    Editorial Review

    There's not much a band saw can't do--if you have one already, we bet you love it. It's an amazingly versatile tool and, quite honestly, offers the most fun in a shop. This Shopmaster model is a great first band saw for the home shop because it's powerful, compact, and has features you get on the big boys. You've got 9 inches from frame to blade, and the ribbed aluminum table offers a miter gauge slot and a rack-and-pinion, table-tilt mechanism for precision adjustments from 3 degrees left to 45 degrees right. A 1-3/4-inch dust port will draw the chips and dust away from your sight line when connected to your shop vacuum or your dust collection system, and a flex-neck lamp that's right on the housing keeps everything in the light. We love this for its compact size--20 by 30 inches--and its light weight--just 33 pounds--so even the smallest shop owner can have fun cutting curves. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    • Rack and pinion upper blade guide adjustment for proper blade positioning

    5-0 out of 5 stars Don't believe the others... Really nice saw for the $$$
    I was in the markey for a scroll saw originally, but when I saw the $97 price tag and availablility of 1/8" wide blades I couldn't resist.

    I read all the reviews here and believe that improper setup and ignorance are to blame for many of the problems.

    For me I have had little problems. I set the saw up, adjusted it and went to town. My first victim was a 4x4 peice of Redwood (3+1/2x3+1/2 actually). I clamped a small peice of oak for a fence and shoved the redwood thru. I was trimming a 1/4" peice off of the edge. Went right thru like butter, and stright too. Also the noise didn't change much when cutting, something that I had expected to happen. Not the cleanest cut in the world but a little hand planing and sandpaper can make quick work of that.

    Here is what an old-timer at the BORG iI got the saw from told me about adjusting band saws:

    All blades usually track a little. And too much tension on the blade will make it worse. Follow the direction and only tighten that knob 3 turns for the 1/4" blade! I know it seems loose but I have never had it come off.

    Second about the tracking there is a easy way to deal with that. First get a peice of fairly soft wood, Pine will do, about 3/4 to 1 inch thick. Start a cut freehand right down the middle. If your blade is tracking it will want to twist the wood a little, let it twist. After going about 5-6 inches into the wood turn the saw off, but dont move the wood. Take a pencil and mark the table from the egde of the wood. That line will be at a slight angle to your blade, depending on how much trackning your blade has.

    Now when you setup a fence just align it with that mark, super straight cut everytime.

    Of course of you change blades or reset the tension you will have to make a new alignment mark on the table, thats why you use a pencil :).

    I havn'e tried curved cuts yet, but I did get a 1/8" blade for just such an occasion. At 5 bucks that blade was pretty cheap.

    So for the price and quality of the Delta BS100 I give it 5 stars.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Someday I'll learn.....
    Someday I'll learn to quit buying tools at pawnshops. I will occasionally spend an afternoon going thru several of the local one's, primarily looking for hand tools. But once in awhile I find a good power tool and you can usually bargain em down in the asking price. That was the case with this little bandsaw. I have a Jet 14", that I use a lot, but have wanted a smaller saw so I could do smaller pieces. Don't really want to invest in a scroll saw but it may come to that.
    This saw looked as if it had never been used. Maybe that was a warning sign. It looks cheaply made, but hey...just want it for making small stuff.
    Changing blades on this thing is a real pain. You think you have it tracking right and start a cut and the blade comes off the wheels. The blade guides don't guide very well, and won't stay adjusted. The light is a pain, it keeps migrating down as the saw runs and you have to push it up out of your way constantly.
    If you lean on the table at all it will move...afraid to tighten the adjustment anymore than I have...I'm sure the screws will strip out.
    Can't comment on the motor as I have not been able to use the machine enough to find out if it will cut well thru hardwoods or not. It's fairly noisy for its size and vibrates quite a bit. Had to shim one of the wheels to get it in line with the other and it also seems a bit out of round, thus the vibration. There is a definite "hitch" you can feel when the saw is running.
    I spent 4-5 hours messin with this little saw and couldn't get it to function correctly. I've got quite a bit of experience with bandsaws, and a couple of really good bandsaw books, but even with all that, I couldn't get this saw to work properly.
    In the last couple years I've had several Delta "lemons" but this one really tops the list. I only paid half the list price for it so I guess I'm not out much. I think I will put this saw in the dumpster and chalk it up to lesson's learned. Can't recommend this tool.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money
    The name BS100 says it all or rather a $100 piece of BS.This saw is great for everyone who would rather not cut a straight line, or be able to see their work as it vibrates back and forth.Now dont get me wrong, I am a huge fan of Delta and have outfitted my shop with many of their products, but I really, really regret ever cheaping out and getting this useless pile of plastic and aluminum.

    I haved owned mine for about 6 months and have yet to adjust it to where I can resaw anything other than pine.If you want a decent bandsaw save your money for a little while longer and get something other than this saw. ... Read more

