The scroll saw is available in two models. One can be installed at the power mount end of the Mark V (Figure 15-1) and the other is a freestanding unit with a separate motor and stand (Figure 15-2). To set up your scroll saw, follow the instructions in the Owners Manual that came with your scroll saw.

Important features and capacities of the two scroll saw models are:

  • With the proper blade installed, the scroll saw will cut stock up to 2" thick.
  • It has a throat depth of 20" which means you can cut to the center of a 40" wide workpiece.
  • The blade mounting blocks will accept blades ranging from 1/4" wide (very heavy) to 6/0 (very fine). The stroke of the blade is 1-3/32".
