The price of that Delta is pretty high considering that it offers traditional table mounted trunnions, old style connecting rods, and no riving knife. I think I’d consider something like the GI 50-240GT, Steel City, Craftsman 22116, Grizzly G0661, G0715P or Jet Proshop, or even a closeout on the Cman 22124 before spending that kind of money on the outdated Delta….all have mechanical advantages over the Delta design, whether cabinet mounted trunnions, a single piece cast arbor carriages, riving knife, or all three.
