Cut the tightest curves without squinting with this package deal from DeWalt—a value of more than $650! With its vibration-free double parallel-link arm design, the DW788 Scroll Saw promises precisely curved cuts. In addition, it offers variable speed from 400-1,750 SPM, giving you the control you need for various materials, stock thicknesses and cut characteristics. Add to this a sturdy metal tripod stand, which further reduces vibration and lets you comfortably straddle the saw, plus a convenient saw-mounted work light, and you have the perfect package for comfort and quality.

DeWalt DW788 20'' VS Scroll Saw:

  • Double parallel-link arm design dramatically reduces vibration and noise, for extremely accurate cuts
  • Exclusive tool-free blade holders allow blade changes in seconds
  • On-off switch, electronic variable speed, flexible dust blower and blade-tensioning lever are all located on the front upper arm for added convenience
  • Arm design moves the tool's pivot points from the back of the saw to the front, shortening the arm movement for smoother, quieter operation
  • Arm lifts so blade can be easily threaded through the material for inside cuts
  • Unique arm design keeps the blade perpendicular to the work, dramatically reducing over- or under- cutting
  • Oversized, cast-iron table provides excellent material support and bevels 45° left and right

    DeWalt W7881 Work Light:

    • Mounts easily to the back of the DW788 16" scroll saw
    • Promotes better visibility, accuracy, and safety
    • Flexible neck for easy positioning
    • Three-wire grounded plug
    • 25 watt bulb included

    Stand For DeWalt 788 Scroll Saw:

    • Durable all-metal construction

Saw is real nice. Light arrived fine but the bulb was smashed. Customer Service got me a replacement bulb which I received last week. It took about 10 to 14 days to receive but I now have the bulb.

Great value for the money
Highly recommend. It’s a classic case of getting what you pay for: low vibration, plenty of clearance, blades easy to change.

Supremely outstanding!
Smoothist scoller I've ever owned or used. Best blade holding system ever; so simple, but yet so efficient.
Wasn't very happy when stand box had no hardware package, but Rockler customer service personnel took care of that problem very quickly. Top notch saw, top notch supply company. Thanks!

Excellent, precise, low vibration, easy blade changing.
Great tool. Easy blade changing and very easy to use. It is my first scroll saw. I like the light and blower to keep the work piece clean of saw dust. I like making crafts with my daughters and completed two projects so far. I added a foot pedal which in my opinion is a must.

Solid build, runs smooth, cuts well. The light is not enough for old eyes! I am sure this scroll saw will be all I ever need. Rockler was great to work with, the entire transaction was smooth.

Great machine
I have used a Makita 16 inch scroll saw for years until it broke around Christmas. Parts are not available so I started shopping. It was the best thing that could have happened. Using the Dewalt 20 inch is like a new world of scrollsawing for me.

Very good reviews from numerous sites. Clearly the best hobby-level scroll saw.

From all the reviews I've read this is a great saw and Rockler had a great deal for saw, stand, light and free shipping. Couldn't pass it up.

wanted a scroll saw for a very long time... this has very good reviews, and with the stand and light it looked a really good deal!
Davide C on Jun 22, 2015
After a lot of searching, this scroll saw was the best value. For my first saw of this type it gave me a great combination of throat size, design, durability, and price.
Jim E on Jun 21, 2015
Excellent Price.
Gary A. C on Jun 15, 2015
This is supposed to be one of the better Scroll Saws and I could find no one locally that would match your price. They would match the price of the saw but would not offer free stand or light. I thought it is a good deal.
Joseph Michael G on Jun 13, 2015
I read the reviews on this site and others.
David V on Dec 7, 2019
the product and the good reviews
harry f on Nov 29, 2019
Does the DeWalt hold an Olson small kerf, spiral blade securely (e.g. .035in, 41TPI) ? These tend to loosen on my other scroll saw.
GARY D on Sep 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have used all types of blades in my DeWalt and have had no issues.
Are there casters available for the stand?
Dana S on Jun 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We sell a set of casters that would fit this stand. 47034 is our part number
What is the height of the saw table when mounted on the stand? Is it useful to have a stool to sit on?
GARY D on Aug 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The top of the saw table is 40-3/16" above the floor. I use a 30" padded stool and have found it to be the most comfortable position in which to use the saw. I'm 6'2" so I expect the height of the stool you'd want may be different than is comfortable for me. I love the saw. This is my second scroll saw. I particularly like the ease of putting on a new/different blade. I have also added a room light above the saw so the brightness of the light that comes with the saw is not so much of a contrast - just a little easier when you look away to not have a big change for your eyes.
The picture shows an attached flexible blower but nowhere is it mentioned in the include list. Does it come with a blower?
MREdtou on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes its there on both of the ones I own
Does this saw take 5 inch pin blades? or something different?
JayZee on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No pins with this one, but still takes 5-inch blades just ones without pins.
Is the Dewalt 788 Scroll saw made in America?
Stan J on Oct 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Not sure.

The instruction manual and the name plate on the saw both reference Dewalt in Baltimore, MD.

No other location on anything.

But, not sure if that’s where it’s made. Could just be corporate headquarters.

Sorry, not much help.
Does this model saw accept the hook-up of a "deadman foot switch?"
Rod P on Nov 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My saw is plugged into a foot pedal which is then plugged into a power supply. I then use the foot pedal to start and stop the saw.
