  • Rockwell Delta

    Hello everyone, I recieved a Rockwell Delta Scroll Saw for Christmas and it is working not bad. Now it is a fairly old saw (made in '73) , I just wanted to know what was the general consensus on the reliability on this saw? Are they considered good quality, and will it last me a long time or should I be looking to upgrade in the next year or so? It's model number is 40-102 my googling has not come up with much info.

    Can you post a picture or two of the saw? Folks might be interested in seeing an old saw like that!

      Almost 40 years old and "working not bad" should give you an idea of its reliability. I have a few machines in my shop that are in the 60-70 year old range that are working great, and a lathe that's probably closer to 80. As long as it works for you (does what you need it to do) don't be in any hurry to dismiss the "old gal.". And yes, please do post a picture.

        I got my notice and and I paid for another year. This year I had to make the following change.

        Fix a 10 year old bug that didn't allow Scrollmania to move to different machines.

        Hi Tony - I built a wedgie sledge pretty much immediately after you first mentioned it. It worked fine within the capabilities of my homebuilt table saw but I quickly realized that to get the best out of it I needed a new saw, hence my recent acquisition.

        Hi planeur - thanks for the reply.

        Just to be clear. I wasn't suggesting that you change your original sheriff, rather that you apply some of the ideas for future projects. Nevertheless you can see the difference in the modified version

        I can definitely see in your Heron that...

        Congrats to all you folks who got your jabs

        Still no news as to when elderly folk will get their shots here in Mexico. I tuned in to the Monday morning government bulletin this morning only to find out that the Health Secretary who normally gives these bulletins was absent. He was admitted...

        Glad to hear it, Rolf. It shouldn’t be so harrowing just trying to do the right thing, but good that you didn’t give up.
