This guy has been sitting out there for almost a month, so I bet you could get it for less even though they claim the price is firm :)

Thanks Brad – indeed I saw that one, which compelled me to research Delta further. He s (?) reasonably close to me, so definitely feasible and worth a look if this is a solid performer.


Anyone familiar with this particular unit?

- David Schwarz

Solid – but you will have to deal with 3 phase. I find it a deal killer – - -others no big deal but I see a lot of the 3HP phase converters running 300 bucks.. so you just need to factor the hassle cost of that into what you want to offer.

I’ll confess that I don’t even know what 3-phase is – I’ll need to look that one up and learn. But I have a good electrician, and the “shop” (actually, my garage now dedicated to woodworking) was just newly wired with a dedicated 100A circuit, so I should be able to “upgrade” as necessary (and I did forewarn the electrician that a 220V circuit could very well become necessary).

So for this saw, what should I look for that cannot be “fixed” with new parts. I can imagine a warped table for me would be a deal breaker, but what else should I “worry” about?
