GENERAL SAFETY RULES
Woodworking can be dangerous if safe and proper operating procedures are not followed. As with all machinery, there
are certain hazards involved with the operation of the product. Using the machine with respect and caution will
considerably lessen the possibility of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored,
personal injury to the operator may result. Safety equipment such as guards, push sticks, hold-downs, featherboards,
goggles, dust masks and hearing protection can reduce your potential for injury. But even the best guard won’t make
up for poor judgment, carelessness or inattention. Always use common sense and exercise caution in the workshop.
If a procedure feels dangerous, don’t try it. Figure out an alternative procedure that feels safer. REMEMBER: Your
personal safety is your responsibility.
This machine was designed for certain applications only. Delta Machinery strongly recommends that this machine not
be modified and/or used for any application other than that for which it was designed. If you have any questions relative
to a particular application, DO NOT use the machine until you have first contacted Delta to determine if it can or should
be performed on the product.

FIVE HORSEPOWER MOTORS
The motors supplied with single phase, 5 horsepower Unisaws are designed to be operated from a 220-240 volt power
system.
The 5 horsepower Unisaws are not supplied with a power cord. They must be permanently connected to the building
electrical system and grounded according to the National Electrical Code. Since they are permanently connected to
the building electrical system, extension cords cannot be used with the 5 horsepower Unisaw.
THREE PHASE OPERATION
Three phase Unisaws are not supplied with a power cord. They must be permanently connected to the building
electrical system and grounded according to the National Electrical Code. Since they must be permanently connected
to the building electrical system, extension cords cannot be used with three phase Unisaws.
MAGNETIC PUSH BUTTON CONTROLS
If you purchased the Unisaw with a magnetic starter, transformer and overload protection (LVC), refer to the separate
electrical instruction manual supplied with the machine.
EXTENSION CORDS
Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension cord is in good condition and is a 3-wire extension cord which
has a 3-prong grounding type plug and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. When using an
extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current of the machine. An undersized cord will cause
a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of power and overheating. Fig. D, shows the correct gauge to use depending
on the cord length. If in doubt, use the next heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the heavier the cord.

BLADE RAISING
MECHANISM
E
The saw blade is raised and lowered with the front
handwheel (A) Fig. 41. With the exception of hollow
ground blades, the blade should be raised 1/8" to 1/4"
above the top surface of the material being cut. With
hollow ground blades, the blade should be raised the
maximum to provide greater clearance. To raise the saw
blade, loosen lock knob (B) Fig. 41, and turn the
handwheel (A), clockwise. To lower the saw blade, turn
handwheel (A) counterclockwise.
The saw blade is locked at any height by turning the lock
knob (B) Fig. 41, clockwise. Due to the wedge action of
this locking device, only a small amount of force is
required to lock the blade raising mechanism securely.
Any added force merely puts unnecessary strain on the
locking device. Limit stops for raising or lowering are
permanently built into the mechanism and need no
further adjustment.
C
Fig. 41
BLADE TILTING MECHANISM
The blade tilting mechanism allows the blade to be tilted
up to 45 degrees to the right.
To tilt the saw blade to the desired angle, loosen lock
knob (D) Fig. 41, and turn handwheel (C). A pointer
indicates the angle of tilt on scale (E), which is marked in
one-degree increments. To lock the saw blade in the
desired angle of tilt, tighten lock knob (D).
IMPORTANT: ALWAYS LOCK THE BLADE IN
POSITION BEFORE STARTING THE SAW.

