  • 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.

          i took most of it apart except the motor and greased it all up, it still
          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.

                          Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                          Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                          Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
