was less than desirable. With this scroll saw I can easily accomplish that task. So far, this saw has served my needs perfectly. I haven't mounted the saw to the workbench or to a piece of wood; I simply placed it on a rubber mat on the workbench. Yes, it does vibrate somewhat, but not enough to make me mount it. So for my purpose, it's a great saw and I would highly recommend it. However, if you make your living by using a scroll saw then nothing will suffice but a high priced "good" saw.

Doesn't work well with plain end blades
I struggled for 2 hours to get this to hold plain end blades. It simply won't hold the really small ones. The design for holding plain end blades is very bad. As you screw in the hold down screw, it torques the holder so far to the right, the blade comes right out. If I had a third hand, maybe it would work. It handled pin-end blades just fine. However, I took the saw back to Sears, and it won't handle 1/2 of the blades it says it handles. Brad

Price/Value the best choice!

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.

great little machine

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Another shaky Sears product

The blower didn't work from day one. I wasn't surprised from reading the reviews that it wasn't great and had a small vac to put beside it so I had that covered. First time user and took some time getting it to cut straight. Blade changing wasn't as bad as the reviews. Have bought two sears tools and something didn't work or had broken parts out of the box. Will be picking up a band saw today, will see what is broken. Sears *quality* where did you go.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Happy So Far

I'm new to the hobby of scroll sawing. Not sure if it was something I was really going to like, I decided not to buy a $600 machine. I've been making small ornaments from patterns. So far, I'm very happy with this tool. The only thing I could see that might be a problem is, if you have big hands and fingers, blade changing could be difficult. I've also found that using plain end blades is easier than pin end. I bought a foot pedal too. Makes it easy to stop the blade if your cut is running off of the line. For a beginner, I think it's a great saw to start out with.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

blade chages

if you takea small clamp and grip the plain end blade so the bottom just goes beyond the set screw on the bottom. you rest the clamp on the table then just snug fit the set screw and with other hand hold the blade so it does not come out and set the screw. then just tighten the top and your done. for those of you who are conplaining about blade changes should think of doing something else, it's not that hard. most of the time if the saw stops there is a fuse where the comtrolls are just undo the 4 screws and put in a new fuse done. other wise the saw is cheap and really not that bad. i use it about 15 to 20 hours a week. bettrer buying this than spending big bucks on a dewalt

Scroll Saw

Very nice saw. The dust blower could blow a little better, but I believe that is my only complaint. Power is good - use it for hobbies and have cut up to 3/4 inch pine with no problem! Good saw for a good deal!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Awesome Product!!!

This is my first scroll saw and it is great ans easy to set up and use, Great for beginner and pros alike, and best of all variable speed! lets you cut medium size projects while 90% of the machine is cast metal not plastic so it will hold up well. I love the Vacuum connection on the from and it allows the sawdust to be collected rather than have to take the plate off at regular intervals and clean, Overall Great Saw and Highly recommend!
