With enhanced stability, it becomes effortless to work with the saw efficiently. This saves you any inconveniences and challenges you may encounter when using a poor quality scroll saw.

The Iron Base of the saw comes with a 16-inch Throat Size that offers additional support to the wooden material you are cutting.  In addition to this, the cast-iron base reduces vibrations and shocks when using the saw.  It goes without saying that this enhances accuracy and stability when cutting.

The speed range of the saw is rated at 550-1650 SPM.  This speed variation feature allows you to increase or lower the saw’s speed according to your requirements.  When working on tasks that require the blade to rotate at fast speeds such as when cutting through thick and hard, you just use the speed trigger to increase the speed.

This is where the dust blown off from the platform collects. What is unique about this is that it allows you to concentrate on the work platform undeterred by dust or any other form of dirt. You can attach a vacuum cleaner to the dust port to suck up the dust after you are done working.
