    I've been looking for a stool for my wife to use at her scroll saw for a long, long time....and her birthday is next week!

    I'm curious - Jeff, and anyone else who has one of these, how do you like it? Is it sturdy? OK for the back? Is it a good choice for scroll-sawers?

    I'll check later today or tomorrow if it's available at the local sears. It's available on line for $70. Is this a good price? Anyone know of anything comparable!

    I have one of these at my scroll saw, it is ok, but there is no way I could sit in it longer than 30 minutes tops

    It is not worth $70, I had my wife pick one up for me sometime after Christmas when they were $30 and that is much more inline with what they are worth
    my goal in life is to be as good a person as my kids think i am

    life is short, even in it's longest days

    I think you nailed it. I went over the the local Sears at lunch and had a sit on the stool. My butt hags over on the sides And mine's not really that big! Not terribly comfortable! I think I'll pass.

    Anyone have a better idea?

    Yep! That's what I use, too. Mine looks just like yours, except it's upholstered in blue.

    come to think of it, that would almost qualify as my best dumpster recovery. Got it free from a defunct GE plant.

    Excellent back support and support for when you lean forward over your work, and the front of the seat falls off a little so you don't restrict blood supply to the legs.

    Only one itty bitty little problem.

    $800 each!!!

    I wonder what the used market is on these things?

    I have these in our AV booth at church. OK for a 1 hour service, but not-so-good for long sits over a saw. Also, it does not have the front support of the dental assistant's chair.

    There are a few used office furniture houses around here - I'll keep my eyes open. you never know!
