Everything About Scroll Saws

DEWALT DW788 scroll saw review

With the different types of saws available, it can be easy to mix one type with another. Take for instance the jigsaw which is occasionally mistaken for the scroll saw. If you’re caught in such a predicament, it is often useful to remember that the latter is intended for heavier use but is very much capable of creating small and intricate cuts with its teeth. As opposed to the jigsaw, a scroll saw is also installed on a table, although not quite in a way that table saws would be positioned. It is also considered more of a specialty tool than, say, the band saw, which is used for more straightforward exercises.

Even though there are different types for scroll saws, they all share the same elements. You can distinguish the tool from the rest with its flat table, the base, the thin blade, the connector that binds the motor with the blade, and some limbs.

When in motion, the scroll saw’s blade will have to be moved up and down. While doing so, the speed of the blade could be adjusted as one desires. Once you see the machine in action, you’ll be impressed to see that it can create such intricate cuts like a handheld tool used meticulously whilst being powered by electricity.

A myriad of materials can be sawed using the tool. Wood is of course a given, but you can also subject plastic and thin metal for the sweet, intricate shaping. Are you thinking plexiglass? Sure, you can give it a try, too! And this it can do even with significantly thick materials, and without the need to dust afterwards.

The scroll saw can do narrow cuts, and that is due to the size of the blade which are measured in teeth per inch. When going through the scroll saws available and the blades that can be used with them, it is important to note that the higher number for the teeth per inch is related to the speed by which the blade turns and just how thin the cuts caused by the blades could be. But then overall performance also depends on certain factors, such as blade types. We’ll cover that and more in a comprehensive scroll saw buying guide.
