Remember when your scroll saw could cut in 2 different directions. Take on the most intricate and artful cuts with the WEN 16 in. Variable Speed 2-Direction Scroll Saw. The 9/16 in. stroke saws through hard woods up to 2 in. T. Adjust the speed anywhere from 550 to 1600 strokes per minute with the simple turn of a knob. The cast iron base prevents vibration and walking during operation while the spacious 16 in. x 10 in. table bevels up to 45 for angled cut. The adjustable air pump clears saw dust from your work area to give you a clear line of vision as you cut. This combined with the 1-1/2 in. dust port keep your work area clean so you can focus on your woodworking. The saw also includes a hold-down foot clamp for securing your project in place along with a flexible work light that bends and adjusts to whatever position your heart desires. This unique blade holder accepts both pinned and pinless blades while also allowing users to change the direction of their cut to accommodate their particular workpiece. for pinned blades, simply pop the pins out of the front holder and turn the blade 90. Now, your cuts are no longer confined by the 16 in. throat of the scroll saw. On top of that, our removable pinless blade holder design tightly grips blades to prevent them from coming loose during operation. Onboard blade and holder storage creates simple organization solutions between jobs.

I have had this Saw for about a week now. Gave it a real test cutting 3/4 inch pine into yard ornaments. It handled the curves very well. Would recommend it to everyone looking for a nice saw to do scrolling.

Saw works great! Really like the variable speed control as it allows to cut soft, thin balsa without tearing it up. 1/4 inch plywood is a breeze with the higher speed. The dust blower is adequate and the work hold down is adjustable to obtain the correct pressure on the work piece. Have noticed that the center piece is a bit lower than the table as noted in other reviews. This can be fixed by laying a piece of material (thin cardboard or other product) under the piece. The vacuum attachment is nice!

I am now on my 3rd Wen scroll saw... my 1st one was destroyed in wildfire, so when it was time for me to replace my tools & saws, I compared all my options & primarily due to the price point, I went with a very similar Wen model to the one I already had experience with. My 2nd one, the rear tension knob came completely out during normal use, after only having it a short time & was not repairable, so that one got returned to the store. I am now on #3 and so far, it is functioning well, I can only hope this one holds up better than the previous one.
The good - I have tried other scroll saws, some higher end (belonging to a friend) & others of similar price range from a different mfr, that I was less pleased with. For the price range, this has been one of the better scroll saws as long as it continues to work properly. This is a case where you get what you pay for, if I could afford a higher end scroll saw, I would probably move on to a higher end, but for now, this has been the best bang for my buck & a relatively good beginner scroll saw.
As with most scroll saws, there is still a lot of vibration & you will definitely want the saw mounted in some way... that can present a challenge depending on your working surface. I had my previous Wen saw mounted directly to a wood table that allowed for the application of screws. My current work table is metal & drilling holes for mounting is a challenge. I attempted using a rubber mat to keep it from sliding, however, that did not work. I came up with a solution of using heavy duty velcro type mounting tape & it is working great, no movement now.
I like the light feature that doesn't come with many other scroll saw's, I just wish it was a bit brighter & I have still found need to add additional light if I do not have full daylight to work in.
Blade changes take some practice & experience, but gets easier over time once you figure it out. If you're new to a scroll saw, anticipate some frustration until you get the hang of it.
The bad - other than my 2nd Wen saw coming apart on me after only using a few times, the "air pump" that is supposed to blow away dust as you saw, is a joke! It really doesn't blow anything & was more in the way than anything, so I eventually just removed the rubber attachment that kept getting caught up in my wood pieces, as I continually have to just keep blowing wood dust away myself to see what I'm cutting. The dust port that is intended to connect to a shop vac is directly in front of you & although I have a shop vac, I don't bother to connect it because it would be more in my way & cumbersome. You will get covered in sawdust but that is the nature of woodworking.

