It certainly looks liek a delta clone 37-220 would be the delta model. Besides checking the blades, and hearing it run make sure you can remove the screws that hold the blade in, and if you have a good long straight edge make sure the tables are flat. A table way out of whack is a deal breaker. Unplug it and spin the cutter head by hand listening to the bearings. Theyre cheap enough but no harm in checkin it out.
