  1. I am trying to cut a shape with curves (no piercings) out of a piece of pine 12″x12″x3/4″. One of the curves is half of a circle that would have a diameter of 2 1/2″. That is the tightest curve.

    Would it be more appropriate to use a scroll saw or a jig saw for this kind of work? Thanks.

  2. hi, could you tell me why my pin blade is going off to the right,as the tension is right up and i’ve used it on soft wood and hardboard only from 2mm to 25mm thick. any help would be great….

      Hi, David. Thank you for your question. Can you provide a little more detail about what you are experiencing?  is the blade flexing?  Is it shifting so that you have to make constant adjustments to track to a line?  Is the problem happening consistently on hard/soft, and thick/thin woods?  Is the problem new or has the saw always done this? Do you have experience on other scroll saws, and this one is exhibiting behavior that other saws have not? A picture(good) or video (better) might help if you are able to provide one.

  3. It’s smooth like butter and silk and fresh from the teet milk with a fine action like a sewing machine.

  4. so basically its a “sewing” machine for men ? xD

      I’ve not come across this problem in the past.  I would start with a new blade, perhaps one with finer teeth, and see if that helps. Paul
