    Disassembly and transporting of Diamond scrollsaw.

    You can remove the wooden table and release the tension on the arm to tie it to the table , that’s it the frame is all welded so cannot be disassembled If it has a stand that bolts together that does come apart

    This shows one of the reasons this is the best saw ever built!!! These components are a cheap and easy fix if they go wrong. If a hegner Axminster or dewalt fail it costs a fortune to fix

    Hegner development
