I just looked at the Ryobi Scroll saw and the Ryobi 9" band saw both seem to have fair reviews for the hobbyist.*
Does anyone have any experience with the Ryobi Brand?
I have no experience with the Ryobi brand, but I have heard that they are good. Personally I prefer a scroll saw with an aggressive tooth count for knife handle work, but I think that either one would work. My scroll saw is a basic single speed model and it has always served me well. Since I always over size the handle material a little and then sand it to final shape, I don't need to be very precise with the cuts.
