Thanks for the tips! We are trying to “go cheap” now because my wife is not even sure it is something she will like doing, so she just wants to get exposure. If she ends up taking to it I’ll have no problem selling the cheapo on craigslist or keep it around for trimming custom cast acrylic pen blanks.

Out of curiosity, what makes a good scroll saw better than a cheap scroll saw? This is one aspect of woodworking I have no experience with at all.

David, one day I’d like to build a chevalet. That’s not in the cards this year though.

Alternately, what used/older saws should I keep an eye out for on craigslist?
