Topic tags/keywords: delta table saw parts

Hello,

I picked up a delta 36-725 table saw that is basically new, but missing the side rails, sliding tubes, and some other parts pertaining to the rails and wings.

If anyone knows of, or has, a broken saw that they are parting out, please let me know.

The box tube and rails are standard size and can be purchased from a steel supplier to make them.

My dad was just looking at my saw and the parts diagram and said he thought I could have parts made for it. My friend owns a fab shape so I might see what he can do. Thank you for the reply.

Here’s what I am working with.
This is my first table saw, so I am not fully aware of what I am missing, other than side rails, sliding tube, and fence handle.

I hope you got a really good deal on that saw.

You might try searching on Craigslist for table saw fences. I’m not sure but I think the hole patterns are fairly standard except for Craftsman. Aftermarket fences are a thing.

Home Depot offers the whole fence system for $219 and it’s even better than the factory system because it appears to use a single rail rather than the split rail that creates a slight discontinuity near the blade.

Yes, you can probably build your own from standard angle iron and 2X2 tube. You will need some screws/bolts with special heads and the ability to countersink some of the holes in the front rail so the bolt heads end up flush with the surface of the angle iron. Otherwise there will not be enough clearance between the rail and the tube for the fence to slide.

Take a good look at the fence on the display model at Lowes.

YouTube has videos of people building their own fence system from wood. Of course, you’d probably need a working table saw first.

While it’s possible for you to buy and install a new fence, or cobble together the parts to get it working – given that you have never owned a saw and your apparent lack of knowledge, I suggest you sell that saw for what you paid or slightly more and purchase one that is complete.

Cheers,
Brad

Unfortunately, Lowe’s stopped selling it so I can’t find a display for comparison (I’ve checked out a couple in my area and emailed Lowe’s to no avail).

So that fence system from Home Depot would work with some angle iron side rails?

The saw was a display model at Lowe’s that was marked down to $100. I was looking at it trying to figure out what it would take to get it working and the manager walked by and said ‘I want that thing gone, it’s yours for $20’. Figured it was worth $20 regardless of what it was missing and threw it in my truck.

But not sure what it was missing parts, unless it was a return. Maybe someone wanted the fence and rail system, bought it, then claimed it was missing parts and returned it (doing that crossed my mind, but my morals got in the way)?

That thought did cross my mind, as it would be better to find a decent used saw that is complete for $400 rather than spend $400 on this one and hope I did it right.

The Delta fence system linked above will fit the 36-725. It comes with the angle iron side rails that support the wings. Look at the picture, 1 fence, 2 angle rails and 1 box rail.

ToolBarn appears to have it. https://www.toolbarn.com/delta-36-t30t3.html/?gclid=Cj0KCQiAv8PyBRDMARIsAFo4wK3TjMlAji4_nEVOY-UkrRrWxRo-zdXeQo5Ngm7WhhK6ZwiiuKmTtXkaAk-rEALw_wcB

Just placed my order there. Got my confirmation email just as the email from lumberjocks regarding your response came in. Looks like I might still need side rails, but it might be fuctional with out them(?). Either way, your suggestion got me closer to operational, so thank you.

I have the 36-725 and not sure what you mean by side rails. Are you talking about the bar that goes between the front and back rails on the right end?

Yes, I was talking about that piece, but also l, due to there being holes in the side tables/wings, I thought there were additional pieces that ran between the other rails. Turns out there is not.
