Enjoy, I know I love mine...of course, It's the only scrollsaw I have ever owned so I don't have anything to judge it against...but it does everything I have ever asked it to...well, I don't have it trained to get me a beer yet, but still working out that kink...

Jack, maybe your saw will get you a beer if you give it a new blade,,, huh? I'm not going in the shop this a.m. as I'm tired and it's Christmas. My tools were talking again last night any how, but today I won't even know what they said as I have not been down there as yet. I let the dogs out but that's it so far. Have a grgeat Christmas and enjoy the new saw. Fay
