    Looks like it would do it. It says it can handle solid wood to 50mm, so 18mm plex shouldn't be an issue. Granted, I've not seen that unit before so I can't say for sure.

    Concerning the thread title:

    Scroll saw?

    The answer is simple: HEGNER!

    http://www.ebay.de/itm/HEGNER-Multi...mwerker_Elektrowerkzeuge_&hash=item33899477e2

    with speed adjustment:

    http://www.ebay.de/itm/HEGNER-Multi...mwerker_Elektrowerkzeuge_&hash=item33899477e2


    Weichholz: Wood: 65 mm
    Hartholz: Hardwood 50 mm
    Aluminium, Kupfer, Messing: Copper, Brass 15 mm
    Kunststoff (Plexiglas): 15 mm

    This might sound "off limits" concerning prices!

    BUT:

    You will never regret buying one of those!- You could sell it after 20 years
    for almost what you paid for it.

    Plus: IT WOULD BE THE LAST SCROLLSAW YOU BUY IN YOUR LIFE!

    Honestly!

    P.s.:

    This auction ends on Sunday, 18:00h.. (the only one I found for sale...):

    260 km was a little bit too far...
    I think I will buy a band saw.

    85 watts?
    thats some low energy usage. Are scroll saws so energy efficient? Never used one .

    Hey TAOW,

    I really like you channel. I saw your vid with you scroll saw. Nice thing, but quite expensive. A einhell bt-sb 200 (band saw) costs about honderd euro's here. I think I will go for that one.

    John, I've got no idea about the power.

    You won't be as happy with a bandsaw, it will never turn corners as well as a scrollsaw. A cheap scrollsaw will cut just fine with good blades.

    Dolo is absolutely right! If you want precision cutting and ability to cut tiny radius and corners, a scrollsaw is the best way to go. I have the Ryobi 16" variable speed from Home Depot and have put it through the paces hard for the last year and still running strong. I even cut some 1/8" aluminum with it but that is rough going...

    I had to throw away an old scroll saw when I moved. It needed to be repaired, can't remember why, but too much weight to ship with the moving company.

    Now it's among the items i wish i still had.

    I can always clamp my saber saw under a makeshift table.
     
  14. i managed to get it for £80 in the Christmas sail !!!! :)
    also i will find the scroll saw more useful than a band saw because it can cut sharp corners :)

    My delta 15'' from 1991 has been used on 1/4'' oak up to 5/4 purpleheart as well as 1/4'' aluminum, which was a bit abusive. I found out after I was done that a #7 ultra reverse blade works better than an aluminum cutter blade, go figure.

    I don't know which to buy now. I like to make tight curves, but sawing in a natural can be helpful. Also I read that the blades of the scroll saw are more likely to break quicker what can bring extra costs.

    The blades on a scrollsaw go for cheap, 12 for 3USD, bandsaw blades are much more but do last longer by far.

    Hi,
    here a fine vid to make the choice easier. ;)

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXW55S4X9zo"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXW55S4X9zo[/ame]

    Here I just wrote some tips for using the bandsaw (in German).

    I am a bandsaw user and love this machines for their versatility and smooth running.
