I’ll second the Hitachi 16” saw vote. I purchased it without any research, and have used it occassionally since. I did not put it on the included stand since I am an occasionally user. It is heavy, and if I just use one bolt to attach it to my bench the vibration disappears. The switch is just above the blade, and it has a light and blower. And very importantly the price is right. The DeWalt reviews well, but it is nearly three times the price of the Hitachi. I won’t get enough use out of a scroll saw to spend $500 or more, but the quality/price ratio on the Hitachi, at $179 seemed right.
