  • Howdy from Okeechobee Florida

    Just joined last week. Have a older Ryobi scroll saw. Just ordered a new Delta 40-694. Retired sorta. Do lots of Bass fishing.

    Welcome to the board! I'm still cutting on a 15 year old Ryobi scroll saw myself. Looking to upgrade this summer, let me know how you like the new Delta.

          Greetings from Southwest Florida (Naples)!

          Let's see: bass fishing in Lake Okeechobee or scroll sawing. Sorry, I'm going with bass fishing on this one!

          I hope you get some big ones!

                  Welcome to the group. Like the others have asked, what are your favorite things to cut. I would also like to get your opinion on the Delta 40-694.
                  We always have folks asking about what saws to purchase. As you will discover we all have our preferences.

                  Regarding Bass fishing, I don't fish anymore but boy do I like those Bass boats.

                      Belated Indiana greetings. Been a while since I was bass fishing, but always loved it. Some of the biggest fish I ever boated were near busy highways in the Orlando area.

                        Hey folks, sorry for the delay. I love my Delta 40-694. Took it apart to be sure all the needle bearings had plenty of grease. They surly did! And made sure everything was good and tight in the scroll saw, and it was. So in my book yhe Delta is the equal to the Dewalt 788, but cheaper to buy. I am making mantel clocks with the cheap quartz movement. They seem to be real popular in these parts. But am having trouble finding good flat oak 1/4 X 3" and 6" wide lumber around here. Might have to run over to Fort Pierce area to find it. Or might have to order it online. Anyone have good places to get 1/4" oak online?

                            Hello Hogcat, from Central South Dakota. I don't contribute very much because I'm still learning but I think it's a great place to be. Someone has always answered any questions I have. I have definately learned a lot from this forum and they are extremely friendly and informative. I used to do some bass fishing in the ponds around here but haven't had much time to fish in the last few years. (I can see the Missouri river from my front window). I just upgraded from a Delta saw to a new Pegas scrollsaw and I love the new saw. It seems like it only takes half the time to cut something out now. If you want to upgrade down the road, talk with Denny from this forum (Sandy Oaks) he's not only a distributor but he's been very helpful with me when ever I have a question in regards to my new saw.

                              Hogcat, try Ocooch hardwoods. They have been around a long time and are very reliable.

                              And welcome, from NY!
