As far as good points, I really like the heavy cast iron table. Most more expensive saws still have the cast aluminum or stamped steel tables - not as good in my opinion. Motor torque is adequate if you aren't trying to slice through 2x4s. I use mine for inlay and oak clock fronts (3/8" thick, mostly).
Anyway, decent saw for the hobbiest and weekend warrior, but I wouldn't consider it in a production setting.
Second, the chore of installing blades requires 2 people in order to keep the blade from being pushed outward as you tighten. The first blade (the one that came with it), broke immediately when I attempted to tighten it. And oddly that wasn't even yet anywhere near tight.
Third, the Blower is completely useless.
And the largest shortcoming of all is the fact that you cannot use spiral scroll blades with this unit. That means that really there is nothing you can do with this that you can't do with a hand held jig saw. To my fault though, they do clearly state on the box that this saw only works with straight and pin type blades....too bad. Back to Sears it went :-/
I have tried for three days to get the blade in there. I was going to send it back, I put a rag that had goop out up on the arm took the paint off. I decided right then I was going to make that darn thing easyer to blade.
I took off a bunch of unneed plastic. with my demel tool.I can now get my fingers in there I can get pinless fret
blades. I really can't wait for walter the dewalt scroll saw out of the fix it shop.
