My daughter and wife have taken an interest in scroll saw puzzles and Christmas ornaments. My old Delta saw, affectionately referred to as “The Vibrator,” (No innuendo intended nor implied,) didn’t give me any confidence in teaching my daughter and wife how to use it. So, as I’ve been coveting the purchase of any new tool lately, I decided on a sale priced DW-788. As beautiful a machine as it unpacked to my shop, it was quickly nicknamed, “Rattler!” I wanted to call it the, “knocker,” but I had to stop that particular line of tool nomenclature.
It makes this knocking, rattling, clicking sound that drives you nuts. It sounds like something is hitting something else. With some reading and searching and googling, I did find a very interesting short little site: http://www.scrollsaws.com/SawReviews/DewltTuneUp.htm
The last paragraph dealt with a similar sounding problem. After performing the explained adjustment, my saw is noiseless.
I just thought I’d pass this link along.
