  • 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;

                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
