Details

  • Arm design pivots from the back of the saw to the front, shortening the arm movement for a smoother, quieter operation

  • Unique arm design keeps the blade perpendicular to the work, dramatically reducing over or under cutting
  • Oversize cast-iron table provides excellent material support and bevels 45 degrees left and right

Years of durable, heavy use
This is a great saw that I have been using for many years....trouble free. I would highly recommend that Dewalt install an auto arm holder device that I had to purchase separately from another firm. This is an absolute must for the scroller who enjoys fine scrolling with minimal effort....making this a great tool!!

Great saw but needs one improvement.
This is a great tool. The only thing I don't like about the DEWALT scroll saw is the hold-down device. It is difficult to adjust and inadequate for use on small parts. I do most of my cutting without it. Surely DEWALT can come up with something better. I intend to make my own hold-down device to use on the saw. Most scroll saws on the market have very good hold-down devices. The DEWALT saw is the best available in the price range. They just need to improve this one feature. Overall, it is a great tool. I highly recommend it over any other scroll saw at or below its price range. You won't go wrong with this saw.

Fast delivery Quality Product
I got this just in time to enhance the christmas decorations. It works great, all the controls are up front, low vibration, and quiet operation add to the hours of enjoyment using this tool. Only drawback is the upper arm. It is designed to lift up but it will not stay up without assistance. There are some after market rigs that solve this problem.

Great saw the only improvement would be to enlarge the whole in the base to acommidate a 1/2" scroll sander belt. The 1/4" belts work, just a little tight.

AS GOOD AS THE REVIEWS SAY!
I have seen this tool in friend's wood shops for years and am thrilled to have it in my collection.

The delivery & packaging were exceptional and being able to get the saw, light and table for a price that many others sell the saw for was icing on the cake! Tylertool.com is my go to site!!

Will this saw ship to Singapore?
Simon on Jun 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Cpo does not ship outside of the USA. Please contact Dewalt directly for more shipping options. 800-433-9258
I understand the overall length of the saw is approximately 29". This would include the plate which sticks out over the base. I need to know the length of the base to see if it will fit on my 24" deep work bench. Thank you...
marti on Feb 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: From stem to stern the saw is 33" overall. The base is 25.5" long and
10.5" wide. It's a great saw, so if you have to bolt it to a piece of
plywood and then screw that to the bench it would do you well.
(1) What is the footprint (for determining stand base size needed) for this.

(2) Do you sell the DeWalt stand and if so how much is it?
Pop on Feb 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Here are the product dimensions: 29.5 x 19.5 x 12.1 inches. DeWalt also makes a scroll saw stand, Item #813079, which fits this saw.
Is there a port to connect to dust collector?
N/A on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, this tool does not included a dust port
Can you use jeweler's saw blades so you can cut through metal like silver and brass? Can it handle very small blades?
Liz the metalsmith on Jul 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The DeWalt DW788 uses "plain end" or "straight" type blades.
Will the Dewalt scroll saw fit my current stand (Sears/Craftsman contractor series 20 variable speed saw) which I have on hand now? I am wanting to replace my current scroll saw that I mentioned with the Dewalt dw788 will it fit my stand
Marty on Oct 18, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately, we are unable to confirm your current scroll saw stands compatibility. Our best advise would be to use the dimensions of Dewalt's scroll saw stand and compare those dimensions to your scroll saw stand. The dimensions for Dewalt's stand is:
34.2 x 5.9 x 4.1 inches (L x W x H)
does this machine use both types of blades?
Floyd on Oct 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The DeWalt DW788 uses "plain end" or "straight" type blades.
just assembling the saw, and can't get the table to fully insert on the pin. It looks like shy about 2 mm so cant the screws into the table bottom. The pin looks like there is a band ot material at the base end which wasn't shaved off and holds the table out. Ideas ? please
Gary on Mar 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Your question will be best answered by the manufacturer, who can more accurately provide technical support. Please call DeWalt directly at 800-433-9258 or visit them online at www.dewalt.com.
Why is this reconditioned one $499 when a new one is sold for $497 at big retailers? Shouldn't this one be a tad bit less expensive?
Cathy the wood worker on Dec 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The reconditioned scroll saw is retailing for $419.99 and new at $549.99
Do you ship to Malaysia?
