I just stopped at Lowe’s to pick up a Hitachi Scroll Saw and I planned to pay the $179.00 asking price for it. I found that the saw was on clearance for $159.00. I have also heard that Lowe’s and The Home Depot have been honoring Harbor Freight’s coupons so I took the typical 20% off the purchase of a single item coupon with me. The cashier at the lumber door exit refused to honor the coupon and wanted to charge me $159.00 for the saw which I declined to pay. I then went to customer service with the saw and the coupon and the cashier there said wait a minute while I check. She checked with her supervisor who said he didn’t know but would ask the store manager and they then accepted the Harbor Freight 20% off coupon. Four or five minutes later I walked out of Lowe’s with a brand new Hitachi Scroll Saw for $127.00!
I spent several months looking at many different makes and models of scroll saws, about a dozen in all. I arrived at the conclusion that the Hitachi saw at Lowe’s was the best value (when priced at $179.00) of all of the other brands I looked at for under the $450.00 price of the Dewalt model. For occasional use I think the saw will suit my hobby purposes just fine.
I don’t have mine setup yet but here is a past review of the saw from this website.
