One thing a scroll saw can do that a band saw can't (unless you want to cut
your blade and re-weld it!) is make inside cuts. You can thread the blade
thru a hole drilled in the work piece. You can make very intricate cuts with
a scroll saw, but the thickness of wood you can cut is limited. Many
scrollers end up buying a band saw to resaw stock to scrolling thicknesses.
Inside cuts. You can drill a small hole, shove your scroll saw blade
Places where I may need a very small kerf.
I use the scroll saw a lot to make patterns that I can follow with a
bearing router bit.
I have used mine to make puzzles for the kids.
Scroll saw blades can turn on a .... point, if you have the right
blade. a Band saw will always need some radius to turn in. The
finest band saw blade will not turn a corner as tight as a scroll saw.
Kids can use a scroll saw. they are safer than a band saw.
hey, get a cheap Delta, see for yourself. I think bLowes has them on
sale for like 40 bucks. Than glue a photo on to a thin hunk of wood,
and freehand cut yourself a jig saw puzzle. Kinda fun, the first few
