Had an old friend call me last week about a table saw. He said he has a table saw that he inherited two years ago and that he didn’t want it and that I could have it. I visited him a few days later and in the garage is an old Delta Unisaw in very good condition. I checked the serial number and it was built in 1946. I’m tickled with my Delta Unisaw and now can retire my Craftsman 10 inch.
