Topic tags/keywords: question

While in Woodcraft yesterday, there was a discussion with one of the managers of the store and a couple of us about lack of Delta cabinet saws in the place. He claimed that getting parts for the Unisaws was becoming more difficult and thus that’s why Woodcraft stopped carrying them.

It was the first I had ever heard that. Anybody ever heard this, or experienced this?

Delta is done. They are now just another generic name backed by an overseas company pumping out junk. It’s sad because I LOVED delta. All of my major shop machines were Delta. The Unisaw was the best cabinet saw hands down. But that company doesn’t exist anymore, just the name.

I thank my lucky stars I bought a made in the USA Unisaw brand new years ago. It took a big hunk out of my wallet at the time. I had purchsed a Sears table saw and used it two weeks before I figured out it was not powerful enough and some other things.
The Delta has been running without a hitch since 1987.

Gerald,
I aspire to own a Unisaw one day. I just hope that replacement parts remain abundant.

They made a billion of them. I am sure you’ll have little trouble finding one, and replacement parts for years to come.
