Thanks for the tips! I would say that it is the same or nearly the same machine. Owner thinks it about an '02 and it looks identical to the saw the original poster shows here.
Spotted another saw...
"Delta 10" Contractor's Saw, good condition, 1-1/2 HP, 115/230V, $200. Says it's identical to the one the other guy listed for $350"
I'm going to call for more details on that this morning.
If it's an '02, the model number will have a "315" prefix....315.######, made by TTI/Ryobi between 1997 and 2004. If it's a 113.######, it's made by Emerson prior to 1997....made in the US. Either are fine at the right price.
$350 for a good full size Delta saw in good shape with a decent fence could be a reasonable deal, but some pics and/or model # would help. Things like upgraded fence, cast iron wings, mobile base, good blades, dados, etc., all add some value. If it's stripped with steel wings, and a stock fence, and nothing else included, $350 is likely more than I'd want to go, but it really depends on age, condition, etc.
On the flip side of the coin...not wanting to pay $350 for a used stripped contractor saw is the bargain hunter in me. We've all read of many other "great" deals on more saw for less, but if you need a saw, and don't want to or can't spend more than $350, it doesn't mean these saws are bad deals...those great deals don't happen every time. Both of these saws are capable of good work (and ripping 2x 6's) if set up correctly and run with the correct blade, so there is a "bird in hand" aspect to consider. It really depends on your sitation. You'll know when the right one rolls along.
