Default Knew Concept Power (Scroll) Saw $2100

Ran across this "scroll saw" on the RioGrande.com website. What makes it so expensive? I guess it is aimed a jewelers, and they are used to paying out the . . . kazoo. It does have a few cool features, one of which is that it "uses the full blade." It's top speed is 160 spm, which is pretty slow, even for some coin work I would think. I think my EX and Hegners have nothing to worry about.

Says on the website about how it automatically stops if the blade breaks ... I could see where that would be appealing. However I'm with you I'm not sure if that's worth it

They have the blade lubricant you have been asking about.

But it would almost be overkill for your postal stamps, Carter.

Looks like it is modeled after an Eclipse. But why $350 more other than made for Jewlers.
