Default OK, I did it.

As I said in my intro post I had a Craftsman Pro scroll saw that bit the dust. I broke down today and bought a Porter Cable PCB370SS. What I really wanted is one of those $500 jobs with all the bells and whistles. Reality sunk in when I opened my wallet (retired teacher). After reading all the reviews I could find online, I decided the PC was worth a try. I already have a couple of hours on it and have notice what seems to be the biggest complaint. The motor keep changing a little no matter what speed it is set at. It really is not a big problem as far as I'm concerned. It does not affect the way the blade cuts. It is much quieter, with less vibration, than my previous saw. It is easy to control and the light helps a lot. I hope to post projects soon.
