I went to Woodcraft and they had an Excalibur EX-16 set up to use. I cut a little 1/8 " plywood and it was nice. The thing I didn't like was it had quite a bit of vibration when turned up over half way. In it's defense it was on a wobbly wooden stand. I am going to go back and see if I can set it on the solid floor and see how the vibration is then.

I spoke with tech from general about that and if its not on a sturdy stand it will vibrate. Because mine was vibrating it doesn't vibrate on its stand. Hope this helps

Without a doubt, it is important to use the factory stands on Excalibur and DeWalt saws. These stands are designed to help dampen vibration. If you can't use the factory stand, the saw must be bolted down to your workbench.

I would think any scroll saw will vibrate if it is not on a sturdy stand or work bench. Mine is on my bench and it is nice and sturdy and does not vibrate. The saw I sent back was a real kick in the bleep. I say yes set it on some thing nice and sturdy and then give it a try. Hope it'll help. Have a great day Fay

Both my Dewalts and EX-30 are all on factory stands and have no vibration.
