  1. Eyeing this jointer for sale, auction actually, and I can't tell if it's 6 or 8"; I want to say 8. Also, is it worth buying?...only 3/4 HP motor.
  2. Ok, here's the last machine from my Monday "I'm just going to look" haul. So when the Craig's List poster told me he had machines in the garage loft I just had to look. So up into the loft we go, and what do I spot? This machine first appeared in the 1933 Delta general line catalog. It was the table saw that became the Homecraft 34-160 after WWII. There's probably a ton of them out there, but I've been after an early one for a long time. Why an early one? Here's why! Only the early machines had "DELTA" cast into the side of the m
  3. I found this on Craigs List, and I was curious what it's used for? I don't even know if it's metal or woodworking related. Thanks for any information.
  4. Welp first turn of the new year. 2021. As well as the first turn on the brand new delta lathe. It took me a few minutes to figure out that forward is backwards and reverse is forwards basically. Either way I love the lathe so thanks to who ever suggested buying that one it was well worth the 600 some odd dollars I spent on it. It is extremely quiet and I'm honestly over all happy and impressed with it. Beats the harbor freight lathe by 1000 fold. I also got my new cole jaws for the larger bowls as well but I wanted to do a small little myrtle wood bowl for myself to throw my keys in whe
  5. A few days ago I stopped in our local junkyard to see whats new... I seen a Delta scroll saw in the trash... I seen that the head was missing. I never seen one this big in the junkyard before. I said to myself Wow. To bad the heads missing... Then I walked up to the tin pile and there was another guy unloading another saw just like the one below. The skid steer was pushing everything back to make more room. After the skid steer was finished I Looked what was left of the saw. I could not believe that It had what looked like a good head on it. Everything else
  6. Anyone know if the jaws from the Nova line will fit the Delta version?
  7. Last year I bought a Dewalt DW735 planer to replace my Delta 22-580 13” planer. The Dewalt has been my mainstay and I’m very happy with it but the Delta has been sitting in the corner collecting dust. I stuck it there using the excuse that I have a backup but truth be known it really needs to find a new home. What do you think the fair market value for the Delta is?
  8. Not a good day today. The switch on my table saw went out in the off position. The saw is 21 yrs. old this yr. I had replaced the switch 5 yrs. ago. It was difficult to obtain because the saw is a Delta. I had my notes and ordered the same replacement switch. The switch was ordered from REPLACEMENT PARTS.com. They indicated that it will be 18-21 days for them to receive the switch from Delta warehouse and I paid to have 3-day turn-around from REPLACEMENT PARTS. This is all predicated that Delta really does have the part. I have been down this path before when I tried to get a replacem
  9. During these current events with the Covid19 virus, and it's side effects I'm reminded of what I heard/read about The Great Depression. So that got me to thinking that this was also Delta's early years when they had to compete for buyers scarce spending dollars. Most of my machines are from this period in both our country's, and Delta's History. Being that most of my machines are now approaching 90 years old, and not being a purist I have where needed used parts from later model machines to replace hard to, if not impossible to find parts. I do so in a manner that can be reve
  10. The following images can help in determining the age of your Delta machines by the badge it wears, providing the part with the badge is original to the machine. 1936 1937 1938 1939-1941 1941-1952 1953-1966 1966-1973
  11. I've found the information in these catalog snips very useful over the years redoing my old machines. But every time I've needed them I've had to look to find them, so I'm putting them here so I can find them easier. Hopefully you will find them useful yourself. Around 1972 Delta changed the catalog numbers. Instead of ordering a pulley and having to specify the bore size you ordered by a specific catalog number. These and other 5 digit catalog numbers were then again changed around 1983. The new numbers were 12 digit. The below links will take you to the 5
  12. Last Sunday my neighbor called me stating he found one of those Delta machine lamps I had showed him. ...He didn't tell me it was attached to a machine. First a view of the lamp. Turns out it was attached to a 1939-40 Delta Catalog No. 645 11" DP, that in spite of being damaged was in pretty nice shape. First a photo showing the damage.It appears to have been dumped on it's top at some point in it's life. You can see the replacement motor pulley on the left. Even the decals don't look to shabby. Early SN 1-8660. And to top it off a
  13. I have an old Delta 40-560 scroll saw. The air diaphragm, or bellows, that generates the air flow to keep the cut line free of dust is shot. I can't find a replacement for this part anywhere. I emailed Delta, but they don't have a replacement. They recommended I check with another company that specializes in obsolete and discontinued parts, but I struck out there. So here is my question. You know the flex seal product, where the pitch man sticks a patch on a leaking 5 gal bucket of water, or cuts a boat in half and then fixes it with the tape version of this product? Would that fix the
  14. I have some oddities in my shop. I try to be as organized as I can and some of my organizational methods, ehem, are somewhat to be desired to say the least! I have for years stored the chuck key to my Rockwell Delta Drill Press in a location that I know where it always is, and it also serves a secondary purpose as well. Here is the my beloved Delta Rockwell Drill Press. And the place I keep the chuck key, the original chuck key that came with the drill press is here. Please tell me I am not the only one that has an oddity in the shop such as this. This gate keeper, errr I mean chuck key

    Hey Folks, I have a used Delta LA 200 and am looking for parts which is quite a challenge since they are no longer produced. I did find a power switch but I need a handle to lock the quill. I see many lathes that this part seems to fail on and was wondering if anyone knew of the thread and bolt size required. It did not have the handle when I bought it (just a bolt and vice grips) but am thinking that if it matches the handles on other lathes then I could just buy a replacement part for one of them. Thanks, Joe
  16. I visited a friend today who is moving to a retirement community in August. He had a very complete shop and while the community has a woodshop, they could not use all his donations. He's sold some and wanted me to come over and pick up two grinders that he wanted to donate to the woodworking club. Well, low and behold, he had a couple more things. One was a mortising machine that he offered me for free. I have been trying to find an efficient way to cut mortises for a while. I have a BeadLock but it's slow and you either need to chisel out the sides or buy the proprietary tenons.
