Looking at the pix it looks different than mine. Your vertical handles are both on the left side and pretty close together. I’ve had a Delta for years (note to self… go clean that up so it looks as pretty as that). My experience is that they require a lot of trial and error to get that perfect tenon. But once set up on repetitive cuts you can go into hyper speed and unless you are someone that really should not own a saw your fingers are safe.

I have the same jig and just recently tuned mine up and it works great. One word of caution is don’t over tighten the synthetic lock levers as they can strip out easily but they only need to be tightened snugly and not torqued down.

The reason that the handles may look so close together is that the way that I have it adjusted for the smaller table of the Rockwell 9” Contractor’s table saw that it’s siting on in the picture, or they look close in the first picture because of the angle that I took the picture. Also this is setup for a right tilt saw, but the owners manual says that it can be setup for a left tilt. The newer model to this one is the 34-184. I here ya on the levers, I’ve had the same problems as you have had with them on other pieces of machinery.

Have your say...
