  • Delta 24" scroll saw

    How does this old timer rate in the world of scroll saws? It was acquired from a school shop and needed just a few parts to get it up and running. Seems to be real smooth running, but needs some minor help with the lower blade clamp. Comments?

    No picture but I assume....not a good thing to do..... that it is an old Delta with a fixed arm and a spring loaded upper blade clamp.

    This is something like a JET saw.
    They never die. The upper blade clamps are a bit finicky for fretwork, but Gary Browning uses his JET for his work with no problems.

      Cute Pattern.
      I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

      This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

      No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
