    1951 Delta Homecrafter 140-110 Scroll Saw

    Here is the next restore project....since I seem to be into some old "iron" lately... (http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ead.php?t=2140 , http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ead.php?t=1945 ). It's a Delta Homecrafter scroll saw I got as part of a trio of tools. According to the old woodworking machine site, it appears to be a model 40-110, build around 1951. It has a blower tube and light that is not shown on the saws on the site, but they are obviously original. I paid $10 for it...no motor.

    Here's mine:

    Here's one completely restored...The owner, Curtis Garrett, has restored a bunch of old tools, and is really detailed about it. He has set a high bar to meet! Check his tools out: http://www.owwm.com/Members/detail.asp?id=201

    That is a great gloat Greg, nice little unit, I'm sure it is much better than the plastic and aluminum stuff they sell today, for a lot more than $10 too!

    Stu, thanks. Yep, it's all cast iron and weighs a lot... Now I'm in need of 2 motors...one for the Atlas DP, and now this.

    It has 3 pulleys on the saw, so I guess that means it's "variable speed"...

    I have a little surprise for you Greg. Many people would have bought that saw and tossed it and just kept the light on it. That light alone will bring 50-75 bucks on EBay.

    Nice light guy!

    I think Cook is a fraud. His old rust ain't got enough rust on it ! His restores are completed with a scotch-pad and some paste wax. And I'm not the least bit envious No, I'm not - not even a little bit. (Where am I when these deals go down?.. mumble, grumble,cuss. I liked him better when his trees were blowing away... mumble , grumble )

    But seriously, great score, Greg! Gotta buy motors, huh? Maybe you can look into the 3 phase motor/variable frequency drive question for us...hmmm? (No pressure - I'm just too lazy to do it myself.)
    All the best,
