Power of the scroll saw Record Power SS16V

The technical specifications of the Record Power SS16V are promising. With a power output of 75 watts in the midfield of saw manufacturers and a speed of 400 to 1600 revolutions per minute, the scroll saw is a suitable tool for you to fully enthuse about filigree woodwork in the private sector.

Setting the speed

You can adjust the speed comfortably and continuously by means of a speed regulator. Based on the experiences of the customers, the device does not have to hide in comparison with other models in this respect. The handling is quite simple and easy. Even with settings in the high speed range, the machine works without vibrations. The relatively high weight ensures that the machine shows stability and does not slip away. The easy operation of the speed regulator allows you to optimally adjust the speed of your saw to your needs and the demands of your wood processing. This way you can prevent your piece of wood from being canted or frayed at the edges.

Table inclination

In contrast to the fretsaw, which you can guide yourself with your hand, the scroll saw is a so-called standing saw. This has the advantage that you have both hands free and can therefore guide the piece of wood in a targeted manner, as well as ensuring a certain stability and slip resistance. The disadvantage is that not every sawing project is possible if the individual wooden parts can only be sawed at the same angle. For this reason it is important that the saw table can be tilted at a certain angle. This allows you to saw individual parts at an angle or evenly at a pre-defined angle. For this reason, most scroll saws have an adjustable saw table. With the Record Power SS16V, the maximum table inclination is reached at 45 degrees.

Further features

The passage height is 50 millimetres and the passage depth is 406 millimetres. The scroll saw has a lifting height of 21 millimetres. Its technical performance makes it a good alternative between a conventional entry-level model and a professional machine.

Saw blade

Record Power supplies two different saw blades as accessories for the SS16V scroll saw. One saw blade is with and one without pin. All in all, the scroll saw impresses with relatively thin saw blades, which are highly manoeuvrable and enable you to saw out fine particles and round shapes. For a single starter model like the one described here, the supplied saw blades are quite sufficient.

The different experiences have shown, however, that you can achieve much better results if you replace the supplied saw blades with a high-quality saw blade from other manufacturers. Replacing the saw blade is easy and has no disadvantages. The best thing to do is to try it out and see which saw blade offers the greatest advantages for your woodwork. After all, this is always a question of taste and your own demands on a scroll saw.


All in all, the SS16V scroll saw from Record Power offers good to very good quality and a wide range of performance, with which the beginner can be quite satisfied. In summary, the device is quite stable and convinces with a large work surface, so that you even have enough space to store your tools and material. The disadvantages are the working lights and the blower.

Both aspects could not convince here one hundred percent, but measured by the price-performance ratio this is to be represented also, since the quality otherwise corresponds to the expectations. With regard to the ratio of quality, performance spectrum and costs, the Record Power SS16V scroll saw is a very good purchase decision if you want to start woodworking with such a machine.
