About a month ago, I purchased a Delta Cabinet Saw (Not Unisaw). After
delivery, I looked at the book and discovered that you had to buy a new and
different arbor for a dado head and another still for a molding head cutter.
You coudn't even leave the longer one on for the regular blade due to it
hitting the throat when tilted. Since I hadn't assembled the saw, I decided
to return it.
I bought a Grizzly 1023SL, have it together and am happy with it and then
Delta called . . . The rep that sold the first saw at the show felt bad
about the arbor situation and said they didn't realize it because I had
bought the first one in the Midwest. They shipped a new X5 to the local
tool depot and advised me that for my trouble, they would sell me the saw
with a 52" Bies, extension table and mobile base for only about $200 more
than I paid for the other one which was about $1200.
I like the Griz but I don't think I can pass it up. Probably put store and
then put an ad in the paper to sell the Griz - can even afford to take a bit
of a hit on it. Even if it doesn't work out, Delta really made the effort
and I'll remember them for it.
