My grandfather left me his old table saw when he passed. The fence was broken years ago. I would like to replace it if I can find one. It is a model #34-710. I know its old but it was “Papa’s”. The “clamp assy” is whats broken the rest is ok. Thanks!

The Delta T2 fence at Lowes for $150 is probably your best buy out there.

I think that is a screamer with a small top, so it has a special fence like one of the other posters here.

ducdowg, is the top 27” deep?

A screemer, good one. Yeah I noticed that too Marc, it’s not a Contractors saw, but I think it has the full size top, and is a screamer with a small cog drive belt.

well the only universal motor saws I’ve seen, including the 36-600 delta with a cast iron top all had small tops. I could be wrong, I can’t seem to find much on that model.

On the other hand I need to get back out in the garage and keep working on my 32” deep top Walker-Turner Saw. The extensions are about as wide as most tops on this thing.

The top is 22” across. Plus another 3” for the rails.

Ohhhhhh, a Walker-Turner eh ? Gotta luv the good old American made iron. 22” I think is a bit shy, if I remember correctly, my Delta Contractor’s saw top is 25” deep.

I, for a short period of time, owned the Delta cast iron top with a universal motor. Probably identical to this. While not horrible saws the smaller top makes things a bit ackward at times.

A T2 Would not fit on that saw, the short top was also a bit thinner than a contractor/cabinet top and the bolt holes where not in the right places. Being thinner pretty much killed the ability to drill and tap correct holes.

Have your say...
