Looking for some help with involving Deluge, samba, and file permissions

So, my current setup is a box running Slackware 14.1. I have samba share running with a share that's accessible to anyone on my local network, so all files within the share are owned by nobody/nogroup. I also have Deluge running it's web interface some I can remotely download torrents to the server and I tried to set it up so it downloads the files to a location within my home directory and then moves them to the samba share directory when the download is complete. Deluge is running under my user so all files it generates are owned by me/users and it can't write to the samba directory that's owned by nobody/nogroup (as stated above). How would I go about setting this up some samba can move files to the samba share once the files are completed?

How about mounting the download area locally as a Samba share? That way, Deluge would be indirectly writing to the Samba share, and the files would end up being owned by nobody/nogroup.
