You’re gonna have to do better than that… never heard of a Delta “scholastic” anything, and that doesn’t look like a Delta catalog/model number. Pictures? Better description? Serial numbers?

Cheers,
Brad

The guy gave me the wrong model number over the phone. It’s a 36-640 table saw with a miter gauge, blade and fence unbelievably square. It will be great until I need a part but you can’t beat free. Does anyone know what size belt this uses? Also, does anyone know of a place that HAS delta parts, it is tiring searching only to find that parts are discontinued. Thanks.

I have dealt with ereplacement parts before with good results, but if all you need is a belt, you should look into link v-belt. They are a little pricey, but can make a dramatic difference in reducing the vibration with a contractor saw. It is available from several woodworking stores and Harbor Freight

ereplacementparts has very little for this saw. Most of the parts are discontinued. All of the other parts sites I’ve found also don’t have them. I’m looking for someone or somewhere that has info on the delta saws 36-640 or 36-630.

I believe the 640 was a glorified bench saw with universal motor and I wouldn’t put much money into it.

What parts are you looking for? Most of the stuff typically needed is off the shelf hardware store items. The belt is just a standard v-belt that you can find at your local auto parts or hardware store, or a link belt can be used as mentioned. Bearings are the same, and can be sourced from any number of bearing suppliers like Accurate Bearing (favorite of the OWWM crowd). The aftermarket suppliers (renovoparts, ereplacementparts, mikestools, etc…) still have some parts available, and others can be found on the bay or you can check the buy/sell/trade section over at OWWM (“BOYD” – Bring out your dead… but you gotta be a member of the site to access it). Lots of documentation and other information can be found over at the Vintagemachinery site, and an owners manual can be found here.

Cheers,
Brad

PS: That is a very capable contractor type saw worth getting into shape. It originally came with a metal stand and a Unifence, which would be a nice bonus if you got them with it.
