Be careful with this saw. I had a Delta 36-600 and I loved it. Great
saw to get started but it had some limitations, which can be overcome
with some jigs and some patience. I believe this saw is the same as
what is now your model. Correct me if I'm wrong, the the spitter hand
from a support that is connected to a rod coming out of the back of the
saw and there is no support through the throat plate. Is that correct?
If so, be very careful with that blade guard. The splitters on most
saws have that additional support through the throat plate, but the
lack of that additional support makes this very flimsy. When cross
cutting some wood, my splitter deflected and was actually caught by the
blade. I quickly turned the saw off, and no wood flew any where, but
it scared me. I started using the saw without the guard.
I made a homemade zero clearance throat plate out of some extra 1/8th
inch panaling. You can glue some sort of a homemde splitter to that.
Unfortunately, none of the after market splitters will work.
Good luck with the saw. I've since moved on, but I made a basement
full of cabinets with that saw and in the process got hooked on this
woodworking. If you DAWGS on my handle Woodchuck34 + 36-600, you'll
see a lot of old info on my experiences with the saw. I just double
checked Delta's website and it does appear to be the smae saw.
