  • Delta SS350 problems

    i'm noticing a "clunking" sound happening more and more frequently with my
    delta ss350. its 3 years old and i'm wondering if anyone else has had this
    problem with them. thanks.

    Take it apart before it gets worse. I took mine apart and put white lithium grease on all of the joints. The back arm is only stamped steel, no bearings. I also found that the set screw on the counter balance was loose. That is where my noise came from. The saw runs better than new now.

      Mine doesn't clank so much as squeak. But only sometimes. I tried oiling it but it didn't seem to help.

      I'm not sure I trust myself enough to take it apart. May take it over to the Delta folks down the street after the holidays and have them look at it. It's still under warranty, thank goodness.

        i'm going to give that a try. i already replaced the rear link bar and
        the 2 screws thinking it was that but it still clunks. i'll let you know
        what i find, if anything.

          clunks.

            Are the blade clamps tight? I mean where the blade clamp assembly is fastened to the arm. I will look at my saw when I get home.

              according to the dewalt service center, the upper and lower arms are bad. i'm not overly impressed as this saw is only a little over 3 years old.

                Had the same problem with mine on the clunking noise it was also the set screw loose on the counter balance on my SS350

                        since it was going to cost me $150 to get my delta back running, really
                        the Excalibur only cost me $350 (CDN). someone pinch me.

                          The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

                          I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

                          IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....

                          No, but I like that guess. It’s very useful and my niece wants one.
