  • Dewalt Scroll Saw

    My brand spankin new Dewalt scroll saw is making a
    slapping metal to metal noise. It isn't loud and doesn't effect
    the performance of the saw. I'm new to scrolling and the noise might be normal. Any one out there with a Dewalt
    having the same concern?

    Joe, if you go through the Tools and Blades thread you will find a few topics on problems that folks were having with their Dewalts. I'd post a link but that is a notch above my skills.

    Hope that helps.

      Metal to Metal Dewalt

      I've had my Dewalt for 3 years and never heard metal to metal banging. If it is brand new, I would contact Dewalt or the place I purchased it if they are local.

      Good Luck......Scott

          and scroll down on the left side and click on Dewalt Tuneup for the fix for that.

            So did you fix it? Which method did you use?

                Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
                a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
                Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

                They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

                Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

                Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

                I found this information on fuses in general.

                Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
