  • 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.

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

      Thanks Mike.

        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...
