Looking at a Delta Unisaw w/ sliding table and 52” rail exrtenion. 230V single phase, looks in good condition. Not familiar with the saw, currently have a Dewalt DW746 hybrid. Is 850.00 a good price for the saw. Looks to be an older model

Do you know the model number or a picture which give us an ideal of the age?

If It’s in good shape, has a 3 hp motor and a un-ifience and I was in the market for a saw I’d buy it in a heart beat. I’m in the camp that says the Un-fence is the most desirable fence for cabinet type saws, I’ll take it over even a Incra fence.

I had practically that exact saw(slightly later model), and in good shape it’s easily worth $850….it might be gone by now. From the model number I’m guessing it’s a 1980s or later model…not that old.

If not used in a commercial or cabinet shop and is 220 it would be fine…

expect it to need motor and arbor bearings but it’s likely worth at least 850 – especially if it’s got the unifence

If it needs a motor and hasn’t been used in a manufactures background I wouldn’t buy it.

Pete, have you been able to see the saw in person?

Where I live, I figure my left tilt Delta cabinet saw is worth what I paid for it over ten years ago, which is around $1,500.00. It includes a Merlin splitter, Excalibur over arm and a Fox kick up/down table. Those three things would be in the category of swapping for your slider addition.

In short, enjoy your new machine. You’re going to love that slider.

Shouldn’t need a motor… but the bearings are almost certainly shot. Anyone buying a saw 20yrs old + should expect to replace the arbor and motor bearings – just comes w/ the territory

I understand what your saying but mines 20 years old and runs l like new. If it’s been ran a lot it’s came out of a business and not a hobby shop…

There are two saws at jacobe furniture a powermatic 66 3 phase and delta unisaw single phase for around $500 , and neither have any problems…so I wouldn’t pay $800+ plus if it requires a lot of work like a motor.

But I understand that your location may offer less for more money..
