I bought a table saw for 325$ (can.). It was made by "Diltec" but almost
identical to the 34-410 Delta. The blade guard was missing (200$) but I
thought it was a good buy.
When I tried to tune it, I realised how this tool was badly treated. A main
piece was broken (150$). The ball bearing and some others parts needed to be
replaced (50$). The rail for the fence is lightly bended (80$).
What did the last owner do with it ? I don't know. Fortunately there is a
good motor and spare parts are still available.
For a well tuned table saw I will have to spend 800$. For the same price, I
could have bought a new one with a warranty without all this problems.
Next time I will be more careful with the "good deals".
