Tip & How-To about Saws
Some times there are woodworking projects that you will want to do that can be very difficult to do with a regular power saw. There are several big benefits to using a scroll saw over other saws due to its ease of use and control.
Lets say that you want to make a jigsaw puzzle, you could use a jigsaw saw that has to be mounted on a table because they are difficult to control or you could use a scroll saw that is a mounted saw to begin with. You will also find that a scroll saw allows for more control and has much less vibration than a jigsaw.
The cuts that a scroll saw make are so smooth that in most cases you won't need to sand down the edges. This is a really helpful feature when you are working on cutting difficult to get into angles and cutting inside a piece.
The ability to make an interal cut without having to start the cut from the edge of the piece of wood a huge advantage over most other saws. When you want to make a cut out all you have to do is drill a hole in the area you want to cut out, and then slide the blade through the hole and use the scroll saw to cut out the edges. There is also a foot pedal that you can use so that you can keep both hands on the piece so it doesn't run away when the blade starts moving.
Many power tools tend to be very loud, which lends themselves to the user working alone with earplugs of some other forms of hearing protection. The scross saw is a very quiet power tool that is perfect for you to teach your kids about the art of woodworking. And it is safe enough that they can use it to build their own model airplanes and artwork.
