  • Lower Blade Clamp Wrench for a Delta 40-540

    I just bought an older Delta 40-540 scroll saw and it is missing the special combination allen wrench / positioning pin tool that allows you to replace the lower part of the blade. I can loosen the lower clamp by using a separate allen wrench and a separate pin but the tool would be easier. The usual parts replacement stores and Delta themselves don't carry this wrench any longer. I can design my own tool if needed but what else would be an alternative? Are there any replacement chucks such as the Pegas type that could be used or? Any thoughts?

    Welcome to the forum. I am not familiar with that model. Can you post a picture of the clamps?

      You can replace it with Pegas Clamps, ask Denny at Artcrafters

        NC Scroller - it's a little hard to take photos of the blade clamps so I'll attach photos from the Delta 40-540 instruction manual.

        Scrollerpete -- I'm trying to contact Denny at Artcrafters but on his site he has two Pegas clamp kits and the second which implies it only fits a Delta 40-694 which is a much newer Delta scroll saw. I'll keep trying via phone.

        Thanks to both of you,
        Cheers, Roy

          Those blade clamps look nothing like I have ever seen before. I doubt the Pegas clamps will work.

            Thanks for the comments. I finally designed my own tool that works great.

              Glad you got it worked out. Happy endings are always the best. Can you post a picture? It might be helpful to someone else in the future.

                Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. ūü§™ We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole. I tried to sign onto our bank tonight and it is ‚Äútemporarily...

                My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                New here and looking for some help and guidance on scroll work and saws.
                I have a Hegner M25S and have recently made some upgrades and would like to improve the blade clamping. So looking for ideas and help.

                Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
