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.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 75 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Happy Camper This is my third scroll saw and by far the best. Blade changing is easily accomplished. Speed adjustment is in a perfect place to adjust while operating. And there is plenty of room to work with some longer pieces. I use it every day and have had no problems. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent purchase. Scroll saw was already assembled and ready to use except for blade insertion. I have used scroll saws previously and this one was just as easy to use. The manual was customer designed and quite easy to follow. I highly recommend all Ryobi products. August 9, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Inexpensive and acts like it... Basic scroll saw is what you get for the low price. Do not get this saw if you plan on using it regularly, won't hold up at all. August 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by riobi scroll saw First let me start off by saying how much I love Ryobi tools. I am always amazed at the quality vs price of their products. Then there's this scroll saw that I had to return for all negative qualities you have read about in the other reviews. It vibrates horribly and the blower is really useless. I got the Dewalt with the stand and am very happy now. Spend the extra money if are going to spend more than ten minutes scrolling. You will not regret it. July 31, 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 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 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 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
