Used for the cutting more intricate and complex joints and curves, a scroll saw, sometimes referred to as a sawscroll, can be electric or pedal operated. Amond the wood working saws, it is one of the popular saws with woodwork hobbyists which require little space and are safe and easy to use.
A scroll saw is capable of dealing with the kind of complex decorative work that a hand saw, coping saw or jigsaw cannot. Additionally, they can be used to cut dovetail joints. As the name implies, they have traditionally been used in the creation of scrollworks. In function, a scroll saw is similar to a band saw, but whereas a band saw is fitted with a blade on a continuous loop, a scroll saw uses blades resembling those of coping saws and functions by way of a reciprocating motion. With scroll saws it is not necessary to create an entry aperture for the blade at the edge of the item being worked on as the machine's blade can be removed and placed through a pre-drilled starting hole to make completely enclosed internal cuts. Such advantages allow for a considerable amount of leeway for creativity, giving rise to the popularity of this tool amongst woodworkers. When looking for a scroll saw for sale it's worth noting that there are a number of different types. The rigid arm scroll saw is no longer produced, but can still be found from time to time in a scroll saw sale. Today's most common design has the motor attached near the back of the arms, which always remain parallel in relation to each other, leading to the machine being referred to as a parallel arm saw. The C arm saw has the motor mounted between the two ends of a C shaped arm. The parallel link saw has movable articulated arms holding the blade. Scroll saws are categorized according to the size of the distance between the blade and the rear frame. This is called the throat, and determines how large the scroll saw wood workpiece can be. Scroll saw blades are generally around 12.7 cm in length and are divided into a number of major types; skip tooth, double skip tooth, crown (2 way), spiral, reverse tooth, ultra-reverse, metal cutting and diamond.
There are three major considerations to take into account when choosing a scroll saw for sale. Basic cut outs do not require a machine with too many features, but if you are looking at doing intricate woodworking then it's best to go with something that is of a higher spec. For professional work a high end model is desirable. You also need to look at the speed of the model. These will be of slow, medium and high ranges. Flexibility and dust disposal are also worth looking into. To find the best scroll saw for you, a look at an online used scroll saw auction is advisable. Here you will be able to view all kinds of makes and models and more easily decide which is the most suitable for your needs. Additionally, online auctions are the best way to find a good cheap scroll saw, saving you money while ensuring you receive the maximum value for your outlay.
