This is a probably a long shot but I know there are a few LJ’s in the upstate NY area. I’ll post it here free to any LJ before I put it on Craigslist.

I have a 1950’s Delta Milwaukee 8” Table Saw Model 34-500. (3/4HP 8.6A motor)
It works but is in need of a bit of fine tuning (a new lock nut on the depth adjuster, a new key…relatively minor stuff.

It was my Grandfather’s saw and I’ve owned it for 15 years, but we are moving and it can not come with us.

Here are the photos

These saws are solidly built and can be restored.
Here are some people that have done it and written about it

Again, this is free to any LJ that wants to come get it. I’d rather see it go to one of us than someone else, but after a few days I will put it on Craigslist if I nobody on here wants it.

I’ve thought about getting one of those to try the fence on my old
Delta 20” bandsaw. I’ve never seen anybody say the fences are the
same but they look very similar to me.

Yeah – that would be cool. It’s the depth of the table from
front to back that’s relevant. I’m close to certain the TS fence
would need to be cut shorter and the back-lock rod shortened
to fit the bandsaw, but I could be wrong.

Loren the table is 22” front to back
The outer span from the front rail to the back rail is 23 -3/4”
The rails are 1” high.

Hope this helps.

Swirt, thanks for posting. I have had the same model saw since 1982. Still use it. Works fine. Does everything I need.
