    Hello ..

    I am a woodworker who has wanted a scroll saw for a while. I picked up a Delta 40-440 at an auction today that needs to be restored and will be starting next week.

    I have restored a bandsaw in the past, hoping a scroll saw will be about as difficult, but no real idea.

    Hoping there are folks here who have done something like this who can lend some advice.

      Welcome to the forum as stated before the folks here are very helpful. I haven't worked on a Delta but have on a dremel and the basics are pretty easy it the parts that can be a bugger to get. Hopefully yours will be easy to locate. The best of luck and may you not need to replace any parts, maybe it jsut needs a good cleaning...

          I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

          Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

          The VacuFlo actually uses...

          For something like a table saw the volume of air moved is much more important than whether a good vacuum is produced....