2. Using a square, check to see if the blade is 90
degrees to the table. If an adjustment is necessary, turn
the blade tilting handwheel counterclockwise. Loosen
locknut (A) Fig. 42, and tighten or loosen adjusting screw
(B) until head of screw (B) contacts casting on front
trunnion when the blade is at 90 degrees to the table.
Then tighten locknut (A).
D
C
3. Check to see if the tilt indicator pointer points to the
zero mark on the scale. Adjust if necessary.
4. Turn the blade tilting handwheel counterclockwise as
far as it will go. Using a square, check to see if the blade
is at 45 degrees to the table. If an adjustment is necessary, turn the blade tilting handwheel clockwise until the
adjusting screw (D) Fig. 43, and locknut (C) are in view, in
the opening in the front of the saw cabinet, as shown.
Loosen locknut (C) and tighten or loosen adjusting screw
(D) until head of screw (D) contacts casting on front
trunnion when the blade is at 45 degrees to the table.
Then tighten locknut (C).
Fig. 43
ADJUSTING TABLE
The saw table has been aligned at the factory so the miter
gage slots are parallel to the saw blade; however, it is
recommended to check the alignment before initial
operation as follows:
1. DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
2. Place a combination square (A) Fig. 44, on the table
with one edge of the square in the miter gage slot, as
shown, and adjust the square so the rule just touches one
of the teeth on the saw blade at the forward position, as
shown in Fig. 44. Lock the square in this position.
Fig. 44
3. Rotate the saw blade so that the same tooth you
used in STEP 2 is in the rear position, as shown in Fig. 45,
and check this distance. Both the front and rear measurements should be identical.
4. If an adjustment is necessary, loosen the four screws
that hold the table to the saw cabinet.
5. Shift the table until a position is found which brings
the saw blade in the center of the table insert slot, and
parallel to the miter gage slot.
6. Tighten the four screws that were loosened in STEP 4.
7. Tilt the blade to 45 degrees, and turn the saw blade by
hand, and insure it does not contact the table insert.

assemble the washer and lock handle (A) Fig. 47, to the
miter gage bar as shown.
Fig. 47
The miter gage is equipped with adjustable index stops at
90 degrees and 45 degrees right and left. Adjustment to
the index stops can be made by tightening or loosening
the three adjusting screws (B) Fig. 48, with allen wrench
supplied.
A
To rotate the miter gage, loosen lock knob (A) Fig. 48, and
move the body of the miter gage (C), to the desired angle.
C
The miter gage body will stop at 90 degrees and 45
degrees both right and left. To rotate the miter gage body
past these points, the stop link (D) Fig. 48, must be
moved up and out of the way.
B
The head of the miter gage pivots on a special tapered
screw (G) that fastens the head to the miter gage bar. If
the miter gage head does not pivot freely, or pivots too
freely, it can be adjusted by loosening set screw (H) Fig.
49, and turning the screw (G) in or out. Be certain to
tighten screw (H) after adjustment is made. Your miter
gage is equipped with a plate (E) Fig. 49, which fits into
the T-Slot groove in the table. This allows the miter gage
to be pulled off the front edge of the table without falling.
This allows for a longer cut off capacity in front of the
blade.

PROTECTING CAST IRON TABLE FROM RUST
To clean and protect cast iron tables from rust, you will need the following materials: 1 pushblock from a jointer, 1 sheet
of medium Scotch-Brite™ Blending Hand Pad, 1 can of WD-40®, 1 can of degreaser, 1 can of TopCote® Aerosol. Apply
the WD-40 and polish the table surface with the Scotch-Brite pad using the pushblock as a holddown. Degrease the
table, then apply the TopCote® accordingly.
OPERATIONS
Common sawing operations include ripping and crosscutting plus a few other standard operations of a fundamental
nature. As with all power tools, there is a certain amount of hazard involved with the operation and use of the machine.
Using the machine with the respect and caution demanded as far as safety precautions are concerned, will considerably
lessen the possibility of personal injury. However, if normal safety precautions are overlooked or completely ignored,
personal injury to the operator can result. The following information describes the safe and proper method for performing
the most common sawing operations.
NOTE: THE USE OF ATTACHMENTS AND ACCESSORIES NOT RECOMMENDED BY DELTA MAY RESULT IN THE
RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS.
CROSS-CUTTING
Cross-cutting requires the use of the miter gage to position
and guide the work. Place the work against the miter gage
and advance both the gage and work toward the saw blade,
as shown in Fig. 53. The miter gage may be used in either
table slot. When bevel cutting (blade tilted), use the left miter
gage slot so that the blade tilts away from the miter gage
and your hands.
Start the cut slowly and hold the work firmly against the
miter gage and the table. One of the rules in running a saw
is that you never hang onto or touch a free piece of work.
Hold the supported piece, not the free piece that is cut off.
The feed in cross-cutting continues until the work is cut in
two, and the miter gage and work are pulled back to the
starting point. Before pulling the work back, it is good
practice to give the work a little sideways shift to move the
work slightly away from the saw blade. Never pick up any
short length of free work from the table while the saw is
running. A smart operator never touches a cutoff piece
unless it is at least a foot long.
For added safety and convenience the miter gage can be
fitted with an auxiliary wood-facing (C), as shown in Fig. 54,
that should be at least 1 inch higher than the maximum
depth of cut, and should extend out 12 inches or more to
one side or the other depending on which miter gage slot is
being used. This auxiliary wood-facing (C) can be fastened
to the front of the miter gage by using two wood screws (A)
through the holes provided in the miter gage body and into
the wood-facing.
IMPORTANT: When using the block (B) Fig. 55, as a cut-off
gage, it is very important that the rear end of the block be
positioned so the work piece is clear of the block before it
enters the blade.
Fig. 53
A
C
Fig. 54
B
WARNING: NEVER USE THE FENCE AS A CUT-OFF
GAGE WHEN CROSS-CUTTING.
When cross-cutting a number of pieces to the same length,
a block of wood (B), can be clamped to the fence and used
as a cut-off gage as shown in Fig. 55. It is important that this
block of wood always be positioned in front of the saw blade
as shown. Once the cut-off length is determined, secure the
fence and use the miter gage to feed the work into the cut.
This block of wood allows the cut-off piece to move freely
along the table surface without binding between the fence
and the saw blade, thereby lessening the possibility of
kickback and injury to the operator.

