The DEWALT 20 in. Variable-Speed Scroll Saw helps you create accurate, detailed workpieces and has a user-friendly configuration with easily accessible controls, reduced vibration design and variable-speed performance. Featuring a double parallel-link arm design for accurate cuts, the arm pivots from the back to the front, shortening the distance the arm moves for smoother, quieter operation. Easy to handle with variable-speed control for application-specific performance, the on/off switch, speed control, blade-tensioning lever and flexible dust blower are all located within easy reach of the front upper arm. The dependable 1.3 Amp motor delivers 400 to 1750 SPM for plenty of power, while the compact design makes portability around your jobsite or workshop a breeze. Durable for years of reliable use, this saw has a cast iron table that bevels 45 Degree to the left and 45 Degree to the right for versatility and also provides excellent support.
  • Double parallel-link arm design dramatically reduces vibration and noise for accurate cuts
  • Exclusive tool-free blade clamps allow blade changes in seconds for less downtime
  • On/off switch, electronic variable speed, flexible dust blower and blade-tensioning lever are all located on the front upper arm for easy accessibility
  • Arm design pivots from the back of the saw to the front, shortening the arm movement for smoother, quieter operation
  • Arm lifts so blade can be easily threaded through the material for inside cuts
  • Unique arm design keeps the blade perpendicular to the work, reducing over or under cutting
  • Oversized, cast-iron table provides excellent material support and bevels 45 Degree left and right
  • Includes: 20 in. variable-speed scroll saw, hex wrench and blades

Customer Questions & Answers

What is the thickest piece of wood that this saw can accommodate?

Asked by: Wyman
I havet cut a 2x4 but it is slow. 1x4 and any other like plywood is a breeze.
Answered by: Woodpecker
Date published: 2016-11-17

Does this saw require a stand or can it be used on a bench top?

Asked by: leapold
I am sure that it could be used on a bench top if it was fastened securely, but the leg set that is made for this saw is excellent and gives you more versatility of the tool. Since I cut pieces that are as large as 15 X 36 inches, bench top would not work for me, but even if I were only cutting small pieces, I would still prefer the leg set that is made specifically for this saw. If I were doing smaller items, as I have done in the past, I could comfortably sit on a stool and cut with this setup.

Does this come with both the top and bottom thumbscrew/clamp to tighten the blade?

Mine's came with just the top thumscrew, but no thumbscrew at the bottom unlike what's illustrated in the manual

What type of blades does it except.

pin blades or painless. ?
Asked by: Karlos
The 788 takes a 5 inch plain end scroll saw blade. One CANNOT use a "pin end" scroll saw blade. There are many types of scroll saw manufacturers as well as configuration types. One needs to determine the product he/she is using and which blade will perform best. Two of the best blades out there are the Olson and the Flying Dutchman blades. Since I cut 16 puzzle pieces from a 12.7/8 X 10 inch piece of 1/2 inch birch plywood, I use an Olson Mach Speed 3.

20 in. Variable-Speed Scroll Saw is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 137.

My only negative was that the instruction book mentioned nothing about how to true up the blade before use. You simply can't rely on the base angle adjustment being 100% accurate. It would also be nice to include blade tightening as a part of the instructions.

Though somewhat pricey, it is everything as advertised and more. I have lost my fine motor (fingers) skills to a progressive muscle disorder. Changing blades in on my old Craftsman was a 20 minute affair. Now with the help of a "blade removal tool" which I've modified for my dexterity problems, tightening the pressure on both the top and lower blade thumb screws is a snap. For someone who wants to see what this "blade removal tool" is like, go to You Tube and enter Scroll saw blade removal tool for DeWalt and Excalibur machines.

That's basically what I wanted. It's heavy enough that not being able to lift it by the upper arm (only if used as a portable) is a bit of a negative, but maybe that's common to most scroll saws. I don't know. The flexible dust blower has enough links to it to actually do it's job without getting in the way. Couldn't say that for the Porter Cable version. Lacking is a work light, but I found exactly what I wanted for that elsewhere. (FAJ 30 LED 12-inches flexible gooseneck). Perhaps best of all, Home Depot had it at a price that beat anything I could find on the internet! Hopefully, I'll be able to upgrade my 4 star rating after I've had time to really put it to use.

Should have purchased much sooner. Clear, accurate / precision cuts every time. No shortcomings at all. Would recommend this Dewalt to all.

A good saw overall, with only one thing that really needs to be improved; that is the adjustable "clamp" that holds the wood against the table. It is bent so more pressure is on front and very little on back of pieces being cut. I put it in a vise and tried to bend it with no success. I cut some small pieces and it just does not do what it is designed to do so I just took it off and have learned to hold the piece down by hand which is a little hard to do but with practice has worked out. Other than that it is a pretty good tool.

I've had this saw for about a month now and have completed a couple of projects with it. The saw was a huge improvement over saws I have used in the past. It is rock solid with little or no vibration. The large, smooth table allows more than enough room for most projects and is big enough to prevent sagging off the edge. The table angles were accurate right out of the box. The only drawback I can mention is that the head does not stay up on its own when raised. There is a 3rd party fix for this that I purchased for about $20.
