Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Because needed parts are unavailable for my old Delta Rockwell 34-600 TS, it is being replaced (the 10” PC PCB27OTS at Lowe’s is the current contender), I thought to part out the old saw. (The threads on the backing plate and the hand knob for the fence are stripped.) If anybody still has one of these saws & needs a part, please contact me. No charge but you would pay shipping, of course.

The Delta TS is partnered with a Delta 4” 37-290 jointer & uses the same motor (pulleys at both ends) so I am toying with the idea of figuring out how to retain the jointer function and mount another tool, perhaps as the miter saw. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a little over a year ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…


-- New Project = New Tool... it's just the way it is, don't fight it... :)

Have your say...
