  • 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.

            I did that with Creative Woodworks. But when Bruce's group had their monthly meetings and swaps, somehow or other the ones I didn't buy ended up here! I keep all my holiday ones separate. But I also look at other patterns and think how I can reuse it. But sometimes that is just too much for my brain...

            Since I refuse to subscribe till they do something about the patterns in the pull out. They even made the DVD tough to print patterns.

            What I do is look at the index of the book on scrollsawer.com and if see something I might want to cut I go to Walmart and check out the book. If I like...

            Absolutely everyone here has made valid points. That's part of what I've liked about this group.....different view points and different ideas. And we respect the diversity. You people rock!

            I too miss Bob Duncan. I do not think anyone from FC has taken over that role at least on this forum. If they have I am not sure who. Like Betty, I owe a lot to FC and this forum. If it was not for them and this forum I would have probably turned my saw into a boat anchor years ago. Oh how I looked...

            Yes I would sand all around the hand and feet to give it some depth.
