I have been using it almost everyday since I got it. I have sold four pieces and given three as gifts. The only thing I would change is the knobs for holding the blades in. there are times the lower knob just does not sty tight. But if that is all the trouble I have with it. I would give it a very good rating. It arrived when they said it would. So very happy.
I love my new DEWALT it's just what I expected. I have been on it every day great quality saw.
i bought this a couple of weeks ago and this saw runs very smooth. I had one problem the bulb to light was broken , made several phone calls and finally gave up and bought one myself. Not a lot of money but I expect better customer service than this on a big ticket item.
Was put on sale at a great price and I jumped on it. The srvice from Grizzly was second to none coupled with the fact that due to size and weight of this item I did not feel the shipping cost were out of line. Arrived quickly and undamaged would definitely buy again from Grizzly and would recommend them to my friends. Still have not actually purchasdd a Grizzlly product yet bit would not hesitate to give their machines a try down the road
This is a really good scroll saw. I purchased it about a month ago and have made my first intarsia picture frame with it, a yellow canary with some branches for my daughter. This was the easiest cutting I have done yet. The saw has practically no vibration and cuts true. Buying from Grizzly was a snap and they actually offered the saw with stand and light for less than what the saw costs!
Purchased the scroll saw, stand, and light for $40 less than the closest competitors price for JUST the saw. Shipping was about $25 which I felt was very reasonable considering the saw weighs 60 pounds. Grizzly promptly shipped the item as well. I had used this exact scroll saw before (Dewalt 788) so I knew the product was going to be what I wanted. Very happy with the service grizzly provided. The key to scroll saws is easy blade changes and easy to reach controls. The 788 has both qualities.
I love the Dewalt scrollsaw. This is the second one I have had. The first one lasted over 20 years.
No feedback given
This saw is awesome. It is very quiet, setup was easy and the price couldn't be beat. Thanks Grizzly.
Like this scroll saw unlike the wen you are able to use a verity of pinless blades. My only disappointment is that the arm does not stay up when you changing blades. You either have to prop it up with something or buy a arm holder and that is a additional expense
No issues with the saw or stand. The light bulb for the lamp though was broken in the box package that it came.
I have two of these machines. The new one is for my son and daughter-in-law. They love my saw, so I am confident they will be thrilled Christmas morning.
Bought this to use for detail work with jewelers blades and it works perfectly. A much better option than my old pin blade only saw.
I bought this combo a few weeks ago and couldnt be happier. This is technically my 2nd scroll saw. My first, was a WEN I purchased off of amazon based on the excellent reviews and the price. I quickly realized the WEN wasnt gonna do what I wanted and made the decision to spend the money for a higher quality machine. If youre on the fence about spending the money on a scroll, I will tell you this, its all about the speed and convenience of the blade changes. I didnt know the importance of this when I purchased the entry level scroll saw. Also, most entry level saws use pin blades which is fine for beginner projects but not much else.
This dewalt is AWESOME! I looked at this saw and found it at the big box stores for $489-$499 for just the saw. Looking online I found this combo and couldnt believe the deal. I made the purchase and it arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I had the entire set up put together and making in about 15 minutes.
The stand is rock solid and so is the saw itself. All the adjustments are very conveniently located and blade changes are so easy to make. If there is one small critique it would be the arm doesnt stay in the up position when you release the top of the blade to make an interior fret cut (Im new to scroll saw work so Im not sure if my terminology is correct) but this is not a big deal. Im also not finding the vibration at higher speed problem others are reporting and blade alignment on my saw is perfect. I will probably switch out the light bulb to led (Im so used to led lights that when I had to reposition the light I wasnt paying attention and grabbed the shade and man was it hot. It was pretty funny actually).
I dont have anything bad to say about this set up. I am a hobbyist/weekend warrior. I use this saw to cut out the multiple Xmas decorations you can find online and it works for what I do. I apologize for the pic but couldnt figure out how to rotate, but this is the type of stuff Im using the saw for. After making 2 of these nativities Ive gotten to the point I can cut this out in 23 minutes. The saw is awesome, and I dont have any regrets with the purchase.
Wife had a craftsman that was about a week old and it was noisy and blade changes were not user friendly we read several reviews on this machine and looked in several places finally bought here, several hundred dollars cheaper than a lot of places this machine is quiet and blade changes are a breeze wife loves it we would recommend this to all ranges of experience levels you will never buy another machine of this quality any where near this price the kit is easy to assembly< the stand and light > and you are in business. over all GREAT PRODUCT
Very easy to insert blade. The tensioning level is great. Cuts more smoothly with no kick back compared to other saws. Simple assembly.
I love this machine! Quiet, effective, efficient. With the easy attach light and dust blower, work is so smooth and manageable. The blades it uses are thin and a touch flexible so turns can be sharp and clean. Assembly of the stand was easy and even fun (if you like that kind of process), with a sturdy result. One minor issue is the narrowness of the rail between the lower front and back of the saw. You cant store anything there as the vibration moves things around and they fall off. Hardly a big problem! In the next generation DeWalt should widen the rail and raise the sides of it to contain stored blades, etc. Its a great machine, Grizzly made a great deal on it and shipped it quickly. Im a happy scroller!
DeWalt DW788 is a great scroll saw. Very happy with it. Grizzly is great too. Great quality and shipped on schedule.
Exactly what I expected, love the large work surface. Nice package deal!
Great scroll saw the deal of the year on it. Had it at my house in 3 days. Now I need to get better at those real detailed cuts.
Really wanted to get into scrolling and this deal was just too hard to pass up. Shipped quickly and packed well. Grizzly definitely a great place to do business with.
Very nice combination of saw, stand and light. Box arrived quickly in very good condition and assembly was fairly straightforward. Saw is very smooth and vibration is minimum. Blade changing is straight forward and simple once you get the hang of it. Bulb in light is NOT an LED and gets very hot so I bought an aftermarket LED bulb and it works great. So far the whole experience has been excellent.
I have had this saw for just over a month now. So far no problems very quiet does what I need and want.
As my first scroll saw I could not be mre happy with my pruchase. Tired of saving a few $ on a cheaper model machine and struggle with subpar results. Quiet, smooth, professional results. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to persue the hobby of scroll sawing. Add a lift and foot switch and you are in production mode for craft shows! Keep a thin coat of wax on the cast iron table and some dry gun lube on the bearings and you have a quality piece of equipment that will last a lifetime.
Great scroll saw, stand, and light. Easy to assemble everything. I added a dead-mans pedal to make it even safer and easier to use. Changing out blades is super easy. Ive found that raising the back end of the stand has made it much more comfortable to spend time on the saw. One of my favorite purchases in the last few years.
Love this machine. Quiet and I never have broken a blade yet. Very happy. I wish the hold down was designed al little better.
This saw is very well built, easy to use and change blades. Would definitely recommend.
Have had this saw for one month and its everything all the research I did said it was. Highly recommend.
NOTE: Be sure to buy the light and stand. The light is essential, IMHO.
Been looking around for a scroll saw, saw this deal on a good saw and couldn't pass it up. Very satisfied
Bought this scrollsaw to replace the same model after lots of use. Your prices were outstanding. Order arrived very fast. Could not be more pleased with our purchase!!
Ordered this scroll saw on a Monday and received it on Friday.
Wonderful saw. Use it every day.
Great scroll saw package, best price anywhere.
Slight issue upon unboxing, minor damage to a non critical part. Grizzly went way beyond what I expected them to do to remedy it. I was very impressed with their customer service.
So nice to deal with a competent, honest company!
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.
No feedback given
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
