Thanks Wolf..... Very good info for comparision shopping. Wonder if we could talk you into a scale rating of 1 thru 10 on each machie?

Would be so much better than relying on Amazon reviews.

Just a NOTE***
I use CaptureWiz Pro ,it will let you copy anything you see on the PC,it will also capture any web page, plus as many web pages as you want with the Scroll tool it's a great tool, it's not free but it works.(Pro.Ver)
**Just a TIP ==== it will also do VIDEO, like the ▼

They do have a 30 day ver. that's great. see links below

The Scrollsaw Comparison Chart was two screen pages long but now it's a one image file. (.gif for text ) note the hvy. black line.

As for comparisons ive only had four models in 15 years so i can only rate those
Ive had a delta 16 inch two speed and has a variable speed i liked the variable better more control. The two speed one speed was too fast one not quite fast enough
Ive had a craftsman 16 inch and would never buy another not even free
and my current saw a 20 inch dewalt i dont know how i lived with out this saw two way tilt on arm arm lifts to make blade changes easier better dust blower and better light.
One draw back you have to mickey nouse a dust collector as there isnt one but for that little ole reason i can over look that
You get what you pay for
Excalibur
Dewalt
Delta
and craftsman doesnt even rate on this page

Darryn

Thanks for the ratings even if they are your own experiences. I take them serious as you have a lot of background in this area and one in the know. It will help me in upgrading down the road as my skill level increases beyond my current saw. I purchased the Delta 350 based on the reviews and recommendations available back at the end of 2004 and have been happy with it so far as a beginner, but know I will want to upgrade if I persue this area of woodworking.

Thanks again for all the help Wolf.

I took a look at the Scroll Saw comparison chart and missed anything called Craftsman. When my grandfather's 1938 Delta 20" machine finally died last year ( the insulation on the wiring decayed ) I replaced it with a Craftsman 16". It is a great machine. Variable speed, no-tool blade change, table tilt 45 degrees both directions, and I can cut a 2 x 4. The price was under $130 out the door. There is even a little compartment to store spare blades.
