Scroll saws help you make intricate designs for your woodworking projects
Scroll saws are unlike any other power saw. They create intricate decorative patterns and shapes in wood, metal or plastic. For fine woodworkers and craftsmen, a scroll saw is the tool that can make your project a work of art. Not only will you be able to create special projects, you'll be able to give them your own personal touch, from toys to furniture.
Sears has a wide variety of quality scroll saws from which to choose. While the tendency is to focus on the word power when purchasing a power tool, when it comes to scroll saws, the power of the tool comes in second to the features. It's key to have a scroll saw that you can easily use, so finding which model has the specifics you are looking for are key. With variable speeds, you have control over how quickly you trace the shape you've penciled onto the material you're working on. Go quickly on straight lines and slowly when making a lot of turns and curves. The dust blower and sawdust shield helps keep your line of visions clear while you use the scroll saw.
Also, consider the material you will be using the most often. Choose a machine that can handle the toughest materials you could ever see working on. If you undershoot to get a cheaper machine, you could end up having to upgrade in the future, costing you more. In addition, how quickly can you change blades? If the blade requires an extra tool to remove, you may want to choose an easier option.
