Unboxing the WEN 3920 16-Inch Two-Direction Variable Speed Scroll Saw

WEN 3920 16-Inch Two-Direction Variable Speed Scroll Saw Full ViewI ordered a scroll saw to build molds for aluminum and plastic casting. I’d been keeping an eye on the WEN 3920 and it’s competitors, like the Harbor Freight #62519, and the Grizzly #G0536. I finally pulled the trigger on the WEN #3920 when it hit $75 on Amazon. The saw arrived yesterday, so I decided to throw together an unboxing video for your enjoyment.

Harbor Freight 18v .25in Impact Driver

Harbor Freight Impact Driver, A fathers day gift

For fathers day 2017 my sons gave me some money to spend on some tools I’ve been wanting. Thanks to you both.

recipt with discountFirst on the long list of tools I’ve been wanting was a 1/4 inch impact driver with a battery that actually works. So with that in mind I swung by my local Harbor Freight and bought one of their 18v 1/4 impact driver packages. It’s the driver, charger, and single battery in a fitted plastic box. Normal price is $99.00, but it was on close out at $39.97. I’ve seen it priced at ~$99.00 in store before, but I think that it’s usually right at ~$40.00. I also purchased a magnetic bit holder for $2.00.

I gave the cashier a 20% coupon figuring .40 off of the $2.00 bit holder was something. The other cashier was desperately tying to get me to buy the warranty so I didn’t really look at my change. I noticed later that they had applied the 20% coupon to the impact driver, saving me about $8.00. I swore you couldn’t use a coupon on close out items, so either I was wrong or I just got hold of a nice cashier. I’m happy either way.
