Delta Q3 40-650

Delta Q3 40-650

01-16-2018 01:42 PM by tomvette | 2 comments »

For comparison, I own the Delta Q3 40-650 and an RBI Hawk 220-3, both great saws. The Hawk is a 3 speed saw (via belt pulley change) featuring parallel arms, and aluminum construction. The Delta Q3/40-650 is a variable speed saw leveraging a graphite C arm on a 90 pound chassis. The Delta has minimal vibration, likely the result of the low moving mass of the C arm coupled with the heavy chassis. The cutting speed is fast and “buttery” due to the non parallel C arm design....

Nearly everything you could ask for in a scroll saw

Nearly everything you could ask for in a scroll saw

04-26-2012 02:11 PM by wbrisett | 5 comments »

I have a shop full of tools; bandsaw, planer, joiner, table saw, drill press, and scroll saw. One of the things I’ve loved doing over the past eight years or so is making things on the scroll saw. After initially buying a Craftsman scroll saw and putting it to use, I saw a need for a better saw. I found a great deal on a used PS Wood 21-in scroll saw that I used for the past seven years. However, recently I was making some gifts that required me to do some very delicate fret-type work. ...

Video Review of my Excalibur Ex-21

Video Review of my Excalibur Ex-21

Hey Lumberjocks, After using a $10.00 scroll saw that I bought off of Craigslist for a couple years, I decided it was time to break out the bucks and upgraded to an Ex-21 saw. That was a year ago, now that I have the technology to make boring videos I figured I should do a review of it since that seems to be the thing to do when you make videos. So here is my less than spectacular video review of my EX-21. And just in case your wondering, just try and take my EX from me, I dare ya!!lol

My DW788 Scrollsaw Review and purchase experience.

09-11-2011 04:43 PM by Pie | 15 comments »

I was told the saw would be received in a week and I got it in about 4 days which was really nice. I also bought the stand that goes with the saw for an extra $46 and it was money well spent. The stand was very easy to assemble. I unpacked the saw (I bought a Used but New one) and could tell the saw had been opened and then repacked. The saw was in perfect condition, no scratches or blemishes at all. I picked the saw up and placed it on the stand and put the tear drop table on which was a sna...

Delta  40-690 20" scroll saw

Delta 40-690 20" scroll saw

02-07-2012 04:38 AM by RetiredCoastie | 6 comments »

I was lucky enough to get this saw while Woodcraft’s had it on sale for $349.00 last week. It was delivered today and I stoped everything I was doing and put it together. After reading reviews that dinged it for some problems I inspected it carefully. One of the issues was the attach screws for the light. I inspected the screws and then the threads in the saw housing. I found that the first few threads were non existant and the screws were just a bit to short and had no bite. I bought l...

good saw great price

good saw great price

Less than a month ago I started into scrolling with an ancient Delta saw I got at a yard sale for $5.00. It only took me about a day to discover 2 things. first I was facinated with scrolling and second I would need a better saw if I was to really do any serious work. So I started researching saws. I found this King Canada saw at a local tool store for $120.00 CAD. I have never been happier. It doesn’t have all the features that a much more expensive saw would have and I had to do a lit...

Whem I first purchased this saw I was happy with it. It was a dramatic improvement over what I had been using. Now after using it for several weeks I must, unfortunately, change my view. I have been using this saw rather extensively and what I am finding, after completly disassembleing it is that it is almost completly worn out. the blade holders (made of plastic) no longer hold the blades properly and the tension arrangement loosens up while you are cutting. I understand that it is an entry ...

Craftsman 11' magnetic scroll saw

Craftsman 11' magnetic scroll saw

12-06-2012 02:22 AM by ralbuck | 19 comments »

This saw is a 1952 Craftsman magnetic scroll saw. It does not have a motor. It is an electromagnet that pulls and releases a spring steel plate that has the blade hook attached. It Has an upper spring steel arm holding the upper blade hook. It uses 5” pin end blades. The capacity is limited to about 1/2 inch or less. The saw has been modified and is now a 20”. It started life as an 11 inch saw. The modification was made when the saw was probably already 15+ years old. I c...