USING THE FENCE AS A
CUT-OFF GAGE
WARNING: WHEN USING YOUR UNIFENCE AS A
CUT-OFF GAGE, MAKE SURE IT IS PROPERLY SET
UP AS DESCRIBED HERE.
B
The fence can be used as a cut-off gage when cross
cutting a number of pieces to the same length.
IMPORTANT: When using the fence as a cut-off gage, it
is very important that the rear end of the fence be
positioned so the work piece is clear of the fence before
it enters the blade. When using the fence as a cut-off
gage, position the fence (A) to the front as shown in Fig.
56, or purchase a 12" long fence (B), as shown in Fig. 57.
A typical operation using the 12" long fence (B) as a cutoff gage is shown in Fig. 58.
Fig. 58
RIPPING
Ripping is the operation of making a lengthwise cut
through a board, as shown in Fig. 59, and the rip fence (A)
is used to position and guide the work. One edge of the
work rides against the rip fence while the flat side of the
board rests on the table. Since the work is pushed along
the fence, it must have a straight edge and make solid
contact with the table. The saw guard must be used. The
guard has anti-kickback fingers to prevent wood
kickback, and a splitter to prevent the wood kerf from
closing and binding the blade.
Start the motor and advance the work holding it down
and against the fence. Never stand in the line of the saw
cut when ripping. Hold the work with both hands and
push it along the fence and into the saw blade as shown
in Fig. 59. The work can then be fed through the saw
blade with one or two hands. After the work is beyond the
saw blade and anti-kickback fingers, the hand is removed
from the work. When this is done the work will either stay
on the table, tilt up slightly and be caught by the rear end
of the guard or slide off the table to the floor. Alternately,
the feed can continue to the end of the table, after which
the work is lifted and brought back along the outside
edge of the fence. The cut-off stock remains on the table
and is not touched with the hands until the saw blade is
stopped, unless it is a large piece allowing safe removal.
A
Fig. 59
Fig. 60
19
When ripping boards longer than three feet, it is
recommended that a work support be used at the rear of
the saw to keep the workpiece from falling off the saw
table.
If the ripped work is less than 4 inches wide, a push stick
should always be used to complete the feed, as shown in
Fig. 60. The push stick can easily be made from scrap
material as explained in the section “CONSTRUCTING A
PUSH STICK.” When ripping material under 2 inches in
width, a flat pushboard is a valuable accessory since
ordinary type sticks may interfere with the blade guard.
That flat pushboard can be made as shown in Fig. 61.

It is necessary when performing special operations such
as moulding to add wood facing (A) Fig. 62, to one or
both sides of the rip fence, as shown. The wood facing is
attached to the fence with two clamps (B). 3/4 inch stock
is suitable for most work although an occasional job may
require 1 inch facing.

A wood facing should be used when ripping thin material
such as paneling to prevent the material from catching
between the bottom of the rip fence and the saw table
surface.

The wood facing is attached to the fence with wood
screws through holes you drill in the fence. A suitable
stock size for most work is 3/4", although an occasional
job may require one inch facing.

