Delta - Midsize Tablesaw 36-426
Delta’s midsize tablesaw features the workhorse Unifence, a 10-in. blade, and a 1-1/2 hp motor.
The first big workshop purchase for most people is a tablesaw. Priced and sized between the large cabinet saws and small benchtop saws, a contractor-style saw is the logical choice for many. I surveyed several brands on the market, checking for flatness, runout, and whether the factory settings of the trunnions and motors were parallel to the miter-gauge slots in the tops. I also ripped and crosscut 8/4 white oak and hard maple to test the machines under load. All of the saws I tested performed well. The Delta was a well-made and appointed machine. The Delta Unifence was versatile, accurate, and easy to operate. However, the machine could use a better dust-collection system.
