And who manufacturers this Saw? gotta love the internet . . . . Rexon it is, and designated to Lowes. In this shipment was 350 saws. This saw is 18", so that gives this entry saw two more inches than the 370ss. Motor 1.6 AMP, 500 to 1500 strokes per minute, table size 12 5/8 by 20"

Wow Hotshot.. you are da man!

This looks like a positive upgrade to the 370ss. It will be interesting to see the test results!

If Rexon/ Porter Cable made even a few positive upgrades over the older model, and can keep the QC in the positive, then they can take over the Sub $250 entry level market.

It would be nice to see an arm lift setup, but I believe that if they put out a good entry level unit that would help the scroll saw community as a whole get some new younger blood.

Wow! I like the knob on the clamps. I have a dilly of a time some times to change the blades on my Shop Fox as I have to use an allen wrench or hex wrench to loosen a little screw and then put in the blade. At least I have no problem with the clamps cracking if I should over tighten. Wish I could find a saw like that one. It looks like a better quality saw than the Shop Fox. We don't have a Lowes in our area. I would have to go to Silver Dale to look at their saws. One of these days maybe I will or get Big Yellow. Thanks for sharing these pictures. Have a great evening Fay

I was at Lowes yesterday, and they didn't have the new saw yet. But the old style PC is on sale for $129. That's $60 off. If you show your Veteran card, 10% more off.

It might just be me, but it almost looks by that that pic that the rear of the saw is elevated a little by the stand. The stand definitely has some 788 influence.

$129 for the old model seems to be a steal. I doubt Rexon will quit making that model since it is sold under so many different names. I would think parts should be plenteous for a while.

I purchased one last night.

  • Took about 10 minutes to assemble
  • All the controls are right in front
  • It's quiet. If you didn't see it you'd swear you were hearing a sewing machine

I haven't used except to cut some 1/4" red oak just to test it out. The only vibration I had was from the little tray that holds the spare blades under the table. The stand does not angle down, it just appears that way because the stand is closer together in the back than it is in the front.

Rick,
When you have a bit more time please give us an update on the saw (after using it for a while)
Front to back blade motion would be of interest to me.
It would be great if this were to become a reasonable entry level saw.

Where did you buy it, and does it come with the stand or is it extra?
