Many companies make them including Excalibur, RBI, Hegner, DeWalt, Delta, Dremel, Craftsman, Ryobi, and Eclipse. They are typically used at home, at construction sites, at lumber yards, at stores like Home Depot and Lowes, by contractors, by carpenters, and in many other industries.

Scroll Saw: Definition & Common Types
Scroll saws cut using a reciprocating up and down motion from their saw small-width blades. They typically have fine teeth and can be used to cut quick and accurate dovetail joints, edges, and intricate curves. They are differentiated by their throat or the distance between the blade and rear frame of the saw. Scroll saws mainly vary between 12 inch and 30-inch throats with the larger sizes allowing for larger projects to be done.
Scroll saws use a variety of blades. The most common ones have skipped tooth blades, double skip tooth blades, crown blades, two-way blades, spiral blades, metal cutting blades, and diamond blades. Most scroll saws have the typical c-arm and parallel arm. The blades move either with the help of constant tension or the pitman’s arms. Though some consider scroll saws only for fine projects, most can be used on wood up to two inches in height. Some of the types of scroll saw work that can be done include fretwork, marquetry, and intarsia.
