If you have any interest in scrolling, the SS scroll saw is very good. If you can get a used one and hook it up you could have a very good scroll saw for a very reasonable price. Note that with a scroll saw you don’t need very much power. 1/2 hp would be plenty and you could probably get by with less.

FYI – I have a SS scroll saw and I have discovered that scrolling is not for me. They sell for $700 new and I think they are worth. They compare favorably with other scroll saws at this price or higher. Send my a PM if interested. I’ll make you a good deal.
