well the guy still had the saw and he wanted 450 for it and I got it for 175
I brought it home and cut out my name out of some junk 1/2 ply and 1/4 ply
with the blade that was in it when I bought it. I hope it will be a good first saw and I figured I could get 175 back out of it if I put in on ebay.

I am a total newbie and never used one before so I think it is working ok. I need new bellows for it which seems like a cvjoint boot so I am going to try to match one to fit at napa and I know it needs this rubber bumper that it is missing.

thanks for your help maybe I will end up with the dewalt but since the guy came way to what I think is fair it was worth a gamble I guess

it is a multimaster-2 which seems to be the same as the 14-e nowdays

HI tryingtokeepmyfingers

Sounds like you got a great deal

Blades are the key, pickup some blades from Mike's " Assortment Pack "

You will be glad you did

Assortment Pack

bellows,,,I use a fish tank pump,,two outlets that blows all the saw dust off to one side...

Oops I did not look close enough when I bought the saw. I need the bearing coupler piece that is about 40 bucks it seems. The one on it is a homemade one the previous owner made. I should have looked closer. And it is missing a rubber bumper that is about 4 bucks

so I guess 175 + 45 = 220 total will still be a ok deal for the saw

BLADES

are theese the same blades that mikes sells just from someone else in a different assortment ?

thanks for any help

I think the "Flying Dutchman" is the brand of blade used by most experienced scrollers. Another good brand is Carter blades.
I just bought a new Hitachi CW40 scroll saw with stand for $160 and ordered the Intro Pack of Flying Dutchman's from Mike's. When I have had a chance to try them out I will let you know about them.
