A must for Delta portable planers

A must for Delta portable planers

08-17-2011 04:11 AM by Kevin | 13 comments »

Not going to go into great detail here on this review. Ordered one from amazon.com yesterday and it arrived this morning. Replacing the original shroud with this one was a brease, took about 1 minute if that. I did however drill two holes in the bottom left/right of the shroud and into the planer to make it more sturdy. Hooked up a 6.5hp shop vac to it and planed some boards. Taking 1/16 – 1/8 off each pass the shop vac didn’t leave any chips/dust behind. For $25 dollars...

Review of DELTA X5 6" Professional Jointer

Review of DELTA X5 6" Professional Jointer

07-25-2011 09:40 PM by Delta356 | 12 comments »

After my little Craftsman 4” jointer died, circ 1951, I decided to up grade. I looked at a lot of brands and me being a big Delta fan I decided to go with there DeltaX5 6” professional jointer.This machine comes in two boxes one contains the motor/stand, and other goodies. The other box has the jointer and fence system. Once again I have to deal with a heavy Delta box. The machine took about an hour to put together.. One thing that is nice is Delta already mounts the motor, and t...

Review of Delta 14" Bandsaw, Sawing with a Delta

Review of Delta 14" Bandsaw, Sawing with a Delta

07-25-2011 08:35 PM by Delta356 | 19 comments »

When it came to buying a new bandsaw, I really took my time on which one I wanted. I looked at all the main brands, and compared the difference. There were really not very many difference. They all cut wood…I ended up going with the brand that pioneered the 14” bandsaw, Delta Machinery. I bought this bad boy at Rockler when they had there 15% of Delta tools. The Bandsaw comes in one big box, and it weighs a lot. The way the box was shaped it was very hard for two people to h...

What an upgrade for an old Craftsman TS

What an upgrade for an old Craftsman TS

06-23-2011 03:47 PM by brtech | 9 comments »

I’ve got an older (Emerson) Craftsman TS (113.298240). The stock fence is a joke, but I’ve made do. I finally decided to do something about it, and a T2 was it. Got it at Tools-Plus for $148 + 6.50 shipping. It came pretty well packed via UPS. The box was a bit caved in, but the parts were fine. Excellent manual, very clear, real English. The fence is made in Taiwan. Fit and finish appear to be excellent. There are two ways to mount the fence to this TS. One is to dril...

Delta 31-260x Drum Sander Review

Delta 31-260x Drum Sander Review

Delta Drum Sander 31-260x Video Review on youtube Part 1 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koEMTEoB2rA Part 2 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLfVV_1LDes&feature=related Disclaimer I would rather of not chosen something like the Delta drum sander, but finding a used commercial unit that I liked had been a battle over the past year. To be honest, I really did not want a sander with only a 1-1/2 HP motor although width was not an issue here. I wanted something like a 5 HP 26” ...

my review of the new unisaw

my review of the new unisaw

03-06-2011 04:27 AM by sawdustphill | 7 comments »

Extes- express delivered my new 3hp unisaw on march first. It came in five boxes. when I opened the bigbox I noticed I didn’t get the black folder they advertise my manuals were in a plastic bag, I don’t know whatsup with that And the wrench did not have the soft grip on it, I think delta is trying to cheapen up. But on a posative note the drawer was metal with full extension drawer slides, not the cheap mdf I saw on the one they had at woodcraft in Lexington, Ky. The throat open...

Delta 22-590 13" planer

Delta 22-590 13" planer

02-11-2011 10:21 PM by ic3ss | 10 comments »

It seems this is the first LJ review of the new Delta 22-590 planer. Delta released this last summer, I believe, and I’ve only found a few reviews by people who’ve actually used the thing. Most of them on the web are just copy-and-paste of someone elses’ review. I wanted to save some money and buy a used planer, and after wasting my time and a lot of gas on a Craigslist deal-gone-bad for a used 22-580, I decided to buy new. This is the 22-590, it’s the update to the 22...

Finest out of the box machine I've ever owned.

Finest out of the box machine I've ever owned.

01-31-2011 12:56 AM by Dedvw | 10 comments »

As soon as I opened the box, I could tell Delta really put forth an effort to release a quality product. Much more Styrofoam than I am use to, making the box for this unit is very big. Everything was very well organized and in very good condition. Fit and finish was the best I have seen on a sub 1000.00 piece of equipment. Everything took about 20 minutes to assemble (including removing it from the box). Assembly consisted of placing the Live Center and Spur Center in the lathe and setting...

Delta Q3 40-650 Scroll Saw

Delta Q3 40-650 Scroll Saw

01-30-2011 06:51 AM by gbrown4 | 2 comments »

I recently acquired this Q3 scroll saw from Craig’s list. I was able to barter for it, amazon.com gift card trade. The seller acquired it from her father who recently passed away. The seller had no clue what it was so she was eager to trade for it. First off I notice it was missing the off/on switch and knob. It was rusty and dirty. I found a switch for $2.50 and replace the bent screws on the quick set blade clamp both upper and lower. I cleaned up the surface rust and wiped eve...

Delta 14-651--Looks Good

Delta 14-651--Looks Good

12-28-2010 08:55 PM by Geedubs | 4 comments »

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Clause…or at least a facsimile of him. Like many, I used to ogle the mortising machine Norm would use on New Yankee Workshop and say (to myself of course), ‘Yah, right, like I’ll ever have a machine like that!”. Well, thanks to some unexpected events, I recently found myself with a little extra cash and combined that with the sudden passion to own something I thought I would never have. Caveat—-had to be a good deal. So I start...
