    Picked up the new saw yesterday and this one has a "T" handle key for the blades. It is the same model basically as the old one but feels different. Swamped with work right now but as soon as I have free time next week I'm on that saw.

    Don't know about USA or any other country but in Canada the Delta P-20 comes completely assembled and the stand pieces which require assembly are all contained in the one shipping box. It is not available as saw alone.
    I had a strong wood stand when I bought my Delta P-20 and I asked if I could get a better price without the stand and they said they won't split them up.
    Turned out I was glad once I saw how heavy guage the steel was in the new stand along with a bottom shelf and the back leg is adjustable for tilting it forward. So my heavy 16 speed drill press went on my old scroll saw stand.

    However, I believe the 16" Delta saws are available as saw alone.

    Looks a lot like the Delta SS350 I started on a couple years ago...but I could be wrong.

    hi peter
    it looks a great saw, a bit too much for my budget though. While i was at work today, my wife ordered me this saw :http://www.diytools.co.uk/Product.aspx/!TB_DEL40570

    decided to take advice given from this forum and bought a slightly more expensive one, hope i will be able to tell the difference.

    hi peter
    i have looked around their site and i cant see a stand with it. Someone may sell one though, although i intend to bolt mine down, i will put down rubber first, then bolt it over the top. I do not like the scrollsaw as a tool, i am rather scared of it, and have no confidence at all. I use my bandsaw ok, router and all other tools, but having tried the scrollsaw a few years back, i just couldn't master it, mind you, it was a cheap naffy one.
    let me know waht you choose.

    HI Steve,

    do you know if the Delta saw comes with a stand? I hear that this help reduce vibration. I'm in the same boat as you and can't decide between the Hegner 16", Delta 16" and the Dremel Scroll Station,

    You may well be right, Chris. Definitely steer clear of the older model - I also saw that demonstrated and it wasn't pretty !

    Gill -

    I think your link is to the older model which got a very mixed reception? The 01357 is the old one and then they came back with the much more civilised 01373 which was reported as having very little vibration?

    You can use an old clothes peg on the allen key too.
    Slide it over the shorter shank and tape it in place. They are cheap enough that even if you break them you have a dozen or more left in the package
