Hobbies has long been associated with Fretsaws from its humble beginnings in 1887 selling treadle fretsaws and lathes to the present day electrical fretsaw and scrollsaw machines.
Todays Fretsaws & Scrollsaws are easy to use and produce incredible results in a short time. Modern machines incorporate special enhancements and safety features such as quick release blade clamps, hold-down arms, lights and magnifiers etc.
Some machines take pin-end blades, some take pinless blades and a small selection will accept both types.
A great idea of 'what to buy' and 'projects to make' can be found in the book Success with Scrollsaws
In our opinion, Niqua fretsaw pin-less blades are amongst the best on the market. They are strong, sharp and long-lasting. They measure 130mm long to fit handframes, treadle fretsaws and power-driven fret machines and scrollsaws. Great for cutting wood, hardboard, plastic and most other materials.
