Scroll Saw 1/5/2018

I enjoy using my new DW788 scroll saw. I had an older model and I passed that on to my son. Never give an excellent rating because there is always something that can be improved.

John B

It is everything I expected it to be and then some!

I bought the Dewalt DW788 Scroll Saw with the stand and light combination about a month ago and I have been very pleased with my purchase. Grizzly offered the best price for all three pieces and was the only company to offer the purchase as a set. The only issue I had upon receipt was a shattered light bulb inside the box for the light accessory but it was only a few dollars to replace the appliance bulb from a local hardware store.

Outstanding Scroll Saw, GREAT DEAL! 12/29/2017

I had been shopping for a scroll saw and this one by far and away has the easiest blade change on the market, "hands down". On top of that, Grizzly bundled a deal that enabled me to buy the saw, stand and light with free shipping, cheaper than anyone else out there. Ordering was smooth & efficient and delivery came with no problems or damages. SO HAPPY with my selection!!


I bought this awesome combo for my own Christmas present. Once set up, my two boys got to scrolling and spent nearly the entire day on the machine. I'm looking forward to decompression time on the awesome machine!


I took delivery the beginning of December and came in perfect shape. My scrollsaw is the best along with the rest of the package of light and stand. Great price great service! Thanks!

Average 12/22/2017

The foot is horrible. When the lock is tightened all the way the foot still moves and is distracting when trying to cut the wood. Since it moves it does not keep the wood secured down and thus you have to hold it securely the entire time which can get tiring. I have a 16" dremel scroll saw that the foot was much more secure in holding the pieces down and easier to adjust up and down. As I typically cut small pieces this is important to keep fingers away from the blade as the foot does the work for me. The other thing I don't like is that there is no vacuum attachment for the sawdust to be collected easily. It drops all over the machine and table stand as pieces are being cut. The lamp gets hot and can quite easily burn you as you relocate it around the piece. In saying all that I would still say it is average as there are work arounds and the machine itself does cut the wood nicely when you use the right blades.

Mixed bag 12/22/2017

I finally bought this saw after researching youtube and other review sites. The saw came damaged (also, the stand came pretty beat up - but hey, it's just a stand)- the rear base was shattered into three pieces, Called Grizzly and was immediately told that I cannot return it to Grizzly and had to go through Dewalt authorized repair - contrary to Grizzly's refund policy. Long story short: it took about a week to get Grizzly to take the saw back and send out a replacement - which they refused to expedite. Good tool - lousy customer service. Hence, mixed rating.


Needed a new scroll saw after my Delta Q3 gave out after many years of service, looked into many different brands reading hundreds of reviews/opinions then deciding to give the DeWalt a try. Grizzly had the best offer available anywhere so I pulled the plug and ordered one. Rep at Grizzly was a delite, found out her last name was the same as the city I reside in. Machine arrived withing shipping quidelines and after putting the stand together and playing with it I am slowly learning how to get the most performance from the saw, the parallel arms or the DeWalt work differently than the C-Arm aggressive cut, a little slower speed but cleaner/smoother edges. So far so good!

The right tool to start 12/20/2017

I'm just getting into wood working as a hobby, already on my second project with the help of this machine.

Grizzly had the best deal on a great saw 12/13/2017

The saw with light is great. The stand becomes much more stable when bolted down. I fastened the stand to the Delta universal mobile base, attaching the rear leg to the caster holes using 5 inches of predrilled angle (horizontal angle top) with two longer bolts. No metal drilling on rear, but two holes required for front legs. This setup is very stable, raises the rear leg 1.5 inches, and allows movement around the shop. This was my first buy with Grizzly; they did well!

Saw is solid and customer care great 12/10/2017

The saw is great. This is my fourth scroll saw and is by far the best. Rock solid with low vibration and good power. I would recommend getting a lifter unit to support the arm when changing the blade.

Awesome scroll saw 11/29/2017

I am so pleased with my DW-788 scroll saw !....I started out with a Harbor freight unit that was a good choice to see if I liked scrolling. I than purchased a Porter Cable 18 inch from Lowes for $200. I have never been so disappointed in a tool in my life !....My wife only uses spiral blades in her art work and only replaces blades when they dull or break so I gave it to her...she actually likes it hahaha !....that left the door open for me to get my DW-788 from Grizzly. I got the saw , stand , and light on sale !...what an awesome saw !...I can change blades on this baby with my eyes closed ! If you are looking for a great saw at a great price than this is the saw for you my friend!

