          Dave, good luck on the Dewalt. I've had mine for a while and get a lot of use out of it.

              Go Army::: Sorry my nephew is at West Point

              I have had the Dewalt for about 3 years, paid 399 for it and think its worth every penny. The only problem I've had is the switch ( 5 dollar part) went out in the middle of 35 x-mas ornaments. Jumped online and ordered one, next day I got an email back that said back ordered ( SIX MONTHS ) no S--- I called and raised heck told them I have 7 dewalt tools in my shop and if it takes that long I would never buy #8. It came in 10 days latter. I still would buy it again.

                Just bought a Dewalt 788 from Toolking for 419 which included the stand and the light for it. Free shipping. I bought a Delta 16' a while back and now I wish I had known then what I know now!

                  Ordered the saw from Toolking on Sunday and it was delivered to me on Thursday, impressive. This is a quantum leap over the scroll saw I had, a Delta 16' shopmaster. I never could have cut the designs out that I have in the lsat few days. I paid $419 for the saw, stand and the light, a very good deal. There was no set up to speak of, just placed the heavy duty cast iron top on, plugged it in and started sawing. The tension control is a no brainer allowing you set it the same every time. I would definitely buy this saw again if I had to and Toolking is a good dealer to buy from. A definite thumbs up!

                    I set my saw up with the forward tilt...love it! Talk about a back saver...you aren't all hunched over trying to see your work

                      Did you get the arm holder/raiser attachment? It's not a Dewalt item, but Woodcraft had it and threw it in when I bough my saw. It holds the arm up when you're changing blades. Really useful!

                        I did get the arm support...19.00 but I think it was from the company that makes them? Can't remember the name of the outfit..but it is a big help!

                              Yeah, that's the one. Worth the $19. I also got the sanding strips for my scroll saw, shown on the same web-site. They are really slick for cleaning saw cut edges on my acanthus carvings.
