I was looking to replace my old Dewalt 20" scrollsaw. I had lost it several years ago and couldn't afford another, so I had been making do with various cheaper16" saws. None came close to the quality and ease of use of the Dewalt, so, when I came into the money, I came to Amazon for a replacement.

This Delta saw was right next to the Dewalt and the price is $80 lower, so I took a look at it. The first thing I determined was that it is a parallel link design. I have vowed that I will never buy another parallel arm saw.

What's the difference between parallel link and parallel arm? It's complicated, but parallel link has less vibration, all controls are right in front, and blades are easier and much quicker to move from hole to hole. Several commenters said that it was the same saw as the Dewalt, just with a different label, paint, and a lower price, so I thought I'd give it a try.

I have only used it for a couple of weeks but so far I love it. I built my own heavy duty wooden stand for it which works very well. It is made with 4x4s, 2x4s and 3/4 plywood top and 1/2 plywood bottom, all scraps from around the shop.

Stand is very heavy to absorb vibrations from the saw. I used 12 inch drawer slides left over from another project and bought good lockable wheels at Lowes. You could probably land a helicopter on it but I am a retired engineer so I overbuild everything.

I didn't like the DeWalt stand, looks top heavy and unwieldy, too tall and narrow. I am old and I like to sit if I can. I use it in front of a big gulp dust collection hood next to it with the blower blowing dust into the big gulp so I capture most of the dust except what is underneath which I get with my vacuum.

I bought this saw a couple of weeks ago when it was on sale for 69$. It's a great product for it's price. You can see in the pictures a few of the things that I have cut using this saw.

I am new to this hobby and these are my first cuts. As this is a cheap device, it comes with its own flaws. First noticeable flaw is that the saw is without vibration upto medium speed and if you go to the high speed it wants to jump around.

This maybe amplified by the fact that my table is not the most stable table. Another problem is that the original insert has giant gaps which makes cutting intricate details difficult and if you are not careful it can cause your narrow pieces to break.

However, it was really easy to make a zero-clearance insert for it which I made from some leftover parts. It makes a huge difference as you can make your insert flush with the table. Also, the bottom blade holder is really not accessible which makes working with pinless blades really difficult.

Found a bit difficult to adjust the right amount of pressure (I'm using a guitar tuner in order to adjust the tension on the saw, like piano strings I pinch them in order to get the same tune every time at same frequency)and right speed on the blade, broke few blade...

But after few days of working with it I was able to cut very precise and fine cut in different wood for shadow theater. The machine doesn't vibrate and noise is very reasonable. The blade are easy to change and accept blade with and without pin end.

The plate rotate witch allow you to make different angle cut. Good quality after all for the price.100% satisfied

First let me say that now that I realize what an idiot I was this is an awesome saw. I say I was an idiot because I couldn't get it do rip cuts for the life of me. I am putting down laminate flooring and couldn't get the thing to make even cuts down the length of a board no matter how I lined up the guide.

I even used a tape measure and measured from the guide to the blade and from the guide to the back end mount that goes in-between the kerf. Here's where I went wrong and hopefully I can save you some trouble.

I bought another brand of t-shank blades specifically made for laminate flooring. They cut great, but... They are too thin so the kerf won't line up with the back end that mounts to the platform, its beveled where the kerf is suppose to meet it so if you use the Rockwell blades the board slides right through.

I got my saw a couple days ago. I make a lot of wooden crafts so I was anxious to try this out. I normally use a full size scroll saw so my expectations are a bit high. I was not disappointed.

I used it on 3/4" pine and 1 1/2" pine. It handles the 3/4" better than my big saw. It will cut the 1 1/2" but you do have to go a bit slower. Actually you aren't going any slower than a bigger saw. I spent over 5 hours in my work shop today and most of it using the dremel scroll saw.NO issues at all.

The blade never broke. I am very tuff on grading tools and this one gets an "A". The only difference in this one and a bigger one is the throat depth. You can work around that with out any problems also.

The blade changes easier than a bigger saw also. Another plus is the size. I have it attached to my workbench. My big saw is on a stand taking up room I could use for something else. I will probably sell my bigger saw.

This tool did exactly what I needed it to do. I was making custom radio mounts for my Sons Boston Whaler. I t allows me to cut the plastic very precisely and easily to make the mounts for various radios to mount into his center console.

This saw is adequate for my needs. It came to me with a pin blade and blade guard in place. The feet, screws, allen wrench, flexible dust blower and two extra blades were in a sealed bag. The feet and flexible hose were easily attached, using just my left hand.

I made sure all knobs were securely screwed in place. Having tested the saw on my level work bench I found that there is vibration increasing with ever higher speed adjustments. Removing the feet and applying rubber washers and " lag bolts to attach it directly to the bench significantly reduced the vibration.

