  • 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

        Hi ibber - LOL!

        I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

        I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

        Hi Rolf - the unit I bought will also do Tig welding once you buy the optional accessories - torch, nozzles etc: - plus it will do conventional stick welding too. I doubt I'll be heading down the TIG route anytime soon, at least not for the projects I have in mind at the moment.

        Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
        My dream was to buy a TIG so that...
