One more newbie
Just thought I would say hi and introduce myself. Although I have been playing with a scroll saw for about a year now, it has been in fits and bursts. When it comes to a scroll saw, I think of myself as a Jack of all Trades (and yes, master of none so far). I have completed 2 intarsia projects, one segmentation, one portrait and a few dozen Christmas ornaments. The better I am getting at it (and the faster I can finish projects) the more enjoyable it is becoming. I am using a small Delta (16") and can't wait to upgrade, but that will have to come in time. I figure if I can get skilled on a small saw, then when I get to a large one, I'll be really good.
Can't wait to pick up lots of tricks and skills from others who really know what they are doing.

just take a look around your bound to learn some tricks and skills here and if you can't find it , just post a message and surely someone will try and help you out .
Now for bigger saw is not always a good thing . It does let you use a bigger piece of wood .

Welcome Lois. What a name to come home from Chorale rehearsal, to find as a new member (the Chorale is directed by another Lois). This is a great site, and the people are wonderful.
On the saw, there is a definite advantage to a good saw. The throat only affects the size of the piece you can run through the machine. That being said, I went for the largest throat I could get the saw I wanted in (25"), and for me and my work, I would be most disappointed to go to anything less. Depending on the work you do, a 16" saw may be more than enough throat for you (but good saws seem to commonly be about 20").
I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.
