Used Scroll Saw

I've never owned a scroll saw before. Bought this at a pawn shop for $40

"16 Craftsman with 2" depth cut availability

Anyone have any art work craft work done by scroll saw they'd like to show me. And do you all think I got a good deal?

Not a whole lot of scrolling, but yes, done on a scroll saw. At $40 you did all right.

I love that. I'll post some work when I can. I have a lot to learn with this new toy. Thanks for the response.

forgot to mention that there is maybe a half dozen styles
of blades for that machine that will work well. I suggest you
purchase a few of each type and practice with them to see
what suits your projects, type of wood and your style of cutting the best.
it is hard to find "one blade that does it all".
you also will need a small drill with small bits for piercing the wood.
you can get suggested styles for the novice at Scroll Saw Village by using
the "search" feature. and as your experience grows, Bear Woods is a good source.
https://www.bearwood.com/scroll-saw-blades.html
another suggestion is to purchase a [used] beginners book from Amazon.

I had no idea how much you can do with a scroll saw! My goodness, it's endless! I want to show my 11yo nephew how to use mine. Do you all believe that's a good age? My oldest grandson is 6, will be 7 in April, too young?
