I am starting to look around for a new Scroll Saw. I don’t use one to much but my wife has expressed an interest in using one and I like the idea of having another one around the shop. We don’t need anything to expensive and it doesn’t have to be A1 shop grade but a professional model, not a hobbyists tool.
My next biggest requirement is it has to run (at least) semi-quietly. The Craftsman models I have looked at and listened to, especially the 18” model was way to loud to be enjoyable for me to use. The Hitachi Scroll Saw looks like a good one but I haven’t heard it run yet and I also plan to see what Rigid has to offer. Delta also comes to mind. Harbor Freight makes a model that sells cheap at around $80.00. I think $200.00 would be my upper limit as the Hitachi model sells for about $180.00 and looks to be a high quality tool. I also would like the saw to accept both normal and round blades.
Please post your opinions and experiences.
