Below is a copy of an email i just got a few moments ago conerning Delta unisaws. I just wanted to post this and say in regards:
I use to like Delta, and probably most of us who have watched Norm. I bought my tablesaw from delta, and later on i bought a 14” floor model bandsaw. The bandsaws quality is very cheap. A mere few moments of inspection wil not tax the mind to figure out its made in Tiawan. So, my instant thought when i got this email was: It figures! And: I wonder whats happening to those people in Tenn. who have served Delta all these years. I guess there will surely be job cuts.
I dont really care to ever buy another delta tool personally, they’ve been selling out America for the last few years anyway under a “thin vail of promotionalism that says American made.” Just my point of view. Again, you can read the email below.
