I have the same saw, at least it looks just like that. I believe mine is in the 60 to 70 year old vintage. It was my Dad’s. Still works great. Check out Vintagemachinery.org, there’s a lot of good people and info on your saw, if you have any numbers on it will help.

Just took a look it looks just like the one I have there is hope, I have wheels bolted to the saw so it move around when you cut came that way what system do you have on yours, it looks like it is stable?

You also can find lots of information on the http://www.deltaportercable.com/ServiceAndSupport/ServiceAndSupport.aspx. They even have operation and owners manuals for a lot of the older models like this. I have a similar one, but not quite as old. Mine is about 25-30 years old.

I have the same saw…I called Delta and gave them the serial number and they told me the exact month it rolled off the line (October 1945!)

I was given a similar saw. I sprayed all the bolts with PB Blaster every day for a week and worked them loose, new tires and guides , 6” riser kit , great saw!

I hope you don’t mind but I rotated you picture and now can look at it without straining my neck.

Thanks to every one. We have a giant sale at work and just pulled two twelve hour days and have to drive 1 1/4 hr each way. The Box on the side of the saw is my version of a duct collector, It slides over the rails, has a small gap on the under neath side that when I attach the dust collector hose it pulls a good deal of air threw , I made some baffles on the inside to help with the flow, It is made out of a card board box ( it was a proto-type that worked so well I painted black and put it back on)Thanks for all the great sites to look for part and turning the pic upright need to figure that one out
