  • 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!

              Rolf, Richard Boehl at QTE says the next shipment is expected soon and a new unit will be sent to me. From the comments in this thread it looks like it will be safe to plug the saw into the Festool. I wish I knew what caused the failure. If operator error, I don't want it to happen again....

              The lack of service facilities is an industry wide problem not just in the SS world. To find tech savvy factory support is rare.
              I am fortunate that I can fix most anything myself. I don't have a Pegas saw or I would dig into one. The big problem is most tools like Pegas are sold by distributors...

              As a Pegas dealer, I think I will chime in on this thread. It was a huge mistake to let Bob Duncan go, but I don’t know the circumstances. I Had a customer with a tension lever problem. I sent a new lever, but there was a question on how to replace it. They passed my email on to someone and he...