    Editorial Review

    We did a double-take when we saw the price on this incredible set of tools. It’s everything you need for home do-it-yourself projects and woodworking, but Delta’s quality makes us think even the contractor couldn’t go too far wrong with this set as a back-up. You could build a deck or frame a room with nothing but the tools in this kit and a level (which, if anyone from Delta is reading this, would be the perfect addition). Applause to Delta for wrapping each tool handle in a nice ergonomic grip material. Aside from that, here’s what we particularly like about each tool: The circular saw is easy to maneuver, not cumbersome and clunky like others we’ve handled. There’s a nice, clear line of sight at the cutline, and kudos to Delta for including a carbide blade rather than high-speed steel—-a nice touch. The pitch of the front handle gave us a great, secure grip. The jigsaw blade changes easily, the trigger’s comfortable and there’s plenty of power. The cordless sander feels great in hand, and we can imagine the projects we could take that to without dragging an extension cord. The 24-position clutch drill, which will probably be the most-used tool of the bunch, has great balance and a comfortable grip. It’s relatively compact, making it perfect for those with smaller hands. Convenient little bit holders right on board, too. The flashlight’s a fine little worker, but there are no outstanding features we could see. But the brad nailer, for us, is the cream of this crop. It’s the answer for those who’ve always wanted a nailer but didn’t want the requisite compressor, too. It’s reliable, powerful and heck, we’ll admit it, fun to use. We like the range of brads it’ll drive, too. This is a fantastic collection of tools you just can’t go wrong with.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars My husband is jealous!
    My husband poo-pooed this purchase until he heard the price. He thought it cost over $450.00. I'm so glad that I got it before Amazon ran out. Tyler tool still has reconditioned kits on it's web site. This combo is just about everything a girl could ask for in a tool kit. The circular saw is smaller than Mac's big one and I can do things on my opwn. We are building a now house and I think this kit is wonderful.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very decent set for the DIYer or amateur craftsman
    I picked this up at a closeout sale about a year ago and have been very satified with the quality and value of this set.I've dropped the drill/driver many times and it still functions beautifully.The batteries keep a good long charge, often last several days with medium usage and several weeks while not in use.I've used every tool in it numerous times on home improvement and woodworking projects.The batteries are heavy, as expected for 18V, but the tools are ballanced well with the batts attached.The sander is the best cordless I've ever used, including some fairly expensive ones.My only complaint is that the flashlight doesn't put out much light for 18V, and is very awkward if you're trying to carry it around.Really, though, the set would be more than worth it w/o the flashlight, so it's a pretty minor annoyance.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Maybe not the BEST, but don't shy away because of price
    Just picked this up (at a local store) as a back-up set for my Porter Cable kit which is running out of batteries and I'm not sure that I want to fork out the money for new 19.2v replacements! Anyway, I bought this set for less than 2 new PC batteries. Not expecting much, the quality of the Delta kit skocked me! The plastic is high grade, the blades mount easily (saws) with included hex wrenches, the drill is powerful and feels good, and overall I am quite impressed. I highly recommend this set to any home owner or light duty handyman. A couple of gripes: 1. you have to remove the battery from the drill to get it in the case (this is your most used tool folks) and 2. the kit should come with 3 batteries. I haven't seen extra batteries for sale yet so that might be an issue down the road. Overall very nice. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Perfect Fit...
    I just bought a Delta TS300 10" table saw (use to be called a model 36-600, by the way) and started looking for dado sets and dado inserts.The Delta website is either perfectly useless or outright wrong when it comes to cataloging the correct accessories for each table saw.So I took my standard insert over to my local tool dealer and asked him to match it up with the correct dado insert.It took him all of 30 seconds to figure it out.
    The 34-672 Dado Head Insert is the one to get for the following 10" Delta table saw models: TS300, 36-600, 34-740, and 34-670.
    And don't be fooled into buying an 8" dado blade set just because the insert opening is big enough for it.If the motor is less than two horsepower (2 HP), then you should stick with a 6" dado blade set.Anything under 2 HP is considered "underpowered" for an 8" dado.Remember, you now have alot more metal spinning on that arbor, so don't burn out a $... motor just to impress your friends and neighbors.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Bad info on the Delta Web Site
    I recently bought a Delta 36-650 10 inch table saw.After looking on the Delta web site, it listed this Dado Insert (34-672) as the correct one for this saw.Well, it was wrong.The correct dado insert for the 36-650 saw is the 34-264 (for 7-8 inch dados), there is a seperate part for 10 inch dado blades.So...I guess I'll be sending this one back...:( ...

    Right up there with "Did I leave the burner on?" on the list of nagging questions, "Did I leave the garage door open?" vexes even the most responsible of homeowners. That's why anyone with a garage should consider hiring a sentry--a Garage Sentry, to be specific. With a wireless range of up to 300 feet, the Garage Sentry monitors whether a garage door is open or closed, then alerts the homeowner of the door's status with a single beep. Installation is easy, too--simply attach the battery-powered sensor to the inside of a garage door and plug the receiver into an electrical outlet. One receiver can monitor up to four garage doors at once. Considering the number of valuable items stored in a garage, why not rest easy and let the Garage Sentry keep an eye on things? ...

    • Know whether your garage/shop/business overhead door is up or down from anywhere in your house
    • Prevent the number one method of home theft by keeping your garage door closed
    • Up to 300 feet of range without wires between the receiver and sensor
    • Easy installation - just mount the sensor on your garage door and plug the receiver into any electrical outlet inside your home

    I love this item.Have had it for two years.My garage door was left open all night lots of times because I forgot it was open.Now the sentry tells me when the door is open.It works really good.I consider it a "must have" for folks with attached garages where they can't see their garage doors to know if they are open or not.Have also given this as a gift and everyone we give it to loves it.

    Editorial Review

    Delta has done it again. The TP400LS 12-1/2-inch planer is a solid addition to the company's already stellar lineup of planing tools, and it is ideally suited for the home woodworking enthusiast looking for a good planer at an affordable price. Like other Delta planers, this Shopmaster model is designed to provide smooth results, superior snipe control (thanks to the four-post cutterhead support system and headlock), and fast, safe, and accurate blade changes. Powered by a 15 amp, 120-volt single-phase motor, the planer generates an operating speed of 8,000 rpm. As materials pass into the unit, two double-sided, reversible knives deliver a blazing 51 cpi to smooth rough surfaces and provide an attractive finished result. The double-sided steel knives come factory-indexed and fit directly on machined posts in the cutterhead, so there's no fiddling with knife-setting fixtures or tricky gauges. Plus, a magnetized blade-removing tool makes it a snap to get the blades out. Delta has also extended the infeed and outfeed tables on this unit to 28-1/2 inches to better support stock and included a sturdy stand to give you the option of making this a freestanding unit. --Carl Thress ...

