      You really do not need a special table but they are nice. A lot of what/where you put it on will depend on if you sit or stand while scrolling and also your height. My saws are on a stands and I sit on a tall (30") stool. I am 5'8" and this is comfortable for me. Try sitting it on a work bench and use it a while. One piece of advice. Once you find a comfortable platform/height you want to bolt your saw to it. That will greatly reduce vibration.

          Just about any flat surface will do, at least temporarily. Once you decide that you want a dedicated, permanent stand, you will have to determine if you want to sit or stand while scrolling. For good ergonomics, you want the table of the saw to be at a comfortable height. You don't want to be hunched over when cutting on the scroll saw. This will contribute to neck, shoulder & back discomfort.

          Once you have an idea how high the stand needs to be, then you can decide if you want to build your own or make use of a bench/desk/table, etc. It's really all about getting the saw to a comfoprtable working level and having a solid base beneath it to minimize vibration. Beyond that, the design concept is wide open.

            Farmers market "survey"
            by Linda In Phoenix
            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

            Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

            So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
            I like the fact...

            Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
