A scroll saw is an electric saw useful for cutting intricate curves where a jigsaw or coping saw is not appropriate. It is somewhat similar to a band saw, but the bandsaw’s blade is a continuous loop. Scroll saws use saw blades similar to those used by coping saws and operate through a quick reciprocating up and down motion. This is probably one of the safest tools we buy, but still there are a few cautionary steps we should take! To avoid accidents, the following operational safety rules must be observed by everyone working on the VHS Scroll Saw. Failure to follow the safety rules will result in a loss of shop privileges.
