Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for beginners I am going to start out like this if you are like me and a new beginner to wood working keep this one on your list. It is a perfect machine to practice with and learn on. For the 100 dollars I spent I got a good quality product for beginners. All of the levers and mechanisms are simple and easy to figure out. I saw many bad reports about this machine which I will tackle here in my opinion: 1) the blade change is simple people say it is difficult but you just have to be careful and if you have problems I used a needle nose to hold it in place when tightening it down. 2) noisy, yes out of the box it was a little noisy because the motor knocks on the bottom guard, simple fix, I bent the bottom guard up and it is quiet as can be. 3)moves around, like with all power tools, they vibrate, this was fixed when I put four bolts through the mounting holes on the stand, also making it quieter. 4) packaging problems, I had no problems with the packaging, it was nice and tightly packed with nothing bouncing around, very pleased with the packaging. 5) the blower, not the strongest, but in my point of view a little personal work blowing it away doesn't take much, plus if you have to blow the dust out of the way it makes you pay better attention to your line as a beginner. Overall very pleased with this product, if you are a beginner this is perfect to learn on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average product for the money This is not a high-quality product, but at $100 it's not a bad deal, either. The cheap plastic clip holding the air bellows in place broke after less than an hour of run-time. So the sawdust blower no longer works... minor inconvenience. The best thing going for this machine is the ease of changing blades. I've used it for several projects now, and changing blades is a snap - much easier and simpler than changing the blade on the Deltas. However, I am concerned about how long all the plastic knobs are going to last. Overall, this machine has performed reasonably well for me so far (I've had it for about a month), but it doesn't exactly exude quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Saw for a beginning scroller! I bought this saw after spending a lot of time researching the various types of scroll saws and reading what experienced scrollers recommended for beginners. That being said, many experienced scrollers recommended that a beginner not spend more than $150 on a scroll saw and to simply find one that accepted plain end and pin end blades. This saw fit the bill! I have run this saw quite a bit and have not broken anything on it but I will say that bolting it to a tabletop is a MUST. Lastly, the blower doesn't work very well keeping the sawdust off of your pieces but I am pretty content blowing it off... Anyway, I would recommend this saw to a friend and anyone else who was trying their hand at scrolling. This one will have to last until I can purchase the Dewalt scroll saw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice saw for the price Overall this saw does the job nicely. Had a little trouble getting the table turned upright after unpacking the saw. The right side mounting hole is very poorly placed because of control box covering the hole, unnecessary as there is lots of room for a clearance hole for the mount. The anti lift hold down bar shaft is quite loose but useable. The plastic table insert is about .035 below flush to the table causing it to catch work. I made a hardwood insert to be flush with the table top, kept the plastic one for when I need to make a new one. Minor irritations only. Not meant for heavy work but does a nice job at detail cutouts and delicate scroll work. Quite stable and vibration free at lower speeds, high speed starts to jump. The dust blower works well as does the vacuum port, which could have been turned 90deg and not hurt anything. Easy to change blades after bending the shroud back where it belongs making it easy to reach the lower clamp. A good wood shop addition, not a band saw replacement. It has its own niche. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a light to medium duty bench top saw. Seems like the designers did not consult with each other before manufacturing making some things awkward.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value. Rough out of the box, but capable and accurate with care and tweaking. Read further for set up advice... The negative reviews here nearly prevented me from buying this saw, but my experience with Ryobi's tile saw and drill press is that they can be tuned and tweaked to work quite well. I've only had one Ryobi tool (a palm sander) that ever failed to work at all, and Ryobi cheerfully replaced it. Given that experience, I rolled the dice on this scroll saw. The saw comes fully assembled, with a pinned blade installed and the table loosely set to a 45 degree tilt. Contrary to the tool description, the table tilts only to the left, not both ways. I removed the drop foot and used the head of my combo square to square the table to the blade. I don't anticipate ever tilting the table so I added some loctite to the locking knob threads once I had completed the rest of the set up. It is imperative that you mount this saw firmly or it will walk around on you. I did a test run with the saw loose and cut some quick shapes from 1/4 plywood scraps, and nearly slid it off the table...the rubber grommets at each bolt location are not enough to keep it from sliding around, at least not on the masonite surface of my assembly table, but I was able to verify that the saw cut pretty well, even with the cheap factory supplied blade. However, the saw made a terrible racket, quieting somewhat when I clamped it down with C-clamps, but still annoying. Observing the running saw, I noted that the sheet metal shroud was vibrating and then