If anyone is considering buying the Delta 36-715 10" Hybrid with any of the
three available fence options you should take a look at the Amazon.com
website .... if sales tax is not involved you can get it to the door with
the T2 fence for $649.99 Unifence for $749.99 and the Biesemeyer fence for
I know opinions run strong both ways on this saw but at these price points
it is hard to beat.
After much thought and keeping budget in mind I placed my order for one of
these with the T2 fence earlier today.
While this choice may not be right for anyone else I think I will be very
happy with this saw.
Yup, I got on and signed up for one myself. I'm a little concerned about
not going with the beisemeyer fence (went with the T2) but the price was
right on the 36-715. I've been using a $100 Craftsman for a couple years so
this'll be a huge improvement in all regards. Saw shipped today from
Amazon, can't wait! Jeff
I got the "shipped" email Tuesday.
It looks like the $150 off promotion has ended on Amazon.
Glad to hear someone else got in on the deal.
I think you will be pleased with the T2 fence, I got to see one and it looks
like it is a winner.
I sorta have a whole story to go with my saw purchase .... like most
everyone else I do not have a money tree in the backyard so nothing is as
simple as just buying the "best" .... $$ in the budget determines what is
"best" at the time .... I had shopped the local Rockler store for some small
items a couple of times in the last month and of course I drooled over the
real tools while I was there. Quite unexpectedly on the way home SWMBO (She
Who Must Be Obeyed) told me that since I had been working so much OT she
thought I deserved a new tool. She was well aware of the saws I had been
looking at so the $$ factor was not something I had to negotiate with her.
WOO WHOOO!!!!! Well I went to work trying to determine if I "needed" a
$1000+ table saw or if I could be happy with a less expensive table saw and
get the Jet 14" bandsaw (on sale at Rockler $350) to keep it company in the
garage. I went on a few tool shopping outings and saw several different
products and had decided that I would buy the Craftsman 922124 when it went
on a good sale (< $800). I went back to Rockler to buy the bandsaw and they
had just received some of the Delta 36-715's they were still in the shipping
crates and they were selling so fast that Rockler was not even going to
unpack them. I was hesitant about the T2 fence and the manager opened one of
the "fence" boxes so I could see what I was getting. The fence looks like it
is very well made and heavy duty, for me it seemed like a winner ..... and
at $799 it was priced where I needed it to be so I could have the table saw
and the bansaw. Believe it or not, but it is true, the guy checking out in
front of me got the last bandsaw they had in the store so I paid for the
table saw and ordered the bandsaw. I was a very happy wood worker. My truck
has a bed cover so I could not load the table saw up and take it home that
day. No big deal since I was going to have to come back for the bandsaw
later this week anyway. Having read several pro and con reviews about the
Delta hybrid saw during my "research" phase I got back on the internet and
started searching for more user reviews and a new one from Amazon popped up.
That is where I found out about the $150 discount (the reviewer actually
said he was able to combine discounts and got it to the door for $467 ....
wow what a deal ....the deals he mentioned were a little different from what
I saw so I called Amazon about combining the free Dewalt sawsall promotion
and the $150 discount and they told me it was one or the other, not both).
With the discount it made the Delta saw $649.99 to the door (from Amazon) vs
$862.92 (out the door from Rockler) for this much difference I just had to
see if I could cancel the purchase from Rockler ... to sum it up Rockler was
great about it, very nice and very friendly about the whole thing, no
restocking fees, everything was handled over the phone. Since I am still
buying the Jet 14" bandsaw from Rockler I only feel a little bit guilty
about the manager opening the fence box from the table saw for me to look
inside then me ending up canceling the sale and going mail order.
I actually got my "shipped" email on Monday. Should be getting three boxes
on the 16th, but the big (350 lbs. big) delivery only on the 21st. It's not
going to take as long as I thought. I ordered my Jet bandsaw through Amazon
(last year) and it was actually pushing three months before I received it!
