  • How long have you had the same saw with no problems

    I'm just curious. How long have you had the same saw with no problems at all/ I've had an eclipse for 9 yrs. and not one problem. I've had a few saws over the yrs but this one is a dream and well worth the money. Just hope I have'nt jinxed myself. lol dogs

    I bought my DeWalt 788 in June of 1998, and aside from a little tightening of stuff, it's been a trusty tool...
    Love my 788...

        I've had my 16 inch dremel for about 8 years. Would love one of those fancy new Ex's but budget won't budge.

            I've had my dewalt since 2001 just upgraded to an ex21. The 788 is still a backup saw.

              I have had my RBI Hawk G4 26 since April of 2005. I have put over 2151 hours on it with no issues. I have an hour meter on it that tracks when the saw is running. That equates to about 6 hours per week.
              That 6 hours does not count the thread and clamp time.

                    I have my Hegner 18v for over 25 years and did not have problems with it in all of the years I own it. It is a great machine and work horse.

                        I recieved my Hawk 220 in 2002 as a bday gift from the hubby. The first motor was faulty. They replaced it that week and I haven't had any issues since.

                            I haven't had any serious issues wth my Delta P20 it is 10 years old, and no issues

                            with my Hegner 22v 4 years old.

                            If all scroll saws come equiped with an hour meter that would tell the true story

                            of their reliability providing they were properly maintained.

                                Can't get mine yet in Arizona, although I'd love to. Don't have enough vaccines here, so we are still focused on high exposure 'essential workers' and people over 75.

                                We have not. A visit to the doctor and he stated that once sick with covid, the antibodies are active in the body.

                                My wife and I got vaccinated this morning. I had worried that there would be long lines. But, the state of Indiana seems to have gotten it right. We went online 10 days ago and scheduled an bbc.co appointment. We got there as nd no line and went thru the check in, got our shots, waited 15 minutes...
