I have an opportunity to buy a Sears Scroll Saw Model #21626. 16” variable speed. It’s about 5-6 years old, new and never been opened. I’ve been searching the web to find out what it is worth so I can offer a price and can’t find anything. Does anyone know the value of it so I would know how much to offer?

thanks in advance

Right now the Craftsman #21602 is $120 new. I don’t know anything about the model number you gave, a quick search online gave nothing.
If you know what the saw looks like you could compare to the current styles, it may help give an idea.

Are you planning on starting to do a lot of scrolling, or is this saw just boosting your tool count? If you think you may want to start scrolling you should find out if the saw accepts pin-less blades and how the blades are changed. If the saw is not going to get much serious use it won’t be as critical.

If you have any questions let me know, I’ll try to help.

The next one up is a Porter Cable at Lowes for about $179.00. A guy can take a Harbor Freight 20% off coupon into Lowes with him and they most often honor it. If they don’t tell them that the guy at Home Depot said he would. The 20% off coupons are available online or in Wood, Mechanical or do it Yourself type magazines and many others everywhere.

The Sears saw has more vibration and noise but it could be a useful tool (maybe)...I would think unopened box $50.00 would be a fair offer.

Actually, I’m getting it to add to my tools. I’m not into scrolling yet and not that familiar with the saw, that’s why I was asking for your opinions. I’m not sure yet how often it will get used. The guy (my brother-in-law)I’m buyiing it from couldn’t remember how much he paid for, so I told him I’d look around. Thanks for your info.
