For added convenience and durability, an integrated cast-iron table provides material support, and a flexible dust blower helps keep your work area pristine.Unique Arm Design for Accurate Cuts
A scroll saw needs to perform both reliably and accurately, whether you're crafting custom jigsaw puzzles or designing unique trim pieces. This DEWALT scroll saw's double parallel-link arm design helps it deliver on both fronts by reducing vibration. The specially designed arm pivots from the back of the saw to the front, shortening the distance that the arm needs to move and allowing for smoother, quieter saw operation. With less vibration, you can produce accurate cuts with ease.
This unique arm design also works to keep the saw's blade perpendicular to whatever you're working on, reducing the chance of over cutting or under cutting.
Easy to Handle with Variable-Speed Control
Adding to the saw's intuitive, design are convenient controls engineered by DEWALT to keep your workflow smooth. The saw's on-off switch, speed control, and blade-tensioning lever are all located within easy reach on the front, upper arm. The saw's flexible dust blower is also located on this portion of the arm so it can easily be directed where you need it, keeping your work surface clear of unwanted debris.
The scroll saw's electronic variable-speed control allows you to make quick, accurate adjustments and utilize speeds ranging from 400 to 1,750 strokes per minute. The saw relies on a dependable 1.3 Amp motor for the power you need and delivers a variable stroke length between 3/4 inch and up to 2 inches deep. This application-specific performance translates to improved control and cleaner results.
Save Time with Tool-Free Blade Changes and Adjustable Table
Whether you're working with a variety of specialty materials or you're simply ready for a more aggressive cut, the DEWALT exclusive, tool-free blade clamps allow you to complete blade changes in just seconds. And the arm is easy to lift, making it easy to thread the blade through materials when making inside cuts.
Weighing 56 pounds, this scroll saw has a heavy-duty feel yet is small enough to move around the shop easily. The saw's oversized, cast-iron table provides excellent support no matter what you're working on, and the table bevels 45 degrees to the left and 45 degrees to the right for added versatility.
This 20-inch variable-speed scroll saw comes with a DEWALT warranty package that includes a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money-back guarantee.

I don't have a ton of experience with scroll saws but I own a lot of tools and the design of this thing seems poor. The table does not come with a zero clearance insert and it does not make it easy to manufacture your own. The arm lifts up but it doesn't lock in place and it does not lift high enough to give you a clear view for inserting the blade in small pilot holes. You really need 3 or 4 hands if you want to make a lot of inside cuts. The blades are held in place with screws that twist the blade as they are tightened. It seems like a parallel clamping force would be a better design.
All that said, I've returned the tool and plan to replace it with a $120 Wen scroll saw which I can't imagine will be any more disappointing than the product I just had in my shop.
Update: I just got my $120 Wen scroll saw. Unlike the Dewalt, it came fully assembled and properly calibrated. The material hold down arm is sturdy and easily adjustable. The instruction manual was complete and clear. Designing a zero clearance insert should take less than 5 minutes with some 1/4 plywood. It may be smaller and lighter but it stays put even without being bolted to the table. Only down side is that it is louder than the Dewalt. Even if the Dewalt wasn't 4 times more expensive, I would argue that the Wen saw is a substantially better quality tool.
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 am mostly concerned with dust that I would breath. My air quality meter is usually in the single digits when it is running. I have a large Oneida 3hp dust collector.
It only comes with two cheap blades so buy more and better. I am a beginner scroller but I am getting better quickly with this machine. I use a 4x4 block to hold up the arm when I change blades or do internals as you see in the pics. Maybe the more expensive saw like Henger is better but for now this is good. If I do a lot of scrolling then I could justify a Henger machine but I don't, I work for my enjoyment not for income.
For those who are beginners my best advice is get this saw and when you are learning use spiral blades and go slowly and stop when you start to go off line. I find if I do a little and stop, relax, then do some more and repeat, I get better results. I hope this helps folks.
I will update this in about six months if I am not as happy or I find other problems. These reviews help everyone and especially myself so I like to return the favor. Cheers.

I had relied upon a fret saw, but when working on larger projects, one’s precision tends to falter as the fatigue builds, particularly on ultra fine work with jewellers blades <<5/0.
With my scroll saw, the fatigue accompanying fine work is significantly delayed so that I can see the work through to completion.
As a consequence, my work has not only improved, but I am now able to double the amount of work per day as well.
Just a fantastic item.
