  • New Delta 40-690 20" scroll saw

    Hi all, it's been awhile. I just noticed the new Delta 40-690 20 inch scroll saw. It looks pretty much like the DeWalt 788. I also, just found out that Delta is now part of Dewalt or vice versa. Kind of explains the similarities. Has anyone done a review on the new Delta 40-690 yet? Anyone own one?

    Dave, from what I have read, the Delta is a clone of the Dewalt 788. I believe Delta and Dewalt are owned by Black & Decker. These big companies buying out each other, it is hard to keep up with them.

      If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

      After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
      I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

      Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

      Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
