Footswitch
Our most popular single accessory, the Advanced Machinery footswitch enhances safety and convenience whether you use it with your scroll saw or any number of other power tools.  Enjoy these benefits:
  • Keep both hands free to control your work at all times.
  • Turn machine on and off instantly simply by stepping on or off the pedal.
  • "Deadman" design cuts current off the moment you step off the switch for maximum safety (machine can never run unattended).
  • Durable steel construction.
  • Skid-resistant pads on both top and bottom for safe operation.
  • Rated for over one million operating cycles - effectively lasts a lifetime.
  • Generous 6' cord length
  • Plugs into any grounded wall outlet.
  • 10 amp/1/2 HP rating is suitable for scroll saws, sharpening machines and a host of other shop equipment.
IMPORTANT:  Footswitch is not compatible with any machine using a magnetic switch, including the HEGNER Polymax and the current TORMEK T-7.

Blade Clamps
Extra blade clamps make your life easier by allowing you to prepare multiple blades for rapid, tool-free blade exchanges as you work, whether switching between blade sizes or simply replacing a dull one. Get one set of clamps for each blade size and type for maximum convenience!  

HEGNER standard blade clamps all share the same external size and shape, but are available with varying slot widths, and are sold BY THE PAIR.

Please note:  new HEGNER saws are supplied with one or two pair (depending on saw model) of medium (0.7mm) clamps.

Choose 0.5mm (small - .020") for sawblade sizes 4 or smaller.
Choose 0.7mm (medium - .028") for sawblade sizes 5 thru 9.
Choose 1.0mm (large - .040") for sawblade sizes 10 or larger.

Why different slot sizes?  HEGNER's unique, patented clamps grip the blade easily and effectively due to a leveraged crimping action produced by the inside edges of the clamp slot converging onto the blade at an angle.  This angle must be within a certain range for maximum effectiveness.

If the angle is too shallow (large blade in small clamp) the grip will not be as secure.  If the angle is too steep (small blade in large clamp) the gripping area will be too small, causing stress on the blade which can lead to premature blade breakage. The smaller the blade, the greater the benefit of the narrow slot clamps.

How do you easily identify which clamp is which?  Small and large slot clamps both have a smooth top, but are easy to differentiate since the large slot is twice the size of the small one.  The medium slot clamp has a dimple in its top so you can easily tell it apart from the others.  Also, all separately ordered clamp pairs are supplied in individual bags identifying their size.

Note:  If you own an older saw with older clamps, the dimple may not be present on medium clamps, as this feature was introduced less than 20 years ago.  If in doubt regarding size, loosen the clamp screw and use a feeler gauge to determine the slot width.  Then mark the clamp in some way that suits your needs, so that you can use it for the proper blade sizes.

Standard clamps are supplied with a HEGNER TuffScrew, as shown above.

QuickClamp for Hegner Scroll Saws
Use instead of upper blade clamp and align your blade instantly. Positive stop puts blade in same position every time, and easy-grip knob places pressure directly on the blade for slip-free tightening. 

QuickClamp is supplied complete as shown, and accepts all blade sizes.

TuffWrench
For use with HEGNER TuffScrew for fastening saw blades in blade clamps.

This improved TuffWrench is made in Germany from hardened chrome vanadium steel with a nickel finish and 72mm (2 3/4") ergonomic plastic handle.  Comfortable and durable, it makes blade installation a snap, even for anyone with limited hand strength.  

Included with all new HEGNER saws, and highly recommended as an upgrade for older saws.
