I purchased DW 788 Scroll Saw with stand and light a month ago, since then I have used it on several wood craft project, one was angel wings. The DW 788 is an excellent scroll saw for the price and quality great saw for beginners thru professional woodwork.
I ordered this Friday October 5th 2018 and received it this morning October 9th all three orders shipped at the same time all in different boxes and all arrived at the same time all parts there and nothing broken I put it all together in no time and everything works great the only thing I had to do was level the table it was off by almost a eighth of an inch easy fix with a level and reset the zero position and already made 3 intricate pieces Im glad I got the deal I did on everything the saw, the light, and the stand the saw alone sells for much more If this is how grizzly takes care of their customers I'm in for life. The only thing I regret is not getting one sooner it's everything it's hyped up to be and more thank you very very much Richard . P. Ohio
This saw really is the bees knees. Lots of cool features, and the best price on the net.
The best scroll saw at the best deal on the market! I have never been happier with a product or company. I also have a grizzly drum sander and I love it. This order showed up In 2 days, saving it sitting on my porch. A+++++
The DW788 is a really good saw. The fact that the upper arm lifts up was enough for me to want to purchase this product, it saves so much time. The saw runs smooth with little to no vibration also. I would definitely buy this again!
This is the smoothest running piece of equipment in my shop. I can stand a nickel on edge, turn the machine on and the nickel doesn't move. I'm still learning about blade types, cutting speed and the like but having fun.
I have had the scroll saw for almost one month, it was delivered a couple hours after a significant storm with straight line winds had hit us. We were without power for the next 5 days, I assembled the stand and mounted the machine and had to wait another 4 days for power. I am very pleased with the saw and the great deal that Grizzly had this for, it was well over $100.00 less than the local stores when you comparably equipped their offers. Locally just the scroll saw cost what I paid for the saw, the stand, and the light from Grizzly and shipping was fast and only $23.00. I have been using it and am getting better at scroll sawing and am enjoying it. Overall very satisfied and will look forward to dealing with Grizzly again in the future.
I am very happy with my saw . Also very happy with the short time it took to reach ieve it. It is everything I hoped for.
By far the best scroll saw I have ever owned. very little vibration smooth running cuts like a dream
I could not be happier a little pricey but worth it.
Excellent product. Mostly assembled upon arrival. Fired right up and hasn't had a problem since. Grizzly has best deal that includes the light and stand.
I purchased the above item through Grizzly, as they had the best price and even included a stand and light for less than I could buy the saw alone anywhere else. However, when I received the item, it was defective, in that the blade would not track properly, giving an uneven cut. I contacted Customer service and they told me to ship it back to them. I did as they instructed, and in a very short while I had been sent a new saw, which works just fine. It is nice to be able to deal with a company and people who are sincere in their efforts to satisfy the customer. You guys are great.
I bought this product a month ago so I can't comment on it's durability, but it seems fairly sturdy. My amazement is the steadiness of the control arm, the ease of switching blades, tensioning, and moving the blade from location to location. The most impressive part by far is the sound, I could (but I don't) run this in the middle of our living room while watching TV and have n problem hearing.
The Dewalt scroll saw is a great saw. The only problem I had is that the work light didn't come with a bulb like the package said it did. When I told Grizzly about the light they said there was nothing they can do because it's manufacturer packaging that I would have to contact Dewalt. When I contacted Dewalt, they said they didn't sell the lights individually that I would have to order one from somewhere else
Great product--Buying from Grizzly was fast and easy--shipped and arrived on time--set up was easy--it is so much more fun and easier to use than the old scroll saw that was my Dads. The only problem is that i keep playing with this scroll saw and not getting my yard work done. Thanks Dave
Great product. Our campers are really enjoying the scroll saw as a new activity here at camp. The sales rep was wonderful to work with!
Bought this a few months ago and it is great! Quality product and comes with great instructions. You need two people to put it together though. Quiet and easy to get used to. Love that it came with a stand and light. You definitely need the light! I got the Scrollnado dust collection system as well and that is an amazing addition!
This saw is AWESOME. It took me almost a day to figure how to attache the blade to the bottom of the saw. it is WORTH getting the Stand and Light.
I wish I had purchased this product long before now, it is truly the best I have had the pleasure of using. Great piece of equipment. Excellence just got better. Thank you Leo F.
