How Much Is A Delta Table Saw

Like Keith said before, the only purchases I regret are those that I didn’t make. I can honestly say I’ve never felt raped, that I over paid or that I’ve been taken advantage of. Naturally some deals are better than others.

I expect it is still being offered only because it has a right-tilt blade, where all of the new models of the Delta tablesaw are left-tilt. As of this writing (2/2011), it is listed on their website, although I couldn’t find it for sale anywhere online. The Harwi 210 is a very special rip and crosscut saw machine for use in workshops where 210mm cutting height is used. Tiltable from 0º to 45º, with a maximum cutting height from 10 to 210mm with saw blade Ø 600 m…

Sharp, well tuned tools will always out-perform dull well tuned tools. Currently, the Unisaw line of cabinet saws are the only models they offer. The current crop of Delta Unisaw machines get excellent owner reviews; in fact, I did not find a single negative review of the new Unisaw.

In the example, the date code indicated a machine built in November, 1982 which would have been in Rockwell’s 1983 fiscal year. I received this list from a fellow OWWM member. Someone had given it to him at his local Delta service center with no explanation or additional information. For the most part I have found it to be valid but have run into a couple of instances where it has not been 100% correct.

Help Fixing Delta Contractors Table Saw

And, as you can expect, this saw comes with all the basic safety features and accessories. It is precise and accurate in it’s woodcutting, and the fence system works very well and is easy to adjust. This is a hybrid table saw model from a reputable brand that works well, is built with high-quality materials and is sturdy during use. The main thing that a table saw is good for is ripping down stock with precise control. If you want to build cabinets all day, with repeated precision then go get a cabinet saw.

I will upgrade to a 3 HP model Saw Stop in the future at some point. I cut a lot of 4/4, 6/4, and 8/4 hardwoods. I use an 8″ dado stack, and would like the extra “umphh” a larger motor has. I also look forward to better DC. I have had no problems with my 1hp contractor saw either. I run full kerf Freud Diablo blades, and have no problem with 8/4 Jatoba & Purpleheart. If your using the right type of blade, and the blade is sharp you are good to go.

When in doubt you should always try and verify the vintage of your machine with any subtle attributes of the manufacturing period. For instance, a Unisaw with a cast iron base pigeonholes that saw for a certain time period. Raised sheet metal rays on the 14” bandsaw make it the earliest of vintages. As this project goes on it’s hoped that all of these changes will be brought to light and put in written form. In the mean time feel free to email me with suggestions or questions. Most of what I find interesting comes from these requests.

I’ve never had any regrets….it truly was an upgrade in most aspects, and the saw doesn’t struggle or slow with anything I’ve thrown at it. The sheer mass, power, and refinement of the mechanisms make it nicer to use and more stable. Since it’s not working as hard, and the mechanisms are beefier, it should last longer than a smaller saw. Cutting speed was never a concern for me, but the easier feed rate allows better control, vs the saw dictating the speed.

Just my opinions based upon what I typically see stuff for here in the Midwest. We dont really need it, but figured if the deal was good enough, why not. It does have both cast wings on it and a pretty rough right hand extention table. We already have a 5HP 3Ph Powermatic LHT and a Delta Unisaw 5HP 1Ph RHT saw, so it might not be that useful, but again, its nice having different saws setup for different things. My thought was maybe use this one and build a sliding table top for it. Are you looking for or do you have tips to share regarding the workshop?

How Can You Find The Model Number Of A Delta Table Saw?

Don’t bother posting for recommendations — just get the Forrest WWII and Dado King and be done with it. If your projects are on the small side in general, this combo unit may do you very well. Worst you can do is try it, and if it’s a pain to use , pass it on. Make a nice big crosscut sled, outfeed table, and you’re set. Everything works but the jointer needs new blades and the pull switch thing is missing a holder or something I imagine because it just lays on the floor. This sequence reflected Rockwell’s fiscal year of October through September.

As a result of all that research I went into the auction ready to rumble. Of course we can always use the scrap iron scenario. This should probably be the bottom of the range. At the group level, insights will be shared, information gained, and useful data can be added to the database.

The rip capacity indicates how much space you can have at maximum between the edge of the blade and the edge of the fence. The Internet is a dangerous place to try and find answers and you often end up being more confused. The Fusion looks like a very nice saw and have considered it myself.

Add to that, all the comments on the fence and I think I ll be getting the Delta. The Delta is very easy to move around and took only a couple hours to setup. It was dead on square since the fist cut and I’ve had no alignment issues in over a year. But I found the depth of cut to be 1/4” more on the Delta and I like how letting the saw down off the wheels doesn’t just drop it on the floor from the balcony.

The serial number list is broken down into three parts. Machines built in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Bellefountaine, Ohio had an all-number code. According to the list machines were built in Bellefountaine all the way up to 1976.
