GENERAL SAFETY RULES
READ AND UNDERSTAND ALL WARNINGS AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE
USING THIS EQUIPMENT. Failure to follow all instructions listed below, may result in electric shock,
fire, and/or serious personal injury or property damage.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
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. For additional information please visit our website www.deltamachinery.com.
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.

GENERAL SAFETY RULES
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY.
1. FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, READ THE INSTRUCTION
MANUAL BEFORE OPERATING THE MACHINE.
Learning the machine’s application, limitations, and
specific hazards will greatly minimize the possibility of
accidents and injury.
2. WEAR EYE PROTECTION. ALWAYS USE SAFETY
GLASSES. Also use face or dust mask if cutting
operation is dusty. Everyday eyeglasses are NOT safety
glasses. USE CERTIFIED SAFETY EQUIPMENT. Eye
protection equipment should comply with ANSI Z87.1
standards, hearing equipment should comply with
ANSI S3.19 standards, and dust mask protection
should comply with MSHA/NIOSH certified respirator
standards. Splinters, air-borne debris, and dust can
cause irritation, injury, and/or illness.
3. WEAR PROPER APPAREL. Do not wear loose
clothing, gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets, or other
jewelry which may get caught in moving parts. Nonslip
footwear is recommended. Wear protective hair
covering to contain long hair.
4. DO NOT USE THE MACHINE IN A DANGEROUS
ENVIRONMENT. The use of power tools in damp or
wet locations or in rain can cause shock or
electrocution. Keep your work area well-lit to prevent
tripping or placing arms, hands, and fingers in danger.
5. MAINTAIN ALL TOOLS AND MACHINES IN PEAK
CONDITION. Keep tools sharp and clean for best and safest
performance. Follow instructions for lubricating and changing
accessories. Poorly maintained tools and machines can further
damage the tool or machine and/or cause injury.
6. CHECK FOR DAMAGED PARTS. Before using the
machine, check for any damaged parts. Check for
alignment of moving parts, binding of moving parts,
breakage of parts, and any other conditions that may
affect its operation. A guard or any other part that is
damaged should be properly repaired or replaced.
Damaged parts can cause further damage to the
machine and/or injury.
7. KEEP THE WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents.
8. KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. Your shop is a
potentially dangerous environment. Children and visitors can
be injured.
9. REDUCE THE RISK OF UNINTENTIONAL STARTING.
Make sure that the switch is in the “OFF” position
before plugging in the power cord. In the event of a
power failure, move the switch to the “OFF” position.
An accidental start-up can cause injury.
10. USE THE GUARDS. Check to see that all guards are in
place, secured, and working correctly to prevent injury.

