  • 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.

        Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...

        Bruce said he felt like he needed to look for a job when he first retired. That lasted for about a month and he hasn’t looked back since. I had a friend whose company gave him a 50th party. At the party he told them he was retiring in 2 weeks! Trust us, you will love being retired.

        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.
