unlimited project opportunities, it's easy to see why scroll sawing
has been gaining in popularity at such a rapid rate since the mid
1980's. Let the Shopsmith Scroll Saw lead you to the fun!
variable-speed Shopsmith Scroll Saw is delicate enough to saw thin
veneers, inlays, intricate fretwork or mother-of-pearl…yet powerful
enough to slice through brass, bone, plastics and hard or soft woods
up to a full 2-inches thick with amazing ease!
special blade blocks hold all 5-inch, plain end fret saw or jigsaw
blades from 1/4-inch wide down to super-fine blades for intricate
blades on old-fashioned Jigsaws were typically powered only on the
down stroke, with a spring-loaded return stroke. As a result, it
was often difficult to maintain tension that was constant enough
to cut anything much thicker than 1-1/2-inches or so. Plus, the
brief lag in the return produced cuts that almost always required
Scroll Saw's blade, however, is powered on both the down (cutting)
and up (return) strokes, thereby producing a constant blade tension
to deliver more positive control over the cut and prevent premature
blade breakage. Couple all this with a wide, infinitely-variable
speed range and it's easy to see why, with a Shopsmith Scroll Saw,
you'll get super-smooth cuts every time, and practically never need
to finish sand your cut line. It meets or beats the competition
and is priced hundreds of dollars less!
the Shopsmith Scroll Saw is a hands-down winner!
