Hi all, I have come across some Delta saws for sale, one 36-474 and two 36-441Cs. I haven’t been able to find out a whole lot about them online. The 36-474 looks to be a higher quality saw, so I was drawn more to that one. All three have Uni-fences and look to be in approximately the same shape (they came from a shop that modifies vans into campers so I’m thinking they would have mostly ripped a lot of plywood only).

Can anyone speak to the quality of these saws, and what price would be reasonable to pay for them?

Thanks!

I’m not familiar with either of those models off the top of my head, but if they have a belt drive outboard 1.5hp induction motor, are 27” deep, and have a Unifence, they could all be good functional full size contractor saws with nice fences. Condition, age, and completeness determine their actual value. Solid cast iron wings are worth more than steel, mobile bases, and extra inserts are nice to have. Having the original miter gauge or a good after market miter gauge would add some value vs not including it. Having the original blade guard is nice too. A broad price range assuming they are true contractor saws, and not compact saws with a direct drive motor, would be roughly $200-$500… depending….could be lower if they’re trashed, but it’d take like new condition and some good extras for them to be worth much more IMO. How much are they?

Thanks knottscott, I didn’t see a miter gauge with it, but I can ask. It has a 1 1/2 HP outboard as you describe. I have also added a picture as well. I’m fairly new to the game and would like to replace my Craftsman TS if this is a good price. It sounded like the owner would let it go for ”$400 – $500, so I take that as $400. Also, note I am in Canada and equipment up here always seems to be more expensive than you folks to the south.

Thanks for the advice!

That looks pretty sweet to me….solid cast wing, nice extension table, looks to be in very nice shape, nice fence. Stock miter gauges aren’t usually all that good anyway, it was just used as an example of what adds or detracts from value. IMO that’s a buy at $400. You can get a decent miter gauge for ~ $60, and decent blades start at ~ $30.

Nice work. That’s a great price. I just bought the same saw, but in need of much more TLC for $300. $350 cad for your saw seems like a better deal

Nice….good for you. Check the alignment thoroughly, and get a decent blade for it. Congrats!

I have a 36-477 which looks nearly identical to the saw you bought. I’ve owned mine for over 15 years and it’s still going strong, I’ve never wished for anything else.

Thanks for your feedback guys. Next question, the saw is currently wired for 240 but I don’t currently have a receptacle in my garage for it. I can wire up a dedicated 240/15 or 20 amp plug for it easily enough (it only draws 8.4 A on 240 I believe). Does it make that much of a difference? If so, should I go 15 or 20 A? At the moment I don’t see why I would need more than 15A service.

Thanks!

If its just a matter of wiring up a 240v outlet, I’d definitely go for it….should be no harder than rewiring the saw back to 120v.

Add a MJ splitter and a mitre gauge of your choice, Inrca, Kreg, etc, and you are good to go!

The cost for putting in a breaker and outlet 15a vs 20a is nominal. If it were me , I would go with the 20a…. allowing for future equipment.
