        Jet Saw

        I agree, I think the Jet saw would be your best choice.

        I have had the contracter version (think that is the same number you have listed) for over 10 years and cut a lot of things with it.

        As long as you set it up good, and keep a good blade in it you should have no problems with cutting anything.

        The Blade is a big part of it and I have tried a lot of different makes, and found the mid to high end range blade will last you a long time. I use a CMT 50 tooth blade for a general all around blade and found it to cut as good as the same in the Forrest WWII blades or other brands. (save your money on the Forrest) they give you a guarantee that if you don't like it send it back, and I sent it and samples of my cuts back to them, and showed them that for 1/2 the price I could get as good of a cut, then they come up with the story that since I didn't buy it direct from them, I had to pay restocking fee and such, so that is just my story on Forrest blades.

        Go with the Jet, I don't think you will go wrong, and with the 1 1/2 HP motor you should have enough power to cut most things.

          Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

          Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

          Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
          Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
