Good evening all. Just bought a Dewalt type1 scroll saw off of craigslist. Seller sold it as some of the wires were removed during a maintenance check of the bearings to get ready for sale. Not sure why wires were removed but he doesn’t know where they go. So I picked it up for $100.00. Checked the motor, fuse and switch etc. and all good.

Looking for someone who can, possibly, help me determine which wires go where before I haul it off the Cewalt’s service center. Wait time is about 6-8 weeks.

If need be, that’s the way I’ll go, but appreciate any input y’all might have.

I wonder if that’s the same guy who posted on another forum.

Check the DW scroll saw rebuild video series put out by the Gwinnett WWing club. There’s a guy named Bob Brokaw who is very knowledge I’ve contacted him through their Facebook page.

Anyway, I was trying to help the guy out and sent him a screen shot of the circuit board. I think its in the second video.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!

Thanks all.
Sunny Bob, I did find the link you sent me from instructables very helpful, I got a very clear picture of a wiring diagram.

Robert, I am the same guy. Got your screen shot, thank you. It was hard for me to follow the wires. There are two black wires that I can’t follow. I don’t know which one is which.

I do appreciate all the help,received from all three forums where I posted my request.
Thanks again to all.

Have your say...
