THIS IS A GREAT TOOL! AMAZING WHAT CAN BE DONE WITH THIS EASY TO USE, QUALITY TOOL. BUYING IT ON SALE WAS A PLUS.
Major upgrade from Wen
This machine is a game changer when it comes to detailed scroll work. I used to use a Wen scroll saw which served me very well but comes no where close to having the finesse and smoother operation of the Delta. I read one review that said you could put a coin on the work table and it would not vibrate off? This is true! Very smooth operation. Blade change can be. Little difficult be with time it becomes easier. Overall I am so pleased with this unit. Only regret is I didn’t do it sooner!
Easy assembly. Operates smoothly. As a first time user, takes a little practice in getting use to the speed and the tension. So far, great value for the price! Would recommend to anyone!
I have enjoyed using the Delta Scroll Saw. It is quiet and has very little vibration at the speeds I run it at. (5-6 on the dial) Blade changing is easy and the assembly was very simple. The table is square to the blade and I did not have to adjust it. I mounted the saw on some rubber pad for extra cushion, which made the saw even more quiet and smooth running. I really like the blade tensioner, as it makes setting the tension quick and easy after changing blades or when disconnecting and reinserting the blade for fret work. So far it has been a great saw and am working on projects now with more enjoyment than I did with my old scroll saw.
Beginning to cut names out of 3/4 inch poplar wood. Learning to select the best blade for the job, over all I really like this scroll saw. It is heavy so it doesn’t vibrate at all. Really like the 20 inch throat as that allows longer name plates.
Works great. The weight is nice haven’t had to clamp it to the bench yet. The only CON I have found is the bolts holding the motor had come loose,took it apart and added some blue thread lock. Have not had a problem since then.
Great product and easy use
Have only used it about 3 times, too cold in my garage still, but am impressed with the ease that it took to use it for the very first time in my life. Granted I researched scroll saws for a good 3 weeks before I decided to choose this one so I felt like I could jump right in. I forgot I needed to learn more about tension, speed, and types of blades to use!If you buy this, and I recommend it over others for price/value, do read about how the instructions do not include how to put the whole thing together. Assembling the table to the bracket was not as straightforward as I thought and took some noodling to do. Once together I am looking forward to lots of great gifts for grandkids and maybe to sell as well!
It’s a great scroll saw! I would definitely recommend it.
The product arrived on time. I have used it and it performs well and is quiet when running. Before purchase while doing my research, I learned that the product does not come with blades but I was pleasantly surprised to find two in my packaging.
The product seems fine… it is too cold presently to really test. However, HD service was pretty bad. First they would not offer a raincheck for this product although unavailable the entire length of sale. This became moot as manufacturer delivered earlier than expected. HD used FedEx which is TERRIBLE; several days late, impossible to track, and they left package where not easily seen (except by thieves). Is a doorbell ring too much to ask? Although I purchased product online, HD still sends emails inviting me to “take a second look” at this product I was following… REALLY??
Smooth operation, controls nicely positioned and accessible.
This scroll saw is great! Once you figure out how to put in the blades and get the tension set, it’s a great.
Shipping from Home Depot was very quick and at $299 I was satisfied with the price. There are only a couple things to assemble on the scroll saw, but the Delta directions are terrible which makes a simple assembly much more difficult. Regarding assembly, I would recommend finding an online video to watch and circumvent the poor instructions which leave out several steps and leave you wondering what to do with your extra pieces (which turn out not to be extra). It is an overall decent product. For a few extra dollars they could have included a work light, but I would recommend it if you can get it for the $299 sale price.
This saw has done a pretty good job for everything I have thrown at it, it struggled a little bit putting 3 inch bass wood with olson and pegas blades. I gave it 4 stars because I feel like it could be a more aggressive cut feel like it is a little slow.
This scroll saw met all of my expectations! It is well worth the price. I would recommend this to anyone that is interested in getting into this hobby!
The Scroll saw was exactly what I expected and as advertised and reviewed by several UTube raters.
Stable operation. Easy blade changes, reasonably quiet. Table is sufficiently large that I don’t think I’ll ever hit the back. I was replacing a lower cost, much older saw. This is way more impressive, would definitely recommend itWould be nice if it had an integrated LED light. Though I got good at it, getting the blade in the lower blade holder requires some practice – some re-machining of the lower blade holder to guide the blade would be nice. Neither of these are deal breakers for me.The hold-down is pretty pointless. Perhaps in some world if you are working with big pieces of wood and the pattern is pretty coarse it could be useful. Otherwise it will get in the way or be useless. I never installed it nor did I miss it, was easy enough to hold the wood down with my fingers.
Very nice saw. Does what I want it to do. Easy to assemble. Very happy with this saw.
