Just looking around today and came across your post. Welcome to the scrolling world. I was able to recently pick up a used DW788, type 1, $200. It hadn’t been used hardly at all either. I have been doing some work with it for about a month now, after going thru some setup steps like making sure the table is perpendicular to the blade and the blade in centered in the tear drop opening. I did find many videos on You Tube about scrolling and blade selection. I have a web site,, that I am starting to kind of follow my progress as a scroller, and I have a long way to go. I did post a video on my site,, that gives a quick and dirty definition for what type scroll saw blades work for what type of cutting you do. Again, it is just a quick explination but it gives you ideas and then you decide which blades you like.
Have a great day making saw dust.
