Default 24" 40-110 Delta Scroll Saw Part Needed

Hello,

I am a "newbie" to this forum. I own a 24inch Delta 40-110 scroll saw about 50 years old. My kids and I used it for many years and created a ton of memories with it. Unfortunately, we overtightened the set screw on the lower chuck and broke it. I have been hunting for a replacement chuck (the part that grips the lower end of the saw blade) for some time with no luck. The saw is a Delta Homecrft which appears to have been manufactured in Milwaukee. Does anyone have a good idea as to where I can buy a replacement chuck for it? Thanks. Brian

Default Thanks for the E-Bay tip

Thanks for the E-Bat tip. I will give it a try. It seems like a chuck should be a common item to me, but this one resembles the old needle in a haystack-hard to find.

You might also check the VintageMachinery.org | Welcome website. If all else fails you might be able to get a local machine shop to repair or make a replacement part for you. This last option is usually the most expensive way to go, so use it as such, but get a quote from them before you let them do it. It may turn out to be cheaper to just buy a new saw.

Thanks for the tip on the vintage machinery site and the machine shop. I will try vintage macinery first. I agree that the machine shop option may be cost prohibitive, but that may be my only option-if I can't locate this part elsewhere. Brian

The lower chuck is just stripped right? (Meaning not broken into pieces...)

If there is enough meat there, what about a heli-coil insert of the original size?

Also if there is enough meat there, you could always tap to the next size thicker. Not much difference in thickness between #6 and #8 machine screws.

Mike, this is a year and a half old thread, the OP hasn't been back. Probably a minor mod to just put a different blade holder on it, I'd think.

I have found that hand tools are the best choice when I want to make mistakes at a slower rate of speed.

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
