  • Under 250 bucks

    Just getting interested in scrolling. I looked at the scroll saw buying guide put out 2 years ago by scrollsawer. I am concerned about the recommendations.
    The dewalt seems to have great overall reviews in the past, but now is made in Asia and more recent reviews have said they have quality problems. Also, the porter cable had ok reviews in the past and is in my price range, but they have been purchased by black and decker and now has an aluminum table.
    I am looking for a decent starter saw right now and I am hoping for a recommendations under 250. Particularly any info about the shop fox scroll saw or other similarly priced saws. Thanks everyone. Hopefully, I can get a saw and start scrolling soon.

    For that price range - my suggestion would be to find a good used saw, rather than a cheap new one. Check Craigs list in your area maybe.

      Check the forums here and flea markets and yard sales. Some great deals can be found if you know what you are looking for and are willing to fix some things. The hard part is knowing what to buy and what to pass on. Craigs List in this area has as many dealers as individual sellers advertising tools for sale. Caution is advised as well as turning the tool on to see if it actually works, just sayin,...
