Topic tags/keywords: vintage delta tablesaw rockwell homecraft millwaukee

Hi ya’ll,
I came across this perfect working table saw that rips through lumber like nothing I have seen today; very durable too. I just cannot pinpoint the date of manufacture (not on the tag either). Serial number is Z 736, Delta Rockwell Manufacturing Co., other side has a stamp Delta Homecraft, and was made in Milwaukee WisconsinI was thinking that it was made in the 40’s to 50’s. It has been kept inside hence the excellent condition, but my father-in-law was using an old low voltage extension cord for the power supply which caused the motor to stop turning; although this was remedied by switching to regular 110 wire with a light switch for the on/off switch. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

when cutting joints. That style of saw was made by Delta as early as the

Looks like a 34-160. Looks like around 1951.

Here is a parts manual.
