Karen, Your Saw is an excellant saw and should do a very good job for you!
Just don’t get anxious when sawing. The worst thing that most jig saw users
do is get anxious. Don’t push the metal into the blade!! Let the blade pull
the stock with very little help from you. Lubricate the blade often (when
it starts to drag!) and you won’t break as many blades. Blade breaking is
part of the use of a Scroll Saw, but DON"T PUSH! LOL
