Means it plugs in for power as opposed to battery powered. I think they highlight this just to insure no one is confused. It could certainly be carried to a job site but there would need to be power at the job site.

Absolutely just takes a little more patience as the blade will snap if you try to turn project too fast or too tight.

Answer: 
I think it would be a big improvement over a jig saw. I have been using a jig saw to cut profiles on baseboard trim for internal corners and the scroll saw does a much better and easier job cutting the profiles. The radiuses I'm cutting are on the same order as you'd do for toy making.

Hi Sawdustmaker. Yes, both round and plain end blades will work with this unit. It works by the blade clamp actually opening up and clamping down onto the blade you are using.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible Design I am an avid scrollsawer, and have spend much time on better saws like the Excalibur, Dewalt, and Hegner. I purchase this saw because I was hoping for something portable I could take with me on the go. Positives: Vibration is about what I would expect for a very light saw.. If it runs on high, it will really need to be clamped down. Clamps: It is pinless and it uses a Hegner type approach to squeezing the blade between two pieces of metal. This means the clamp knob never touches the blades, and thus no Hockey Sticks. However, unlike the Hegner, the first time I put a small blade in, the clamps didn't open back up all the way, and now I can't even get a #5 in the clamp. Will probably have to pry it back apart. Power: Seems ok for thin wood, but I'll come back after I try something thick with it FIt and Finish: Mostly Positive, except they didn't put the Spec label on straight, and some of it is peeling up before I even got it out of the box. Apart from that, no complaints. Negative: 1. Neither clamps have positive stops to hold the blades in the center of the clamp, so that means you had better not have shaky hands or problems with spacial judgement. 2. Bottom clamp is not easily accessible from the bottom of the saw which makes blade changes, as noted below, extremely painful 3. Insert is not even close to flush with table, meaning, it will catch your wood. Superglue on the bottom could be used to bring it back flush. 4. Holes in insert are massive, meaning, without a zero clearance insert, it is next to impossible to cut small items. 4a. Since you have to remove insert to change blades, using a zero clearance insert becomes much more challenging 4b. The large holes in the insert will also catch the wood. 5. The dust blower is weak, and the nozzle is attached to the Hold Down arm. The actual hold down piece can be removed from the arm, but the dust blower is still in the way of the insert removal 6. No quick tensioner/de-tensioner. Tensioner is in rear of saw. In fretwork, this would get tiring in a hurry 7. No positive stop for table angles, so you will always have to find and adjust to lock in on zero. 8. After using thinner blades, clamp do not re-open enough for larger blades. There are no words to describe how I feel about that. Can you imagine having to use a screwdriver to pry back open the clamps after changing blade sizes? 9. Top Feed Only. Blade Changes: By far, the most unforgivable thing about this saw is the process to change blades. 0. Reduce tension in back of saw to lower top clamp/arm 1. Move the post up that holds the dust blower nozzle 2. Remove the Insert from the table 3, Depending on your lighting, you may have to shine a flashlight down the hole to see the clamp 4. Placing the blade through the hole, try to balance the blade in the middle of the clamp (remember no positive stop) 5. There is an unreachable thumbscrew on the bottom clamp, but no worries, there is a 6 inch tool that can be guided through the bottom of the table to that thumbscrew. So steady that arm, insert the tool deep into the saw into the knob, and tighten. 6. Replace insert. 7. Now top feed workpiece over blade 8. Place blade in top clamp, and try to keep it center of clamp 9. Use thumbscrew to tighten top clamp 10. Use back knob to re-tension 11. Now, lower rod holding blower nozzle back into position over work piece Easy Peasy? After that, you might be ready for a break. When someone asks what typically differentiates the better saws from the cheaper saws. For me, the blade change mechanisms are the most notable, especially as relates to accessibility of that bottom clamp. I knew I wasn't paying for a Dewalt, but still, the problems with this saw are design, not quality or cost of materials. I was prepared to deal with some less than ideal aspects of this saw, but, I still needed it to be usable, and for the frequent blade changes that I do, this saw is not usable. Bottom line, this was a very poorly designed saw and even at $99 I'm disappointed. If I cut puzzles, or solid animal shapes, or other stuff that didn't require constant blade changes, I might be able to tolerate this saw, but as it is, I think I'm going to have to return it, and you can bet I won't recommend it ever July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First Scroll Saw This worked straight out of the box with no issues at all. Very straightforward use, and it worked well. There's a blower thing that they added to remove dust out of the way which does almost nothing whatsoever but it doesn't really bug me. It also seems to have a hard time cutting really tight corners, I've already broken two blades but to be fair, this is my first time with a scroll saw so there's a very high probability that it's just my fault. It also moves around a lot when working with it, but once again I'm a beginner and maybe I haven't secured it properly. All in all I'm very happy with this product. June 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobis failure at the ScrollSaw This item is cheaply made cracked and broke quickly. Harbor freight made one a lot better for a lot less. Now i know why this item is not in stores. No one would purchase it if seen first hand. On the pic on the box it shows rubber feet . There are none in the box. It is Trash March 1, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi scroll saw. Vary hard to change blades, and can not get it to hold pinless bladed. Does not blow dust off as you work. July 19, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Blade gap too wide. Plate in table does not sit flush with the table and no adjustment found. Large gap around blade for fine work. Otherwise no complaints. June 24, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Worst Ryobi product made Most of my tools are Ryobi products and I have never had any problems with them until this tool. I purchased one in Feb. 2016 and it was taken back to the store in April ( had to drive to a store 45 mins away because not many stores carry this product, and know I think I know why.) due to the blade support breaking. Got a new one and now this one is going back due to something rattling inside the casing. I think I will spend the extra money and get a better quality one elsewhere. I bought this because I am new to scrolling and wanted to make sure I would enjoy it before investing serious money into a quality scroll saw. May 7, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by average I have many Ryobi products. But with this scroll saw I am a bit disappointed. I guess if you are just doing really light work, then it will probably work well for you. I guess I was just expecting it to be more durable, tougher, but the last couple Ryobi products I have purchased, Bench sander, belt sander, drill press, and this scroll saw, I feel shorted. I bought them because I have many Ryobi Products and have not been this disappointed, (I should have just saved and paid for the higher priced items.) I mean they work, just kinda weak, and not very solid. The output on them is not very powerful and they really are for light work. I won't give up on Ryobi, just some tools you gotta step it up a notch and invest a bit more. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ryobi Scroll Saw Really like variable speed. Easy blade exchange. Sturdy and well built. June 15, 2016