Fig. 63
USING ACCESSORY
MOULDING CUTTERHEAD
Moulding is cutting a shape on the edge or face of the
work. Cutting mouldings with a moulding cutterhead in
the circular saw is a fast, safe and clean operation. The
many different knife shapes available make it possible for
the operator to produce almost any kind of mouldings,
such as various styles of corner moulds, picture frames,
table edges, etc.
The moulding head consists of a cutterhead in which can
be mounted various shapes of steel knives, as shown in
Fig. 64. Each of the three knives in a set is fitted into a
groove in the cutterhead and securely clamped with a
screw. The knife grooves should be kept free of sawdust,
which would prevent the cutter from seating properly.
Fig. 64
20
IMPORTANT: For certain cutting operations such as
dadoing and moulding where you are not cutting
completely through the workpiece, the blade guard and
splitter assembly cannot be used. Loosen screws (G) and
(H) Fig. 65. Lift up and swing blade guard and splitter
assembly (W) Fig. 66, to the rear of the saw, and then
tighten screws (G) and (H). CAUTION: Always return and
fasten the blade guard and splitter assembly to its proper
operating position for normal thru-sawing operations.

WHEN REATTACHING A BLADE TO THE UNISAW
ARBOR. ALSO, THE ACCESSORY MOULDING
CUTTERHEAD TABLE INSERT (B), MUST BE USED IN
PLACE OF THE STANDARD TABLE INSERT.
Fig. 65
It is necessary when using the moulding cutterhead to
add wood-facing (C) to the face of the rip fence, as
shown in Fig. 68. The wood-facing is attached to the
biesemeyer fence with two clamps, as shown (refer to the
Unifence section of this manual for attaching wood facing
to a Unifence). 3/4 inch stock is suitable for most work
although an occasional job may require 1 inch facing.
W
Fig. 66
Position the wood-facing over the cutterhead with the
cutterhead below the surface of the table. Turn the saw
on and raise the cutterhead. The cutterhead will cut its
own groove in the wood-facing. Fig. 68, shows a typical
moulding operation. NEVER USE MOULDING CUTTERHEAD IN A BEVEL POSITION.
IMPORTANT: NEVER RUN THE STOCK BETWEEN THE
FENCE AND THE MOULDING CUTTERHEAD AS IRREGULAR SHAPED WOOD WILL CAUSE KICKBACK.
When moulding end grain, the miter gage is used. The
feed should be slowed up at the end of the cut to prevent
splintering.
In all cuts, attention should be given the grain, making the
cut in the same direction as the grain whenever possible.

USING ACCESSORY
DADO HEAD
IMPORTANT: THE BLADE GUARD AND SPLITTER
ASSEMBLY CANNOT BE USED WHEN DADOING OR
MOULDING AND MUST BE REMOVED OR SWUNG
TO THE REAR OF THE SAW.
Dadoing is cutting a rabbet or wide groove into the work.
Most dado head sets are made up of two outside saws
and four or five inside cutters, as shown in Fig. 69.
Various combinations of saws and cutters are used to cut
grooves from 1/8" to 13/16" for use in shelving, making
joints, tenoning, grooving, etc. The cutters are heavily
swaged and must be arranged so that this heavy portion
falls in the gullets of the outside saws, as shown in Fig.
70. The saw and cutter overlap is shown in Fig. 71, (A)
being the outside saw, (B) an inside cutter, and (C) a
paper washer or washers which can be used as needed
to control the exact width of groove. A 1/4" groove is cut
by using the two outside saws. The teeth of the saws
should be positioned so that the raker on one saw is
beside the cutting teeth on the other saw.
The dado head set (D) Fig. 72, is assembled to the saw
arbor as shown. NOTE: THE OUTSIDE ARBOR FLANGE
CAN NOT BE USED WITH THE DADO HEAD SET,
TIGHTEN THE ARBOR NUT AGAINST THE DADO
HEAD SET BODY. DO NOT LOOSE THE OUTSIDE
ARBOR FLANGE, FOR IT WILL BE NEEDED WHEN
REATTACHING A BLADE TO THE UNISAW ARBOR.
ALSO, THE ACCESSORY DADO HEAD SET TABLE

CONSTRUCTING A FEATHERBOARD
Fig. 74, illustrates dimensions for making a typical featherboard. The material which the featherboard is constructed
of, should be a straight piece of wood that is free of knots and cracks. Featherboards are used to keep the work in
contact with the fence and table and help prevent kickbacks. Clamp the featherboards to the fence and table so that
the leading edge of the featherboards will support the workpiece until the cut is completed. Use featherboards for all
non “thru-sawing” operations where the guard and spreader assembly must be removed (see Fig. 75). Always replace
the guard and spreader assembly when the non thru-sawing operation is completed.
Kerf should be
about 1/4" apart.
