I´ve been looking for a suitable scrollsaw for a hobby user and have been recommended the Delta SS350LS. There is also an older version called 40-570, which seem to be available here in my country, Finland, but I´d like the newer one with the stand that comes with it. Also been looking at those expensive Hegner scrollsaws.
The problem is, that the Delta SS350LS is not sold over here, only the discontiued 40-570 without any stand whatsoever. The price for this is 330 euros ($410). That´s kind of much, considering that you guys in the States get a DeWalt 788 including a stand for that amount of cash.
I know the DeWalt 788 is one that is usually recommended, but I have asked the factory and they do not make a model for the European market with the required 230Volt motor. The Delta 40-570 has a European version, not sure if there is one of the newer SS350LS that I´d like.
The Hegner scrollsaws are of course available for the European market and electricity specifications, being an Austrian product, but prices here in Finland for even the smallest one is about 600 euros and it doesn´t take a blade quickchange set at all. The bigger ones do, but then prices goes to more than 1300 euros and that´s without electronic speed control, you have to buy separately the speed control, quickchange blade holder and stand.
So, back to the subject:
Is there an online woodworking tool shop somewhere in Europe with reasonable prices? Preferably one that carries the Delta scrollsaws and/or Hegner ones?
I´m thankful for any tips and comments.
Sincerely, Ken Finland
