Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WD40 Incredible scroll saw!
Though made in Taiwan for DeWalt, this saw is a remarkably well built machine, easy to assemble, easy to adjust blade tension, and blade changing is also very simple. It has a built-in adjustable dust blower that improves your ability to follow the cut line. I especially like the ability to loosen the top blade grip and raise the upper arm to feed the blade through a hole in your workpiece for blind cuts. I was also surprised and very pleased with how quiet the machine is, you can barely hear it running. Love it!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fluffy Best scroll saw
Did a lot of research for scroll saws before settling for the DeWalt model. This is my first scroll saw so I was a little nervous spending this kind of money. Installing the blade was easy as well as tensioning the blade. Came with 2 blades and used them on various pieces of wood ( oak, maple and pine. ) from 1/4" thick to 3/4". Cut through all of them with no problem. Never even broke a blade. Also no vibration problems at all. Bought a foot peddle like several people had advised and it really helps. The table is nice and large and tilts easily . a dust port would have bee nice but I think I can rig something up to take care of that. Over all another great product from DeWalt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fluff Great saw
Easy to assemble. Very solid and well built. Very quick as far as set up. Installing the blade is a breeze as well as tensioning the blade. I have mine just sitting on my work bench and had no problem with any vibrations. Couldn't wait to try it and I was very happy with it. Came with 2 blades and I used them to try it out seeing I have never had a scroll saw before. Cut through 3/4" oak and maple with no problems. Bought some better blades from woodcraft and can't wait to try them . Also cut 1/4" plexiglass and was impressed how smooth the cut was. Picked up a foot peddle to use with it and had no problems with that either. A very nice saw. Little pricey but worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RD Very good saw
This saw is very easy to use and very quiet. I was very surprised when I turned it on and used it. I would very much recommend getting the stand that goes with it so that you have the manuverability to use the saw more effectively. I can't say enough good things about this saw. The ease of putting the blade on and off is so easy. I was going to get a cheaper saw just to get by, but I'm so glad I didn't. Well worth the money if you are going to be using it more than just a few times.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bro Great Scroll Saw
Although very heavy, this is a very easy to use scroll saw. Blade changes are a snap. I got a "starter" saw for Christmas 15 years ago by Dremel. It finally stopped working after dozens of big projects so I had to replace it. Now I'm wishing I made the decision to go with a DeWalt years ago. It's quiet and smooth with adjustable speed, all easy to use. Worth the extra pennies.

I had an old Sears professional scroll saw that broke after a lot of usage. I purchased the Dewalt and there is a major difference in performance. The controls are convenient and easy to understand. The ease of cutting 90 degree patterns is significant. Small blades are easy to attach and add the proper tension.
