Wondering where to get parts for this? Everything works but the jointer needs new blades and the pull switch thing is missing a holder or something I imagine because it just lays on the floor.

Any idea what something like this is worth?

I had just bought a new ts3650 table saw that had been sitting in a garage in the box for years, but I think I might just sell it and use this delta. I kind of like the classic feel, aside from the entire thing tilting to make a bevel cut which blew my mind, but otherwise I think it’s awesome.
Or I could keep the ridgid table saw and buy a free standing jointer.

If you have the room keep both and setup one as a dado saw.

The parts have a very ShopSmith-y look to them.
Is it actually a Delta machine?

There was one not far from me a couple of years ago that was for sale for $150. I think the real value may be in finding the right buyer, but there are quite a few of them over at OWWM. Blades won’t be hard to find for the jointer…you could ask about the switch over at OWWM. The one in the link looks like it just has a handy box holding a light switch. those machines are really cool; good luck with whatever you decide.

That looks terrifying. I don’t think I’d use it.

Looks like everything would be far too small to be useful for a wide variety of projects. Can’t say without looking at it, but I’ll bet it’s got a sad little motor on it. That fence looks like a frustrating little thing, too.

I’d keep the TS 3650 any day. Make a nice big crosscut sled, outfeed table, and you’re set.

I probably uses an 8” blade, that will be somewhat limiting depending on the type of work that you do. I’m sure you could find new blades for the jointer.

Looks cool!

I’d guess 6” blades for the jointer, but a measurement is easy to make to be sure.

If your projects are on the small side in general, this combo unit may do you very well. Worst you can do is try it, and if it’s a pain to use (or feels unsafe), pass it on.

It’s definitely a delta, both saw and jointer are branded I just can’t find a model number or something to look it up for parts.
It has a 10” blade and 6 1/2” jointer.
Motor seems powerful enough, it’s weird because it runs both simultaneously, but I ripped a 3/4-1” thick piece of oak no problem

Maybe its just me but I think it looks super cool, here is an article on one that gives some model numbers that may get you pointed in the right direction.
also, they look even cooler fully restored.

Have your say...
