  • 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

          Go to
          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?

                So many are selling them here it’s not worth us making them. However, we do very well with our dough boards. Nobody else makes them. We have an order for a dough board and matching pepper grinder. The walnut board I could make into a beautiful basket or two and sell for lots more than they are getting...

                I use #7 on my younger kid puzzles. Easier for them to put together.

                I did forget to mention he cut a finger on his left hand with the bandsaw. Just took skin off. Lucky again. Told him he was calling 911 next time.

                Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.
