OK, this is interesting. I went looking for a manual for a model 52-965 and came up empty. Went to Delta’s parts web site and it referenced models 28-203 and a model 28-280. The 203 is an open stand model and the 280 is the closed stand. The model 52-965 number is apparently on the stand and I’m still not sure if that’s the stand itself or what, but I got the manual for the 28-280 and it appears to be this exact saw AND on the closed stand.

Doesn’t say how to remove the table, but I can’t see that being real hard to figure out.

I want to see how the motor controls and wiring are routed through the base. Doesn’t look like the base itself has much weight. It’s kinda looking like if I take the drive belt off, and unbolt the on/off switch from the saw body, I’d be able to take out 4 bolts to separate the saw from the base. If that’s the case, this could be fairly easy to break down and reassemble and nobody gets hurt :)
