New JET 18-inch Scroll Saw Features One-Step Blade Change/Tensioning

Jet just announced their new 18-inch Scroll Saw featuring a patent-pending one-step blade change and tensioning process.

The new scroll saw’s other features include an easily removable lower blade holder; extra-large, slotted table; 18-in. throat capacity; and top-lift, spring-loaded arm. It’s a great choice for ornamental woodworkers, furniture makers, toy makers, crafters, hobbyists and do-it-yourselfers that want to create detailed intricate cuts similar to what you can do with a jigsaw or bandsaw but at a much smaller scale and tighter turns.

La Vergne, TN – The new JET ® 18 in. Scroll Saw features an exclusive upper blade mechanism that speeds setup by combining blade clamping and tensioning into one simple step. This latest addition to JET’s scroll saw line-up also provides an easily removable lower blade holder; extra-large, slotted table; 18-in. throat capacity; and top- lift, spring-loaded arm.

“Our new, aggressively priced, 18 in. scroll saw is loaded with special features designed to improve efficiency and productivity,” said Tobias Bridges, JET Director of Product Management-Woodworking. “Its patent-pending, one-step, blade-change process and other innovations make it a great choice for ornamental woodworkers, furniture makers, toy makers, crafters, hobbyists and do-it-yourselfers.”

The new scroll saw’s tool-less, lower blade holder is removable and the slotted table makes blade changes quick and easy. Also, the base of the saw has a built-in wrench for quickly installing blades into the holder.

The JET 18 in. Scroll Saw has an 11-5/8 in. x 21 in., precision-ground, steel table that provides a stable work surface with limited vibration. The saw’s 18-in. throat capacity provides ample depth to accommodate large workpieces. Its top-lift, spring-loaded arm raises 10 in. and stays up until pulled back down. The arm tilts 45º right and 30º left, while the table remains flat for better control of the workpiece.

A removable, 1-1/2 in. dust port collects dust and chips at the source. The saw also has an integrated blower to clear the work and increase cutline visibility.

The 18 in. scroll saw has a variable speed range of 400-1550 strokes-per-minute (spm) and is powered by a 50 watt, 120 volt, 1.3 amp induction motor.

Optional accessories include a stand (727300S, $99.99) and foot switch (JWSS22B, $39.99).

The JET 18 in. Scroll Saw is CSA certified. It is covered by a 5 year warranty, as well as JET RED Assurance TM , the industry’s most dependable service and support guarantee.
