I signed up today mainly to ask you all about the Jet 22. I got one a few months ago and there has been problem after problem. First, the little rubber cap over the switch fell off the first day. No biggie.

Then, it just stopped for a while. I fiddled and fiddled for a month. Then, one day I fiddled again and it turned on. Weird.

The bracket that holds the blade broke. I don’t know how it could have possibly broke on it’s own, I had it for less than three months. I had used it maybe 20 times. Had to pay 22 bucks for replacement and shipping.

The review in the latest Scrollsaw magazine was right on… switching from thick blades to thin is a pain. You need an Allen wrench to adjust. Plus, I had no idea how much I was a top-loader. If you have a big project, trying to find the hole is a pain.

I have to buy another scroll saw for work. I’ve already filled out my PO for a DeWalt 788. Half the price, just as good.
