  • Selling my Delta 40-601

    I thought I would see if anybody here would be interested in buying my Delta 40-601 scroll saw. I live in Oklahoma City. For those of you who don't know, the 40-601 is a WORK HORSE to say the least. It is a variable speed 18" model. It uses the "C-arm" design. It sits on a VERY heavy duty stand that was purchased w/ the saw from Delta. It also has an over head lamp w/ it. I have been told that this was the last American made scroll saw that Delta sold, and I don't doubt it because this thang is a BEAST. I recently used it to cut some 1" solid red oak and it didn't even hesitate....I was amazed. I will also be including well over 200 new blades. Some are delta blades and some are Olson blades....various sizes. I have only used it twice, I bought it from an older man who also had used it very little. He paid just over $700 for the entire set up. I have no idea what is a fair price for this saw. Please let me know what you think would be fair.

      My father-in-law has a much smaller(cheaper) scroll saw that I can use when I need one. I am getting into woodworking, but have had little use thus far for a scroll saw. I'm sure I will regret selling it eventually. It's pretty impressive to use. There is virtually zero vibration, very smooth.

        Would somebody atleast tell me what they think it's worth so that I can just list it in the paper?

        I would really appreciate some help.

          I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

          Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

          Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

          I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
