I have a new delta scrollsaw number 406.4 I lost the insruction book Oh it’s here somewhere and I spent an hour today trying to figure out how the quick change blade holder works. Does anyone have a delta or that particular model like to email me a copy of the page about blade changing tensioning etc I would be most grateful.I know I have limb movement problems parkinsonsian but believe me this is just ignorance when I figure it out I will be fine I figure there must be a way of adjusting for blade length as all my blades fit ok in either top or bottom but seem short I finally fitted a blade after a good hour but it was hard work please put me out of my misery I bought the saw new about a year ago but this is the first time I have used it regards Alistair

I have 8 different scroll saws including an old Delta. I looked at the picture you linked too. All my scroll saws all are pretty much the same. May I suggest you take a close up or two of your blade section and I will bet either I or another scroller will be able to walk you through this. Try to take close ups of the whole blade section, top, bottom and sides if you can. Also is this pin less blades or not.I am pretty positive we here can help you.

Allison…..8 saws! I am duly impressed. Have you used them all and upgraded until you have 8 or is this a mild obsession?

Alistair, You may be able to download the owners manual from Delta’s web site. And Allison, 8 SAWS???!! I had to justify having two hammers to my wife. Watch me buy 8 of anything and see what happens. I shudder to think about it!

Oh my gosh. I don’t have an elite one in the bunch. Only 3 were bought new, all others are Swap Meet finds. I guess me writing that sounded way wrong. I was only trying to tell Alistair that they all are basically the same, when it comes to blade insertion. 2 of them were gifts from my oldest son, NOT NEW.

Alistair, I can’t help you in this regard but I am sure your problem will be solved because 19th of May is your BD. Something useful has to happen on this day.

Scotsman, does your saw take t-type blades, or does it just have jaws that clamp on the blade ?
