Gentlemen, start your engines.
I am looking in the very near future a new scroll saw. I want a saw that I can do fine marquetry / inlay work with. I want one with plain, pin-less type blades. I am willing to spend upwards of $400. I want a good quality product, not something shoddy. I have looked all over for reviews, and am hearing mixed things. The DEWALT DW788 was my choice, but I’ve read that they were great saws when they were build in Canada, but now they are build in Asia somewhere, and the quality isn’t there. One guy complained of the rough machining on the main table, so bad that if you rub your veneer on the table, it actually sands it?! Can’t have that on fine woodworking, obviously.
So if you do fine marquetry / inlay work, and you’ve found a saw that you can really get behind, please let me know!
