I own 3 DeWalt DW788’s. I bought one new about 12 years ago, and I’ve purchased the other two as used. The original and one other are the “Type 1” models, made before the scrollsaws’ manufacturing was moved. The one “Type 2” doesn’t seem to be as “tight” as the other two, but it is still so much better than the other scrollsaw’s I’ve owned. The DeWalt has no vibration, a feature that is not found on lesser priced modesl. The DeWalt can be “top fed”—threading the blade from the top through the wood—this makes inside cuts so easy that 3-D objects are so much easier to create. The blade holder takes no tools—no more trying to find the correct allen wrench. We all have our preferences, but obviously I’m very satisfied with my DeWalts.
