I stopped after a meeting today to check out the DJ20 and the 14" at my
local coastaltool.com and the Delta rep was there. Man was it an informative
discussion we had.
1.) Delta is on the block to be sold. Apparently, Pentair the parent company
is looking to strategically align their business around water pumps, etc...
They reecntly acquired WICOR and looking to purchase other water related
companies. He mentioned that Ryobi is taking a look at the Delta, P&C, and
2.) There are tools still made/assembled in the US. The Unisaw, contractor
saw, sanders, and the new 14" X5 Bandsaw is now made in Tupelo,MS not Asia.
For how long that continues who knows.
3.) The new X5 DJ20 is all made overseas where as the old DJ20 the cabinet
and motor are made in the US. I'm picking up my DJ20 on Saturday.
You all may know this info but I thought I would share what I learned.
