  • hello from chicago

    New to scrolling and have already learned a lot just from reading the posts.
    I've been woodworking for a few years but have never scrolled.It appealed to me as a fun activity which does'nt require all the set up involved with other forms of the wood sports?
    I recieved a Delta SS350 from the wife as a gift after a few well placed hints.This saw was chosen as an affordable entry level tool . From what I have read so far in the forums, it seems to have been a right choice. Hope to learn from the many experts on this board.
    Thanks Hank

      Welcome Hank!
      You've got a good saw - now get some good blades (one recommendation is Flying Dutchman blades from Mike M -he posts here as 3M), and get a copy of Scroll Saw Workbook by John Nelson. He guides you through scrolling, introducing new terms and techniques gradually with ever more challenging projects while he gives you tips for success - really a great book. You can get it through this web-site (Fox Chapel), from your favorite bookseller, or even borrow it from a good library (but this is one you will want to own).
      Let us know what you're doing and how we can help, and come back often for a chat.

          Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
          That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

          If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

          The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

          You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
