I am looking at an auction item that is listed as a Delta "CS" Table Saw. It
lists the actual model # as 34-444. Supposedly bought in 1997. I am not very
familiar with Delta TS's and all the descriptions listed in the catalogs I have
are 36-***. Is it some kind of saw used for production shops? Its a beefy
saw. thats for sure. 220, 5/8 arbor and cast iron. Ideas?? Thanks.
Originally all Delta tablesaws were 34-xxx numbers. I think Delta started
numbering lower end saws (more home hobbyist saws) as 36-xxx numbers a
couple of years ago. But, I have a Delta 34-670 that is about 10 years old
and was bottom of the line...still a rather good saw for me.
I have the 34-445 which is a package deal with the 34-444, 30" unifence,
stamped left extension, and wheels. 8 yrs ago I think. The TS is US
made and has been bulletproof for me (hobbyist). I later upgraded the
left side to cast iron, but this is a very nice contractor's saw. Like
any piece of cast iron, the top could have dips and such. Take along
your long, trusted straight edge when you go look at it.
I have a 34-444. It's the classic Delta contractor's saw, American
made, solid and reliable. It comes from the factory with the motor
set for 110v, but can be switched to 220 by opening a cover and moving
a couple of wires. Assuming it's in good condition, you won't go
wrong with it.
