Delta  40-690 20" scroll saw

Delta 40-690 20" scroll saw

803 days ago by RetiredCoastie | 6 comments »

I was lucky enough to get this saw while Woodcraft’s had it on sale for $349.00 last week. It was delivered today and I stoped everything I was doing and put it together. After reading reviews that dinged it for some problems I inspected it carefully. One of the issues was the attach screws for the light. I inspected the screws and then the threads in the saw housing. I found that the first few threads were non existant and the screws were just a bit to short and had no bite. I bought l...

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

Got lucky and got a good one - Works great with modifications

891 days ago by WoodworkGuy | 3 comments »

My wife has been interested in woodworking for awhile, but didn’t want to mess with the “big machines,” but was interested in scroll sawing. The DeWalt and Hawk units were too expensive for a “trial” period, so we looked for a moderately-priced unit. Reading the great reviews on LJ led us to take a chance on the P-C PCB370SS. Fortunately, we were lucky and got a good one. It does a great job with a little vibration and I agree the dust removal and attached...

Huge Table and Easy Blade Changes

Huge Table and Easy Blade Changes

892 days ago by Kelen | 5 comments »

As a disclaimer, I am far from being a seasoned and proficient user of a scroll saw. I’ve cut out a few things in my day but have not embarked on any detailed fret work or intarsia design work. A majority of my projects have centered on simple wooden cutouts of letters, patterns, and a few animal puzzles. I view my scroll saw as more of a complement to my workshop and one of those tools that are fun to play with when I have some time. I have to be in the scrolling mindset though else I qu...

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

Dewalt 788 Scroll Saw

902 days ago by moonls | 20 comments »

I’d been using my Craftsman 16” scroll saw off and on since 2003, and recently, with a renewed interest in scroll work, I started trying to improve my skill. I was becoming frustrated with keeping the very small pinless blades secured in the holders and maintaining proper tension. The other big problem was vibration. Having researched the different saws on the market, it became apparent that the Dewalt was the best rated of the bunch in my price range. I ordered one on-line ...

My DW788 Scrollsaw Review and purchase experience.

My DW788 Scrollsaw Review and purchase experience.

951 days ago by Pie | 12 comments »

I was told the saw would be received in a week and I got it in about 4 days which was really nice. I also bought the stand that goes with the saw for an extra $46 and it was money well spent. The stand was very easy to assemble. I unpacked the saw (I bought a Used but New one) and could tell the saw had been opened and then repacked. The saw was in perfect condition, no scratches or blemishes at all. I picked the saw up and placed it on the stand and put the tear drop table on which was a sna...

Blade Alignment (front to back)

Blade Alignment (front to back)

1048 days ago by jerrells | 3 comments »

After having this saw for about 9 months, and using the heck out of it, I have noticed that the blade is not at 90- degrees – front to back. That means is is leaning back about 1/32 of an inch on the top side vs. the bottom (at the table). This was most noticable yesterday when cutting a 3-D compound cut and the cutouts were different size one side vs. the other. Now the almost useless product manual is of not help with this problem and previous attempts with Porter Cable have also been...

Reposting From My Regular Blog to Review the EX-21 Scroll Saw

After several months of waiting and anticipation, the moment finally arrived when I got a chance to really get to know and work on my new Excalibur scroll saw! Even though I had the saw delivered to the show in Saratoga Springs, there was little time for me to enjoy it and really run it through the paces. I was very busy at the show and I must say that I was only at the booth a couple of hours a day, during which time I was usually talking to people who stopped by. Both Keith and I were ...

PORTER-CABLE 16" Variable Speed Scroll Saw with Stand

PORTER-CABLE 16" Variable Speed Scroll Saw with Stand

I have a 24” Delta / Rockwell scroll saw but found it too hard to change blades for scroll work & has too much vibration. When I decided to get a bit more serious about scroll work I checked outquite a few brands & “off”-brands. Yes I’d love to have a New Dewalt or Delta but you need at least $600 to get a new one. I wanted a saw for under $200. There’s quite a few out there… Most of them crappy. But the best one I found in that price range is ...

Delta Q3 40-650 Scroll Saw

Delta Q3 40-650 Scroll Saw

1176 days ago by gbrown4 | 2 comments »

I recently acquired this Q3 scroll saw from Craig’s list. I was able to barter for it, amazon.com gift card trade. The seller acquired it from her father who recently passed away. The seller had no clue what it was so she was eager to trade for it. First off I notice it was missing the off/on switch and knob. It was rusty and dirty. I found a switch for $2.50 and replace the bent screws on the quick set blade clamp both upper and lower. I cleaned up the surface rust and wiped eve...
