  • Modify my Delta?

    I have a Delta Scroll Master and I love it, but I would really like to make the blade removal easier. As it is I need to insert a post/hex key thingamajig. Does anyone know if they have re-designed the blade holder to a hand screw clamp? Am I able to do this? It would make life so much easier is I wasn't messing with the "key" every time I needed to reposition the blade.

    Yes:

    If your saw is less than about 12 years old, there is an upgrade called QuickSet II. Delta part no. 40-251. Some older saws, the QuickSet II only fits the upper arm due to clearance problems under the table.

    Try searching at Amazon.com under Tools and Hardware for: 'QuickSet II'

    Aside: takes above average mechnical skill and knowledge to remove and install the new blade chuck. You are your own judge on this.

      Keith, according to the Bill of rights I can't mention a website on this forum. PM me and I can give you a website that has many retrofits for changing the clamps on many different scrollsaws. Mick

        First off how thick is the board you cut?
        When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
        that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
        for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

        I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

        Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

        Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

        I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
