3 Part Question

New here...apologies if this has been asked, or needs to be asked elsewhere...tried to search.

Q1) Does anyone know of a Woodworking type coop in Southern Westchester County/Northern Bronx County (i.e. NYC) in New York State? I know of some in Brooklyn (i.e. Kings County, NYC), Northern Westchester County (Yorktown) and Southern Conneticut, (Norwalk) but that's it. These 3 aforementioned are a bit of a drive for me.

Q2) Do any of the major tool makers package tools together for one price--say a table and sliding compound miter saw package?

(I'm look to get both of these plus a drill press and band and scroll saw)

Yes, I suspect a dealer is apt to give me a better deal on each tool if I buy them together versus at different points in time--I was just wondering if some of such marketing solutions are made by the tool maker.

Q3) Okay--don't laugh. I get the difference between a scroll and band saw, both in how they are made and what they're used for. But is there such a thing as some incredibly tough scroll saw (internal wood cuts) that can also be used as a band saw (external wood cuts).

Thanks and sorry for my ignorance.

in order ...

1. No clue. Check local woodworking stores like Woodcraft and sometimes in the back pages of Fine Woodworking and other woodworking magazines.

2. Not usually. I've never seen any package deal on major woodworking machines, but there are individual sales on many, one at a time. Grizzly runs sales and Laguna and Jet.

3. No such animal as far as I know. For really tough interior cuts a Bosch sabre/jig saw is the best tool I know. You can get narrow blades that will turn a tight radius. You will be limited as to the thickness you can cut.
A bandsaw can be used on the interior of a cut IF you make a cut to get inside, then glue it back together, which can be done pretty seamlessly.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)
