  • 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.

        Pegas Large Scrollsaw Table
        by cwmagee
        A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

        Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
        That is...

        The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

        Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...
