Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Saw! Excellent table top saw, really happy with the build quality. First tried the Wen model but wasn’t at all happy and returned it. I’m so happy I ordered this one, it works great and it’s a good size for a smaller shop. I did purchase Olsen blades for it - in fact be aware that the Ryobi scroll saw blades from Home Depot don’t actually fit this saw - I had to return those. But the Olsen blades are a perfect fit and great quality with lots of options available. I chose the 5” pin end blades and have had no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scie à chantourner. Stable, peu vibreuse (la base est en fonte) fonctionne très bien. Seuil inconvénient, le changement de lame demande un peu de dextérité, mais ce n'est pas un handicap. En résumé, c'est un beau compromis ($) entre les modèles bas de gammes et haut de gammes. J'en suis satisfait et la recommande. Note, je suis un bricoleur, pas un pro de la scie à chantourner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makita scroll saw Needed to spend some time getting to know how to get the best performance out of it; putting blades through drilled holes in 1.5 inch wood, learning how best to position the attachments, and how best to change the blades faster, were some of the challenges to overcome. However, eight weeks later, I have nothing but praise for the way it performs! Very good investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall Happy With Purchase It is my first scroll saw. Overall I am happy with it as it does what I need it to do. One complaint is it takes a bit of time to change the pinned blades. I haven't tried unpinned blades which might be faster but you still need the allen key.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Superb value The only star short of 5 is because the little blower doesn’t do it’s job, but this saw is great value which is what I expected for a makita product.

This saw says variable speed in description but in specs says there is one speed. Which is correct ?

Asked by: Gerry
It is variable speed

I see the other scroll saws are 16 inch scroll saws and this is listed as a 5 inch which sounds incredibly small to me. :) How large a piece of wood can I actually use comfortably with this saw?

Asked by: Didi
Almost all scroll saws use 5" blades, either pinned, pinless, or both. Why makita labels this as a 5" is unknown. The normal sizing sysem for scroll saws is the depth between the inside of the "C" shaped frame and the blade (the widest distance you can get from the edge of a piece of wood). As for thickness, most saws can handle up to 1.5" thick, but they might struggle with material that thick. Generally, anything over an inch thick is getting into bandsaw or jigsaw territory. It CAN be cut, but it's not ideal.
