I'm new here and looking at buying my first scroll saw. I loved woodwork at school and want to reignite my passion!

I have a 2 1/2 year old son and am eager to get making some wooden animals etc as well as gifts for family this Christmas.

My current budget is no more than £100, preferably as little as possible without compromising on quality.

Please help me!

Thanks, Bonnie

I think a lot of people try scrolling and give up; I'd look for second hand, perhaps on eBay.

There's a huge (may be inconvenient) "Diamond" saw offered on the sale area of this very site!

Hello and welcome :mrgreen:

You will get a better quality saw within your budget if you look on internet auction site's

And normally this will include blades books and maybe some ply , if people are selling up from the hobby

Like this one

Have a hunt and you will find a good value saw :wink:

The diamond as mentioned above is the daddy of scroll saws .. But its rather big and as its no longer in production factory parts may be a problem, but if you can make any bits as and when required... its a bargain

Out of all the 'budget' saws for the better clamping against some of the others I'd suggest looking the Jet JSS-16
