          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.

                                Our feed belt keeps moving but Bruce did adjust it the other day when I was done and this is the first time I’ve used it. It kept getting louder so I bet that’s it or it just isn’t tight. Will check it in the morning. Thanks.

                                Betty is the feed belt centered? Do you hear it when the drum is spinning or when just the feed belt is on?
                                I have had the sanding belt stretch, they do that over time, and there was enough hanging out to just kiss the table.

                                I got mine the other day. Also noticed a dearth of Christmas themed projects. I don't recall seeing much Christmas stuff in the Fall issue either. I look forward to new ornament ideas, but those were lacking this year.

                                I do understand some of the constraints in publishing a magazine these...

                                Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

                                Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...
