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

After putting my thumb in a four tooth per inch band saw blade i can see the statement. I have to ask have you ever cut yourself on a scroll saw? I did'nt think so. The bandsaw tends to pull you into the blade whereas the scroll saw every other way tries to release you from it. So while not cutting bone and flesh could be considered as a mis statement. It is far truer than you could imagine.
As far as the blade tracking goes that someone suggested. i tried it all and i just don't like the craftsmen band saw that i have. Later on i will probably get a bigger floor mounted one for about 250.00. But right now the scroll saw is the most used tool for me.
