Oh, the vibration issue.
All small, low priced saws vibrate. Actually, from my experience, the Deltas are not near as bad as some. Mine is mounted to a table. I scroll in the sit down position. That table is anchored firmly to a work bench that has probably at least five hundred pounds of tools on it. It’s been there so long, and is so vibration free, that I forgot it had any vibration at all.
Also, if you decide to mount it to scroll sitting down, as a lot of scrollers do, use longer bolts and put a board under the rear mounting bolts. This elevates the back of the saw, so it’s sitting at an angle. It makes it easier to see what you’re working on without straining your neck to look over the table. Different people like the back at different heights. You’ll have to experiement to see what you like. Mine is elevated three inches in the back.
