    Reply to Blade too close to guard - tension problems
    Trackman
    If you don’t take the tension off before you loosen the clamps you will need to after you replace the blade. Than retension. If not you won’t have any tension on the blade. You should be able to pluck the blade with your finger nail and get a ping. The thing you call a guard is a hold down arm....

    It's a Delta 40-560C....What do you mean by the blade should bottom out in the clamps? Did you mean that the tips of the blades should be touching the tips of the ends of the clamps? Sorry, I hope that made sense?
    Yes, there is slight left to right movement in the arm (I circled it on the photo...

    What model Delta is this?
    I see this delta has a quick tension release. The way it should work is to release the quick tension lowering the front of the top arm. The blade should should bottom out in the clamps. Then flip the quick tension clamp back. Adjust the tension knob for the proper tension...

    On most machines if you dont loosen the tension all the way on the blade change you will throw the tension adjustment way off as you will the adjust afterwards to tighten the blade and soon bottom out your setting....

    Sorry but I have no experience with Delta saws. I can tell you that 15-20 minutes of use is normal for blade life. I doubt the blade is stretching at least to the point of it being detectable. You are pushing more then you realize as the blade dulls. You might also consider switching to a #5 or #7...

    Blade too close to guard - tension problems
    Maisie
    Hi, I've been scroll sawing since 2015, so not really a newbie, but am not sure where to post this - Over the last month I've been having problems with new blades stretching to almost the edge of the guard when I cut, whereas the blade used to always be in the middle of the guard and cut really fast,...

    Aluminum oxidizes grey, Cast iron and steel rusts. The table on my Hawk is aluminum, it scratches but has never oxidized. My old Delta is cast iron even sealed it still has a light layer of rust from not being used....

    The table on my DW788 although cast aluminum I believe, is stained, probably forever, but is slick as glass. I avoid further rust by applying a goodly amount of Johnson's Paste Wax and leaving it to dry. When I come back to make more sawdust I apply a little more and polish her up. Stained but slip...
