I have three scroll saws. A 1988 Jet a 1986 Hegner and a 2008 Hegner. These are great durable saws but blade changing is a little slower than the others mentioned. For fret work I would use one of those already mentioned (I do not do fretwork) The scrolling I do I am cutting 3/4” thickness or more and have literally killed a DeWalt in under two years. If you want to do heavy cutting like I do I recommend a Hegner. I can still get parts for my Hegners but Jet is no longer available in the USA, as far as I know.
