"Not Perfect Just Forgiven" Pattern plus the new Jet JWSS-22B 22" Scroll Saw

This hanging sign is 10.25 inches long.

I am getting a fair number of emails asking about the new Jet scroll saw. Model number JWSS-22B. I do not yet have any hands on knowledge of the machine. Neither has anyone emailed or called to tell me they have purchased one. I have read the sales brochure and studied the specs of the machine. It look like an interesting machine with a couple of nice new features.

Apparently the top tension lever serves two purposes. It clamps the blade and applies tension as one action. I don't think we have seen that feature in a saw before. Another feature is that the table has a slot extending to the front of the table to allow the bottom clamp and blade to be removed easily.

The saw has all the features you need but comes at a steep price. The saw runs between $900 and $1,000. The stand runs another $100. We will have to see if the machine stands up the that price point.

I will do my best to get some more feedback on this machine. It's nice to see another option to choose from.
