  • Delta 18" Scroll Saw #40-601

    Does anyone have or used this type of scroll saw? Delta 18" Scroll Saw #40-601. There is one on Craigs list in Michigan for $125.00 negotiable. I have a brother in Michigan who has always said if I find something I am interested in he would go and check it out and/or get it for me. The only thing he said is that there are parts of Detroit he won't go to no matter what.

    Right now anything would be better than what I'm using. I don't thing my Ryobi will take anymore cobbling together. Right now the arm for the dust blower is held up by a plastic tie jammed into the arm because the threads are stripped out. I used 3 different knobs last week end and after a few uses the knobs would not tighten anymore. Very frustrating. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

    Did you read the reviews Bob made in his comparison article on scroll saws?

      Forgot about that. I'll have to look at that again when I get home.

      Thanks Mike.

        A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

        I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

        Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...

        This is only my opinion.

        Hi Linda, My first reaction is it looks good, and my new toy craving started to twitch, but I thing it will be very limiting very quickly.

        It is a small engraving machine and if that is what you want and need maybe OK. You are limited to 1/8 shank...

        [QUOTE=Quartz43;n873079]No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

        I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure...
