Rockwell = Delta – they are one and the same, and the Delta 14” saw is the original – it is what all of the other 14” cast iron saws are clones of, including that HF one you have – although the HF is cheapened significantly in many ways.

If nothing is missing or broken, then you are looking at maybe another $100 tops for new bearings, tires, a belt and a blade or two. However, that is a newer machine, so it may not need anything – would have to look at it in person. Leave the HSS guide blocks alone – any ‘upgrade’ is a waste of money IMO.
