- Delta 36-L31X-BC50 3-Horsepower Left Tilt Unisaw with Biesemeyer Fence
- Brand: Delta | Category: Tablesaws
After using a Delta contractor saw for about 9 years I finally moved to my new shop with the room
for a full size saw.
I bought this saw while my shop was being built. Amazon had mis-priced this saw so I jumped on it and got it
for $1340 delivered. Plus a $100 rebate from Delta. The next day Amazon bumped the price up to $1900.
What can you saw about the Unisaw. They started making them about 1937 and most all saws made today
are based on it. You can probably still get parts for your 60 year old saw!
My saw passed the standing nickel test with no problem. It has all the power I would ever need. It’s nice
and heavy and I say that it’s virtually impossible to tip over.
The left tilt is great. When cutting bevels the cutoff falls away from the blade. I made the transition from
my right tilt contractors saw with no problem at all.
The Biesemeyer fence is fantastic and rock solid. That’s probably Delta why bought the company. I do like
some of the features of their Unifence and I would like both, but I don’t know if I could swap them back
Comes with a 5 YEAR warranty which is one of the longest I have heard of.
It comes with a 3HP single phase 230 volt motor, cast iron top and extensions. It also comes with a blade
that was so good that I left it on the saw even though I had a brand new Forrest blade.
I am very happy with it and wouldn’t get anything else.
