  • Delta Q3 question

    Hello;

    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.

    Thanks:
    Larry

    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!

        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.

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

                He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
