Rated 3 out of 5 by Seen better Was looking forward to this saw because have bought titan before. However very disappointed in the blower which hardly blew at all, also fitting pinless blades are fiddly and frustrating. No scews came with saw for fitting them. But at the end of the day does the job. 10 Jun 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, but has minor issues Long detailed review ahead (tl;dr... buy one it's good)... Useful info that the manual doesn't tell you about this great tool... 1. The blade quick-release handle is ALSO the tension fine-tuning control. It spins around (righty-tighty) when clamped down to allow you to get the high pitch note on the blade when you pluck it. This is a really cool feature and is nowhere to be found in the manual. 2. There is a rigid carry handle on the "arch" of the saw that works perfectly as a lifting point (there's a rubber hand grip on there). It's a heavy sucker so you'll appreciate that handle. It's probably a 2-man lift for most mortals. Pros: + Comes fully assembled (apart from the rubber feet and the rotary tool) + Solidly built - cast iron (?) base is nice and heavy to absorb vibrations when you install the rubber feet. + Takes BOTH pin-end and screw clamp (normal) blades + Pretty quiet even at full speed + Soft start/stop is pleasant to use but I do not know if this saw is compatible with a foot pedal. + Pin-end blade comes pre-installed. It's a very thin one but is quite reluctant to make tight turns even in thin plywood. Standard scroll sawing techniques can see you right if you're patient. + Speed control and on/off switches are good and sturdy. You might want to cover them up with some transparent polythene bag material to keep the sawdust out of there though. Cons: + The manual is dreadfully vague on some important topics, clever types will be able to work things out. + Does not come with screws for clamping the normal (pinless) blades. The clamps are there (M4 threads I think) but you'll have to find an aftermarket thumbscrew and also a hex set screw for the lower clamp. There are no bolts provided for securing the machine to a bench either, so the manual is lying again. + The lower clamp is a pain in the bum for pinless blades, the motor has to stop in just the right spot for you to get the allen key in there. It's fantastic for pin-ended blades though. + Only comes with ONE blade. And it's a pin-end. A pack of 10 would be REALLY awesome for beginners. + The combined blower and lamp blows air like an asthmatic gerbil and the LED failed after 10 minutes. Neither of these things bother me very much but it's not like you're paying a lot for this tool. These failures are not something I would send this back to the factory for. Overall remarks: I'm very pleased with the solidness of this product. I am using it free-standing on my metal framed bench in my garage in the suburbs. With my garage door shut, from outside it sounds like a washing machine in the distance - not even remotely a sound that will annoy the neighbours -- fantastic! For this money you will not get a better scroll saw. Despite it's minor issues I'm totally happy with it. I was up and cutting within 5 minutes of unsealing the box. A good saw for a novice or casual hobbyist. 28 May 2016
Rated 1 out of 5 by Close but no cigar The design is flawed by the fact that you can not access the lower blade holder which renders changing the blade a major task. The size of the blade is not standard for pin blades and the non pin blades recommended on the website can not be fitted. The manual is practically useless as it does not show enough detail or say how to access the lower blade holder and whilst this machine should be fantastic, a brilliant design concept, it fails because of the lack basic practicality. DO NOT BUY IT 4 May 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by great piece of kit!! Great saw. Bought this to cut out some lettering in wood for a personalised box. No faults with it at all! Would defo recommend! 4 Mar 2016

Manual states that: "This scroll saw accepts 5 inch length pin-end AND PINLESS blades." page 16 of the 'getting started manual'
However, there does not appear to be any hardware to facilitate pinless blades and also there are no instructions for installing pinless blades as there is for installing the pinned type.

I thought I saw this specification in other advertising data but it seems to have been recently removed.
Also the says the table is cast iron when in fact it is made of cast aluminium.
Otherwise it it appears good value and very robustly engineered but being able to accommodate pinless blades is essential for intricate work.

Answer: 
You can fit pinless blades as I have just done so.
All you need is are couple of machine screws that fit into the threaded holes in the side of the blade holders top and bottom.
Granted it is fiddly but is ok when you get the hang of it.

Answer: 
Hi Alipan, Unfortunately this machine only accepts pin-ended blades. The instructions have been updated to reflect this. We have asked for the new instructions to be uploaded to screwfix.com.

Answer: 
Hi, it sounds as though this is a weak point on the machines as mine snapped off also. Basically the relatively thin sides cracked leaving me with a decision to either repair, make a new one or send it back. I chose to make another using hardwood. I was able to pencil the shape easy enough and then using some decent glue and strong tape managed to put the original back together and back on just long enough to cut out the new piece. The hole was easy enough and the pin slid straight in. Cutting the inside out was a bit tricky and I had to finish it with a small chisel. It has now been in place for almost a year and showing no signs of cracking. I'm going to make another now just in case.........

Answer: 
Hi
Is this the tensioner at the back of the machine ? If so mine also went days after use and Screwfix changed my machine !!

It would appear this seems to be an inherent fault with this item
