Wondrin' if anyone has any knowledge of this saw. Can't find much info
on the Delta site. A guy has one for sale near me for $135. Sounds
reasonable. I found a manual online and all I can figure out from that
is that it is belt driven which I think is good right? (noob) He says
that it is 15 amps. Is that sufficient for hobby woodworking? Any
wisdom greatly appreciated! Thanks, Peter
I saw a replacement belt of this model on line
and it looks like a unique belt - toothed (if that's a word) rather than the
v-belt on my saw (which I replaced witha LINK BELT (and love it - big

From what I saw in the manual, I would suggest you could do as well with a
new saw from Sears o Harbor freight tools - maybe better.
I've had one for about 20 years...
I'd take the 135.00 and put a few more dollars with it and buy a better
It's under powered for most jobs and the table is too small....
The belts are about 20.00 and are a pain to put on....
A good used older craftsman would be a better buy.
The 34-670 uses a small cogged drive belt enclosed within the motor
housing, The motor itself is a single-purpose design made just for this
saw. The saw is similar to the 36-600 and the more recent TS350. It
is a step or 2 above a benchtop model, but it is not in the same class
as what most people would call a contractor's saw. If it is in good
condition $135 is a fair price, but a "true" contractors saw, with an
induction motor and regular belt drive, somewhat larger table surface,
would be more poweful, quiter, and more pleasant to use.
No dumb questions, just dumb answers.
