  • Love my new DeWalt

    I got my new DeWalt the other day and I truly to love it. I practiced with it for one whole day. It cuts more agressave than my old (now back-up saw) Delta SS250. I like the top feeding and the tooless blade change. Also the tension, I think, is better. I know I can cut more accurately without the vibretion of the other saw.

    Somebody mentioned in a thread that you could buy a counter balnce for this saw. Something like Jim Dandy or whatever. Does anyone remember?

    Yeah I know what you're talking about. I got mine from Wildwood Designs. It's labeled as the Easy Lift System in their catalog. $20.95 Don't know if it's cheaper anywhere else or not.

          Bill,
          I recently upgraded my scroll saw and it was like moving from a biplane to a 747. The difference in smoothness and accuracy was really marked.

          Enjoy!!

            How did you attach the aluminum flat bar to your saw? Change out the screws on the saw? Bungie cord,Hum. Interesting.

                Thanks for the suggestion on the homemade counter balance. I'll have to try that.
