I just have to brag. I know it isn’t top of the line but I was in HF looking at the lathes as I know I have one in my semi-near future. Anyways, I was look at their scratch and dent table (You gotta love a tool store that has a scratch and dent section) and found this saw (http://www.harborfreight.com/16-inch-variable-speed-scroll-saw-93012.html) for 35 bucks. I talked to a sales person who said someone had used it for a day and returned it. I verified that it actually worked and brought it home.

I have to say, I can’t complain. I am not as hard core as most of the people here, but it is a great tool to start with.

Have fun and make sure to leave sawdust where ever you go.

I gotta tell ya that I have an OLD AMT 16”er that is about 20+ yrs old. Don’t even remember what I paid.
Still workin’ though if it should need a part, it will become a heavy piece of scrap.

I just found a rigid 16” variable speed scroll for $40. I dont think anyone did anything with it but take it out of the box. Have fun with yours, I’ve havent done much but play with mine yet, but I love it

I bought an old shaper off CL a couple months ago and the guy was moving and threw in an old Dunlop 20” scroll saw for free.. this thing is a beast.. weighs just as much as the shaper.. works like a champ…
never did much with it yet, but looking to start using it more. just hate to move it….

I’ve had a HF 6×48 belt/disc sander for about a month now and am pretty pleased with it. The store is only 20 miles from me. That scroll saw was a bargain and it sounds like it was practically new. Good deal.
