  • Looking at Delta 40-690

    Bought a used, cheap $35 saw several years ago, and have enjoyed puzzles and such. Looking now to upgrade. Still looking at used, but came across what I believe is a pretty good deal on a new Delta 40-690 at my local Woodcraft store. Saw w/light and base for $350. More than I wanted to spend, but it has everything I wanted. Is it too good to pass up?

    That is a very good introductory price and I know it has been well received by several members here. If you can afford it I'd go for it. One word of caution. Take a good straight edge and be certain the face of the table is flat prior to taking your new saw home. There have been some quality control issues with this matter on the new saw. So open the saw at the store and check it out. Let us know how you like your new saw and share some pics of your puzzles with the family.

        My first creation in intarsia , with a gift from my sister of that little puffin in stained glass. After couple of tests , I created this frame , as in my blue heron, and put the puffin leaving the water and waves, between rocks and with a look to his smiling rock mounster, on a beautiful sunset....

        I have a VacuFlo system for my house. It might have enough suction for a small table saw but not for the large cabinet makers saw like you have.

        Like the others have said, your Walvac might work fine for smaller tools, especially for a hand sander.

        The VacuFlo actually uses...

        I got my second shot last week here at the Eisenhower Med Center in Palm Springs. I am 82 and in their system and was contacted by them to come in for my first shot. At the completion of that shot I was given my appt. for the second shot.
        Like yours Rolf they were really organized both times....
