  • Delta 40-690

    I purchased a new Delta 40-690 in January, 2012. I like the machine, but it has begun doing some strange things, two to be exact. First, only when cutting, that lamp changed light intensity; dimming and brightening. Also, the saw has for no known reason yesterday sped up while cutting. Could I be doing something wrong? Or is it the machine? My old saw never did this.

    Thanks.

    Well Randy, don't know specifically about the problems you listed but you should make sure to contact your local DeWalt / Delta dealer and keep in touch with them. They are pretty good about making things right.

      My Hawk did the same thing when I first got it. Turned out to be a faulty control circuit on the board. They sent me a new one and it has been right as rain ever since. Delta is usually good at customer service so as Doug said, contact them ASAP.

        Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

        We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

        What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