I might add here that for my purposes I will be using only the lower ranges on the speed dial. However, I'm confident that if I should want to tackle a 1-2" wood project this saw will be very handy.

It runs smoothly and quietly. My arthritic hands are no longer able to use a utility knife, X-acto knife, linoleum knife, scissors etc. For cutting shapes out of dense materials such as book board, craft foam, gasket materials, cork etc.

Good for light woodworking.Quality is good. I use it for up to 1/4 inch spruce and other woods. I did use it for some oak and see that that slows it down a bit but it still did the job.

Motor speed control is good. I also got it with the foot pedal which lets me have both hands holding the workpiece while stsrting and stopping the saw.Overall very happy.

After I ordered this Rockwell I read the reviews and wish I had maybe ordered a better one. However after receiving it and using it I am more than pleased with my choice. To lessen the vibration I put it on 3 pieces of vibration damper and it is perfect.

I do a lot of scroll saw work and this saw is perfect in all respects for me. I would highly recommend it to anyone. My last scroll saw lasted 25 years ( another brand) but I'm sure this one will last longer than I will.

My son & grandson will enjoy it too after me.

Okay first of all, I run a small woodworking business call J Whaley Woodcrafts that specializes in small furniture and artwork made of wood. So I know a thing or two about scroll saws but unfortunately I cannot afford the Excalibur that I dream of.

With that said I've learned on a craftsman scroll saw as with all other Craftsman tools that have all been upgraded to Makita. Unfortunately the Makita scroll saw is not available to us here in the United States. So I had to choose another scroll saw for the business.

With that said If you're looking at scroll saws on Amazon you may notice that every single one of them is the exact same design. From the Harbor Freight to the Wen to the shop Fox to every other scroll saw for under $150.

The fact is they are all made in the exact same Factory in China and just have a different sticker slapped on them and then you pay for the sticker that you want when the scroll saw is not worth more than $75.

Despite the two negative reviews (at the time of my writing) about this scroll saw, I took a chance and ordered it anyway, mainly because I had purchased a Rikon 10" bandsaw (model 10-305) some months ago and have been very happy with it.

The scroll saw arrived quickly and was well packaged and in good shape. Unlike another reviewer, I found the owner's manual quite useful, with complete specs, an exploded assembly drawing with numbered call-outs and a complete parts list. The assembly instructions were terse but quite adequate, as were the operating instructions.

The manual was ever bit as good as most I've seen with other equipment I've bought recently. It's difficult for me to imagine why anyone would call the manual "worthless," although that reviewer's poor grammar, spelling and punctuation may provide a clue.

1.This scroll saw is awesome!2. The directions for setup are clear.3. Jet makes excellent prosumer and professional shop toolsI upgraded from a craftsman that I learned on. I'd say this saw is not really for beginners mainly because if you want to make just a couple things and be done with the hobby then buy a cheaper saw.

If you want to really get into scrolling then this is great saw that will last you a long while. I gave the saw 4 stars because I feel like it vibrates too much at the highest speed and I do have it mounted to a heavy cabinet on hd wheels.

To alleviate this, I put sound deadner (you read that right: search Noico) on my cabinet and on the saw and it helped dramatically. Another way to fix this is to just buy the 21in Jet (but it costs 400 more)This saw is made at the same factory as the Seyco, and King in Taiwan.

Setup is fast and easy and operation is intuitive. I immediately added a shop-built mobile cabinet base so the operator can be seated comfortably. Since more expensive versions of this saw come with a foot switch, I also added an after-market push-on-push-off foot switch, and I am happy with the result.

I had used an OLD Dremel scroll saw for years and was wary of the plain-end blades when I finally decided to get a new saw. But after one session using this saw I had acquired the muscle memory I needed to move the blade to the next pre-drilled hole without any fumbling.

The saw is very well made with a thick steel frame, a nice finish and ergonomic controls. An afterword on the foot switch: Scroll sawyers mention online that the built-in switch on these saws (any brand) can wear out from constant use in pierced cutting.

This seems to be a generic Chinese made scroll saw that shares the same design as many differently branded scroll saws. I assume that they are all basically the same saw but some of them have different blades chuck designs.

Out of the box this saw needed some work to tune it and align it. I replaced the blade chucks with the after market Pegas chucks and that was just about the best thing I could have done. It works like a charm now.

If you buy this saw, don't think about that, just do it! And it will take care of the problem others are having with blade screws stripping since the Pegas chucks are made from aircraft grade aluminum and not cast aluminum.

The upper arm is very stiff and even after loosening the bolts it is very hard to move. But I don't need to move it often so I decided not to let that bother me. The lower blade guard was being hit by the lower arms and making a lot of noise but after removing the table and bending it out of the way it is no longer a problem.
