Best Scroll Saw Review Listing


1. DeWalt DW788 1.3 Amp 20-Inch Variable-Speed Scroll Saw

The dependable DeWalt 20-Inch Variable-Speed Scroll Saw is designed to help you create accurate, detailed workpieces with ease. Its user-friendly configuration with easy-to-access controls, reduced-vibration design, and variable-speed performance allow for incredible precision. For added convenience and durability, an integrated cast-iron table provides material support, and a flexible dust blower helps keep your work area pristine.

Customer Review - The DeWalt saw is designed and manufactured by Sommervile Design in Canada. They make the Excalibur Scroll saw. The DeWalt Saw is very much like the Excalibur in that it has very low vibration and having a very smooth operation. I had a DeWalt but had to move up to the Excalibur because of the work i produced, unless you use a scroll saw for 6 - 12 hours per day, buy this saw. The only problem I had was the motor could not take the beating i gave it, i cut 3/4 to 1 1/2 thickness wood all the time, although the saw handled that thickness with ease, it could not keep my pace. If you're a hobbyist cutting moderately its a great saw. It has a quick release for the blade and you can change blades in seconds, the blade tension is right there in front, the top arm lifts for getting work on and off the table. Fairly quiet operation. -Woodwurx



2.  Excalibur Scroll Saw 21 inch

The Excalibur 21" variable speed scroll saws unique design provides a stable platform when cutting straight or on an angle. Unlike other scroll saws where the table is tilted for angled cuts, the entire head of the Excalibur tilts 45 degrees; to the left or the right. This allows the user to better control the work piece on a flat table surface, for a more safe and accurate cut. Solidly built upper and lower parallel arms keep the blade straight with minimal blade deflection allowing for precise cuts, making this the most sought after scroll saw on the market. 120V 1.3 amp constant torque permanent magnet motor. Large 13-1/2" x 23-1/2" table surface. No tools required - finger operated blade clamps. Easy access speed and tension controls. Organized blade storage on base. On-board dust blower.

Customer Review - The Excalibur line of saws is considered a mid to upper line of scroll saws for the scroll saw hobbyist. Now many of us serious woodworkers don’t like that term “hobbyist” because it seems that in some ways it may demean our passion and ability to make fine woodworking projects, but the way I look at it, I don’t agree. I think that it encompasses anyone who is passionate about scroll sawing and who spends as much time as they can at the saw, but doesn’t necessarily support themselves fully by their work on the scroll saw alone. -Sheila Landry


3. Skil 3335-02 120-Volt Scroll Saw


Includes 16-in Scroll Saw with Light - 3335-02, 2 Blades, 2 Blade Wrenches. It boasts a 1.2 Amp motor with an LED light that ensures the work piece is clearly lit. The 16" throat allows for cutting thicker pieces. The on-tool blade storage keeps blades handy when needed.

Customer Review - My wife and I purchased this ourselves for a Christmas present to each other. I used it right away for scroll work on a toy box. Once I bolted it to a piece of 3/4 wood so that I could clamp it to my bench, it worked as advertised. It' s a great entry level scroll saw and my wife can't wait to start trying out some of the new patterns I put in her Christmas stocking. I would give it a higher rating if I was able to clamp it down without bolting it to a board. -Ed Ldr

Customer Review - The Shop Fox scroll saw came double-boxed, so there was no damage in shipping. I bought this saw because of the price and because it has a cast iron table, instead of aluminum. Also, it uses blades with or without pins. I have had absolutely no problems with it. I was surprised that it even came with a light bulb. It arrived in good condition, works well and fits my needs. Did have a little trouble finding additional blades for my needs, but no reflection on the saw. -M. Lewis


5. Rockwell RK7315 16-Inch Scroll Saw

Shop series. Variable speed and a 4 5'' stroke ensure clean accurate cuts while the 0 to 45 beveling table lets you make more specialized cuts. Also equipped with a dust port and dust blower to keep the work area clean and safe. Power is provided by a 1.2 amp motor with no load speed of 500 to 1700 SPM. Throat depth is 16'' and the cutting depth is 2 1 2''. It comes with a blade guard, blade holder, Allen key, and 2 blades (1 x 15TPI and 1 x 18TPI).

Customer Review - As usual Amazon shipping could not have been better. Product was as described only better the product description failed to note that cutting depths longer than 16" can be made by turning the blade perpendicular to the arm. Once I disconnected all of the "OSHA" safety trash* and the non-functioning dust blower and threw it all away it was almost ready to go. I built a wooden base for it and padded it with some rubber shelf liner material and locked it down in my "Workmate 225". Some vibration is apparent at 1500 spm but that is to be expected. Speeds somewhere in the mid range works good for 1/4" to 3/4" pine and 1/2 birch plywood. The speed control helps for tight inside cuts. -Harold Dubbs