I love, love, love this saw!! It's so much easier to use than my old basic saw that used pinned blades. This is so much better for small, tight cuts. The deal from Grizzly was the best I found and shipping was quick. The stand is also very sturdy. I highly recommend this saw.
Bought a saw for $199 at a big box store but returned it after two weeks. It felt like a light weight, vibrated and blade change was difficult. Sprung for the more expensive Dewalt and the difference is night and day. This scroll saw is worth every penny. I use it everyday.
I bought this scroll saw setup for my husband within the last month and he couldn't be happier. Loves the saw, it was an excellent price and the shipping was very fast. Thanks Grizzly.
The shipment was on time and in goo condition.
I was disappointed that there was not a comprehensive manual for the saw.
I was very happy with grizzly service as usual.
It is going to take some getting used to but I expected that
I just upgraded my scroll saw to the DeWalt. I couldn't be happier with the machine or the service from Grizzly. Will definitely buy from Grizzly again.
I called around to several Dewalt dealers, no one Home Depot and others were "afraid" to match the price. That's fine, I feel I got the best deal on the planet. I was dismayed that Grizzly sales staff could not pinpoint the delivery. In my hood they will steal gas from your car going down the road.
Order was received promptly. It was easy to setup and use. Light did not work, but it probably would have been useless since goose neck would not stay in place. I purchased a foot pedal and LED magnifying light from other companies, and I would highly recommend these accessories. Very pleased with the operation of the scroll saw.
I have not yet used the scroll saw but delivery and price could not be beat.
I have been searching to upgrade my scroll saw and couldn't be happier with my decision to purchase this model from Grizzly. The service from Grizzly was once again top notch. The deal including the stand was better than just purchasing the saw alone from anyone else. Thanks again Grizzly for another satisfied purchase.
bought this a month ago and I am glad I did, very good price which included the stand and the light, fast shipping, wife already has projects lined up for me
I was able to purchase my DeWalt scroll saw at a great price. For the cost of the saw itself, I also scored a stand and light, saving me $100. The unit was out of stock when I placed my order, but I was pleasantly surprised when I received notification that the unit was again available in less than two weeks.
The only setback occured when I received the shipping information from Grizzly, and the UPS expected delivery date fell on a date I wouldn't be at home to take delivery. I contacted Grizzly Customer Service via email, and received a call from them the next day. The caller infomed me that changing the delivery date would cost $15 per box, so my three-box order would fetch an additional $45. She said UPS was very strict on shipping estimates, and the only other option was to let UPS attempt delivery, and if they didn't just drop the order and leave it, they would set another delivery date at that time. Facing the prospect of losing my day waiting, or paying the extra $45, I contacted UPS. By signing up for their free MyUPS program, they would change the delivery date for $5/box. They also informed me I could have the shipment delivered to a local UPS center and pick it up there at no additional charge. I was able to get confirmation of the shipment arrival at a local center, and picked it up early in the morning, saving my day. I'm not angry with Grizxly Customer Service, just wish they had been a little more up-to-date re delivery options.
Still happy with my new saw and the deal I got.
I told my husband this was what I wanted for Christmas and he was shocked! It does everything that I was told it would do and I especially like the ease of changing the blades. Great for making puzzles out of photos!
This scroll saw has all the features I was looking for. The light could be a little brighter however.
I bought this saw about a month a go, I have made a few compound Christmas ornaments with it, it does an awesome job the blades are very easy to change, I added a dead man foot switch and that made useing the saw dream to use.
I bought this item about a month ago. Then promptly got the 2018 Flu. haven't used it . I know the item
will be nice maybe this week.
Delivered fast, some assembly, all parts fit well,good sturdy base. Light still on back order. Cut some 3/4" Oak for puzzles, works great with a quality spiral blade
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
I'm just getting into wood working as a hobby, already on my second project with the help of this machine.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 wasnt observed in examining box contents. The saw was packaged well though.
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
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.
I love this saw. My brother envied it! I am just learning how to use it properly, but I love the feel of it.
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
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.
I like everything about it. I have made a few small nice things and with no prior experience.
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!
After lots of research I found the perfect Scroll Saw for my needs at the very best price out there. Thanks !
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?
Better than advertised. Only bummer was the need for the second plug for the light.
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.
Shipped fast, order complete. Put it together in one cold afternoon. Works great.
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 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.