    Features

    • Complete with a stand and extra set of reversible knives
    • 15-amp motor for maximum power
    • Advanced cutter head lock for superior snipe control

    • Longer chrome in-feed and out-feed tables

    3-0 out of 5 stars Hindsight is 20/20
    If I had prior experience with this piece of equipment, I would not have purchased it and instead would have considered and saved for either a Grizzly or Yorkcraft 15" induction motor powered planer. I have run masses of wood through this planer since I purchased it over a year ago and have a lot to say about it. I am going to (unfairly) review it as a permanent fixture in a woodworking shop, as this is the experience I have with it and I believe most folks purchase this unit for this purpose, even though I know it is intended by the manufacturer to be a portable, on-the-job unit.
    Before purchasing this planer, consider the following:

    Price:
    The price of this unit is reasonable compared to similar manufacturer's products, but for an extra couple hundred bucks (or more), you could do substantially better.

    Usage:
    Are you going to use it occasionally, or will you need to plane more than 50 or 60 board feet of lumber a week? When I say 50 or 60 board feet, I mean 50 or 60 surface feet that comes in contact with the planer blades; i.e. 20 bft. of lumber run through the planer 3 times would equal 60 bft. planed. I would recommend no more stress than that on this machine if you want to use it for the long haul. I would also not recommend planing anything over 7 or 8 inches wide or longer than 10 feet - you will have power and/or stability problems.

    Performance:
    I'm not sure what the horsepower rating on this universal motor is, but it bogs down noticeably on regular cuts with any stock over 7 or 8 inches wide. The sharper the blades, of course, the less of a problem this is. With anything wider, I would recommend very, very shallow passes.
    I have an issue with the belt drive that operates the cutter head. The nut that holds the flange keeps coming loose and I have to tighten it occasionally. There is no good way to lock the cutterhead to get good torque on the nut. Torquing too hard (which is not very difficult to do) results in the cutter head safety device suddenly disengaging. This loosening of the flange nut has shredded the belt (I have a new one waiting in the wings - a $16 replacement) and causes a grinding sound like the unit is going to fly apart at any time.
    The other issue I have had with it is the cutter head locking mechanism that is intended to prevent snipe. The cutter head is raised or lowered by a threaded rod that has a handle that extends to the top of the unit. Spin it one way to raise, the other to lower. The cutter head lock tightens down to prevent the cutter head from moving up or down and minimize snipe somehow. I'm not sure exactly how this works. The other thing it does, incidentally, is keep the cutter head from vibrating the threaded rod and causing the cutter head to rise as the threaded raise/lower rod spins loose. I began to notice that after planing say, 8 or 9 boards, the thickness of the last board as it came out of the planer was greater than the thickness of the first board that went through. After checking it out, I noticed that even with the cutter head lock cranked down as hard as I could get it, I could still somewhat raise or lower the cutter head with the raise/lower handle. I disassembled the cutter head lock and saw that there are flat bars that run up and down that the lock clamps onto (2 on each side of the unit). I took some 100 grit sandpaper and roughed up the bars. Now I can't raise or lower the head with the lock cranked down - good.
    The finish this planer leaves on the wood is respectable. With sharp blades, it is difficult to detect milling marks. There is some snipe, sometimes less, sometimes more. Supporting the end of the board level with the infeed and outfeed table minimizes snipe noticeably.
    One other thing you should know about this planer, especially if you purchase the optional dust collection hood (anyone in their right mind would use a planer or jointer without dust collection must have made a hobby out of sweeping and breathing dust), is that this unit is LOUD. I mean VERY LOUD. Do not operate this machine without hearing protection. It is twice as loud as running the flat side of a board over a jointer. For some reason, it is significantly louder with the dust collector running.

    Construction:
    I am not very impressed with the construction of this machine. For the money, it's not bad. The main frame of the unit appears to be cast iron, but everything else is, unfortunately, either plastic or stamped steel, which includes the infeed and outfeed tables, the bearing surface that the lumber slides across, legs, handles, and other latches and mechanisms. This should be expected for this price point, but not suited for anyone more active than the weekend hobbyist.
    The infeed and outfeed tables are short and feel (and look) rather flimsy. They do little to support anything over 3 feet in length. I use a portable roller stand on the outfeed side for long stock and support the end of the board on the infeed side by hand. The unit itself is quite light in comparison to the other machines in the shop, and I think that this is by design, as this unit is intended to be ported from job site to job site. As a result, the stand it came with is kind of unsteady as there is not enough weight to anchor all four feet to the ground. I have shimmed up one of the feet to prevent it from rocking. Vibration would seem to interfere with the cut quality, but I have not seen any evidence of this. The surface the machine leaves, as I said earlier, very good.

    Other points:
    Blade changing is easy. Undo some screws, pop out and replace or spin blade around (both sides are sharpened), pop back in, tighten, and go. No adjustments. The downside is, the blades are unsharpenable. Once both sides are dull, toss it out. I have attempted to sharpen the blades with one of those handheld deals that you slide back and forth across the blade, but this does nothing. They are not intended to be sharpened. The cost of replacements is probably what you would have to pay a sharpener for sharpenable blades, so this is not so big a deal.
    The carrying handle doubles as a return roller, which means if you have to run a piece through the planer more than once, you can set it on top of the handle and roll it back ot the infeed side. Small feature, but I use it quite a bit for long stock.

    Overall impression:
    The machine is good for the occasional user, but if you are getting to the point where you are surfacing a great deal of rough lumber or working with heavy, long, or wide stock, you may want to consider a "real" planer, like a Yorkcraft YC15P ($800 + shipping) or Grizzly G0551 ($750 + shipping). If your budget won't allow it, look at the Dewalt 13" portable. It looks SOLID and I've heard a great many good things about this unit. I think it goes for around $500.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Quite useful
    After usuing this product for just over a month, I can safely say that this was an excellent purchase. Setup was fairly simple, (The stand took the longest) and the planer was all adjusted properly. After a month of use, everything is still in excellent conditon, and its still running strong. Overall, another quality product from Delta. Highly reccomended for a small shop or the do-it-yourselfer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not too bad!!!
    I've used this little planer for over 3 years now.I've ran dozens of different types of wood through it and really have not had a lick of trouble from the machine except that when trying to run the heavy, dense woods through, it sometimes requires a helping hand to push through.I've never had any problems with burning or snipe.Everything was aligned and adjusted out of the box, just unpack, plug in and go.If this machines dies tomorrow, I feel like I've gotten my money's worth from it.But, it's still going strong and is working as well as the day I brought it home.I would recommend it and I would buy it again after 3 years of regular use.I probably would rate this machine at 4 and a half stars, not 5 because of having to help with the infeed of heavier woods...not a big deal at all, just know about. ...

