  • tagman's first time using a message board

    Help!! I am new to this and completely confused as to whether I am doing this correctly, so please bear with me.
    I would like to delve into the world of scrolling and after reading many reviews as to what saws are available, I am now really confused. I would rather purchase something quality rather than start from cheap and work up. I have looked at the DW788 and had a chance to buy a used one. But I soon found out that they wanted almost as much as for new, so opted out. Now I have a chance to buy a Hawk 216vs, supposedly like new, for a price of $400.
    the seller claims that he was told that it sold for almost $1600 originally, but I see brand new models for a lot less that that. That being said, does anyone have an opinion if that particular model would be worht $400 in like new condition. Any help would be really appreciated.

    Sorry I can't offer any advice. I have an inexpensive Craftsman 16" that I'm pretty happy with. Go to the Tools and Blades forum and you'll find a 'Sticky' at the top with quite a lengthy group of messages where members talk about their saws.
    Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the advice. Hopefully, down the road, I will get a handle on how to use this message board. It sounds like great bunch of people belong to this group. Again, thanks for answering my inquiry.

          Hawk 226

          I just replaced my Hawk 226 with a G4. I can't bring myself to sell the 226 as it is still running like new. Bought it in February of 2002 and there are a fair amount of hours on it. Paid $1508.00 including stand, tray, mag light etc. If I were to sell it I'd ask $500. So I guess $400 sounds fair. If you can trust the assessment of the saw.

            I'd jump on that hawk for that price.

              Hey Tagman, welcome to the board! Where in Pennsylvania are you located? I live in S.W. PA, north of Pittsburgh.

              Can't comment on the Hawk, but it sounds like a sweet deal, definitely worth looking into.

              I have a DeWalt and I like it. Started out with a Craftsman and the difference is night & day. If you are looking at comparable saws to the DeWalt, check out the Delta P-20. I've used it's predecessor, the Q3 and loved it.
