    Yea, you just took a quantum leap in scrolling enjoyment by upgrading to the Dewalt. The Dewalt may have it's flaws, but I think it is a very user friendly saw and a good value for the serious hobbiest.

    I ended up going for the DeWalt and am very happy. Definitely a noticeable improvement from what I was working with previously.

    I would go for the DeWalt. I have had mine for about ten years, added an Excalibur, but still use the DeWalt.

    Well, I've done everything from making my own jigsaws to corbels for my bar. I'm not an expert by any means but I would probably be confident in saying I've risen above the beginner level. I've now got my eyes on the dewalt I can find it for around the same price as the delta. I have read good things...

    Definitely do an upgrade, you will be amazed at how much more enjoyable scrolling can be. I did my upgrade in two stages from a very frustrating old Craftsman (blade changes) to a Delta SS350(great saw aggressive blade motion) to my final step in 2005 Hawk G4-26. Does everything a scroll saw should...

    I have had good luck with packing tape over the pattern, just make sure to get ot flat don't let it have open voids or dust does get under it, when that ahppens with me I take a razor knife and cut it open to see.

    If you can afford the delta, I would suggest paying a little more and getting the Dewalt, or getting a used Dewalt off of Craigslist. If you need to stay < 100, then I would suggest getting on Craigslist and finding a Porter Cable (either model), or a Rexon styled saw. Rexon saws are re-branded by...
