Need help with my saw.
My neighbor has had a 16" 2 speed delta scroll saw for about 20 years without hardly any use since it has never worked right for him from the beginning. I have never used one before but do have some savvy fixing things. I looked it over for him trying different tensions, checked square and changed the blade many times. Summary, nothing changed. The blade will cut with 1/8 inch wood and regresses to not wanting to cut at all on 1 inch thick wood. The side to side travel of blade appears alright. The blade does pull away on the down stroke, my guess 1/16”. The neighbors problem is opposite of what is mentioned in this thread or another way to put it, the blade is moving forward on the upward travel which is the non cutting stroke. Non cutting stroke is pushing the wood away and therefore no cut? It appears we need to focus on moving top adjustments back or bottom adjustments forward. I am a new member here and it appears this thread is possible the best for being on topic. Any advice is appreciated, thank you

I've moved your post. Tagging onto another thread usually ends up in your thread getting overlooked.
Welcome to the forum. I hope someone will have the answer to your question.
