It time for tax returns and the misses said that she will allow me a bucks to get a new tool. The problem is I only have about $250 to spend. So etheir I get the HF BS or look for a scrollsaw. The main thing it will get used for at this time will be to cut out patternsfrom 3/4 ply or 4/4 stock. Resawing is not a concern at this point. If the scrollsaw wins out any ideas on a deent starter model? What would you do if you where stuck in this postion?