Richard F
well known and proven great scroll saw. 11/26/2017

I have wanted one of these for a few years now, but always too expensive. Your sale price could not be beat, so as soon as a friend told me about it, I went online to confirm and ordered it immediately.

Great product. Super fast delivery! 11/16/2017

Great buy and price from Grizzly. Highly recommend Grizzly. 11/16/2017

Love it 11/10/2017

Excellent product and great customer service 11/10/2017

Great Product 11/8/2017

I purchased the DW788 about a month ago and so far it has been fantastic. The great price that Grizzly offered made it possible for me to upgrade from my old Craftsman to this fantastic Dewalt scroll saw. Grizzly made the purchase very easy to do online and it was delivered in the timeframe that was promised. Have already started making some really great Christmas gifts that are looking really good. Thanks Grizzly.

Great Scroll Saw! 11/7/2017

Grizzly offered a great price for the package deal of the scroll saw, stand and light. They also sent it immediately. I am impressed with their prices and service. The scroll saw is great! Extremely low vibration, very quiet and blade changes are simple. The arm holding the blade lifts up so it is easy to manage fretwork. All controls are simple to adjust and easy to access. Highly recommend this product.

Christmas Come Early 11/4/2017

This tool was easy to set up and i was using it within a half hour. I really like DeWalt tools and this is no exception. It felt easy to use and fine line cutting was great.

Great product. 11/3/2017

I got it all assembled, but have not got a chance to use it yet. The only problem that I had was that one of the screw holes in the case where the light mounts was Stripped Out from the factory. Otherwise OK.


I'm new to scrolling and this machine seem to be one of the best. The only problem that I have had with it is the blade does not go straight up and down making tight radius cuts a little challanging. I called Dewalt service and they said that's the way it works. Seems to me that hte blade should go straight up and straight down. Other than that is is a great machine for the money.

Patrick D
DeWalt is great stuff 11/1/2017

this works perfectly, the variable speed is amazing and cuts are made easy. The price was a $100 dollars lower then any other sale I saw on line and grizzly furnished the light, none of the other stores included the light.

Willie B
I'm HAPPY! 11/1/2017

I am enjoying it. I have made a few projects and love the stability of the Dewalt. Now it is time finish my Christmas projects.

Still getting acquainted 11/1/2017

I bought this saw because it was on sale for the best price I've ever seen on it. We saw a demonstration of the saw years ago and have wanted one ever since, but it was too expensive. The timing wasn't too good for us, because we're in the midst of a couple of large projects, so we haven't had much opportunity to use it yet. I have tried it a couple of times and found a couple of items I don't like, but overall, we're pleased with it and hope to get my wife to use it too. The items I'm not happy about are the work light and the hold down. The light gets extremely warm, although it's only a 25-watt bulb. I'm hoping I can find a suitable LED bulb to replace it, but the candelabra base is hard to duplicate in LEDs. I'm seriously considering doing away with the hold down altogether. It's too large and obscures the view of the blade. My eyesight isn't great and I already have trouble seeing the blade. The saw it's replacing is a 60+year old Sears belt driven jigsaw. This saw is surely a few steps forward from that.

Works Great 10/31/2017

I bought this to replace a scroll saw I had. With the other brand I had such a hard time cutting with it. Learning was very frustrating. What a huge difference the DeWalt makes. The cuts are easy and it is now fun.

Wally C

This is one tool I have been wanting to add to my shop for quite sometime, Grizzly had a Great deal on this setup. Good quality product, machine performs very well with no vibration. I don't think you could expect any thing more from a Scroll saw.

jonathan B
best price I could find 10/29/2017

Bought this packaged deal cheaper than most sells just the saw for. First unit came damaged but a few emails and a phone call all was well. They picked up the damaged saw and sent another. No problems.

Product received and initial review 10/29/2017

The machine is a good mid-price range machine. Performs well. The flexible dust blower was cracked on the end that connects to the machine, so a replacement was ordered right off the bat. Also, the included clamp knobs were not packaged prominently and could “get away” from the customer if great care wasn’t observed in examining box contents. The saw was packaged well though.