    2-0 out of 5 stars Delta's Black Sheep
    I received this saw for Chrismas.It arrived in good condition, but there are a number of very disconcerting aspects to it.

    The saw is manufactured in Taiwan - not in the USA (like the unisaws).According to Jason Carpenter of Delta (1-800-368-1487x3143) it was designed for the Canadian market and brought down to the states to compete with Jet.Not being a unisaw, there are a number of changes.

    First, the throat plate is different and unique from *all* of the Delta table saws (cabinet/contractor). At present, you cannot purchase a zero clearance throat plate for it.

    Second, the base dimensions are different.I purchased a mobile base with extension (50-289) and it does not fit.Delta has the square section (50-729) which you can order for $121.01.It is not yet listed on their web site or any other site I've seen.The extension (50-284) is an extra $113.30.I plan to modify the 50-289 to fit my needs.

    In the spec sheet, the max dado width is 15/16".They don't mention that you need a special arbor to cut this dado with - and you can't leave the special arbor on as it will hit the underside of the table for deep angled cuts.

    Another complaint I had was that the cast iron extension wings were not perfectly flat.I had the front and back flush, and had a lit in the middle of about two sheets of paper.In the end I was able to flex it mostly flat at the recommendation of the Delta service center.

    What has been most frustrating is the customer support on this saw.I've called Delta several times and the person on other end usually says, "Wow, this saw is brand new.I've never heard of it.Let me see what the manual says."On the mobile base, I called specifically to ask if the 50-289 would work - and was told yes.

    I plan to keep this saw as I believe it is worth the money and I don't want the hassle or added cost of shipping it back in excange for a true unisaw; I would however stongly recommend getting a unisaw instead of this one.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic saw at a great price!
    Got this saw for Christmas (a few days early).I have a Delta contractors saw that was pretty nice but still not a cabinet saw.Having used a friend's Unisaw off and on for years I was very familiar with the quality.But wow, is this a great saw!

    I'm still not sure what, if any, difference there is between this saw and the Unisaw.Everything seems exactly the same to me.The only thing missing is the extension table.You have to build your own for this one.For the several hundred dollars in savings I didn't mind at all.

    The saw arrived in good condition and assembled without much trouble.They recommend two people due to the weight but I did it all alone without a lot of trouble.The assembly instructions are simple and easy to follow.They even include extra bolts and screws and the hardware you need to attach the extension table you build.Also include a diagram for building the extension table.

    The main table was perfectly flat and nothing required adjustment.The two cast extension wings are both not quite perfectly flat but are so close it doesn't cause any problems.

    If you're familiar with Biesmeyer you already know how great their fences are.If not, then you're in for a pleasant surprise.

    The only negative I've encountered is the switch location.It just doesn't work where it is and there was no bracket included for moving it out on the fence where it needs to go.I build my own bracket but I assume you can order one from either Delta or Biesmeyer.In any case, this was not enough of an issue to cause me to rate the saw less than five stars.

    Plenty of power, precision cuts, and with the addition of an Osborne miter guide this is just the perfect saw for me.

    If you're looking for a great price on a truly exceptional piece of equimpment built to last a lifetime, then look no farther.This is it. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Really two machines of vastly different quality
    I agree with Mr. Stocker that this machine has seen its day in the American woodshop, and for more reasons than price or overqualification.Not too many years ago the American abrasives market was pretty primitive, and because of the wide availability of 6x48 belts, and because there is no better 6x48 sander on the market, I would have recommended at least the belt sander module without qualifications.Now, with the advent of the internet and retailers like Klingspor, if I had an opportunity to trade this machine for a good edge belt sander, I would do so.

    The belt sander deserves 5 stars and 3 stars is a gift for the disk sander.

    The belt sander holds belt tracking very well, altho switching from horizontal mode to vertical requires resetting of the tracking.Delta has for decades stocked a wide assortment of accessories for their machines, but each one has to be evaluated on its merits.The dust port is an odd size, but rather easily bushed to receive a shop vac hose, which provides adequate dust control.The Delta dust control accessory transitions to 5", and the industry standard now is, of course, 4".In 1996 I thought the auxiliary fence was rather expensive.The wooden fence was solid, of some species like alder, and out in winding over 1/4", so I had to make my own fence of Baltic birch ply.I would rather Delta had just sold me raw Chinese castings at a good price. With the auxiliary fence and outboard rollers I have often finished very long and thick stock and for the shop with limited space the belt sander can fill the role of an edge sander very successfully. For rounding exterior curves I greatly prefer the edge sander in the vertical mode to the disk sander.The auxiliary table has good adjustable stops for 90 and 45 deg., tho they are finger pinchers. When the auxiliary table is not attached, there is a large hole in the casting which lessens the force of dust control, but this can be easily masked with a scrap of wood.

    At the time I bought my machine (1995) Delta made the disk of steel.On my machine the disk nonconcentricity is .010 and it flutters .011.When Delta told me this is "within tolerance" they basically blew me off.I believe all disk sanders to be obsolete technology.Removing a disk to change grits ruins the old abrasive, any runout makes fine work difficult, and the table is symmetrical, ignoring the fact that all work takes place where the abrasive is moving down. The table has no angle stops.Neither auxiliary table is t-slotted for modern miter gauges.Dust control is nonexistent and requires uncommon resourcefulness, or expensive Delta accessories, to attain.

