Because Delta was sold in 2011 to the overseas company Chang Type Industrial. Co. And before that, Black and Decker decimated their parts stock after receiving a 20 year supply from Pentair (who themselves destroyed most of the castings and parts drawings after producing said 20 year supply).

In many cases, it is much easier to find parts for a 50 year old machine than it is for one made two years ago. And Delta is not the only company with the same issue.

Cheers,
Brad
