Fellow lumberjocks: Last week my new Delta Unisaw was delivered to my house and I almost have it assembled but not aligned. Well, today I received a call from International Tool, from whom I bought the saw, and was told Delta would be sending me a new blade and a return sticker for me to ship the original blade back to Delta. I asked why and she said that “Delta isn’t saying it’s a recall yet but they want to make sure you have the very best blade available in the market. “So”, she continued, “they’re sending you a new blade free of charge and only asking that you return the original blade upon receipt of the replacement”. I asked her if she had any idea why this was happening and all she could say was that it isn’t a recall yet! Does anybody have any information about this? A quick Google of “Delta Unisaw blade recall” didn’t bring up anything that was relevant. I’m not trying to say anything bad about Delta, in fact I am so impressed with the packing job they did that if the saw is half as good as the packing I’m one happy bugger. And the sliding drawer mechanism is better than anything I have in my kitchen cabinets. It is one beautiful hunk of machine!!! But I do find this whole thing about the blade a bit curious. Anybody out there got anything for me?

-- If I had known grandkids were so great I would've had them first.

#1 posted 06-25-2009 07:08 AM a similar message today regarding my sawblade, mookie. And a fine-looking blade it is, too. Just putting the final touches on the saw. And you got that right: a fine looking piece of machinery it is. Asked my retailer what model the replacement blade would be, but no answer yet, since I don’t suppose they know.

Did you happen to notice that the riving knife supplied with the saw is not the .087” model described in the tech manual, but rather the .106” model described as an accessory. My calipers are giving .098” for the body of the blade, which is the upper limit prescribed for use with the larger riving knife. Don’t see why this should be a problem.

The blade I have is the 35-1050R 50tooth combo…. Have you used yours yet, Mookie?
