  • Delta Q3 Need some assistance please.

    I just bought a Q3 Delta 40-650 (type 1 or 2 I'm not sure) from a government surplus auction. It looks like it is in fantastic condition...except it doesn't have the top tension piece, there is nothing there. I am in need of some suggestions. I want to get my $35 investment up and cutting wood while maintaining a student budget, any ideas?

    It seems they sell the individual pieces online at: I added it all up and the whole assembly total would be like $120. I only want to use this as a very last resort. Please help!

    I moved your thread to a more appropriate forum to maximize traffic and get you more responses to your request/question.

    You are looking for the upper chuck assembly part # 1349994 which comes as a unit. Try a DeWalt repair store. They owned Delta for a long time and they may still be able to help you. If all else fails, call Delta factory directly. I don't have their number any more but they were in Tenn. I think they are in S. Carolina now. Good luck.

        Thanks a lot! Is part # 1349994 synonymous with both type 1 or 2? I'm not sure which type I have.

            Thanks! Rick had a very helpful post about the Q3. I'm liking this Q3 more and more, even though I haven't gotten a blade in it yet!

              I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

              That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

              The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

              Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
