I can only speak to the delta – I bought one brand spanking new just over a year ago and I absolutely love it and am glad I jumped in with both feet.

Previously I had a craftsman and while it did fine for the 10 years I owned it, I never really did a lot of work on it – a few cuts here and there, plus it was portable so I could take it to a few jobs I had gotten over the years

I never really got the craftsman aligned or setup properly since I didn’t know you had to do that and when I did learn how, it was a real chore to do.

The delta however, not being portable I use almost daily – I’m not nearly as squeamish about setting it up, aligning it and the fence and etc is a real ease to work with.

I looked at the grizzly as well as the delta unisaw (both cabinet saws) and for me having a small shop the 36-725 made the most sense not only for it’s size but also for the cost – I got mine at Lowes and got 10% off + 5% off and that also helped to sway me towards the delta

Either way, best of luck with your choice – I don’t think you can make a terrible decision wth any of those saws

-- They said I could be anything... So I became Sarcastic! They also said making drawers is easy... I think they lied :(
