Welcome to LJ and be sure to post your projects! It does not matter if you don’t think they are good enough (most of us are overly critical with our own works anyway) as long as you are doing your best and keep improving as well.

You left out the part where you tell us scrollers (like me) what KIND of scroll saws you have now. I drolling over other people’s scroll saws. My money hasn’t allowed me to get a better one. I’m using the same Delta SS250 that I’ve been using for a couple of years now.

Thanks everyone for the welcomes. William I have a DeWalt 788 and my wife has a craftsman 18 inch. She didn’t feel comfotable using the DeWalt so we got her a saw of her own. I also have a Ryobi (my first saw) that I am going to send to my brother.

I liked my Ryobi, almost my first saw. It was so bad that after cutting intricate projects on that I felt I could cut anything with a halfway decent saw.
Let us know how she likes the Craftsman 18”. I haven’t heard too much about that one, good or bad.
