    Default Delta 13" Scroll Saw

    Can anyone give me any information on a Delta 13" scroll saw model
    40-130C. I want to buy a used saw to see if I will like this type of woodworking as I am now Retired and there is one for sale for $80

    Here's the manual

    Single speed judging by the switch. Some parts no longer available.

    Where are you located?

    I have a Scroll Saw for sale -- it's in the Swap Meet Forum.

    Add some location information to your profile -- you will get more help that way.

    Anyway -- that is not a great scroll saw. You would be better off buying a variable speed saw with a big table.

    DeWalt and Excalibur (General) make nice saws.

    Thanks willr. I will not get that 13" but have found a fairly new Delta 16" with a good sturdy stand and lots of extra blades so I think I will pick it up and use for a while untill I decide if I really need a scroll saw(which I am sure I will).
    Retired no longer Tired.

    That's what I did a few months ago and I ended up buying a better quality scroll saw ,now I have two and don't use the cheaper one at all.
    I might put a metal blade on it and try cutting soft thin metal with it.
    Happy scrolling.

    Delta doesn't exist anymore, or if they do they don't seem to sell parts, at least in Canada. I would consider that when shopping for anything new, or new to you. If you can't get parts, that's an issue. Try to locate parts just to see if you can, before you invest in a disappointment.

    What info do you need from the manual? There is not a lot to know about these saws except what and where to lube and how to change the blades!! There seems to be a good supply of parts available but I don't know where to get an Owner's manual.

    Try www.ereplacementparts.com
    Looks like they've got all the parts, less a few obsolete screws. Also an exploded parts diagram.
