Have had 6 scroll saws since the 1980's, then I bought a Refurbished DW788 in 2000, used it almost everyday for plaques, sign work, and enjoyment. Then it just snapped and smoked in December. Researched online and found the best deal for the best scroll saw I've ever had (DW788). New one is smoother and quieter but the armature rattles a bit more than the old one. But I still love it.