  17. I planned this out and put it together a couple years ago, it has a Thein style dust plate inside the seperator drum. I'm extremely happy, and proud of this project.
  18. I've got to quit looking at Craig's List. I first spotted this on the above mentioned website about 2 weeks ago. It just kept drawing me back, and after seeing it posted for that long I just had to check it out. It was about 35-40 miles from me. I called the poster on Sunday, but only got his voice mail. I checked Craig's List again on Monday, and it was still listed. So I replied via email this time, and within 10 minutes received a phone call from the poster. He stated it was still available! ....... What was I to do? Needless to say I had to c
  19. I have a friend that just bought a Delta 43-379 shaper and it is missing a 1/2” collet. Collet part number is 698799. Anyone have a spare one that they want to sell? Message me here on site
  20. This Delta No. 318 8in. Circular Saw "Tilty" & 4" joiner combo is another gem from grandpa. I've not run across modern day photo's of this but I've only recently began to look. I found the catalog where this appears. Delta Quality Tools Catalogue G - Oct. 1 1930 - thanks to vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=3205 The 4" Craftsman joiner almost looks like the Delta. Maybe a Craftsman guard was used to replace the original? More research is needed here. This is another well kept item and runs pretty well although it could use a little more torque so the deeper cu
  21. On New Years Day we made our rounds and visited family, and we paid ol pops a visit. He lives in the local mountains, there was even a tad bit of snow left from the last snow he had! After we spent a few hours there we ventured up the mountain some more and let the kids roll in the big snow. But here are a few random shots of dad and his shop. Image below is what is leftover of his cedar pile of wood, he loves making birdhouses, and he sells them locally. Next up is his old 70's vintage Craftsman Band Saw And a late model Craftsman Contractors Table Saw he uses for secondary cuts or he
  22. "Back From the Archives" Hi, I am about to undertake the restoration, and upgrade of a Delta model 700 Scroll Saw. This model was available from 1931 to 1937 in the Delta catalogs. I have two of these saws, and will be using the best parts from both units to complete one machine. Both of the machines as I received them either had the upper blade chuck missing or broken, so this is where the upgrade part of the restoration comes into play. I will be using the plunger bearing, shaft, and upper blade chuck from a later model Delta Scroll saw to replace what I have found to be a r
  23. "Back From The Archives" Dateline: July,14,2012 , Location S.E. Wisconsin, Your roving "Old Machinery" reporter, has photograped a 1931-1937 Delta Specialty Co. Model # 700 Scroll Saw.....Yeah, I know " Big Deal ".... What's so special about spotting a Delta Specialty Co. Model # 700 Scroll Saw? A cast iron tabled with miter gauge slot, Model # 700 Scroll Saw that's what! Wait a minute.....A what?.....As found in the wild.....
  24. "Back From The Archives" So did Santa treat you all well? He left me a new-old crew member. So without further ado here's the newest-old member of my old machinery work crew! It's a model 785 Delta 10" bandsaw that was available between 1931-1937. This is an early version of the saw due to the stamped steel wheels, later versions had cast wheels. It will need to have the resto-mod treatment done to it to get it running again, but that's half the fun of owning old machines. I'll be upgrading the blade guides to the ones from a 1950's Homecraf
  25. "Back From The Archives" Hi, Neighbor across the highway was having a rummage sale today, so I walked accross the highway. This is what I found. Complete with bulb, but missing mounting bracket, and heat shield. How about that, the bulb works! Oh well, I guess I paid too much......................................... $2.00
