  • Dewalt Scroll Saw

    On the subject of the Dewalt scroll saw, I'm on my 2nd one!! The 1st one was a piece of junk!! It viberated on slow speeds from the time I bought it, I took it back to where I bought it and they sent it out to be fixed, When it came back, the repair people said it was O.K. It worked for about 2 months, than 'crapped' out again. I contacted Dewalt, they had me ship it to them(at thier expence) and ended up sending me a brand new saw!!! I have a scroll saw buddy who has used his Dewalt almost every day for over 2 years, without any problems. Please let me know about your Dewalt scroll saw troubles. THANKS BARRY

    Re: Dewalt Scroll Saw

    We've had this conversation before. Some of us really like our Dewalt scroll saws, and others have nothing good to say about them. There must be a manufacturing glitch that plagues some and not others. I use mine for cutting fairly heavy items, from 3/4' to 1 1/2' thick butternut, basswood, and mahogany, and really like the way it runs. It needs to sit flat on the floor and be mounted properly on its base. The reverse-tooth blades can cause some jumping/chatter if you don't hold the stock, but, if you watch out for that, no problems!

      I am very happy with mine I have had for almost 3 yrs.

      I use it to cut 5/8' baltic burch, 1/2-3/4' solid oak, 1/2 cherry,walnut.

      I use Flying Dutchman blades with it and it is nice.

        I will never understand somebody putting down somebody elses equipment. They have what they have because they like it. What else matters. I'm not defending DeWalt here because I don't have one (have a Hawk) just making a statement on human nature I guess.

            Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

            Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

            I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

            Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
