Today I picked up a new blade and got the better ones . I also picked up a Dewalt 788 Scrollsaw. I’ve got it put together already but I’d like to bring it in from the garage and use it in the basement. I’m just hoping to find the right type of dust collector for it. There are some excellent DIY’ options for rigging an attachment underneath the table.

Anyway while I was at busy bee I checked out there new bandsaws and their guides are mounted just like mine are.
I’m sure with this extra fine blade and a bit of tweaking I should be good. I’ll show pics tomorrow.
