    Scroll Saw table top finishes and care questions

    Picked up a Delta 40-601 a week or so back off of a CL listing, paid a little less than they wanted for it and all of the functions work as expected so I guess it was a good deal. So far my skills are rather sad, but I'm trying so that's a good thing. :cool: Anyways, my question is about the...

    Care, feeding and use of Stanley 81 Scrapers
