    Welcome to the club. I have a Delta 16' too and find that the blades break more when you are pushing too much, overheating the blade, wrong tension, bending the blade to far when moving to more inside cuts.

    If you have the Delta SS250 you will also find that you should cut off about 1/8 to 1/4 inch from the top of blade for a better clamp fit. In addition the top clamp does not hold spiral blades very well.

    Hope this helps.

      Flatten out the tips of the spiral blade more than they are. Should help in clampping the spiral blade more on the SS250. I use a steel vise to flatten about a 1/4 inch more on both ends. Or contact Mike who sells Flying Dutchman blade. The better of all blades.

        Hi Tango. What model scroll saw do you have? I know the model I bought used is a 226-M. I can't find any information on it because it'd so old. Right now I'm trying to determine the H.P. of the motor used to run these scroll saws. Can you look on yours to see what H.P. voltage, and rpm the motor is?...

        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....

        I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.
