I've got a Craftsman 16" variable speed scroll saw that I got new I guess well over 10 years or more ago. Still works just fine.
I've been pondering getting another saw, to use in my spare room. I'd been looking at used saws, but most of them must be gold plated, judging by the prices asked. Then decided to get a new one from Harbor Freight, for about $70. I've compared that one to big name saws, and apparently it holds up as well as them, plus HF has a great return policy. Don't know if you could get one in your part of the world or not.
I've put off buying it, because other considerations/issues have come up.

.....Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.