    I sometimes see the belt sander alone on the used market for ca. $300, and for the shop with limited space or a product mix of predominantly small parts, that is good machine value.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific Floor-model Sander
    I've had one of these wonderful sanders in my shop for over 20 years.Delta wanted $125 for their dust pickup accessory for the disc - probably because they made it out of cast iron.So, I fashioned one out of polycarbonate for much less cost - the only change I've made to the tool.Except for occasionally replacing (or cleaning) the belt or disk, there is zero maintenance. Changing either takes 5 - 10 minutes.You can reuse the 6" x 48" belts, but since the disk sandpaper sticks on, once you scrape it off, it's history.Using good quality sandpaper, you can extend the paper's life by vacuuming it and using one of those cleaning sticks, when necessary.

    I've used this heavy-duty professional-grade tool many hundreds of times, and don't think anything needs improvement.The nicely machined cast iron tables are solid, easy to adjust to any practical angle, and they stay put when you tighten them down.Each has convenient miter slot.The 6" belt mechanism can be set to 90 degrees (vertical, for most work), or level, or any point in between.The only thing mildly tricky is adjusting belt tracking, necessary when you change belts - I wrote what the two belt knobs do in magic marker on the machine's side, which solved that issue.

    This tool can remove stock faster and with greater precision than other sanding methods, plus it does things no other shop tool will do, does them well, and in reasonable safety.I could give dozens of examples, but here's just one -- yesterday, a 12" piece of oak base molding only touched that wall section at its ends because the wall bowed inward.Using the sander, I quickly taper sanded the reverse side/ends of the piece, so it fit flush against the wall.This tool can be used for quick stock removal (using rough paper), delicate removal, and everything in-between.It has all the power needed, and the motor has never even slowed down, even when pressing the stock hard against the paper.If your work shop is a bit cramped, put the machine on a mobile base.

    One safety note:Big sanders can create huge volumes of very tiny / lung-unfriendly dust, so my advice is to use a dust collection system with HEPA bags.For big jobs, I also turn on the work-shop exhaust fan and wear a quality respirator.The hood at the top of the 6" belt keeps much of the dust from flying off. With the dust pick-up accessory installed for the disc sander, two 4" suction hoses are needed; one for the belt and one for the disk.If your central dust machine has a 6" inlet, as mine does, two 4" pickups provide better air-flow than on sanders with a combined 4" pickup for the belt & disc, such as the Powermatic model 31A.

    This is an indispensable tool for the serious wood worker, metal worker, or handyman.I own a dozen Delta tools, and this one of my favorites.

    5-0 out of 5 stars metal and wood sanding
    I first used this machine in a machine shop in the 60's.I now us it in my own shop.I do both wood and metal sanding.it is designed for the metal shop.It is more than one needs for wood.
    I see that Delta makes a wood table for the disk that you can buy now. It is like the one thay have on there sanding center.This is good for small parts.If you have long parts get a horizontal 40in belt sander.This machine is heavy duty and the disk and belt run at different speeds.No small machine shop shoud be with out it.I wish I had purschased it 30 years ago.Happy days working in your shop. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
    The DesignTech model 33370 driveway monitor is a great product.Clear and concise instructions made the installation quick and easy.

    The sending unit is located 500 feet from our house at the entrance to our driveway.It has detected every vehicle using the factory supplied sensitivity settings.We have not had any false alarms.

    We first mounted the sending unit on the supplied stake.To make it less visible, we remounted it on the side of a small building close to the driveway entrance.It works perfectly in either location.

    I would recommend this monitor to anyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A reliable driveway monitor that actually works!
    I have spent several hundred wasted dollars and many trial-and-error hours over the past few years trying to get a reliable driveway monitor. Problems encountered in past have included short-range/unreliable wireless transmitter function, many false alarms caused by animals, wasps, wind moving tree branches, even fast moving clouds causing rapid sun heating changes, etc. Finally, got one that works satisfactorily. This specific unit (don't know about their other models which ARE different), the DesignTech "Deluxe Driveway Monitor model 33370," is excellent. Well designed, well constructed, very simple/easy/quick installation, unique patented technology (different from all other motion sensors I've tried); and most impressive, it really does what it is advertised to do. Plenty of reliable range between the transmitter and receiver, zero false alarms, and always detects cars in the driveway. Some suggestions for anyone purchasing one of these: 1) If possible, install the transmitter/motion sensing unit on the side of the driveway nearest your house so that the passing car will not tend to block the path between the receiver and transmitter. 2) Don't unfairly judge the unit by testing it inside the house; nearby indoor metal (stove, conduit in walls, overhead lights, nails, steel springs in sofa, etc.) will distort the magnetic field, and result in a negative (false) impression that it is not as sensitive as it should be. Just install it per the manufacturer's instructions, and it will detect passing vehicles as advertised. 3) The outdoor sensor is waterproof, but just to be safe I put a zip-lock bag over mine. The only question still open is battery life. I'll update this report if that (or anything else) proves to be a negative in the future. UPDATE:July 26, 2004 - Things I've learned: 1) be sure to fully tighten the case screws, otherwise unit may not be waterproof. Look into crack between front & back of case with a flashlight to be sure screws are tight enough and no water can enter. 2)don't mount sensor on a tree, even a big one. Even the slightest movement of the tree by winds can cause a false alarm. Use the mounting post provided with the unit. 3) The unit still works great, and I still recommend it.UPDATE: Feb 9, 2005 - The original batteries had to be replaced after about nine months in service.I have the unit set on the most sensitive setting, which drains the batteries the most.Next time if I only get nine months battery life, I will lower the sensitivity setting to extend battery life.When the batteries become weak, you will start getting false alarms; not a bad way to be alerted to need to change batteries.I'm still pleased, and recommend the unit. ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars solution for metric bolt
    I installed the ht. extension on 2 Delta bandsaws (@ work & home) and highly recommend it. That extra 6" sure does make a difference! The large bolt is indeed a metric size (31mm). Not wanting to go out and buy a wrench or socket that I probably would never use again, I made up my own bolt out of a length of 3/4" all-thread and a couple of nuts. Just a suggestion.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Visit the wrench guy before assembly!
    I bought this accessory, but could not find the right wrench to install it. So I visited the "wrench man" and had to buy a wrench set. The 1 1/4" wrench is slightly bigger and the 1 1/8" is too small for the nut. I suspect it is metric. Neither the instructions nor the Delta site have any info on the correct size. Using the 1 1/4" wrench I tightened it until it started to slip. But it seemed secure and the saw works perfectly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Next Best Thing to a New Saw
    If you are like me, you bought one of the 14" Delta saws with the feeling that 6" was plenty of height.This is most often because we first see a bandsaw as a useful tool for cutting up and cutting out.Evenually, the idea of resawing a costly piece of lumber occurs to us, and suddenly we are in a vertical world where 6" is a big limitation.I still had many qualms when I first considered this extension, mostly out of fear of instability and vibration.

