  • Delta 40-690

    Karen12, I purchased a Delta 40-690 from a lumber company in Amish country, Charm, Ohio. Keim Lumber. It was a factory reconditioned saw, which appeared like it was never used. I have been sawing for over 25 years, so I do have a little experience. I have owned an older EXIII in 19", 2 RBI Hawks, 2 14" Scrollmates, a Dremel, and now the Delta. I total 5 saws at this time.
    The Delta runs very smoothly with virtually no vibration at all. It did have excessive blade movement back and forth, 3/16" or close. I located a tuning page online for the Dewalt 788, which shows how to correct this. I tried it and now I love the saw. It works great. I still need to adjust the blade a little more, but I use it all the time. I can e-mail the link if anybody needs it. I have no other problems whatsoever with this saw. I paid $329.00 plus tax for the saw.
    My neighbor cannot believe the difference in this saw after the tuning. He loves cutting on it also.
    Thanks, Paul

      He will end up with one someday. Right now he has two to cut on, but he will upgrade in the future.

        Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

        Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

        My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

        I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
