AFAIK, Delta only made one 20” model 28-350 –

There are 4 distinct variations of the 28-350, there is a A, B, C and D version. The general saw appears the same. Honestly unless one needs to replace the guides (there are 3 variations of how the guides attach) the variation makes no difference. You can determine the the version by dating the saw, the 28-350 was actually built prior to 1950 and those will have a A at the end of the serial number, the have the one potential big difference in that some fo the A series were made with CI wheels instead of AL. I have had maybe a dozen through the shop over the years the only time I paid attention to the variation was as I said changing guides. I have a soft spot for the saw since despite the Powermatic 81 being the better of the light duty steel spined 20” saws of the era the Delta just looks better and I just plain don’t like the Yates J-line saws.