    What I finally did was first improve the blade guides with roller bearings and balance out the wheels.And finally, with my eye on some very nice pieces of redwood burl, I bought this extension.My first reaction on opening the box was that the kit was of better quality than the original parts and a few incidents bore this out.

    There is a lot to this kit, since both the height pillar and the blade guide arm must be extended.The task though is simple (on paper, at least).Unbolt the pillar and insert the extension.You may discover that unbolting is more of a chore than you expected since the bolt is huge, and there is little space to get at it.Again, the head is unwieldy and I suggest you have a buddy or two to help lift it while you put in the extension and get it tightened up.Once you are past this point everything is a matter of following directions.It takes about two hours.

    In the middle of this I discovered that the hinge for my upper wheel was cracked and lost a few days getting it replaced.But that wasn't the kit's fault, just a combination of poor quality casting of an original part and me forgetting to back off the tension correctly when starting out.Be warned that tension is more critical when working at 12".

    Once I did get everything working and adjusted, performance has been excellent.I found no noticable difference in vibration or smoothness of cut, which is all one can ask for.In retrospect, this is an excellent investment for anyone who doesn't want the bulk of a full size 18" band saw eating up shop space.One last note - I didn't experience the cord length problem one of the other reviewers noted.But my bandsaw is a recent version which has a built in break in the switch cord.Check to make sure you have enough slack on older saws. ...

    Editorial Review

    Durably constructed with a fully enclosed 1-horsepower induction motor and a die-cast aluminum base to dampen vibration, Delta's combination belt/disc sanding station is designed to make removing both small and large amounts of material a quick and easy operation. To round corners and smooth over large curves, the 9-inch disc sander spins quietly at 2,800 rpm. Its cohort, the versatile 48-by-6-inch belt, cycles 2,200 square feet per minute over a heat-reducing graphite pad that helps increase belt life. In tests, we found it quickly adjusted from horizontal to vertical and locked easily into position for use on 180-degree curves and cutouts. The tool-free tracking knob makes it easy tomaintain belt alignment, and the cast-aluminum worktable bevels 45 degrees to accommodate angles on either surface. We found changing sandpaper on both tools relatively easy, and appreciated the integral 2-1/4-inch port for dust collection. The included steel stand is sturdy and features nonslip pads to help keep it in place. --Justin Paul ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Powerful Sander
    The Purchase/Shipping:Amazon made this easy and efficient.The price was discounted from retail and they offered a shipping incentive. The sander was shipped immediately and I received it within a few days.It was carefully packaged.

    Assembly:Fairly simple.The parts list on the first page of the manual incorrectly describes stand parts, so look carefully at the pictures in the manual, and follow the instructions.The sander itself is partially assembled and simple to complete.

    Quality:The attachments are acceptable, but some of the plastic parts are not well molded and don't fit snugly.This is not a particularly big deal, because the plastic parts aren't under stress.The stand is adequate.The rest of the machine is well-made.One caveat: there is a fairly large gap between the pressure plate and the rollers, and this allows the sanding belt to bow, which can cause ripples on the surface you are sanding.Practice with old 2x4's or other scrap to get a feel for the machine.Also, the sander I received came with one incorrectly-sized metric bolt, which held up the assembly until I found the correct bolt at a local hardware store.

    Function: A powerful machine.It comes with an 80 grit belt and disk, and it's a good idea to pick up some finer-grit belts/disks.The sander cuts fast, puts out a lot of wood dust, and is loud.If you use it in a closed area, hearing protectors are recommended for work that takes more than a moment to complete.

    Summary:Overall a good performer.The attachments, manual and stand are only adequate, but once you turn on the sander, you're too busy to worry about its details.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not as good as I'd hoped
    I always had a picture in my mind of Delta tools being the ones to buy if you could afford them. As my first Delta tool purchase this one just didn't live up to my internal hype.

    On page 10 of the manual, it says the screw for changing the position of the sanding arm can be adjusted with the supplied hex wrench, but I found that the screw was the wrong size. I called Delta and they sent the correct part (part #1346365).

    I also ran into the problem mentioned by another reviewer where the parts for the stand are labelled differently from picture to picture. Too bad I didn't read that review before I assembled the unit. It would have saved me a lot of time.

    All-in-all it seems like it will function well, but it's not as perfect as I'd hoped it would be.

