Rumor has it that Dremel has ceased production of the Dremel scroll saw to concentrate on rotary tools. My Dremel saw is only a little over a year old; will I be able to buy parts if and when I need them? Say it aint so.

I would say that you would still be able to get parts. I don't know if Dremel is discontinuing all of its skrol saws you would have to call customer service.

****o anyone and everyone.  I called Dremel today to ask about getting a new fuse holder fo my Dremel 1680 scroll saw and was told by customer service that they had indeed discontinued  their production of scroll saws.  I was told to call CPO dremel, as they carried "parts".  I did call that company and their customer service representitive acted as though they didn't carry any parts.  Isn't this a fine kettle of fish?  I can just put any good fuse holder in it, but I suppose that means that when the brushes wear out that I have a "boat anchor" sitting on my work bench. I guess I'll just have to back-up and punt (Bummer). Muskrat.

I don't know about repair parts, but I just recently bought a 57-2 that hasn't been in production for years and can still get the blades for it.

My Model 1680 has been discontinued. I'm watching Craigslist & Freecycle and will buy a used one for parts.

There are two 1671's for sale for $75-100 with stand (type 1 and 2, whatever that means - I see there is a type 3 too).  I think the 1671 is very (20+ years?) old so parts will be an issue.  I won't use it much, but who knows if the prior owner did.  So I'm leaning towards not buying them even if I can get them for $50 with the stand...or are these scroll saws "high end" and therefore a good deal? 

The Craftsmen low end scroll saw is $105 on sale.  There are surely a million of them out there, so hopefully parts won't be an issue for a long time?  If not, then it sems to me any new scroll saw will have parts issues too.
