Answer: 
I would not recommend this saw for cutting metal - the supplied blade is somewhere around 20 teeth per inch, and you would need a higher tooth count to cut metal accurately.

YES YOU CAT CUT NON-FERRUS WITH YOUR SAW BUT DEPENTING ON THE THICKNESS YOU WILL HAVE SLOW THE CUTTING SPEED OF YOUR SAW ALSO THE HEAVIER TYPE OF BLADES ARE RECOMMENDED. ALSO YOU SHOULD EXPECT SHARP EDGES AROUND CUT AREAS. I AN NOT FAMILER WITH GAGE THICKNESS BUT ANYTHING THICKER THAN 1/8 INCH WOULD BE VERY SLOW AND COULD CAUSE OVER HEATING OF THE BLADE AND MOTOR. TRY TO LIMIT IT TO NO THICKER THAN A CD Read More

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. We recommend that you firmly clamp or bolt the scroll saw to a stable, level workbench or table. There should not be excessive vibration.

When you release the balde at the top does the bottom hold the blade in place

I'm wondering when you have to feed the blade through a drilled hole does the bottom stay in place or do you have to pull tension on it. I would p refer to be able to move from drilled hole to drilled hole easily without having to replace the blade at the bottom and top.

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Both the upper and lower blade holder hold the blade in place. If you remove the top of the blade you would also have to remove the bottom of the blade.

