Scroll Saw Safety

Scroll Saw

The CEDE model shop is equipped with two Delta 18 variable speed scroll saws. These saws are designed for cutting wood, metal, plastic, and compositions. Handy fingertip blade tensioning control assures longer blade life and minimizes blade breakage. The scroll saw has an integral wrench and blade holder for extra convenience. This piece of equipment has a blade guard used to support the material. The blade of the scroll saw is designed to cut on the downward stoke, and the saw blade itself should be mounted with the teeth pointing downwards. For the Delta scroll saw maximum cutting height is 1 inch.
