Hmm, some food for thought. Thank you for all the replies so far. I have been leaning towards the DeWalt, mainly because of the ease of getting replacement parts if necessary.

I’ll have to continue to do a little more research before investing the money, unless I can find one of them, or something of similar quality, such as an Excalibur, etc.

I do have a bandsaw, but I still haven’t gotten it set-up! If I could do that, it would be helpful. I’m having trouble getting the motor mounted properly. Maybe I’m doing something incorrectly? It’s a 14” Harbor Freight bandsaw, so the instructions are less than adequate. Maybe I should call the Harbor Freight help line and they can walk me through my issue?

I’m thinking a scrollsaw would be helpful with one or two holiday gifts I’d like to make. I don’t think the bandsaw will allow me to make the cuts I need to for one of the planned (and my first) inlay project.
