Editor's Review:

by Tom Begnal

review date: November 1, 2003

The test cuts were good, with the motor showing no tendency to bog down. The Delta had the flattest table and little wheel or tire runout. The tension spring was heavy duty, and the fence was our favorite. The Delta has cast-iron wheels and trunnion support.