I'm very happy with this WEN scroll saw. I have never used a scroll saw before but something I've always wanted to have for my crafting of wood plaques. So, my first try out-----it turned out great.
The instructions to setup the saw were easy to follow and easy to do.
I found very little vibration with the saw. In fact I only had mine sitting on a metal work bench (not screwed in). I didn't experience any shifting or movement of the saw. I will say, the owners guide recommends adhering the saw to the work surface.
I also, think the saw was pretty quiet.
As I said, I've never used a scroll saw before and while I agree there's a learning curve using it (as stated in the instructions), I was successful in cutting out a 6" x 3" seashell pattern from 1/2" plywood, without breaking the blade. My pattern had one sharp turn and a bunch of curves. It took me about 10 minutes to cut out the shell. I don't know whether that's a reasonable amount of time or a long time, though.
I'm very happy with this WEN saw and the results it produced.

EASY-to-USE; VERSATILE; WELL-DESIGNED — The WEN 16-inch Variable Speed Scroll Saw is appropriate for both novice and experienced users. It has many features which make it easy and fun to use. I had never used a scroll saw before, only saber saws and coping saws. This scroll saw comes with excellent, illustrated instructions so it was easy to get started even though I was inexperienced in using such saws. It makes cutting patterns so much easier. It did take me a little practice before I became proficient at cutting curves. I used the saw to cope a piece of baseboard to fit into a corner. Since the table tilts, I was able to get the angle slightly less than 90 degrees so that the piece fit perfectly. It took much longer to get such a piece right with a coping saw. This saw is well-designed so that all the controls and adjustments are easy to locate and use. The most useful feature for me is the adjustable air port which cleared the saw dust from my cut line. I used the saw blade that came installed with the saw. Since it did not break, I did not need to change saw blades. The dust port fits my shop vacuum perfectly. The saw has a drop down side panel to store extra blades and the Allen wrench. The saw which has a two-year warranty is made in China.

This WEN variable speed scroll saw is a great addition to my woodshop. It allows me to produce creative wood projects that are impossible to produce using other power saws. It’s inexpensive and has many features found in other saws costing two or three times as much. It has a 9/16 inch stroke and cuts through 2 inch thick hard woods quickly and easily. The motor speed can be simply adjusted with the turn of a knob. Blade changes are quick and easy thanks to a fold-down side panel and require no tools. Not all was well with this saw. WEN, if you’re listening, all three of the base hold down screw holes are partially blocked by a part of the saw, making a straight shot with a driver impossible. This issue could have been avoided with some engineering forethought.

I have used a portable jigsaw for curved and interior wood cuts for many years, but those days are over. This bench mounted scroll saw allows me to move the woodwork instead of moving my jigsaw, and this allows far more accuracy in both edge and interior wood cuts. The 16" arm clearance and 16"X10" work table size have proved quite adequate. I also really like the integrated air pump that keeps my work area clear while I am cutting. The controls on the saw which allow on/off operation, making angle cuts (up to 45 degrees), tightening the blade, and changing strokes per minute (550 to 1600 strokes/min) are well placed and easy to use. Removing or replacing the blade for doing inside the woodwork scrolling, (or just changing the pinned or pinless blades) is done easily without needing tools. Three blades are included. Using only 1.2 amps it plugs in to my standard workbench outlet and is ecologically friendly. I have not used it to cut thicker wood but it nice to know it will cut up to 2" vertically. I had become fairly proficient with my jigsaw but this is making my wood scrolling both easier and more accurate. It is a very welcome addition to my garage.

One very handy little saw. For years I have been putting off getting a scroll saw, trying to compensate by making several cuts with a band saw and then filing something to final size. No more. With the WEN scroll saw, now I can cut circles, odd shapes, wood, plastic, or metal, at even acute angles without having to make continuous cuts or final manual shaping to fit my project. The saw comes completely assembled. After a few minor tweaks to ensure the table was level and square to the blade, adjusting the blade guard foot, and the sawdust blower, she was ready to go. The variable speed is also handy, depending upon the thickness and material you’re working with and it comes packaged with three blades.

Excellent scroll saw for the money.
Set up was quick & easy. Just make sure the blade is at a true 90° to the table before starting. The bendable air hose is great to keep the sawdust away from the work area. Saw is small enough to be easily portable but I would suggest mounting it to a 3/4" or 1" thick piece of plywood as it does vibrate at high speeds and will move across the table if not attached.
