What can you do on a Scrollsaw?

Simple scroll saw projects are a fantastic introduction for students who are proficient using a drill and other hand tools and are ready to start learning safety and how to use powered saws.

When it comes to making intricate designs, cutting curves, or working with wood, plastic and metal materials, the scroll saw shines.  Some of the more popular types of projects that students and woodworkers find a scroll saw useful for are:

Intarsia

Inlay

Fretwork

Marquetry

Jigsaw puzzles

3D puzzles

Toys and games

The market-leading Hegner scrollsaw range provides the highest quality, highest precision machinery in the scrollsaw market. Renowned for impeccable workmanship, Hegner scrollsaws have been designed to last, so our scrollsaws give you the confidence you need to be sure that your equipment will not let you down.

TOP TIP!

Blade selection is the key. When sawing both hardwoods and softwoods up to 1 inch thick, select a reverse skip-tooth blade.  The best size to use is No. 5 scroll saw blade.  The 12 teeth per inch and the reverse skip-tooth design on the blade will ensure smooth, even cuts without splitting or chipping in the edges.

Put your students’ skills to the test

These simple hand tool competency tests allow teachers to assess the ability and safety of students using coping saws, scroll saws, and drills.
