  • SCROLLNADO Dust collection for the scroll saw

    I found a product called the SCROLLNADO Dust collection for the scroll saws Dewalt DW 788, Delta 40-690, Delta 40-694, Delta 40-695 on Amazon this afternoon.
    https://www.amazon.com/s?k=SCROLLNAD...ref=nb_sb_noss

    Any ideas as to if this Dust Collector would work on my WEN scroll saw?

    Thanks ~ Rich

    Your best bet is to contact the Company and ask them if it is adaptable to your saw.

      I think most add on's will require some fiddling on your part. But it does say that it is held magnetically and I assume that most of the WEN saw is steel or cast iron. It does not come with a vacuum so that is something to consider. What will you connect it to?. Standard shop vacs are loud screaming meamies.
      I built my own system for my Hawk, based on the same principles but used loc-line fittings. There are many ways to approach this challenge. I also have it connected to a very quiet Festool vac. It was an expensive way to go but worth it to me.

        That product will not work on a Wen. It really only works on DeWalt/Delta, and some of the Excalibur-type saws. The bottom collection tube hooks onto the blade guard under the table, so without that blade guard, there's nothing to secure the tube to.

          I never could get any vendors to respond if they sold a dust collection system for a WEN scroll saw.
          After doing some research on YouTube, I am putting together one made out of 1/2" PCV pipe.
          I now just need to order the Loc-Line for the top and bottom tubes.

              I will post how it works once I get the rest of the parts set up.
              Here is the YouTube link that gave me the idea to build my dust collector:

                This is what I put together on my Hawk. I added the trap for those small pieces that got sucked up that I wanted to keep. I did not glue any of the joints in case something got stuck. I also added a swivel joint so that I could easily swing the upper tube out of my way. The Hawks stand is steel so I used a couple of mag switches to hold the assembly to the saw. The whole system works great. Screen (600 x 337).jpgSwivel mod (337 x 600).jpgTrap (600 x 337).jpgmag switch and plubing (600 x 337).jpg

                  I finished the construction of my dust collection system for my WEN scroll saw.
                  I gave it a test run this morning and I'm very happy with how it works!

                    That looks great! What are you using for vacuum? One thing that impresses me with sucking away the dust v/s blowing it, besides the obvious, is when I cut Baltic birch it has a smell that really bothers me. So I always wore a half mask when cutting it. now using the suction I have NO smell or dust.

                    Even the new saws with "dust collection" only get the bottom not the top.

                      Using a Shop-Vac, makes a little noise but work well removing the dust.

                        I think your solution will work better than the scrollnado option.

                        Today I was doing some cutting and realized that my upper
                        vacuum line was not clearing away the dust again. The rigid thin wall tub had kinked again. I just ordered the Loc-Line and fittings. I should have them by the 31st.. So tomorrow I begin the elimination of the Scrollnado and preparation for the next version in dust elimination.

                          Thanks for the update and my DYI dust collector is working just fine.
                          The Shop-Vac is a little noisy but Oh-Well!

                            The saw I have is also a 2005 or 6. It cuts well but seems noisy and when I get the blade tensioned, how I want it, the tension release lever near the blade swings forward and loosens the tension. I now have a rubber band holding it down as I run the saw. I have tried adjusting the...

                            Rolf,
                            Most blowers blow the dust from the left side to keep the cutting line clear. Did you disconnect your blower so that the vacuum system sucks the dust from the left keeping the pattern lines clear?

                            I added a trap to catch the small pieces that I don't want to lose. Also a simple swivel so I can swing the top part out of the way without messing with the upper nozzle. I did not glue the joints in case I get a clog. ...
