The Porter Cable variable speed scroll saw is a versatile, lightweight, and handy addition to any woodworking shop. Features: Large aluminum hexagonal panels with 6 large work-free polycarbonate veneers. The outer veneer layer is non-skid and is designed to withstand high impact and wear. Two interlock-locking aluminum ratchet straps with ball bearing clamps provide a secure and solid grip. The large flat panel is easy to see through and brightens up your shop. Two heavy-duty corded aluminum stands on each side of the panel to provide support and a way to store and carry your instrument.
Features: The patented Flip-Top Speed Control allows for precise bevel up to 90 degrees. Patented dual tilting tabletop bevel cut up to 45 degrees provides for precise and efficient read-outs. Easily visible through bright polycarbonate display panel, tool-less blade guard provides for simple and quick blade changes. Built-in adjustable LEDs make it easy to see in dark conditions. Three heavy-duty steel corded stands on each side of the display panel for sturdy support.
The variable speed machine is extremely smooth. There is no sudden jerk or stutter as the motor spins up and down quickly. The blade locks up at different speeds for extra accuracy. The variable speed is quiet under optimum use and is easy to operate with the push of a button.
Versatile: Whether you’re a seasoned woodworker or just beginning, the Porter Cable variable speed scroll saw is a versatile woodworking machine that can handle both home and professional projects. The precision engineering of the motor allows it to run both slowly and quickly, or as fast as needed for any specific project. Speed varies by interchangeable slides on the top of the unit. Slip the slides to regulate the speed and cutting depth of the woodworking project you’re working on. Ideal for light duty and small projects, the variable speed makes this saw suited for many different woodworking applications.
Versatile in other ways as well: The Cable variable speed scroll saw comes in two models, each with its own unique specifications. The Standard version is ideal for woodworking applications needing standard sizes of wood, while the Versa-Max version is designed to cut larger diameter wood using a larger than usual diamond cutter. The Versa-Max model is also portable and can handle larger pieces of wood. Each model comes standard with a one-year limited warranty.
Versatile for the job at hand: For professional carpenters and similar skilled workers, the Porter Cable variable speed scroll saw is an invaluable tool. As a table saw, it provides precise cuts on both sides of the piece of wood, which eliminates the need for ripping or crosscutting the material during the procedure. Many saws require you to rip each piece from the end and crosscut it, but with the Porter Cable it is simple to flip the blade over and simply rip the material evenly, rather than repeatedly crosscutting. This makes the Porter Cable perfect for woodturners and similar professionals who need a portable, lightweight option.
Versatile for do-it-yourselfers as well: Variable speed scroll saws are very popular among do-it-yourselfers, since they allow the user to run the saw at whatever speed they choose, which allows them to complete the project much faster. Using a Porter Cable speed scroll saw allows a woodturner to complete their work in half the time and allows them to complete several pieces of wood with very little effort. Because the blade is always fixed in the saw, users have the ability to quickly change blades without having to remove and re-chop the wood to remove the blade. In addition, because the blade is always at the correct speed, the user is able to work more easily and accurately because the scroll saw does not need the operator to compensate for slower speeds.
Whether you are a professional woodturner or a do-it-yourselfer looking to make your own repairs and do projects around the house, the Porter Cable scroll saw is a versatile option. Many saws will require that you rip wood in crosscutters, but the Porter Cable will allow you to rip wood in the same way that a shredder would. With a larger blade and modern technology, the speed varies depending on the job at hand, so there are many more options available than with other scroll saws. Another great feature is that because it uses a pinion and counterbalance system, there is no need to worry about vibration or shock when operating this machine. Regardless of what you are doing, the Porter Cable is an excellent option.
