  • Delta 40-690

    Well. for better or worse I bought a new Delta 40-690 scroll saw yesterday. It was a little spendy for my budget. But I'm hoping it was worth the money. I just wasn't having any luck finding something on Craigs List.
    Got it all assembled last night. I haven't cut anything with it yet but did turn it on. Compared to my Ryobi it was amazing how quiet and vibration free it was. I'm still a little clumsy when it comes to installing the blade in the clamps. It's a different system than what Ryobi has. I'll also have to find some kind of stool. The stand it came with makes it higher. I won't be able to sit in front of it with a folding chair like I did my Ryobi.

      He’s the one with the patience. At least i don’t ricochet off the walls as much as I used to! We certainly proved opposites attract. How dull life would be if we were the same.

      Glad to hear he is getting back on track. After seeing what my wife went through, after her fall, I wouldn't wish rehab or PT on anyone.

      It will sit on the coffee table for a couple of weeks/months - Until I finish the next one. Then it get relegated to the collection to await the next craft show. Or it may go to the art gallery for a few months.
