I bought this back in December thinking it would be a good replacement since I did not have the factory splitter on my saw. The thought was lets make it safer until I buy my new saw.
I had read many mixed reviews on the splitter and figured that maybe the bad reviews had to do with how people had been installing the splitter. It is just like any other splitter that you find on the uni-saw and the later contractor saws that have been discontinued.
I got it home unboxed it, removed the old splitter bracket and installed the bracket for the new one. Simple enough, its held in with two cap screws. Put the splitter in the holder and it rocks back and forth. OK this isn’t right. I email Tools-Plus where I bought it from to find out if I could just UPS it back instead of driving over to return it. I get a reply from them saying to call Delta that the Delta rep told them that it had to go thru Delta. I call Delta and the tech says to me that it’s not supposed to have play and that the merchant has to replace it.
I call the merchant and speak to the person who emailed me and explained to them what is going on and they sent me an RMA 5 days later. In the mean time I have written an email to Delta telling them the situation and that I was unhappy with the product and that I was in the market for a new saw but if this was any indication as to the build I would look elsewhere. A Delta rep calls and says they will send me a new splitter but they have to locate it in the warehouse. It is now Christmas and I hear from no one. I call them back and after New Years and am told that the person that would know where the item is was on vacation. We have gone back and forth 3 more times and nothing.
So my rating is 0 for the splitter, -1 for Delta and a 4 for Tools-Plus.
