I looked at the blade that came on my new Unisaw (36-R3u). Couldn't believe
It is an OLD steel blade (not carbide tipped). I was very surprised. I
think, if I were Delta, I would have just not put a blade on the Unisaw

I would wager that the average person spending $1500+ on a new saw probably
have strong opinions as to what type of blade they want and are likely to
use mutiple blades on the saw. To a person buying it for sheet goods a top
quality rip blade would be a throwaway. Why waste thier (or your) money
trying to make them guess?
If Unisaw buyers are so discriminating that they would reject a high quality
blade, then why ship the saw with a blade at all? Do toys that ship without
batteries because their buyers are discriminating about which batteries they
The MBAs are running Delta. The signs are all there.
The darn blade is in my way in designing a fixture for making a zero curf
insert fabrication fixture. I could take it off, but it is in the garage in
the box for a while while I wait for my son to come over to help me get it

You got a BONUS! I just looked at Delta web page and they don't mention a
blade being included. None shown on the parts list. Cost cutting?
My Delta contractor saw came with carbide a couple of years ago. While not
a great blade, it is serviceable for a lot of work.
