Hi, I'm Ed Reyes with Master Builders here in Tampa, Florida on behalf of Expert Village to teach you the proper use of an electric scroll saw. Now with this machine, I can make any design I want on this wood and that blade will cut that angle. Basically you turn the machine on and set it on high and I cut right where my pencil mark was. So you can get any design you want, as intricate as you want, as curvatures as you want, angles, 45's. This machine will do it. It is a very very intricate machine. You do not want to push the blade, you want to let the blade do the work. That is the key thing with this machine is to let the blade do the work and with time and practice, you will learn how to feel the lumber to know when to turn it and when the blade is being stressed too much. You will learn to feel those things as you practice. So the best thing you can do is practice with a bunch of little lumber until you are ready to do the project you want. As time goes by, you will learn how to make very intricate cuts and follow exactly where your lines are so there is no guesswork involved. Just be very careful with the saw, keep your fingers away from the blade and you will have a great time with this tool.
