Didn’t like the way the unit held the blades, if you slightly over tightened the tension-er the blade would pull out of the holder. Note same system is on the new Ryobi as well. I spent more money and bought the Jet brand.
Great scroll saw. Does a great job on 11/2 plywood. Just takes a little time to cut thru it. Very smooth cut also.
My first scroll saw! I was pleased with the ease of set up. Made my first complete cut out without breaking the blade! So far it seems to be well worth the money.
Love the topless blade change. Miss the blade storage. Seems smaller and alot noiser than the previous model. Works great so far.
Scroll saw came ready to use and works great!
Easy to change blades. I am working to improve my skills with the saw.
I’m love this saw but I wouldn’t say it’s “easy” access to change blade as quickly as I thought. But overall, does the job right!
Nice Product. Well built.
Very helpful in in stalling/cutting a floating floor and managing corners/angles.
Just what I wanted. Thank you.
Works well. It is what I wanted for my wood carving hobby.
One very handy little saw. For years I have been putting off getting a scroll saw, trying to compensate by making several cuts with a band saw and then filing something to final size. No more. With the WEN scroll saw, now I can cut circles, odd shapes, wood, plastic, or metal, at even acute angles without having to make continuous cuts or final manual shaping to fit my project. The saw comes completely assembled. After a few minor tweaks to ensure the table was level and square to the blade, adjusting the blade guard foot, and the sawdust blower, she was ready to go. The variable speed is also handy, depending upon the thickness and material you’re working with and it comes packaged with three blades.
Great. saw. Have only used it a few times. Have no issues with it. Works great for me. Price was less than I set for one Had money left for some extra blades
I have used a portable jigsaw for curved and interior wood cuts for many years, but those days are over. This bench mounted scroll saw allows me to move the woodwork instead of moving my jigsaw, and this allows far more accuracy in both edge and interior wood cuts. The 16″ arm clearance and 16″X10″ work table size have proved quite adequate. I also really like the integrated air pump that keeps my work area clear while I am cutting. The controls on the saw which allow on/off operation, making angle cuts (up to 45 degrees), tightening the blade, and changing strokes per minute (550 to 1600 strokes/min) are well placed and easy to use. Removing or replacing the blade for doing inside the woodwork scrolling, (or just changing the pinned or pinless blades) is done easily without needing tools. Three blades are included. Using only 1.2 amps it plugs in to my standard workbench outlet and is ecologically friendly. I have not used it to cut thicker wood but it nice to know it will cut up to 2″ vertically. I had become fairly proficient with my jigsaw but this is making my wood scrolling both easier and more accurate. It is a very welcome addition to my garage.
I’m very happy with this WEN scroll saw. I have never used a scroll saw before but something I’ve always wanted to have for my crafting of wood plaques. So, my first try out—–it turned out great. The instructions to setup the saw were easy to follow and easy to do. I found very little vibration with the saw. In fact I only had mine sitting on a metal work bench (not screwed in). I didn’t experience any shifting or movement of the saw. I will say, the owners guide recommends adhering the saw to the work surface.I also, think the saw was pretty quiet.As I said, I’ve never used a scroll saw before and while I agree there’s a learning curve using it (as stated in the instructions), I was successful in cutting out a 6″ x 3″ seashell pattern from 1/2″ plywood, without breaking the blade. My pattern had one sharp turn and a bunch of curves. It took me about 10 minutes to cut out the shell. I don’t know whether that’s a reasonable amount of time or a long time, though.I’m very happy with this WEN saw and the results it produced.
This WEN variable speed scroll saw is a great addition to my woodshop. It allows me to produce creative wood projects that are impossible to produce using other power saws. It’s inexpensive and has many features found in other saws costing two or three times as much. It has a 9/16 inch stroke and cuts through 2 inch thick hard woods quickly and easily. The motor speed can be simply adjusted with the turn of a knob. Blade changes are quick and easy thanks to a fold-down side panel and require no tools. Not all was well with this saw. WEN, if you’re listening, all three of the base hold down screw holes are partially blocked by a part of the saw, making a straight shot with a driver impossible. This issue could have been avoided with some engineering forethought.Notable features:16 inch throat depth550 to 1600 SPM variable speed 1.2 amp motor2 inch cut capacity at 90 degrees45 degree left table tilt with built-in angle gaugeAccepts pinned, unpinned and spiral bladesThumb screw blade adapter for tool-free blade changesIncludes three spare blades and a hex wrench27.5 lb. weightAluminum non-corrosive table1-1/2 inch dust collection portAdjustable blade sawdust blowerLockable power switchTwo year warranty
This is my first scroll saw and I love it. Everything I read was true. It performs great and if I had to do it over again I’d purchase another one hands down. Thanks Wen for a great product.
Does what I need. Mostly made of metal and appears durable.
so far very good. I haven’t had alot of tme using it yet but am pleased with it’s performance.
