RE: Delta 16" scroll saw blade clamp problem
I have a 16" Delta Scroll Saw, but it is an older model, I had to buy the toggle blade clamps as an option. On your blade clamps, do they have a bolt and aircraft nut that can be adjusted to varying blade thicknesses. On mine this bolt has to be loosened or tightened so the clamp will toggle over with correct amount of clamp pressure. Also it is possible to get too much of blade in bottom holder so top does not have enough to clamp onto. Excessive blade tension can also cause a problem, especially with a new blade that has oil on the surface. Wipe clamps and blades clean, adjust proper clamp pressure, center blade, and you should be on your way. Let me know is you still have problems, and we can discuss further.
