    FS: Delta Unisaw or Contractor Saw Wings

    I have a pair of 1967 Unisaw wings that I no longer need. I used them to great effect on my delta contractor saw (the extra weight was a big help), but I recently sold it and the buyer wanted the stamped steel wings for a lower price. Asking $200 which is basically what I paid for them awhile...

    Contractor saw alignment

    I second PALS! I have them on the contractor saw that I am now selling and they made adjustments so much easier! I also talked to the guy over at In-Line industries (the maker of the PALS) and he suggested replacing the pulleys and belts as well. They worked well for me and if anyone has a...

    FS: Delta Contractor Table Saw - sold

    @BKHam I know what you mean! They are pretty expensive (not to mention shipping) to get on eBay so I was lucky to get a matched set. They definitely made a big difference on the saw. If someone ends up buying the saw and offers me less without the wings, I will keep you in mind :)

    Bow saw

    Just in case anyone looks up this thread later. I have the 10-24-23 version of the bahco listed above with a wet wood blade and it is a great saw. For medium size logs I could get through them faster than my neighbor could setup and cut with his small, underpowered chain saw...

    FS: Delta Contractor Table Saw - sold

    USA made Delta 34-444 from the early 90s. It has quite a few very useful upgrades including cast iron wings (from a unisaw), an upgraded fence, upgrades pulleys, Contract Saw PALS, a leecraft plate with splitters, and upgraded switch. Full Stats below the pictures. I also have the old stamped...

    Sherwin-Williams Sherwood pre-cat lacquer

    I used it last year in my Earlex HV5500 to paint a dresser for my daughter and it worked great. I just thinned it until it passed the cup test and I was good to go.

    This was a nice chart I found in an article about coronavirus. It was also entertaining to see all of the names for different styles!

    For Sale Rockwell 8" Jointer

    I picked up an 8in 1950s Art Deco delta jointer a few months back that I am restoring. It is very similar to this one. (but a lot more rust :) ) I only had a Honda Fit to get it home, but I found that mine could be taken apart quite easily. Your base seems a bit more put together than mine, but...

    Wanted: Instructions for a Delta 50-389 (extension wings for the Delta 31-250 drum sander)

    @Bill Clemmons Thanks Bill, but I must be missing something. I see the manual for the drum sander itself (which I have), but not the manual for the extension wings.

    Wanted: Instructions for a Delta 50-389 (extension wings for the Delta 31-250 drum sander)

    I purchased the extension wings (Delta 50-389) for my Delta 31-250 18-36 drum sander off of eBay and while it was listed as new in box, it did not have the instructions. If anyone has the instructions I would be happy to pay a reasonable price for them or would love to borrow them for a few...

    Wanted - 1.5 HP Motor for Delta 8in Jointer Restoration - Found

    Thanks everyone! Someone on the site sent me a PM and had a motor that matched the specs I was looking for. I might try something different in the future (and there were lots of great suggestions!), but for now, I think I will just use this motor with an identically sized new pulley with a 5/8...

    Wanted - 1.5 HP Motor for Delta 8in Jointer Restoration - Found

    @Oka Thanks for the clarification! If I decide to keep the old motor I will go down that route! I am just not sure it is worth going to 220 for 1.5HP. If I go to 220 and my Jointer can handle it, I might go to 2HP.

    Wanted - 1.5 HP Motor for Delta 8in Jointer Restoration - Found

    @Alan in Little Washington Thanks for the great write up. From what I understand looking at the old catalogs and, in the 50s Delta did ship their jointers with 1725 RPM motors. As you suspected, the pulley on the cutterhead is 1.5-2 in (I would need to go out and measure) and the...

    Wanted - 1.5 HP Motor for Delta 8in Jointer Restoration - Found

    @Oka I think it can be inverted to phase 1, but I read that I would lose 1/3 of the horsepower. I figured I might as well just get a 1PH motor so I did not go down to 1HP. @Pop Golden I did look into a HF motor but given all of the work it will take to restore the jointer, I wanted to stick...

    Wanted - 1.5 HP Motor for Delta 8in Jointer Restoration - Found

    I was able to grab an 8in Delta jointer to restore, but unfortunately (for me) it came with a 3 Phase motor. I was wondering if anyone had a 1.5 HP 1PH 1725RPM motor (the ideal would be TEFC and with manual protector) that they would be willing to sell or trade? The motor that came with it is...
