Topic tags/keywords: dewalt scroll saw dw788

Hey everyone,
I’ve been tracking this scroll saw for about a year now and this is the lowest price I’ve seen it as. It’s part of the amazon gold box deals of the day and I believe you can combine it with the $25 off $100 dewalt promotion as well if I’m not mistaken to make it right around $300 which is a tremendous value for what I understand is the best readily available scroll saw on the market today (outside of the specialized scroll saw brands I mean).

http://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DW788-20-Inch-Variable-Speed-Scroll/dp/B000022313/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1387553746&sr=8-2&keywords=Dewalt+scroll+saw

Hope someone finds this useful. I’m still debating if I should snatch it up as I got the Ryobi 16” for $29 at Home Depot a few weeks back. I know they’re not even close to the same but I haven’t scrolled a day in my life so not sure if I should splurge on this and sell the Ryobi or just use the Ryobi and buy something else :)

Nevermind, not eligible for the 25 off 100 promo, but still a great deal.

Hey Matt

I got one of these a couple of years ago and the Amazon price is not bad. If you get the stand and light, that would be about $34 more than I paid for mine. If you do get it, I would recommend you get the foot switch with it.

Since I got mine, I can’t tell you how much I’ve used it on varioius projects. In fact, I’m about to go back to the shop and use it again.

It’s a great tool and couldn’t imagine my shop without one.

Let me know if you get it. I’ve seen a great video on the internet regarding this saw on lubricating the bearings.

I did end up purchasing it not too long after I posted this :)

I’d love the link to the video if you don’t mind. I know nothing about scrollsawing and have never done it but it seems like something I’d like and even if I end up hating it for whatever reason I can still see many times in my shop where I could use a scroll saw (already had about 10 moments like that before purchasing).

I wish they said how long the sale would be good for. I might pick one up.

It’s the “gold box deal of the day” so I presume it’s only good for a few more hours.