    5-0 out of 5 stars great woodworking tool

    Use this saw and fall in love. Well, maybe you aren't as passionate about your power tools as we are, but this saw really is a beauty. A hungry 1-1/2-horsepower induction motor provides all the power you need to rip through any hardwood. Because it's V-belt driven, you won't feel a hint of vibration in the ample cast-iron table. Steel extensions give you a full 40-1/2-by-27-inch table surface, but your work capacity is greater than that, thanks to the heavy-duty fence system that lets you rip up to 30 inches right of the blade. We really like the new see-through blade guard because it locks in the upright position when you're changing blades--and then it releases automatically when the insert is replaced. Clever! Delta's also come up with a nice auto-set miter gauge with positive stops at 45 and 90 degrees. And this saw comes with a blade, so you can get started right out of the box, but to really let this baby rip, buy a good carbide-tipped blade and let it sing. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more

    2-0 out of 5 stars Got caught by a bargain
    This was a lot of saw for the money so I dove in. Had it a month, used it twice, the fence broke where it clamps to the rail. Bought a 50 inch fence that doesn't shift an eighth to the right when set. Running with dado blades, saw stopped. Wasn't motor. The arbor seized up. Could spin it backwards but not forwards. It tightened like a screw. Maybe there's something I don't know but it seems that that is one thing a table saw should never ever ever do. Unimpressed and worried what's next. Should have spent the extra for the 2hp General.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good Saw-Terrible Fence
    I purchased this saw because it looked like a good saw for my money.Assembly was a breeze as well as alignment.Saw cut extremely smooth until one day the locking handle broke on the fence.Apparently it is made of a very poor quality Chinese cast metal.Upon calling for a warranty replacement I was informed that it would be at least six weeks before I could get a new one.That is not what a professional woodworker likes to hear.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good saw for the money.
    I've had this saw for about four months now.Overall, I'm very happy with it and consider it very good for the price.
    There is one nit.I can't get the fence dead square and still get a good solid lock on the rail because I have to adjust it so far.
    Finally, there is one huge flaming pain, which is the blade guard.The thing is such a piece of junk that it actually makes the saw more unsafe to use... because you have to take it off or modify it to use the saw in any reasonable way. ... Read more

We especially like this mortiser because the body swings 180degrees, allowing you to work on larger pieces off the table. A rack-and-pinionmechanism raises the head easily and smoothly, and the long lever handle plunges the bitlike a dream. It's heavy for a benchtop model, but we appreciate the way the weight addsto the tool's stability. It's always fun to be able to use a tool right out of the box, andDelta's made sure you can get started right away with 1/4-, 5/16-, 3/8-, and 1/2-inchchisel and bit sets. Beats a drill and hand chisel any day! Woodworkers looking for alarge cast-iron table and gas-filled head stabilizer should consider Delta's Industrialmodel 14-651. --Kris Jensen-Van Heste ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars great quality easy setup/use
    I've had this mortise machine for a little over a year now. It has worked perfectly giving me square true mortises every time. Setup is quite simple and with a few shop made supports drillling mortises in long rails has never been easier. I've only used the 3/8", 1/4" and 5/16 chisels to date but none of them faltered. Note: pick up a set of conical honing stones from Lee Valley. Sure makes life with a sharp bit simple! Great prodcuct from Delta. Not quite as fancy as the new replacement but works just as well for a few $$ less.

    3-0 out of 5 stars OK for light duty work
    I took a chance and picked up the MM300 for $129 on closeout at one of the Big Box stores. I punched about a dozen 3/8" holes in some scrap pine - and then tried one 1/2" hole. Sheared the pin that holds the lever on, right off.

    Had it repaired, under warranty, and had it back in about 10 days.After that - stuck with 3/8" bit and did another two dozen holes in some Mahoghany.For the price I paid, I'm OK with it. But if it was the MM300 for $200, then I'd consider the 651.

    In either case - head on over to Lee Valley and pick up their conical hones to touch up the chisels before you use it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Preliminary review....
    I just last week received the mortiser, put it together.The instructions were clear, only took a few minutes to assemble.I was surprised at the quality. The quality of Delta products (and Jet) varies wildly.I got a good one, it seems.I punched a dozen holes with each of the chisels in some mahogany scrap I had lying around, all were quite satisfactory.I haven't tried it yet on any of the hard maple or oak I usually work with.I'll report back later if I have any problems.Menards wanted another [money]for their Jet model, without chisels.A set of 5 chisels is [money].The Jet I checked out in the store wasn't fit for use, sloppy dovetail, sticky slide.Be sure to get the preservative grease off the dovetail and gears, and grease it all before you use it.So far, I'm having fun drilling square holes!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Easy to install.
    It tooks about three minutes to pull off two torx screws, two phillips screws, hold the adapter in place, and put the four screws back in.I then folded the wings on the sides with a rubber mallet and this seems to have sealed it well.My only gripe is that it should have something akin to weather stripping to seal it though it's adequate as delivered.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't adapt so well
    Delta usually puts more quality into thier products. I had a bit of trouble trying to get the screw holes on the dust adapter to align with those of the jointer. Once attached, the fit was less that tight, which caused some shavings and dust to leak out when used with my shop-vac. When I hooked it up to my Jet 1100CF vac, these problems seemed to go away. ...

    1-0 out of 5 stars too much vibration and noise
    This grinder shakes so bad it breaks the light bulbs in the lamp. It lacks power and is extremely noisy, even without the wheels on it still growls so loud you can hardly hear anything else. I wouldn't recommend this grinder to anyone.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Nice grinder
    I've had this for about a year and it works pretty well for my hobbyist application.I wish it had a little more power when using the steel brush.I really like the variable speed when sharpening tools for wood turning. It helps prevent heat build up.The quick change feature and light are very useful also. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great small saw
    I have had this saw for 3 years and have framed a portable building and many other small jobs and its great. If you want a saw which will handle trim, 2x4s, and other small widths this saw is great.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good beginner, but leaves you short as you grow
    I have had this miter saw for about 8 or so years, and use it frequently for home repairs, rough carpentry and most recently woodworking projects.As a beginner it was a decent saw, I used it to frame out my entire basement and for many other projects too that didn't require a lot of precision.It is a workhorse, I've never had a problem with the motor or blade.

    But as I've gone on to more difficult and demanding work, this saw has not kept up.It was never very good at miter cuts, the detents that should click when the blade is at 45* or 90* were never accurate, and it is very difficult to make fine adjustments when swinging the saw for miter cuts, especially if near a detent (the saw will roll into the detent instead of staying where you put it).The lack of a handle in front to rotate the saw is a big disadvantage when trying to adjust the angle.You can't get any leverage on the tool to make fine adjustments.

