Product Description

Buying your first table saw is tough. So many things to consider: You want power, so you don't bog down in tough cuts; accuracy, no matter what you're doing, and safety, because no one wants to get hurt. As a woodworker's first table saw, this one's got some great advantages, but it does have what some would consider being minuses as well. On the plus side, the 15-amp motor provides plenty of power for sawing through the toughest hardwood you've got without whining or stalling. The table's a nice size at 22-1/4-by-38-3/8-inches—-that's big enough for most stock stability, but it's still small enough for the home workshop or as a jobsite saw. The table's made of cast iron, so you feel less vibration, and with a coat of floor paste wax on it, it's smooth as glass. As you get farther into woodworking, you'll find you'll want to attach an auxiliary fence, and this fence comes with predrilled holes to make that a little easier. The miter gauge rides in a T-slot, always preferable to a plain slot, mostly because the gauge won't tip out when you've reached the balance point off the front of the table. Now, on the minus side, the thing we dislike about this saw is Delta's placement of the power switch on the right side of the front of the saw, requiring you to reach in front of the blade. Now, this might not be such a big deal if the blade guard were better. As it is, it's awkward and tough to keep adjusted, so it's tempting to toss it aside, and without the anti-kickback pawls to do their job, you're risking injury by reaching in front of the blade to turn off the saw. That said, if you need to stay in this price range, it's a lot of saw for the money and as long as safety is a priority, a woodworker can make this saw do beautiful things.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

I bought this saw, when I convinced my wife that I'd need it to build a fence. Little did I know how much I would end up using it for that project.
We ended up ripping just over 450 2x4's to be used as the stiles in the fence. That project alone was worth the price of this saw.
For each of the 8 foot cross members that the stiles attached to, I chose to add a 15 degree bevel to the top edge (so water wouldn't pool on it). 104 of the bevel cuts later, I'm starting to have feelings for this saw.
Then to top it all off (and the fence posts) Each of the 32 6x6 posts needed a cap. An 8"x8" piece of 2 inch thick stock cut at a bevel to form a very substantial Mission style finish to each of the posts.
If this were the only project I was going to use it for, I could throw a cover on the saw and know that I've gotten my money's worth already...but I think that the fun's just beginning.
Is it the last saw I'll buy? Probably not. If I find I need something with more accuracy then I might have to upgrade to a stronger cabinet saw, but for an introduction to a table saw, this is the one to buy.
Oh, add a mobile base from the start and you'll be much happier, especially if you have to share your garage with a car, and the rest of your tool collection. It makes dragging it out of the way, that much easier.

I have used this saw for three years as part of my hobby building furniture. When I bought it, I expected that I would use it for the occassional project only but have ended up using it much more than I ever thought I would as my woodworking hobby has blossomed. The decision to buy it seemed a good one at the time; I just wish now I had spent the money to begin with for a high quality saw and been done with it. But hindsight is always 20-20.
Good points. It is relatively light and can be moved around fairly easily. The fence is repeatable and accurate enough for woodworking. The saw is fully enclosed so dust collection is easier to implement than on a regular contractor's saw. The T-square fence easily allows for jigs to be put over it.
Bad points. The universal motor is ear deafening, wake the neighbors LOUD. The thing vibrates quite a bit and adjustments have to be locked in tight. The fence at its fullest extension flexes especially when trying to rip heavy sheet goods which can be very dangerous. Lacks power for thick stock; had great difficulty cutting 2x4 pine on a 45 with this saw and a fairly sharp blade. I have a fairly large amount of runout (in the 1/64" - 1/32" range just looking at it by eye). The miter guage, the blade guard and kickback cauls all are a terrible design (but this is true of all standard equipment on saws so not really a fair complaint). The fence is exactly one degree off of perfectly square to the tablesaw top and has been since I bought it (I never considered it enough of a problem to bother Delta about).
Unless you know you are only going to have occassional use of the saw, buy up the line a bit. I bought it on that premise, but my needs have changed. I have used other saws that are truly a joy to use and behold since they have a very solid feel about them and are relatively quiet. This one is not one of them. Two hundred more dollars buys a LOT more saw.

I do a lot of woodwork. I had a little contractor's saw (the kind you can easily carry to and from a truck), and needed more. There were a few good saws, but they were just another contractor's saw...then I saw this one in a Home Depot. For about the price of a contractor's saw you get soooo much more. The fence stays square and accurate, the fence gauge (that measures the distance between blade and fence) is accurate to 1/32 of an inch. When you stick with "thin kerf" saw blades the motor's lack of power (when compaired to cabinet saws) never becomes a problem, even with oak and maple. HOWEVER, it is important to note that this thing is heavy and not easy to lug around. If you want to use it on a construction sight, there are other saws that would be better, BUT if you want to have a cabinet saw and don't want to spend the money for one....here is what you're looking for. I love mine.

This was the first woodworking machine that I ever bought. I had previously owned many hand-held power tools, but when I decided I wanted to get more serious about pursuing a hobby in woodworking, this was my first purchase. It is a quality machine, and the fit and finish are good right out of the box. The fence design and accuracy are excellent. For the first couple of years, all I ever did with this saw was rip thin stock (1" thick or less). As I acquired more tools, I was able to buy rough stock in greater thicknesses to plane and dress at home. As my furniture making became more sophisticated, I began to encounter situations where I needed to rip 2" or 3" hardwood slabs (for legs and such). This is where I outgrew this saw. Although it will make a valiant attempt at it, ripping 3" thick slabs of oak bogs this saw down to the point of non-performance.
If all you ever plan to do is putter around the garage and do home improvement stuff, this is the saw for you. However, if you plan on eventually building furniture and other, more demanding projects, then spend more money on a more powerful saw.
