wings be bought separately ? Also do you think it would be worth the $$$ over the stamped wings that's there now?

Last time I checked, they were about $100 each. I am looking for a couple myself, old used ones will be fine, but they need to be near me...shipping'll kill ya!
Check at www dot dewaltservicenet dot com for current price and availability The current wings will work on almost any Delta saw, except for the aluminum benchtops(I think)
And if you dont plan to move the saw around a lot, the CI wings are a definite plus. If you are using the saw as a jobsite saw, no They weigh in at about 40 pounds each.

Hey John,
Does your saw look something like this one? Mine is about 30 years old. There is nothing wrong with the stamped wings. Get a link belt to smooth things out and it will cut fine if everything else is in tune.

Yep except for the fence

I'll get a pic tomorrow and post it. Except for the fence, belt and a lot of labor. It had been outside for 6 months. BTW It was free.

I agree with this.

My 25+ year old saw has stamped wings and they never concern me at all. The wings have no effect on the cutting qulity.

Do you have a splitter on there too or just a guard? The table looks much like my saw from the 30's and if there is a splitter that can be fitted to it I would be interested.

Scotty,
The blade guard has a splitter built in. You may want to check with your local or closest delta repair center. The last time I was at a tool show at Hartville Hardware, the rep had a catalog that showed aftermarket riving knives to fit the older saws.

I picked up the blade guard....

at a flea market. If the rails for the fence wasn't there it would work great. It has a splitter too...
