  • 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.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

      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.

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

            Thanks again for your help.

              For those with a Q3:
              I found a web site called that has alot of delta scroll saw parts.
              Maybe this info will help someone.

                Just curious about the 13' extension. Building material, especially sheet goods are in 4' increments. Why 13'?...

                Hi folks - I really feel sorry for you people north of the border.

                Here in Central Mexico, apart from a couple of days at the end of January where we had a couple of showers in the evenings we have seen hardly any clouds in the sky during the day since the New Year and although we 've...

                Wow! - this a stunning piece!

                In particular the head is so lifelike it feels like if you got too close to this bird he (or she) would reach out and nip you with its beak....

                Hi all -

                Around the beginning of year I mentioned in a post that I was looking at ways to extend my existing workshop space to give me room to accommodate a midi lathe I had bought and to also allow me to undertake smallish carpentry projects in addition to scrollsaw work. Well, I finally