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice and quiet scroll saw Minimal assembly was required. It is easy to change blades, or to pop one end of th blade free for insertion into a drilled hole for enclosed cuts. The variable speed feature is really nice and gives you better control over your cut. Intricate cuttings are a snap as evicenced by the fire axe, ladder, and pike pole on the bird house I made. The only down side is that after a couple of days use the bolt connecting the eccentric from the motor to the arm that moves the blade came loose and the saw wouldn't work. It was a easy enough fix to get an Allen wrench in there and reattach the nut to the bolt. I didn't even consider sending the unit back for warranty work. April 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works very well, smooth cutting and quiet I bought this Friday and immediately put it to use building a biplane for my youngest grandson. It makes very smooth cuts and has minimal vibration. Much improvement from my last scroll saw. April 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Scrolling is Adictive. Fun Saw This is my first Scroll Saw and I love it already. Before unboxing I read some reviews and was a little nervous that there may be more to setup than just switching a blade. It comes together easy and in my opinion does not need to be mounted on anything. The only thing you need is a combination square to make sure the blade and the cutting surface are square. I got started right away, I did like the variable speed knob although I was not quite sure when to use the fast or slow speed but it was addictive once I got going. My first project was a snowflake ornament I made with my son. (I have included a picture of it in this review) I think it came out pretty good and can't wait to get better at scrolling. Things I liked: The light The saw came with two blades The ease of switching the blades How easy it was to use right away December 7, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for detail cuts This little scroll saw does a great job on very fine, detailed cuts. It comes completely assembled, including the blade which was pre-tensioned correctly. There was also an extra blade in the box, which can be stored on the side of the saw in a little compartment so you always have extras. There is a built-in tube for blowing dust out of the working space, that can be hooked up to an air source (not included). There is also a way to hook up a vacuum to reduce dust. The built-in light is positionable, but only turns on when the saw itself is on. It would be nice to be able to keep the light on the whole time you are working, because most of the work is fine details. The light also moves quite a bit when the saw is on but still helps. The table was not set exactly to zero when it arrived, but we just used a torpedo level to set zero to be exactly horizontal. There is a little screw to adjust the angle finder (see picture). Also the screw that holds the top metal guide piece comes loose pretty easily, so watch that your metal guide piece doesn't migrate into the blade. Maybe a lock washer here would keep the screw from coming loose. We were able to do detailed cuts in 1/2" plywood, and 2" solid hardwood. Very happy with the cut quality, even in the thick wood. It is easy to tension the blade as needed, just be careful not to over-tighten it. Overall very satisfied with this scroll saw. Seems to be very well built, and should last a long time if taken care of. December 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product with many uses Excellent product easy to use very little set up. Packed well therefore no damage. Blade change very easy and is strong enough to do all I need November 14, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Let the buyer beware! This product is advertised as using "pinned or non-pinned" blades. I have used it a few times with pinned blades, but I recently found a unique design blade that happens to be non-pinned, so I bought it hoping to increase the versatility of my saw. Try as I may, I was not able to get the non-pinned blade to tighten in my saw. Expecting user error, I called the customer service line, and was assured that the saw did in fact use either type of blade, but since I was having trouble, I was transferred to a service tech, Rick. Rick proceeded to tell me that this model was not very good with non-pinned blades, since it had only thumb screws to tighten the blade. I explained that the thumb screws did not even touch the blade, much less hold it. He further commented that the old style that tightened with an allen wrench were more effective, and suggested that I use pliers to adjust the part that is supposed to hold the blade. I further explained the problem, and he had no suggestions except to buy only pinned blades for this model of saw!!! October 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice saw. Easy to use. Cuts well with low vibration and low noise. This 16-inch scroll saw from Skil comes fully assembled and is ready-to-use straight out of the box. A large, easy-to-locate on/off toggle switch in the front provides power and safety in case the saw needs to be powered down in a hurry. The adjustable blade guide helps to hold wood (up to 2-in. thick) in place and reduce vibration as well as to ensure that fingers are kept a safe distance from the saw blade, while allowing the work to be manipulated without visible obstruction. Also included in the box is an instruction manual, a standard saw blade (pre-installed) and a fine tooth saw blade, which can be stored in the convenient on-board compartment when not in use. The saw runs whisper quiet with little vibration at its lowest setting, allowing you to hold a conversation comfortably while working, but gets progressively more audible and produces more vibration as the volume of speed is increased. An adjustable-flexible LED lamp can be manipulated to illuminate your work space. While the lamp did vibrate at the higher speed settings, the light stayed focused on the work while the saw was in operation. The LED doesn’t throw much light and the beam is narrow, but the concentrated lumens are enough to be useful. Unlike other saws, scroll saws allow you to make intricate cuts, cuts at 90-degree angles and up to 45-degree bevel cuts. Pierce cuts are also possible by removing the blade and reinstalling it through your work. I’m admittedly not all that proficient with a scroll saw, lacking a lot of experience with using one, but was able to cut along my guide mark to make an intricate squiggle cut in a ¾-in. thick piece of pine trim board. The blade left a clean cut which required very little sanding. The settings also remained true and didn’t vibrate loose or require readjustment. This saw is ideal for finely detailed woodworking and art projects that are too intricate or involve cuts that are beyond the capabilities, or which cannot be easily achieved, by use of other saws. You could try to substitute a jig saw in place of a scroll saw, but my experience with jig saws is that they vibrate way too much, especially with stock thinner than ½-inch thickness, and require one hand to operate the saw while the other attempts to hold the work. The results with a jig saw wouldn’t be nearly as good as with a scroll saw. The construction of this saw is mostly aluminum, including the deck, which tends to scratch easily as you rotate material around the deck surface. Other parts are steel with knobs made of plastic, which will hold up over time if not over-tightened. At the base of the saw, near the controls at front, is a dust port for connection to a standard 1-1/4-inch shop vacuum hose to take saw dust out of your way. The pine trim board I was cutting produced a fair amount of fine saw dust, which was picked up and taken away by my shop-vac. My shop vac has a 2-1/2-inch diameter hose, so a reducer-adapter was necessary to make the connection. While I’m fairly content with this Skil scroll saw, as I removed the saw from its protective plastic, I noticed the welds on the saw’s upper arm were a bit crude in that file marks where welds were ground down were visible through the painted surface. This doesn’t affect performance, and is merely cosmetic, but I was surprised to see such a poor finish and felt it was worth noting. Overall, I think this a nice saw with a lot of good and thoughtful features. December 5, 2013
