This quality scroll saw is made almost entirely in cast iron which has excellent vibration damping qualities. The twin pivot arm mechanism provides minimum blade oscillation, giving a very clean cut. A choice of stroke depth of 10 and 20mm also gives further options for different cutting tasks, as does the electronically variable stroke rate of between 400-1,400 per minute. Able to take both pinned and pinless blades, a handy blade clamp setting jig is built into the table, making accurate blade changes easy to do. The very large cast iron table has a smooth surface and gives great support to the work, also it can easily be tilted to 45° for bevel work. The table insert can be replaced with a blank unit which can be drilled to suit the blade, giving almost zero clearance for fine work. A 120W induction motor gives ample power and is silent running to avoid distractions. An articulated hose provides air from a bellows to keep the blade area free of dust, whilst a vacuum extractor can be connected to an outlet for dust control. An eye shield and work hold down foot are provided for added safety during use.
A separate, large, emergency stop control is fitted, in line with requirements for schools and colleges, offering a quality scroll saw at a realistic price.
Supplied with a blank table insert, spare pinless blade clamps and a pack of assorted Pegas, Swiss made blades. A wide range of either pinned or unpinned blades is available.
