  • Delta scroll saw for $350 @ Woodcraft

    i got an issue of a woodworking magazine this week and it had a Woodcraft ad in it saying they will be having a sale for the Delta scroll saw with light and stand starting on 1-28-12 'while supplies last' and i think the price was going to be around $350

    Buy Delta 20 Variable Speed Scroll Saw Model 40-690 at Woodcraft

    thats a fantastic price again and im hoping i can get a few of my items sold so i can buy one! but i wanted others here to know about this great deal. its not a Dewalt but its the same exact thing and you can always paint it yellow if you absolutely have to.

    Delta has come out with a new model, 40-695. Check out the new post under "Tools and blades".

      If you are thinking about buying one you had better not wait. The individually owned stores (Baltimore,MD) were selling them for $349.99 at the beginning of Jan. and sent an add in there e-mail flier. When I called about them they were all ready sold out and said they would not be getting any more because they were being closed out. I called the Woodcraft catalog store and they had some but they were still $619.00. You might want to call them and see if you can reserve one for the sale price. I did track one down in the Delaware store and picked it up last week and so far I am happy with it.

          Follow the thread Mick spoke of to see my comments on that Delta saw. And yes, there is a very limited supply of them, the Woodcraft store nearest me got in 6 of them two days ago, and as of this afternoon they only had one still available. Jump on it if you can afford it!

            I've had a chance to try out the new Delta. It's almost the same as the old one, but I see a few cosmetic changes. The speed dial and on/off switch look a little different, but the action, speed, and blade systems are the same as far as I can tell. Now it looks like they switched up a few parts when they painted the DW788 grey.

              it figures

              I just got a 40-690 for $470ish. Have not put it together - trying to decide if I'll have the table expoxied or powder coated or something to prevent rust (I'll start a new thread on this).

              I was in Home Depot browsing magazines and saw the ad, which triggered me to search (via Google) and find this thread. Totally coincidentally, I joined this earlier today from work.

                Depending on where you bought it, some places will price match.The only problem with that is they exclude close out items, and would most likely they would call this a close out sale. I apply Johnson's Paste wax to all of my cast iron stationary tools tables,it helps prevent rust and makes the wood slide on the surface much easier.

                    In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                    Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                    The outside
                    of the extension is almost finished apart...

                    Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
