    i have a question
    it's about my scroll saw
    i have the same Einhell as artons
    is it normal that the blade's position is like this Foto0839.jpg

    Foto0843.jpg

    Re

    Can you take out that black round plate,
    turn it 90° counterclockwise and put it back in?

    looks like that would suffice...

    Or maybe even clockwise??!
    then the blade could move sidewards when under charge..

    close to the edge sounds better
    than sawing that plate when
    turning the saw on..

    i'm using the blade in this way from july and i haven't problems for the moment.
    i guess you can turn it but i've never tried it, i only adjust the tension on the blade for not touching the back and slowly cut the wood.
    this isn't a bandsaw, it's a lot more slow, especially when you're trying to cut 3cm of hard wood, but you can make more precise cut and curves with it.
    i hope i've been helpful :)

    I used a piece of 3mm polycarbonate to make an insert for my scroll saw. The one it came with had a huge slot like yours and it lets thin material flex too much. Not a problem with wood...but I cut a lot of bendy materials. Not hard to make an insert...just use the OEM one for a pattern (can cut it out on the scroll saw :eek: ). I like the blade to run right in a small channel.
