  • vibration ?

    I know that when you have junk you have junk. I have a 16" vs delta. Was given to me, so the price was right. Are thier any little tricks of the trade to take out a little of the vibration? I have learned a lot on this old saw ! A good one would probaly scare me !

    Don't have a Delta but...

    Mounting the saw to a firm heavy base always helps no matter the brand.... sometimes a real good cleaning of the arms and greasing and oiling will bring some of it down a notch...

      Is the saw on a dedicated stand? If so, can you add some weight to the base? If the saw sits on a bench, put a piece of heavy carpet padding underneath to help dampen the vibration and bolt it directly to the bench top.

      Otherwise check for any loose hardware on the saw itself. Sometimes fasteners work loose and can contribute to excessive vibration.

        Try placing the saw on a piece of carpeting or carpet pad. Then fasten it to a heavy workbench or saw stand. Having the stand setting on a concrete floor will help. Running the saw at a lower speed, most saws will vibrate when run at high speeds. Just the nature of the beasts. Good luck with it.

            Cutting Styles
            by millwab
            In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

            Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

            The outside
            of the extension is almost finished apart...
