Love It!!!

I have had this Scroll Saw for 20+ years. Sadly it is now giving me some problems. I am trying to figure out how to repair it. But, it might just be time for a replacement. No doubt in my that I would buy another 788. I believe it is the best one out there. I've had others and there is no comparison.

Nearly perfect

I had to replace my 30 year old saw and this one works beautifully with the exception of the hold down arm. I make a lot of name plates using narrow boards and the arm loses contact with the wood and I ended up having to remove it and apply added pressure to the wood to keep it from vibrating.

Have had 6 scroll saws since the 1980's, then I bought a Refurbished DW788 in 2000, used it almost everyday for plaques, sign work, and enjoyment. Then it just snapped and smoked in December. Researched online and found the best deal for the best scroll saw I've ever had (DW788). New one is smoother and quieter but the armature rattles a bit more than the old one. But I still love it.

second saw.

I have had a 788 for three years. I thought it was great, til I got this new 788. This saw is so much smoother, quieter, and cuts better than the old saw. I intend to find out why.

Terrific so far!

Outside of an local case of address dyslexsia in delivery, I've been very pleased with this scroll. In every way it has ex-
ceeded my expectations. The tilt arm for changing interior cuts is fast and easy along with the adjustable, "automatic" tensioning. I haven't even bolted this saw down yet and their is little to no vibration.
