I purchased a Hitachi 16” scroll saw model CW 40 a couple years ago. My disappointment is, that it recently quit working. My fear is that the Controller Assembly has gone a-rye. The scroll saw has done me justice in quite a few projects. However, Hitachi no longer manufactures this part. Subsequently, I will have to purchase another scroll saw. My question is basically this, what is the scroll saw of choice from scroll sawing folks out there. I prefer to purchase one that I won’t have to worry about discontinued replacement parts in the near future.
I’ve gone through this already with another one of my other major tools. The Professional Contractor 10” table saw from Sears. It too had parts that were no longer manufactured nor repairable. And I was forced into replacing it. I replaced it with the Ridgid R4510 with lifetime warranty.
So, what do all you scroll saw guru’s recommend I replace my Hitachi CW 40 16” variable speed scroll saw with. Since apparently my Hitachi will be going to the scrap yard? I would like a scroll saw that will last a tad bit longer than the Hitachi CW 40 has.
Thanks. Please accept my apologies in advance, as I was right in the middle of a delicate detailed cut when my saw went kaput…:(
