We have several electrical scrollsaws. One is usually sitting in the woodshop on the bench. The others are usually on top of the cupboard in the metal working area or near the toilets.

We do not yet have a fixed places for the replacement saw blades.



Blades break easily; spare ones cost around a 5 for a pack of 10 or so.

If you need blades for them - you typically want the `figuurzaag met dwarsstift’; [Hartwijk] usually have them as to some of the local builders markets (Gamma).

figuurzaag met stift

One of the machines will take a normal (without pin) saw blade. [Hartwijk] and the local builder shops almost always have them.

You generally want the right type for wood, metal or whatever you are sawing. See [this site] for an overview.

There is currently not a fixed place where we keep the blades. In fact - we're probably right out of them.

If you want to be re-imbursed; keep the receipt & tell the mailing lists that you've bought them.


These machines are for wood and metal; but acrylic and similar materials work fine.

Metal use

Do not use the machine in the woodshop for metal (to avoid contaminating the wood with oil and filing; this ruining peoples lacquer). Instead take one of the other machines to the metal shop and use it there.
