Small Size, Big Features
Cramped for space? If so, this new compact scroll saw
from General International may be just the answer. The
Excalibur EX-16 will easily store on a shelf—it’s only 15"
wide, 27" deep and 17" high. Full-size Excalibur scroll saws
are well-known for their excellent performance; the new
EX-16 meets the same standards.
Like its larger cousins, the EX-16’s head tilts, not the
table. That’s a real advantage. Your workpiece stays level,
giving you better control for intricate cuts. The EX-16 also
utilizes a parallel-link arm to minimize vibration. The
larger Excaliburs have the same type of arm.
This saw has a 16" throat capacity and a maximum
cutting depth of 2". Its table is 12" wide by 18-1/2" deep.
The blade tilts up to 45° in either direction. The motor has
a variable speed control, going from 400 to 1400 strokes
Blade changes are toolless, and speed and tension controls
are conveniently located. An onboard dust blower keeps the blade clean and the work surface clear of dust, so
you see precisely where you’re cutting.
