Just picked up a delta 34-474 from CL. I am starting to clean it up. Everything is original and the saw was amde in sep ‘97. Seems to run fine. I am missing a couple of items – the manual and the blade wrenches. Any tips to complete the set?

Regarding your Delta parts I have not used this companies service but I use to run across their name in the Fine Woodworking Forum.

Did you check with Delta? Here is the exploded parts diagram and link to the manual:

Delta 34-474 - Delta Service Net

And there really isn’t anything special about the blade wrench… it’s just a stamped steel thing and pretty much the same as can be found with most all other Delta and other manufacturers saws. A standard open end wrench can be used as well.

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks Brad. I got to the manual and it seems to be for model 34-444. Not sure what is different. The picture in the manual shows a stamped steel wing while the one that I bought has a cast iron one. I will print and keep the manual anyways. The wrenches too – the old ones from my current saw (protech) work. All in all a good day.

Thanks wuddoc. I will check to see if they can tell me what the differnce might be.

The same saw can have different catalog numbers depending on what options it shipped with… motor size, fence, extension wings, stand type, etc… The base unit is identical and the differences will be relatively unimportant.

For example – the current Delta hybrid saw is typically known as the 36-5000, which is the saw with stamped steel wings and a 30” rip capacity fence. The 36-5100 is the same but with cast iron extension wings. The 36-5052 is the same as the 36-5000 but with a 52” fence, and the 36-5152 is the same but with cast iron wings. Besides the wings and fence, the saws are identical in every other way.

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks Brad.

I can’t wait to get the going. It is working – I made test cuts before I bought it but it is in parts now in my basement. Once I clear up the space for it, I will set it up and get going. Projects are awaiting.

Update: cleaned up the saw and set it up. Sprayed lube and wiped clean. Changed the blade to a freid thin kerf 90 tooth atb. Mostly work with mdf or particle – using old left over boards to make shelving for the shop. Cuts very nice and square. Picked up a delta miter sled (very very heavy, whew) and cut it to the blade. Works well. The unifence was a little tilted close to the blade at the back (dangerous). Fixed it by adjusting the front plastic screws on the fence. Added an out feed table using old shelving and angle iron. Overall very happy. For 230+40 I am all set for the saw now.
