Delta Scroll Saw problem ( Help Plz )

Hi guys,

I just recently bought a used Delta Scroll Saw off crigslist. The guy didn't have the manual and didn't really know how to use it. I'm a newb when it comes to power tools. This is my first power tool purchase and I have no experience with it.

My problem is that I can't figure out how to assemble the chuck locking lever ( hope that's right? ) Its a small lever with a few screws and a odd shaped spring. I will provide pictures.








I've done a ton of searching on Google and can't really find to much info. The diagrams I've found are for other models of delta saws. Most of the pictures I've found are way to small and fuzzy.

I hope some1 here can provide me with some info maybe even a video if that's not asking too much. Please let me know if you need any other info or pictures. Thanks

~ Nick

I think you may be missing a part or two. I have a saw with that same clamp system. I'll try to get a picture up on this thread later today.

Here is the manual for you...
