Hitachi CW 40 16" Scroll Saw

For Mother’s Day last year my husband asked what I wanted. I said a scroll saw. I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, but I didn’t have one and I wanted one. Since that is about the same logic that keeps my husband buying chain saws I knew my reasoning would work. (I think the chain saw count is up to 6, just yesterday he came home saying “but I don’t have this one, and it has a turbo, none of mine have a turbo)Not knowing exactly what I would do with the...

Nice scroll saw that has some useful features

Nice scroll saw that has some useful features

I do not use this saw much, but I got it on clearance at Home Depot some time ago, and do manage to make the purchase worth the cost from time to time. Yep, it no longer is available there as a new item, but Sears still has the same unit available in its stores (in a different color, of course), and used items might be on hand here and there. Other than more vibration than I like, this saw works OK. I found that by mounting the thing to a heavy bench (which itself is bolted to the shop wa...

Last year on my birthday(had to chuckle about the timing) my Ryobi scrollsaw that we got at a yard sale bit the dust. My wife in her loving ways said lets go to Home Depot and see what they have. I had been looking for a Delta variable speed but no one had it so she said how about the Dremel 18 inch saw (when she is in this mood I never say no) and we bought it at that time on sale for $199.00 and took it home, setup was easy and I just mounted it on the stand I made for the ryobi with a co...

This is a New addition to Craftsman Scroll Saw Series. The first one that I had, I’ve only used it twice, and if it wasn’t for the Replacement Warranty that I purchased just in case, I wouldn’t have this replacement now. So far, this Version of their Scroll Saw has Held up very well. There are only a few complaints with it thou. 1. The table is a Little Small2. The Table Tilt only tilts up to 45 Degree to the left Only, Not both left and right3. It does not hav...

This is the only scroll saw I have ever had so I nothing to compare it to. When researching and looking over many others I don’t think I could have done any better in my choice.This is the only scroll saw that DeWalt makes and with one this good it’s all they need With a throat depth of 20”, it beats out most others on just that. It is heavy at 56 pounds! Very well built.The table tilts 45 degrees both left and right. Tension, power switch and variable speed control ar...

My dad gave me this. I’ve used it once or twice. For me it was very easy to break blades but it was because I kept wanting to push it like a jigsaw. I think if you practiced with it it would be a useful tool.

Dremel Scroll Saw: Sweet!

Dremel Scroll Saw: Sweet!

(photo from www.dremel.com) When I decided to try my hand at working with wood, I thought that I would like to do some scroll work and so I did a little research and decided that I preferred the Dremel. About the time that I had made my decision, the tool came on sale and I jumped at the opportunity and it came home with me. The Features Sander :The station comes with the scroll saw and a sanding station on the side, which is really convenient, not only when I’m doing scroll sa...
