  • Delta Q3 question


    Been awhile since I have had a chance to be on the site. Between work and life been real busy. Hope to participate more now. Maybe even get back in the shop after about a year of absense.

    My question is I have found a Delta Q3 variable speed, 18 inch , Quikset II blade changing system, 100% graphite arm scroll saw in my area for sale. They are asking 250 for it.

    Is this worth the price providing everything works?

    Appreicate you taking the time to give me your opinion on this saw.

    Larry, I have a Q3 and have had it for a long time and no problems with it, but in my opinion $250 is way to much money. I don't know if you can get parts for it now.

      Thanks for responding Bob,
      Will have to research and see if parts are out there.
      Kinda hope so , if not guess I will forget it.

        Larry, I also have the Q3. Bought it new about 94 for around $400. Think $250 would be a bit much.

          250 is too much for a used Q3 since Delta no longer supports it. Mine is 14 or so years old and I a dread anything breaking.

            Think I will pass on this one and try and save for the new Delta.

            Thanks again for your help.

                He did therapy for 4 weeks then at home for another 2 to get his legs ready for the surgery. The therapist called today her first inhome appointment is Thursday. Hopefully the other knee will be within a few weeks. He has an amazing resolve so I expect him not to need the walker or cane in 2 weeks....
