Google Delta and give technician the model number. They can telll you almost anything you want to know about it. I am quite sure you can still order parts for it.

I worked for Delta for a number of years as a reconditioning tech. I’ve gone through my old service manuals and cannot find the model number you posted( Table saws are generally identified as 34-XXX, or 36-XXX) My manuals go back to the ‘50s. Is there a chance you’ve misread the model number? Or read the number off of the motor, or an accessory? I agree that a picture or two would be helpful. Another resource for you might be the folks at old woodwoorking machines(OWWM) dot com, or org I believe the .org is open to all, the .com is limited to registered members. Either way let us know what comes of it…you’ve got my curious bone twitching.

Wayne, after some sluething, and a little blowup of your spec plate photo, I(could well be wrong) think that you have a model 34-4510” tilting arbor saw(predecessor to the uni). My prints show a box type motor cover rather that the goose egg yours requires, but other than that everything matches. I am looking at a revision dated 1985, which is far later than your saw, so some discrepancies are likely. I would be more than happy to scan the material I have( parts breakdown, and part number lists, with sparse service notes ) Dewalt Servicenet will be almost useless in this effort( I looked). They’ve carked up the service system for older units so badly that some recent models are un-searchable.

According to some (very little) research I did, Rockwell began Canadian operations in 1953 by purchasing Beaver Tools. I started working for Delta shortly after Pentair purchased the Delta label from Rockwell in the early ‘80s. The actual date of manufacture is encoded in the serial number, but I have never learned(don’t have the decoder ring) to decipher their s.n. s. Judging by the oval motor cover hole(that cover is gonna be a bear to find) I would estimate pre-1960, but I could be wrong. With the correct model number in hand, and the SN, the ‘old Arn guys” at OWWM can probably give you a month and year quite easily. They’re pretty good at sniffing out stuff like that.
Good luck!
