I'm in the market for a table saw and I'm trying to decide between two
used Delta models available locally. The first is an XL-10 (36-380)
that is about 7 years old but is in pretty good shape - asking price is
$275. The other is a 36-600 (precursor to the TS-300) that is
essentially unused - asking price $225. I've found lots of great
information here and other places on each of these saws but I haven't
been able to determine if they are equivalent saws or is one
significantly better quality than the other.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
I just looked at parts diagrams for both saws at
Both are direct drive, but the 36-380 appears to use an induction
motor. That would be a big plus IMHO, but my best advice would be to
pass on both of them and try to find a "conventional" belt-drive saw.
No dumb questions, just dumb answers.
