Just purchased this Delta scroll saw through Craig’s list. I am thrilled to have it. It has variable speed and a air blower for the sawdust. Does anyone have any idea of model, year and where I can find any needed parts?

Did you try the Delta site? Maybe they can help.

It looks like a nice saw and should give you lots of good use.

Looks a bit like the Scroll Saw attachement I have for my (original model) Shopsmith. As the company doesn’t supply parts for the older machines, I’ve resorted, with some luck, to eBay. Some people are in the same boat, or are farming out their old machines for parts. (Lucky for us, but a shame, as these machines will likely outlive some of the newer ones)

Bruce:

I noticed a new LumberJock sign up called PopPop. he is a machinest by trade and if you need repair parts he might be able to mfg them for you if they are not available on the used market.

Nice machine, before I got my newer Delta lathe I was using one I bought off a friend up north that had one in his garage that belonged to his great grandfather who had gotten it out of the factory he worked in down by Detroit. My friend figured the lathe to be well over a hundred years old. It ran good when I put a motor and bearings in it. In fact it still works good I’m going to hate to sell it, but I don’t have the room for it. jockmike

Hi Bruce. As luck would have it, I have a Powermatic Model 95 Scroll Saw in my basement that is identical to your Delta. Mine needs a little work, but I haven’t got around to it yet. The technical manuals for these saws are almost non existant, however there are owner’s manuals about that have parts lists in them. I was able to buy some parts for mine through the WMH Tool Group. They are the parent company for Powermatic. If you go to www.delta.com there is a parts section that you might be able to get some parts through. I believe these scroll saws went out of production in the `70’s. About the only difference in yours and mine is yours is gray and mine is green. Keep in touch.

It is a Delta / Rockwell 40-440, I have one that is the same except the variable speed function, You can find parts on various web sites, I found the best place is Ebay for parts that you can’t get on the Delta page because they don’t make the parts anymore, the parts can be kinda spendy even for used parts. Great looking saw.
