Topic tags/keywords: delta 36-585 dual bevel miter saw miter saw

Hi everybody!

I’m new here, and am psyched to have access to all your knowledge and expertise!

About two years ago I inherited my uncle’s woodworking shop, complete with a nice selection of older Delta power tools, including drill press, grinder, scroll saw, bench sander.

I picked up a cherry 1950 Delta Unisaw Jr 8” right tilt table saw, restored it and rewired it for 240v.

I want to round out my collection with the hard to find dual bevel miter saw, model 36-585.

I am having one hell of a time finding this saw in second hand stores or on CL.

Anybody know of a used power tool source where I might be able to score this little beauty?

I would settle for a 36-085 model or a 36-412 or -422 if I had to, but I think the 10” models are more accurate. I have a new sliding single bevel saw for 12” cuts.

I am in Western North Carolina, but would be willing to pay for shipping or travel a few hours to pick it up.

Any help to be found would be appreciated.

I can’t help but I’ve owned 3 Delta miter saw, one from early days and none of them were very good. I have a lot of Delta stuff but they didn’t make very good miter saws. I wish you luck but I wouldn’t put much effort into it or spend much money.

The other problem with Delta tools is the company was bought out by a Chinese company and they made the decision not to keep and sell parts for old machines any more. I’m talking about tools that are just a few years old.

Have your say...
