I bought a Delta 36-L352 UniSaw last summer. All was good until after I got it assembled and found that the side extension table had a vey bad crown in the middle, definitely not flat. I immediately called Delta and was told that the part was on factory backorder. After a year, last week I was finally told it was in stock and it was shipped right away. Well, I got all excited today when FedEx delivered the new table, that is until I got it unpacked. The first thing I noticed was nuts and bolts all over the place. I got the table portion out of the box and noticed that somewhere along the line, the back right corner of the table had taken a hit, bent the frame, chipped the top off of the corner and was now a thicker dimension than the rest of the table. There was no damage to the outside of the package though.
I can possibly combine the original bad order top with the new top, but good grief. I chose the UniSaw over the Saw Stop because of where most of the Uni-Saw is supposed to be made, the USA. I am now feeling a bit of regret about that decision. I can call again to see if they have a replacement table board in stock but how much is a guy supposed to put up with.
At this point I am thinking about repairing the saw, selling it and replacing it with a Saw Stop ICS. I know Delta is having internal issues, but dam, they aren’t going to survive doing business like this.
What would you all do?
