Default Looking at scroll saws

I'm looking at a Delta SS350. It seems to have all the things I read were needed to start. Any Ideas? This thing looks new and the guy is asking a small price.

Hello Tom
Welcome to the forum.
Have you looked at the scroll saw section.

Looking forward to your participation.
Filling out your profile to include (first name,tools and short bio is strictly (optional )but does help members to better relate to each other.
Thank You John

Tom,

I don't know that model, but it looks like a big heavy machine. If you get a good price it should be a safe purchase, you could probably get your cash back out of it reselling it if you aren't thrilled with it.

There are lots of similarities with the dewalt saws, you can modify the thumbscrews for the blade clamps, etc. check out Steve goods site for ideas

Welcome Tom. If you buy this, keep us posted on how it's working out. I've been thinking about getting a scroll saw, too.

And if you ever find your way out of Kentucky, take me with you.

Thanks for the friendly welcome everyone! When I get this saw I'll post comments on it. It's a two hour drive to get this so I'm trying to work out the time. Thanks again! Happy to be aboard!
