The saw's adjustable cast-iron table provides ideal support for projects.
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 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.
The tension knob has numbers on it so you can get the tension the same each time with each different blade. No guessing where to turn a knob.
The blades ARE very easy to put in! Blade changing has always been a pain with other saws so I don't know why this is so easy. I barely tighten the knob (wimpy girl) (no wrench needed) and the blade is in. Maybe there is something inside the blade holder that is different and holds blades in place better than the others without the excessive tightening.
The blower actually works and having a long, bendable arm, you can position it where you want.
The lower blade guard was in the way so I took it off. I always turn off the power strip when I change blades so I feel safe doing this although it is certainly "not recommended".
The upper arm can be raised to make it easier to insert the top part of the blade into your project for inside cuts. I cut a piece of wood to hold the arm up when I do this. Yes, Dewalt has been informed of this oversight and may put something on the arm next time to hold it up.
The best accessory for this? That foot pedal. No more trying to hold my wood with one hand while the blade is going, and reach up or down to turn the machine off ! When I need a break, the phone rings, or a neighbor drops by, I take my foot off the pedal and it comes to a "dead stop" just as advertised. Great one on Amazon for about $22. Magnifying light is terrific to have too.
Most scroll saw web sites tell newbees not to use the spiral blades and I don't know why. I am not a newbee, but I'm not a professional either. I make basic craft things, and do not make the intricate fret work. The "New Spiral Blades" by Flying Dutchman, (# 5's) go through my pine wood like butter and there is no need to keep turning the wood either. I am not real good at making small turns with the regular blades. With a blade that's twisted and can go in any direction, I have no trouble getting into tight areas. These blades have flat ends too, which make them real easy to install. (This saw takes only flat ended blades, no pin blades)
Amazon...please look into carrying these Flying Dutchman "New Spiral Blades" soon so we don't have to search for them!
Lastly, this machine runs so quietly, compared to the others, you hardly know it's on.
As you can tell, I am so very jazzed that I finally got this Dewalt.
