I haven’t had much experience with the Hawk, but I can tell you that I LOVE my DeWalt 788. If I had to buy another saw today I would purchase exactly the same thing. I love the ease of the blade change, how all the controls are right there (tension and speed) and the large sized table. It is virtually vibration free and the only problem that I am aware of is that sometimes the switch goes out (which you can replace for about $12) I think it is the best saw for the money around. I know the Ex and the Hawk are good saws too, but I don’t think I would ever consider anything else. From the other people I hear from, most of them agree. I think you could use this saw whatever level you choose to aspire to in scroll sawing and you would still be happy with it. Just my own opinion.
