Default Help! Discontinued part on Delta Scrollsaw!

Hello Forum,

I promise if you'll help me get my Delta Scrollsaw going, I'll be useful on the forum.

I have a Delta 40-540 scroll saw. LOVE IT. I use it all the time and have worn out the cap screw that holds the lower end of the blade below the table. I've looked online at several parts dealers and they all say "discontinued" or "obsolete".

How can this be?

All I can figure is there must be a new assembly to replace the old one.

The part # is 1246051. On the parts diagram in the manual, it is #136. The spec is: NLA Cap Screw, M5x0.8x12 Hex SKT HD or SOC HD.

Can you shed any light on this "obsolete" part? It must be the most worn-out part requested. I can only guess that Delta realized they needed to redesign the blade-clamp. Perhaps I need to retrofit my scrollsaw with it.

Much thanks!!!

Welcome aboard. Might be worth a trip to your local hardware store. Pretty sure that's just a common cap screw.

Welcome to the forum, Mike.

I have moved the thread to the wood working section....

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Check with MSC, Fastenal or any fastener distributor. Or check the websites of the first two names. Start with the local hardware store as the cost plus shipping might be high for just one screw. Let us know what you find.

Also keep Rick's Scrollsaw on your list for help troubleshooting delta saws. Rick has a lot of experience with them and may be a handy source of knowledge. He helped me out with some blade clamp issues long ago.