Great product 10/28/2017

The DeWalt scroll saw is a great product! 10/28/2017

My previous DeWalt (over 17 years of use) is still in my workshop and is still doing great work. My new DeWalt is also in the shop and is getting a workout in cutting new items. Grizzly was excellent in customer service in purchasing the new saw. The new saw arrived at my home in less than two days from the phone call order. Dan

Great product 10/28/2017

Best value and buy on the market. 10/27/2017

I have been looking at (and wanting) the DeWALT DW788 for some time. I just couldn't bring myself to pay the price ($500 to $600 without stand or light) that most retailers were asking. Even on Craig's list they wanted $400 and over in used condition without the stand and light. Then I got an email from Grizzly offering it for $399 with stand and light, Jumped on that real quick. Working with Grizzly is always a pleasure even when there was a delivery problem, they fixed it quick. I looked at a lot of other scroll saws but IMHO it beats all others hands down (what ever the phrase "hands down" means) even the higher priced scroll saws. It is one smooth machine. Easy to operate with all the controls up front and easy to get to. Blades are a snap to change. The machine is ruggedly built and very quiet. The only drawback to the machine is the upper arm. It does not stay up on its own. You must use a support when changing blades. That is easily remedied with an after market support, I just use a piece of 2x4 under the arm. All in all, if you can get this machine for under $400 with stand and light you got one heck of a bargain.

Excellent saw! 10/27/2017

I love this saw. My brother envied it! I am just learning how to use it properly, but I love the feel of it.

great product at a very reasonable price 10/21/2017

received my saw and accessories yesterday. saw works great , stand was easy to assemble, the only drawback was the bulb for the light was shattered in shipping but its a light bulb its going to happen. received my saw in 2 days. grizzly is a great place to buy woodworking tools at great prices.hope to buy a lot more tools to add to my collection and someday would like to visit the store in Missouri. thank you

Highest rating for De Walt tools 10/19/2017

Awesome product! I have used De Walt products for ages and have never had a problem. Grizzly's service was outstanding! This item went on sale a week after I bought it and Grizzly refunded me the difference in what I had paid, no questions asked. I'm a customer for life.

great 9/9/2017

I like everything about it. I have made a few small nice things and with no prior experience.

Great saw - questionable product provided 6/30/2017

I would highly recommend the saw but I was not happy with the initial delivery (which is why I'm not giving 5 stars -The saw is indeed 5 star worthy). The stand had rusted bolts & the saw came with no instruction manual & missing pieces which made me believe the product I was provided was not brand new like it was depicted to be upon the time of purchase. Based on the amount of money I dropped on this & the description of new equipment I expected not to have issues. Customer service however was helpful and accepted a full refund and replacement. So in the end it worked out & I love the second saw I received... just make sure what you're getting is what you expect!

Perfection! 6/1/2017

Rodney M

One of the best tools I own. Love to create things and very relaxing.

Perfection 6/1/2017

After lots of research I found the perfect Scroll Saw for my needs at the very best price out there. Thanks !

Great scroll saw! 2/13/2017

I bought this in November for a Christmas present but decided to give my husband a different item. His birthday, for which I kept the saw, just passed, He was so excited he immediately set it up, bought some blades and tried it out. Yep, I picked well and your saw is great. Now, what should I get him for our anniversary?

Love it! Only one bummer... 1/29/2017

Better than advertised. Only bummer was the need for the second plug for the light.

Really nice saw 1/26/2017

This was my Christmas gift from my wife and I absolutely love it! The set up was easy and the saw works so much better than my old scroll saw.

Great Product! Great Company 1/26/2017

Fantastic package deal 1/26/2017

Shipped fast, order complete. Put it together in one cold afternoon. Works great.

Great Product Great Price Great Shipping 1/25/2017

I was in the market for a Scroll Saw for my small workshop and after much research decided on this Dewalt and found it at Grizzly with Light and Stand and Free Shipping for the price of only the saw anywhere else. Arrived fast and safe. Easy to set up and operates just as expected. Very Happy with this purchase.

Great Saw! Light needs some work. 3/13/2016

Great saw and very fast delivery (3 days). Be careful when installing the light, the extension tube for the light is very heavy and does not stand up under full extension. Mine dropped about 6 inches to the table top and broke the bulb. This size bulb is not real common so it took some checking around to find one. I zip tied the tube to the upper arm of the saw to hold it in position.
