@Monkey Paws, ya did good my friend, I have a buddy at work who has owned that saw for awhile now and he loves it. His young son uses it too and they are both scrolling away, and both beginners, they are having a blast with it. I am very excited for you and I hope you post images of the work that comes off that saw, way to go!!!

Kenny I can't speak from any experience on this model but from a price point you did well. From what you described previously about your old Craftsman (pretty sure I have one like you did), they seem to sell for $30-$50 pretty consistently on CL do for only a few $$'s more you upgraded. Having VS I think would be a plus too.

 

WEN's redefined image of affordable WW'ing tools seems to be real with significant numbers of favorable reviews across their product line. This should be a good entry saw IMO to see if scroll sawing is something you really want to pursue.

 

Look forward to your review of the tool after you've had a chance to drive "her a few miles."

 Ken, that looks like a good saw to start off with. Pinless blades are probably the way to go, smaller hole to drill and they thread through the wood easier.

I think once your set up and running you'll enjoy it. Plenty of patterns on the web.

There are some good idea tips in this forum on how to apply & remove patterns. Questions are always welcomed. Have fun.

Since I have never seen one of those it would be impossible to comment on how good it will work!. I see a knob down under the right side. Is that to set the tension or the speed. If its for the speed can you make the tension on the blade more or less. Also how do you attach the pinless blades? Is the on off switch down on the right side under the table also? How small of a hole around the blade is the insert?

Just took a look at that saw on amazon. It looks like a nice machine to start and learn with. Especially at that price. 

Awaiting your review.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
