Woodworking Experience:
Very nice Scroll Saw
I am new to scroll sawing. My wife heard me mention the great deal (saw, stand and light) once and surprised me at Christmas with this awesome gift. I have set all three pieces up and made a few test cuts.

Stand - I set this up and it took a little finagling to get it right. The instructions to put it together are miminal at best. Essentially a one sheeter with a picture on it. You will need a 1/2" socket or wrench to tighten the nuts. At first the stand seemed a little wobbly, but once the saw was mounted (3 bolts) it seemed to work well. I attached the Rockler casters (box of 4 but you only need three). This added a bit of height to the saw table which made it comfortable to make the test cut standing up (I'm 6'1"). I would recommend a stool if you will be cut for any length of time.

Saw - the saw came in two pieces: the saw and the table. The table is connected with two bolts and an allen wrench came with the saw. It took only a few minutes to attach the saw to the stand and then attach the table. The saw some with two blades. They are pretty fine and the size of blades is not specified. Installing the blade is super simple and it was my first time ever doing it. I made a curved test cut on a piece of 3/4" red oak scrap I had and it cut very well and smoothly. There was no vibration at all on the table and the saw made very little noise. The dust blower is ok. I thought it would be a little more powerful, but it does the job. Very flexible and rigid hose so you can set it how you want and not worry about it moving on you.

Light - the light attaches to the left side of the saw by using two star-headed bolts already attached to the side of the saw. A star headed allen wrench is included. The light is fairly bright but not glaring. You can't really tell in the product picture, but the light's cord is a 3 prong male socket.

Woodworking Experience:
Been wanting a scroll saw for quite a while. I'm so happy I waited to pick up what I wanted and that was the Dewalt 788. Powerful and cuts true. Made a few patterns to test out how it worked and it was great. Very pleased with the purchase. Highly recommended.

Great machine!
I have waited a long time for this machine and it is fabulous, smooth running and so much quieter.
The foot to hold the wood moves but I solved that with a little piece of rubber.

DeWalt 20" vs scroll saw
This is my first scroll saw. This saw is an amazingly well built machine. I've added a magnifying glass with light and love the detail I'm able to achieve. I highly recommend this purchase if you are considering buying a scroll saw. You won't regret spending this amount of money once you own it.

Woodworking Experience:
The Dewalt 20" Scroll Saw has worked well. I have only had it a short time, but it is easy to change blades, runs quiet and doesn't vibrate. The optional light works well and the stand is stable and sturdy.

Woodworking Experience:
The Dewalt 20" scroll saw is a dream to use. It's quiet, powerful and the controls are in exactly the right place.

The stand is sufficiently sturdy and reasonably easy to assemble, though the instructions could be a bit better.

I definitely recommend this machine for intermediate and advanced hobbiests.

I have an older saw from a different manufacturer. I used the Dewalt in a friends shop, and was impressed, by how much better it cut, and was easier to use. Trading up !

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.

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
Pretty hard to resist the deal if you're in the market for a scroll saw, This Dewalt scroll saw receives particularly good reviews and I find it time to try it for myself.

THOMAS CALISSI C on Dec 30, 2018
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. The blower was included.
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.
