Delta 34-570, 34-580, TS350 type 1
Is anyone familiar with these saws? I believe they are from 1980s except perhaps the last one. All have a distinctive feature: 1 hp single phase induction (brushless) motor with the blade sitting directly on the motor shaft (no belts or gears). Being a 1 phase, the motor must have relatively low starting torque. I also runs at ~3500 rpm. If you ever used one of these I am interested in your opinion on the performance (underpowered?). I realize these are not a 3-hp cabinet saws and 1-hp says it all, but how do they compare to modern day universal motor bench-top saws? Again, I am interested in the powerplant.