    To add to that, it's lighty constructed and the blade wavers from side to side as you move the handle up and down by about a 16th of an inch making straight, clean cuts very difficult.Added to that, the 8.25" blade is too small to cut a 2x4 on edge against the fence, which is extremely frustrating the first time (and every time) you need to do that.

    I can't recommend to anyone to buy this saw when for only a very few more $$$ you can get a 10" CMS that will be sturdier and more than likely more accurate too.That said, if you need it for rough carpentry and never need to cut a 2x4 on edge, and don't care much if the cut edge is a little wavy and is probably off by a couple of degrees, then go ahead.Otherwise look for a different saw.

    I give it two stars instead of one because it has always been a reliable performer, even if it isn't the most precise tool I've ever owned.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great little saw
    I do mean little, because of it's size you are greatly hindered on the maximum width you can cut.This saw is great for anything narrower the 5 inches and is perfect for molding, trim and 2X4.The saw has the power to cut through whatever you need it to (within its size).Bought mine as a trim saw and mild framing saw over 12 years ago and with only a replacement of its brushes (and many blades later) it is still going strong.For a while it had to fill in for full framing work after my 10" died.If capacity is an issue get a larger saw 10" or 12", if its capacity suits your needs...this saw will handle it. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Add On
    After reading the reviews on amazon I was very confused if the sliding table attachment was the best thing since sliced bread or a hunk of junk. I must have ordered it and cancelled it three times before I finally placed my order for good.Of course I wasn't home when it came. When I got home to see the condition of the box I was a little worried.The box is very heavy and it appeared that UPS wanted to teach it a lesson for being such a pain to move.Despite the shambles of the box all the parts inside were present and accounted for and in very good condtition.

    The assembley process on my unisaw was not that difficult.The only issues are the fence rail has to be cut.Thanks go outto the guy who suggested the zawsaw to cut it off.I measured it carfully and marked it with pencil.It cut off fairly easily.I had to move the brackets which hold the rip fence down about 8 inches.There is also a saw dust "slide" inside the unisaw under the blade.The screws for this are on the outside of the saw and would have had to sit under the lower rail.I simple drilled two holes about 3/4 of an inch below the existing holes.I then took a piece of wood and pushed the slide down so that it lined up with the new holes and screwed it in.It took alot of pressure to push it down but it worked fine.

    The slide does take a little time to align, but wood workers should be used to adusting their machines.I have never had any tool that didn't need to be adjusted and re-adjusted over time.

    I have only used it a few times so far, but I think that this will be on of the best investment I made to my shop in quite awhile. I highly recommend it.

    Finally, if you use your table saw and are used to constructing things you should have no problem installing this add on.If you can'tfigure out how to put the sliding table attachment on your table saw and get it adjusted, you probably shouldn't be using a table saw in the first place!!!!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Retro-fit but Delta could have made it easier,
    I recently bought and installed the unit after reading all the reviews on this site. The message I had taken away was "good tool when set up properly but be careful."

    I installed it oon my 20 year-old Craftsman 10" contractor's saw which I had previously upgraded with a 50" Vega fence. None of the holes needed for the attachment were in the right place. I had to drill and tap 3 holes in my table casting and two (not tapped) in my base. The Delta instructions are directionally interesting but practically useless. By adding a few pages of guidelines for retrofitters, they could have helped tremendously. The kinds of things I'm talking about are pointing out which dimensions and tolerances are critical (for example, the upper bar and rail). Also some hints on how to make jigs to insure accurate drilling and tapping would have been nice. I was faced with dismatling the saw and using my drill press for the cast iron holes or doing it by hand. I took the second approach and luckily got it right. Also the conformation of my saw stand is very different from their Unisaw so I had to go get extended length 3/8" studs to align it properly.
    It ruined a day in the shop to get it set up and aligned. I only dropped the sliding unit on my head once! But once set up it has been sweet and stable.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Installation nightmare... woodworkers doing steel work
    The good news: Ordering and receiving the "Sliding Table Attachment" from amazon.com worked perfectly.The bad news:The installation is a nightmare, requiring major steel work such as drilling holes into your table saw steel base.But worse, everybody who owns a Unisaw with a Unifence Guide,such as the Biesemeyer, is expected to saw off 8" from both steel guides and in addition cut the Biesemeyer front guide bar steel box profile. If you don't like that, Delta tech support suggests to simply redrill all mounting holes and move the entire steel guide assembly 8" to the right.Never-mind, how difficult it is to match up the mounting holes with the base. Did I mention, that the existing side table has to be removed too, leaving the power switch dangling in the air.The customer service suggests to move the power switch bracket to the next screw hole, which would be in between the mount of the Biesemeyer fence, creating a gap of about 1/16", hence misaligning your guide fence.Of course, you will not find anything of this on Delta's web site. There is a small note in the instruction manual.If you think, Deta's customer service (phone support or customer service center) will help you, be prepared for a big surprise.The attitude is just as backwards as the age of the company.They really expected me to cut my table saw in half (literally speaking) and be happy with it.In summary, this attachment will only make those woodworkers happy, who also have a steel shop and don't mind doing steel design work for Delta.To be fair, the attachment is somewhat easier to install on cheaper Delta table saws. ...

    Editorial Review

    There's nothing not to love about this drill press. Longing for a variable speed drive system with a jack shaft for full torque at any speed? Got it. A hungry 3/4 HP induction motor won't bog down, and the generous 14-inch table travels like a dream with a rack-and-pinion system. Working on an intricate job or repetitive drilling? You'll love the micro-adjustable depth stop. To change speeds, you don't have to bother with wrestling belts onto spindles, because the variable speed drive system offers an infinite range of high and low speeds, from 200 to 2,500 rpm. For angled work, the table tilts 90 degrees both left and right and offers and impressive max of two feet from the chuck. At a hefty 230 pounds, you'll feel zero vibration and experience ultimate stability. And the crowning touch: a work lamp and tray, offering ease and safety.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste ... Read more
