  • 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.

                  Rolf when you say taper from right to left, do you mean thinner near the body and thicker at the end of cloud as on the wing ?
                  And on each cloud touching the body ?
                  I had already sand some part , will show show soon!

                  Thanks

                  I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

                  Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

                  What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

                  Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!
