Default RE: Tools for the model shop - bandsaw/jigsaw/scroll saw?

Well first let me start out by saying i have alot of craftsman power and hand tools. And generally like them alot. I happen to own a craftsman two wheel tabletop bandsaw. And let me voice my opinion. it is the biggest P.O.S. i have ever owned. I would have to vote for either the dremel or the craftsman scroll saw. you can get the variable speed scroll saw for between 120.00 to 140.00 dollars. Might be slightly less with the sales going on. The two wheel band saw that sears has spins at a gazillion feet per second. and cutting a straight line is impossible.

Let me put it this way buy the bandsaw regret it for the rest of your life.
Buy the scroll saw and love life.

The small table saws that someguys had pictures of look really interesting though. And i may have to check into one later on.
