When drilling the bolt holes through the MDF and the metal frame it helps to clamp the panels to the frame for drilling. Once you have the frame strengthened with MDF and all of the bolts very tight you will see quite an increase in stability when sawing.
Another worthwhile improvement that you can make to the saw is to replace the plastic insert that fits around the blade.

An updated guide to today’s most popular scroll saws Scroll saws vary in price almost as much as they vary in features. Readers approach pattern with cleverness and creativity In the Fall 2012 issue of the Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts (Issue 48), we printed a pattern of intertwined dragons and asked our readers to show us what they could do with it.

Use the right products to ensure your outdoor projects last In Scroll Saw Woodworking & Crafts Summer 2014 (Issue 55), Technical Editor Bob Duncan presented an introduction to durable outdoor glues and finishes. You  can use LockTite (a glue for locking nuts to bolts that comes in a tube at Lowes) on each bolt and nut to keep them from vibrating loose over time. That way you can use the holes that you drill in the panels as drilling guides as you drill through the metal frame. If you want to decrease the vibration even more you can place concrete blocks, barbells or anything very heavy on the shelf below the saw to add weight to the base. The plastic one that comes with the saw is not rigid enough for extremely detailed scrolling.

The most inexpensive models cost about $100, while the most expensive can cost $2,000 or more. If you can spend a little more you can buy lock-nuts and skip the lock washers and LockTite glue.
It speeds things up a bit to add a drop of motor oil or lubricating oil to the holes after the holes are drilled in the MDF to keep the drill bit cooler and to prevent dulling the bit when drilling through the metal sides. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
It is good practice to cut all of the MDF panels to fit the saw frame and then drill the panels for the bolts.
I used the plastic one as a template for tracing the shape on the masonite then sawed it out on the scroll saw. To mark the MDF for sawing take the saw off the frame and lay the frame down on the MDF to trace around the outside of the saw base frame with a pencil to make the sawing lines. They have a white plastic ring inside that creates pressure on the threads that prevent the nuts from vibrating loose. I drilled a minimum size hole in my handmade masonite insert that was just big enough to clear the blade.
It is a good idea to also mark for a toe-space out at the bottom of the three MDF sides that is about 4” high as shown in the photo. To maintain side stability allow enough MDF on each side of the toe-space opening to extend down to the rubber feet on the metal frame. Once that was done and with the insert in the table I used 80 grit sandpaper wrapped around a wood block to sand the new insert down to the exact level of the table. The toe-space opening is for your toes when you want to get up close to the saw for detailed scrolling. The new insert works perfectly and I can easily replace it any time as the hole for the saw blade gets too big with use.
