The Porter-Cable PCB375SS is not just a regular scroll saw, but it is one that comes with a stand and a bevel scale for accurate measurements. It looks like a sturdy saw, but will it meet your expectations or leave you disappointed?
Our team has tested the scroll saw in this Porter-Cable PCB375SS Scroll Saw review to give you an answer.
What We Like
What We Don't Like
The Porter-Cable PCB375SS is a decently-sized scroll saw that has ample table space to allow for most tasks but the overall construction is still compact enough to fit in smaller workshops.
During our Porter-Cable PCB375SS Scroll Saw reviews and tests, our team appreciated how the front-facing control knob is conveniently placed. You can adjust the speed, turn the machine on and off, work the LED light and mini dust blower without having to reach around.
The work table is large, giving you enough space to work with and the tabletop bevel scale is precise with its measurements and is displayed conveniently.
Porter-Cable PCB375SS Scroll Saw Features
Size and Material
As said, the PCB375SS is not an overly large scroll saw, but the table is large enough to accommodate 45-degree cuts from the right and 15-degrees from the left. The scroll saw is made from heavy-duty steel, which gives the stand and overall body of the saw more stability.
How efficient a saw can be depends on the motor power, which the PCB3755SS has in abundance. The scroll saw features a 1.6 amp ball-bearing induction motor  that is reliable and powerful enough to cut through most materials.
Speed: Porter-Cable PCB375SS Scroll Saw
To go with the impressive motor power, the PB375SS needs to match it with lightning speeds. Capable of producing 500-1500 SPM, the PCB3755SS did not disappoint our team. The speed is also adjustable via the variable speed control knob also conveniently located at the front of the saw.
The blades can be switched out as needed, and the Porter-Cable scroll saw is compatible with any 5-inch pin or plain end scroll saw blades. Depending on the material and the type of cut you want to do, the PCB375SS can assist you.
Our experts always prefer a saw that features changeable blade options, but not if the process is difficult. Luckily, the PCB375SS offers a tool-less blade change thanks to the cam locking blade tension lever.
Throat: Porter-Cable PCB375SS Scroll Saw
The throat size dictates how large your workpiece can be. The Porter-Cable PCB375SS scroll saw has an 18-inch throat, providing you with a larger margin to work with compared to other saws of the same size.
A larger throat size equals more flexibility and a wider variety of projects you can create.
Performance: Porter-Cable PCB375SS Scroll Saw
Our team tested the Porter-Cable PCB375SS by adjusting the speed, using different blades, and trying different materials to see if it meets our stringent expectations. The verdict is – yes! The Porter-Cable scroll saw’s powerful motor and variable speeds allowed our team to cut through wood very quickly and smoothly.
Our experts mentioned the patented worktable, but just how large is it? The table size measures 20” x 12-⅝”. This will give woodworkers sufficient space to work with larger wood pieces. The table also tilts to accommodate bevel cuts and allows for more directional movement as you maneuver your material.
Dust Collection and Blower
The cleanup for certain scroll saws can be a hassle, which is why our experts really appreciated the internal dust collection system and dust blower. The dust blower is miniature in size and is built right into the control center. You can adjust the duct direction to get all the dust and debris.
The dust collection port is located beneath the table and can be connected to a standard vacuum hose.
LED Work Light of Porter-Cable PCB375SS Scroll Saw
Our team also loved the LED work light, which was a very thoughtful feature the manufacturer included. Like the dust blower duct, the LED light is also adjustable and miniature in size. It can illuminate the work area when you need more visibility in low-lighting conditions.
Price and Warranty
For a scroll saw with a stand, the Porter-Cable PCB375SS is a good deal at only a few hundred dollars. It comes in cheaper than other scroll saws that are higher priced even without the sturdy steel stand.
If you are still unsure about the quality and performance of the product, our team believes that the buyer’s protection will persuade you. The PCB375SS comes with a 3-year limited warranty, and 1-year of free service should anything go wrong.
Once you receive the product, you have 90 days to test out the product to make sure it is everything you want or you can return it for a full money-back guarantee no questions asked.
