  • What is an easy-lift?

    Sorry, I'm ignorant. What is an easy-lift, and why do I need one? Where do I find one?

  • #2
    It's a spring loaded upper arm holder-upper for a DeWalt 788 scrollsaw.
    Check out for the info.
    Wildwood designs sells them too!
    I use one and it works great!

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

      yup, thats where youll find it. It comes in handy for blade changing, and makes feeding the blade through the hole on the Dewalt much easier. At least for me anyways, as wel as many many others. dale

        EZ lift

        I also bought an easy lift form Jim Dandy and really like it. It's a lot better than putting a block of wood under the arm while changing blades or top feeding. I would recommend getting for yourself (saw).

        Oh, yea when you call you get a real person (don't know if it is Mr. Jim or Mr. Dandy) to talk to. So you won't have to jump through the button hoops and forget what you called for in the first place.

          Easy lift

          I was using a block to hold my saw up and it was very bothersome so I bought the easy lift and it is so handy. I would recommend it to every one with a DeWalt 788.

            you guys should get a Craftsman and you won't have all those problems changing blades --- no argueing needed just a bit of teasing -- omit it if you need to BobD.

              On my last 788 saw (3 of 3 since Nov) the pivot screw was a little tight and held up the arm until I moved it down which precluded the need for an EZ Lift. On #1 saw I purchased and used the EZ lift and it made life much easier than the block of wood I had been using up to that time. Last night I loosened up the arm pivot screw a smidge and put on the EZ Lift. Your choise, six of one - half dozen of the other... PS: Loosening up the pivot screw a bit so the arm moves smoothly to the bottom of its stop still didn't help close the distance between the blade clamps.

                The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

                When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
                Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

                Pegas Scroll Saw speed changes randomly
                by mccrookston
                First time posting.
                I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
                I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
                Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
                Any ideas on what might be causing...

                That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
