  • Taking back Delta SS350, Getting Dewalt DW788

    Well, here's the story... I couldn't figure out why i couldn't keep my blade attatched to the top Quick Clamp. Thought it was slipping out. This was driving me nuts. Then the light went off. What was happening was the Quick Clamp lever wouldn't stay closed and would keep popping open. Finally, it wouldn't stay closed at all. So tomorrow off I go to Lowes to return the Delta and then by a Dewalt.

    However, I'm not sure where to buy it. The best price I found locally is $440 with no stand. Grizzly Indstrial on the net has it with the stand and light for $419 but not sure if it's new or refurb. I'll know tomorrow. The nice thing about buying closeby is that if there is a problem, I know it'll be taken care of well AND I'll have it TOMORROW. Bottom line... I'm getting what the big boys and girls are using. Now all I have to do is learn to scroll like you experts.

    I have a Delta P-20 and had the same problem " clamps poping open " so I called Delta and they sent me a new clamp it worked just fine then the other one started doing the same so another call and a new clamp. So far they have worked OK.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

      I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

      I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
      Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

      One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

      I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

      Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

      If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
