I decided to buy a Delta 36-444 10" Contractor's Saw and stumbled
across the Delta 36-680 10" Contractor Saw with 2 Cast Iron Wings &
30" T-Square Fence System. Is this the same saw with options? Is it
better than the 36-444? Does it have a better fence? ( I can't afford
a biesemeyer just now... )
I searched the web and Delta's site and I can't find any information.
Your wisdom and knowledge greatly appreciated.
The only differance I can find is the cast vs. steel wings, and the T-square
fence vs, the Unirip. The T-square fence is a extremely light duty version
of a Biesmeyer. I believe the Unirip is a bit better quality, but I have no
experiance with either. I am reasonably sure the basic saw is the same
between the two. I would be tempted to go with the 36-680 and upgrade the
You may want to evaluate your needs right now and see if you can hold out
untill you can buy a saw with a Unifence or Biesmeyer
Have you considered a Grizzly GO44Z? Cast iron wings, good fence, all for
$600 delivered. Looks like a nice saw!
According to my Delta catalog the 444's motor is rated at 1.5HP @120V/2.0HP
where as the 680's is 1.5HP for 120 and 240V. Delta has the 680 rated
2 table saws below the 444 on their performance scale.
