HEGNER Polymax Eight Speed 20" Precision Scroll Saw - the Ultimate

The HEGNER Polymax Precision Scroll Saw is the model built from the original HEGNER prototype which first entered the market in 1972. It features a 20" capacity, and even more significantly the fastest cutting speed and most powerful sawing action of any HEGNER saw.  It is be far our heaviest machine, with a precision-milled cast iron table, and features a durable belt drive to ensure safe and reliable power at all speeds.  Four speeds and two stroke settings result in a total of eight speed options to handle virtually any project.

Many intensely dedicated home shops feature this extraordinary machine, but it is built for industry and it is fact used mostly in professional shops.  Daily operating burdens of eight or more hours are not uncommon, yet this saw includes a manufacturer's seven year warranty!

In the thirty years since HEGNER Saws were introduced, hundreds of experts and even more importantly, tens of thousands of satisfied owners have confirmed HEGNER technology and performance as the world-wide standard of the industry. This original HEGNER is so good that nothing in its design has changed since it was first introduced - it has even resisted variable electronic speed and quick-change blade changing mechanisms in favor of its heavy-duty, belt-driven, indestructible design.

HEGNER scroll saws are known for easy blade installation, long blade life, superb cutting control, smooth and quiet operation, accurate sawing, smooth edges without sanding, and unsurpassed reliability. And now the Hegner Polymax comes standard with the new Hegner Sawdust Management System  which gives you the choice of either blowing the sawdust off your cutting line, drawing out the sawdust into a separate dust collection device, or using a combination of both, giving you a clear view of your cutting line whenever the machine is running.

The Hegner Polymax was reviewed by WORKBENCH Magazine where it was referred to as "the ultimate in tools!"


HEGNER mainframe parts are crafted from cast iron to provide optimum strength and dampening characteristics, while the light alloy arms afford complete control with minimal reciprocating weight. As a result, HEGNER saws are known for being smooth and quiet. Just as important, their unique blade motion lifts the work less than a typical scroll saw, so using your HEGNER is more comfortable and relaxing than working with a lesser saw. You don't have to hold the work down as hard, so you can saw comfortably for hours, and the reduced friction also increases blade life as well as the quality of your cuts!
