    The blades for a 12.5 inch delta planner are two sided and are designed to be disposable. Is it possible to buy blades that can be sharpened but are still "easy" to install?

    Hi, I inherited a 1948 Delta Unisaw Serial # 74-5343 that needs a new motor pulley. It appears I need the model number of the saw in order to ID the part however I can't find the number on the saw. Any ideas on where I can find the model number? Thanks.

    I recently acquired an oldie but goodie Delta 6" 37-280 jointer that was never really pushed too hard according to the original owner. After some adjustment of the the in/out feed plates, the cutter knives and fence I fired it up for some tests. Disclaimer* - I've worked in a few woodshops in...

    I'm building out my first shop right now and have been meaning to buy a bandsaw for a while. I came across a CL post today for a 12" Delta for $20. Seems to be in decent condition and I wanted to get your guys opinion on whether it's worth taking a flyer on this thing or if it's just junk. I...

    Newbie here, though been WWkng since the 60's. I recently had to replace the tensioning rod on my Delta BS, now I can't get it to tension properly according to the indicator. Yeah, I know indicators are not very accurate, but it gets me to a starting point. I'm thinking I did something wrong...

    I have a 20 or so year old 10" Delta contractor's saw, #34-444, 52" unifence. It's been adequate and a good workhorse, but I've had problems for years with binding when raising and lowering the saw, and particularly when angling the blade. I usually clean it out, spray some silicone, and deal...

    Hello, this is my first post, thank you for having me. Looking forward to contributing and learning. I recently started the wiring of an older Unisaw and have run into an issue with the switch. I cant seem to make head or tails of it but, in the end need to get it wired. Any help would be...

    I'm restoring a floor model Rockwell drill press model 1124 which i am pretty sure its almost identical to the 15-081. This was a barnyard machine. Covered in grime and rust, and not taken care of well, at all. The table was broken and bolted to a janky weld up job, among other half-a**...

    I am looking for a kind soul who owns a Delta Saw with a model# 62-044 motor. I purchased a used saw with this motor, and found that it had one of the capacitors blown. I used the capacitor model # to order a replacement, and it worked for several minutes until it went "pop" and blew the new...

    I have a Delta contractor saw which I bought back in 2002 or so. I ground the tip of my finger off with it a few months ago and decided to invest in a SawStop. I have a buyer interested in the old Delta but I'm not sure what its worth. Any suggestions? -32" Biesemeyer Fence -1.75 hp / 115v...

    Hi all. I am looking for advice on a new (to me) table saw that will be my first stationary saw in my shop (garage). I am looking to buy used from CL and have been looking at a few models such as the ridgid R4512 (shying away due to the alignment issues with the weak trunnions). I am looking to...

    I've been looking to upgrade from an old Harbor Freight 10" miter that has way outlived its purpose and was looking at all of the latest and greatest miter saws out there. Originally I was leaning towards the Dewalt 780 as it seems to be one of the best reviewed for the price (Kapex is out of...

    Hi, I'm new here, and am hoping someone can give me some help. My Father in law passed away, and one of the things he left me was his very old table saw. It is small and works fine and served him well for many many years, but is missing the miter gauge. After going through everything in the...

    I received this lathe last week as a gift. I am super excited about this but i'm having trouble identifying the model/specs. The serial number is 53-7452. Everything except a couple of handles on the tail stock are functional. Once I can identify it I can start order or fabricating parts for...

    I picked up this Delta Milwaukee bandsaw today, my first and only bandsaw, and have a couple of questions. In the 3rd image you see the gap between the cover plate and the body? Is that natural? Dust escape? The 4th image is the plug for the motor. Wtf is up with that, what I assume is some...

    Hey everyone, I picked up an *old* Unisaw over the weekend. Serial number dates it back to 1948. When I took it off the trailer, I found a part sitting on the moving blanket. The problem is that I don’t have a clue where it goes. I have looked through the part diagram, but it lacks the...

    I have a Delta TS300 that the fence assembly was lost during a move. Every site I check says the part is no long available. What do you suggest? Is there another one that is captable? I hate the idea of having to toss the saw. Is there some kind of cross reference for parts that I can check?

    I have an 8-year old Unisaw with a 3hp motor. I notice excessive vibration in the blade. The saw is on a slab, and level. I know the bearings are sealed for a lifetime. So--any suggestions on how to minimize this vibration?

    Hi all, I have a Delta 36-600 10" table saw. It uses a notched belt ("timing belt") with matching teeth on the drive shaft so it cannot slip. When this saw starts up it comes to full speed in about 1/2 second. The inertia of the arbor and blade puts a huge strain on the belt (and other...
