Best buy for the buck and best warranty Feb 11, 2008
By R. Young
I did alot of research and comparison to all the brands and hands down this was the best buy for the buck. It performs great,easy to change blades,tension lever up front and easy to adjust. Noise level is acceptable, the Dewalt maybe up one here, but your paying over twice as much. If doing over would buy the same dremel again.
I mounted solid to a bench and laid a thin rubber mat under it and bolted down secure and has no excessice viberation.If I could change anything on the machine it would be to have a 20" or 22" throat. Don't let peoples comments of hard to change blades, noisey, viberates, loud, cheap...all Bogus. Its a Great Machine! Love it. Robert

Dremel Scrollsaw 1830 Jun 09, 2008
By S. L. Block
Wow! Is this a good saw? It fast and accurate. It's easy to use and it rotates 90 degrees for long cuts. The saw blade holder/changer is simple and effective. It's quick as I always have to do interior cuts. It says it's 18" deep but it is really 20... Great saw!

Good Value Scroll Saw Jan 02, 2008
By Dan Mccarthy
I bought this saw with the 20% discount. There is some vibration but with a rubber sanding mat underneath it, it performs very well. What do you want for under $200. If your a professional who will use this saw everyday, buy the dewalt scroll saw and go away. For the home DIY, this saw is decent quality at a decent price.

Great tool Apr 06, 2009
By Mike T Rose
This is a great tool. Bought it for $129 at H.D.
Contrary to negative reviews, it is smooth, reliable and solid. I have had it for a year, with heavy use, no problems.

Great Scroll saw Feb 06, 2010
By Ben Worrell
Dremel lives up to it's legacy for nice precise products.
This saw works great especially with sharp blades. Add a light for visibility and a blower or vac to keep things clean and it is first rate!
Several years ago I worked with a friend using his "brand new budget priced" saw, I recall it was very hard to make clean cuts even with new blades. Could of been the wood or that the blades he had were not meant for that wood.
I paid a little more for this saw but it is now 10 years later, Couldn't be more pleased with it.
Purchased it to cut a pine wood derby car. When the saw arrived I made several test cuts on rough 2x4 material, until I knew I could cut nice clean lines. Cutting the Pinewood Derby car blank was like cutting butter!
I could of paid more but don't think I would of gotten a better saw for my purposes.
Before ordering it I read a bad review for this same saw on another site. That reviewer needed a band saw for their project not a scroll saw!
When I ordered this saw off of Amazon, I used the free shipping option, and expected it to take the advertised week+ from Georgia (I think was the location). Boy was I shocked to check the Tracking number and find that it was already on truck for delivery to my house 2 days after ordering!
Personally my only Complaint is not having enough time in the shop to use it!