determined that the eccentric arm on the motor shaft was banging against the shroud. Removing the shroud quieted the machine way down and revealed that the blade arms and other internals of the saw are actually pretty well finished. A bit of gentle bending and careful re-installation of the shroud quieted the machine considerably. Satisfied that I could quiet the noise, I proceeded to permanently mount the tool in place in its new home. Unfortunately, this was a bit difficult. The switch/speed control housing unnecessarily interferes with one of the mounting points. It is simply not possible to place a lag screw through this hole with the switch housing in place. Removing the switch housing requires the removal of 11 screws (make sure the saw is unplugged first!) and doing so reveals that the space behind the switch cover-plate is mostly empty. This housing could be easily re-designed so that it does not interfere with the mounting of the saw. There is really no good reason for the switch to be mounted "sideways" instead of in a more conventional "up and down" orientation. This would shave about 3cm from the side of the switch housing, allowing clear access to the bolt hole with a 2" lag screw and socket wrench, and this is a change Ryobi should definitely make before starting the next production run of this saw. Be that as it may, I secured the saw to the bench, remounted the switch housing and fired it up. Firmly screwed to its permanent bench (2x4 frame, lag screwed to the wall with a layer of 3/4 ply for a top) the running saw was quiet enough to allow comfortable conversation in the shop. I left the saw running for a 10-15 minute "break in" while I rummaged through the scrap box for test pieces. Then I went to work. First off, while the saw will cut through 2x framing lumber, it's not happy about it...and scroll saws aren't for that anyway. More importantly, I was able to adequately follow wiggly lines on scraps of 3/4" Poplar and Oak. The factory blade did fine. More purposeful blade selection might do even better. Satisfied, I turned the saw, and a supply of 3/8 pine off-cuts over to my ten year old who got busily to work drawing shapes and then cutting them out. He happily spent the afternoon turning usable pieces of scrap into unusable ones, without, surprisingly, ever breaking the blade. We did note that the factory blade's performance dropped off significantly after about 3 hours of his work...which is probably better than anyone should expect for a scroll saw blade. The blade holders do an adequate job holding the pinned blades, and contrary to other reports, I've had no problem securely installing pinless blades and tensioning them adequately as well. I expect to continue tweaking and improving this saw: First, I will probably replace the factory shroud with a shop made one to better direct sawdust to the dust port. I don't mind the front dust port though. I'm just going to use my canister vacuum to collect the dust and it's easier to temporarily connect that at the front of the saw. I'm not delighted with the fit of the throat's about 1/32" too thin and has pretty wide clearance, so I am working on a template to knock out my own. Although there is a mounting point in the upper support arm for a work light, I haven't seen a light built to fit this saw. I will probably add some sort of light though, my eyes not being what they used to be. Finally, on my saw, the machining for the blade holders at the end of the moving blade arms is less than perfectly square. While cutting, this isn't noticeable to me, but I might be more persnickety if I decide to take up scroll sawing as a hobby. A bit of work with a file would probably cure this. To summarize: This is a perfectly serviceable tool if you need a scroll saw for quickly knocking out parts for jigs, fixtures or models, you occasionally do decorative scroll saw work or need to make interior cuts, or want a tool that your kids can use as they learn proper shop habits and power tool safety by making bird houses and the like. I would also recommend it if you are just exploring scroll saw work as a hobby, but are not hooked on it. This saw does require some care in set up and there is lots of room for tweaking to make it a better saw. But if you would rather not spend $500 (and let's face it, you have to tweak the $500 tools too), and you don't mind a bit of fussing and tweaking, this scroll saw may be perfect for you. On the other hand, if you are dedicated to becoming a scroll saw artist and devoting a substantial amount of time to that craft you probably will out grow this saw. But whatever you do, have fun with your woodworking!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for a first timer I go through more blades than I would like, but I suspect part of that is that I am new to this type of saw. It details well. Vibrates a bit more than I would like, but not terrible. My sawdust blower does work well. (Unlike some of the reviews I've read.) All in all, for what I paid, it meets my expectations and is far better than the jig saw I was using before! Oh, and I've owned and been using it for about a year now.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Entry Level Unit ... at Best As a avid ScrollSawyer I have actually had the chance to own and use one ... for 15 minutes. The only thing I can find good about the unit is it is variable speed .... though most are now. Mine broke after 10 minutes of use on 1/8" thick oak. A quality saw would eat it up! The dust port is located at the front of the saw ... why? Who wants a hose looped between them and the saw? The blade tensioner/holder has plastic parts so needless to say, it broke. There are many better saws for a fraction more $'s Move on to a better saw if you have any plans of using it more than a few minutes every once in a while. If not, you will find yourself growing tired of the saw and upgrading soon.
