Topic tags/keywords: question resource tip tablesaw

It’s been forever since I’ve been on here. Life got super busy. My second daughter was born this past Feb and my business partner and I are moving our small wanna be businesd out of my 200 sq ft shop and into a 1000 sq ft proper work shop alrealy roughed in for 220 service…We are looking to also add some better tools and equipment. Most of our tools now are bench top, big box brand tools…All top of the line, but only top of the line in that realm. We eventually want to move up to a cabinet saw (from our two dewalt contractor saws) and a wide belt sander (from a dozen ROS’s) but we are moving slowly and budget is tight.
So a friend of mine has been trying to sell me his table saw…it’s a Delta 10inch Tilting Arbor Saw (model 36-755) and I googled and researched and have only really learned that is was supposed yo be a sorr of hybrid saw. Not so much a cabinet saw but better than a contractor saw…a contractor saw on steroids, is a description I’ve read. I will get some pics up later, but for now here is a pic of the booklet…the condition is ok (a little old and slight surface rust on top)...her originally wanted 500…I said no. Now he’s asking for 300…it is 15amps/220v…any advice or suggestions? Thanks!!!

If it has the Unifence and extension table, $300 is not that bad of a deal. Surface rust on the table can easily be taken care of, but make a big deal about it being neglected and rusty so you can get him down a little more :)

If I were you I would take it. It is really a step above of what you seem to have. I do not own this saw but I did an upgrade from a ridgid 4512 to a hybrid delta 36-714, it’s a night and day difference. Just the fence on the Delta would greatly improve the fence system from a contractor saw.
If you do not like it you could still resell it.
good luck

Find yourself a Delta Uni-saw or a Powermatic, they are the best.
I bought a used a 3HP 10” Unisaw for $300.00, it needed some work but nothing bad.
