Jet 727200K Scroll Saw (with Stand) Review 2021

Updated 9/24/2021

The Jet 727200K scroll saw comes with a stand. It is relatively easy to set up, and so you can have it working quickly after removing it from its box and packaging as it also comes with a blade pre-installed for you.

The Jet 727200K Scroll Saw has a very compact design, so it’s great if you are looking for a model that will not take up too much space.

This is ideal if you don’t have an entire woodworking setup and maybe just want to put this in your garage, apartment or shed area because you don’t have a ton of usable space.

Jet 727200K Scroll Saw Features

Clamps: The clamps that hold the upper blade also tensions the blade. This is done by the cam clamp, a very innovative clamp that does both things in one step. The lower blade is held with a clamp, which allows it to snap into place quickly.

To remove the lower blade, you will need tools, though – this ensures that the blade can’t slip out of place.

Table: The table is made from cast iron, ensuring that your working surface is always stable. It is comforting to know that you will only encounter minimal to no vibration and only when operating at the highest speeds. With a tilting saw head, the work table remains flat, so you have a more comfortable position to work in.

Storage: The unit features integrated storage with slots for pre-loaded blades. You can position this storage rack on either the left or the right of the scroll saw based on your preferences.

Blade Change: Blades can be changed easily thanks to the fact that the spring-loaded arm will lift to 10″ to accommodate the blade change in a comfortable position.

What We Don’t Like

  • You will need to adjust screws in the blade holders once you take the product out of the box, so it is not exactly ready to use right away.

Summary

You will love the refreshing feel of the Jet 727200K scroll saw. It is a very convenient little model.

This unit boasts a blade change system that does not require any tools, which is exceptionally suitable if you use it for multiple tasks requiring different blade sizes and strengths.

The lower blade holder will release the blade while it is still clamped in place. You can also purchase additional blade holders if you need them, which would mean you won’t have to remove the lower blade holder.

With a tilting saw head, you will have to angle the blade while the table will stay flat to work in a comfortable position.

The unit’s throat capacity is 22 inches, and it offers variable speed while allowing for up to 40 degrees of tilt on the left and 45 degrees on the right.

Comparison

The Jet 727200K scroll saw compares very well with other scroll saws on the market. It is quieter and creates less vibration while allowing for far easier blade changes than other models.

The saw head tilts to varying degrees on both left and right sides, which is a nice little feature to ensure your comfort while using the Jet 72700K scroll saw.

It is also sturdy. With a metal housing, you can easily attach a metallic light source so you can work in dimly lit conditions or on more intricate projects where additional light may be necessary.

Our Verdict

The Jet 727200K scroll saw is an excellent option if you are in the market for something that will not vibrate a lot. It comes with a stand, so you don’t have to have a dedicated woodworking table to use this model.

It comes with a five-year warranty, which shows us that this company stands behind their product. So you can purchase it with confidence!

It comes with all you need to get started working right away- even a blade already fitted when you take it out of the box! So we highly recommend it for you to use in your woodworking endeavors.