an attachment to do a job for which it was not
designed. Damage to the machine and/or injury may
result.
USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The use of
accessories and attachments not recommended by
Delta may cause damage to the machine or injury to the
user.
USE THE PROPER EXTENSION CORD. Make sure
your extension cord is in good condition. When using
an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to
carry the current your product will draw. An undersized
cord will cause a drop in line voltage, resulting in loss of
power and overheating. See the Extension Cord Chart
for the correct size depending on the cord length and
nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next
heavier gauge. The smaller the gauge number, the
heavier the cord.
SECURE THE WORKPIECE. Use clamps or a vise to hold
the workpiece when practical. Loss of control of a
workpiece can cause injury.
FEED THE WORKPIECE AGAINST THE DIRECTION OF
THE ROTATION OF THE BLADE, CUTTER, OR ABRASIVE
SURFACE. Feeding it from the other direction will cause
the workpiece to be thrown out at high speed.
DON’T FORCE THE WORKPIECE ON THE MACHINE.
Damage to the machine and/or injury may result.
DON’T OVERREACH. Loss of balance can make you
fall into a working machine, causing injury.
NEVER STAND ON THE MACHINE. Injury could occur if the
tool tips, or if you accidentally contact the cutting tool.
NEVER LEAVE THE MACHINE RUNNING UNATTENDED.
TURN THE POWER OFF. Don’t leave the machine until it
comes to a complete stop. A child or visitor could be injured.
TURN THE MACHINE “OFF”, AND DISCONNECT THE
MACHINE FROM THE POWER SOURCE before installing
or removing accessories, before adjusting or changing
set-ups, or when making repairs. An accidental start-up
can cause injury.
MAKE YOUR WORKSHOP CHILDPROOF WITH
PADLOCKS, MASTER SWITCHES, OR BY
REMOVING STARTER KEYS. The accidental start-up
of a machine by a child or visitor could cause injury.
STAY ALERT, WATCH WHAT YOU ARE DOING, AND
USE COMMON SENSE. DO NOT USE THE
MACHINE WHEN YOU ARE TIRED OR UNDER THE
INFLUENCE OF DRUGS, ALCOHOL, OR MEDICATION. A moment of inattention while operating power
tools may result in injury.
TAKE PRECAUTIONS AGAINST DUST INHALATION.
The dust generated by certain woods and wood
products can be injurious to your health. Always
operate machinery in well-ventilated areas, and provide
for proper dust removal. Use wood dust collection
systems whenever possible.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES FOR
TABLE SAWS
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY.
1.
DO NOT OPERATE THIS MACHINE until it is
assembled and installed according to the
instructions.
2.
OBTAIN ADVICE FROM YOUR SUPERVISOR,
instructor, or another qualified person if you are not
familiar with the operation of this machine.
3.
11. HOLD THE WORKPIECE FIRMLY against the miter
gauge or fence.
FOLLOW ALL WIRING CODES and recommended
electrical connections.
4.
USE THE GUARDS WHENEVER POSSIBLE. Check
to see that they are in place, secured, and working
correctly.
5.
KICKBACK IS THE NATURAL TENDENCY OF THE
WORKPIECE TO BE THROWN BACK AT THE
OPERATOR when the workpiece initially contacts the
blade or if the workpiece pinches the blade. Kickback
is dangerous and can result in serious injury.
6.
10. CUTTING THE WORKPIECE WITHOUT THE USE OF
A FENCE OR MITER GAUGE IS KNOWN AS
“FREEHAND” CUTTING. NEVER perform “free-hand”
operations. Use either the fence or miter gauge to
position and guide the workpiece.
12. CUTTING COMPLETELY THROUGH THE WORKPIECE IS KNOWN AS “THROUGH-SAWING”.
Ripping and cross-cutting are through-sawing
operations. Cutting with the grain (or down the length
of the workpiece) is ripping. Cutting across the grain (or
across the workpiece) is cross-cutting. Use a fence or
fence system for ripping. DO NOT use a fence or fence
system for cross-cutting. Instead, use a miter gauge.
USE PUSH STICK(S) for ripping a narrow workpiece.
13. AVOID AWKWARD OPERATIONS AND HAND
POSITIONS where a sudden slip could cause a hand
to move into the blade.
AVOID KICKBACK by:
A. keeping blade sharp and free of rust and pitch.
B. keeping rip fence parallel to the saw blade.
C. using saw blade guard and spreader for every
possible operation, including all through sawing.
D. pushing the workpiece past the saw blade prior to
release.
E. never ripping a workpiece that is twisted or
warped, or does not have a straight edge to guide
along the fence.
F. using featherboards when the anti-kickback device
cannot be used.
G. never sawing a large workpiece that cannot be
controlled.
H. never using the fence as a guide when
crosscutting.
I. never sawing a workpiece with loose knots or other
flaws.
ALWAYS USE GUARDS, SPLITTER, AND ANTIKICKBACK FINGERS whenever possible.
7.
REMOVE CUT-OFF PIECES AND SCRAPS from the
table before starting the saw. The vibration of the
machine may cause them to move into the saw blade
and be thrown out. After cutting, turn the machine off.
After the blade has come to a complete stop, remove
all debris.
8.
NEVER START THE MACHINE with the workpiece
against the blade.
9.
NEVER run the workpiece between the fence and a
moulding cutterhead.
14. KEEP ARMS, HANDS, AND FINGERS away from the
blade.
15. NEVER have any part of your body in line with the path
of the saw blade.
16. NEVER REACH AROUND or over the saw blade.
17. NEVER attempt to free a stalled saw blade without first
turning the machine “OFF”.
18. PROPERLY SUPPORT LONG OR WIDE workpieces.
19. NEVER PERFORM LAYOUT, assembly or set-up work
on the table/work area when the machine is running.
20. TURN THE MACHINE “OFF” AND DISCONNECT
THE MACHINE from the power source before
installing or removing accessories, before adjusting or
changing set-ups, or when making repairs.
21. TURN THE MACHINE “OFF”, disconnect the machine
from the power source, and clean the table/work area
before leaving the machine. LOCK THE SWITCH IN
THE “OFF” POSITION to prevent unauthorized use.

POWER CONNECTIONS
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your machines. This circuit should not be less than #12 wire and should
be protected with a 20 Amp time lag fuse. If an extension cord is used, use only 3-wire extension cords which have 3prong grounding type plugs and matching receptacle which will accept the machine’s plug. Before connecting the
machine to the power line, make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position and be sure that the electric current is of the
same characteristics as indicated on the machine. All line connections should make good contact. Running on low
voltage will damage the machine.
DO NOT EXPOSE THE MACHINE TO RAIN OR OPERATE THE MACHINE IN DAMP LOCATIONS.
MOTOR SPECIFICATIONS
Your machine is wired for 120 volt, 60 HZ alternating current. Before connecting the machine to the power source,
make sure the switch is in the “OFF” position.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
THIS MACHINE MUST BE GROUNDED WHILE IN USE TO PROTECT THE OPERATOR FROM
ELECTRIC SHOCK.
1. All grounded, cord-connected machines:
2. Grounded, cord-connected machines intended for use
on a supply circuit having a nominal rating less than 150
volts:
In the event of a malfunction or breakdown, grounding
provides a path of least resistance for electric current to
reduce the risk of electric shock. This machine is
equipped with an electric cord having an equipmentgrounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be plugged into a matching outlet that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes and
ordinances.
If the machine is intended for use on a circuit that has an
outlet that looks like the one illustrated in Fig. A, the
machine will have a grounding plug that looks like the plug
illustrated in Fig. A. A temporary adapter, which looks like
the adapter illustrated in Fig. B, may be used to connect
this plug to a matching 2-conductor receptacle as shown
in Fig. B if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The
temporary adapter should be used only until a properly
grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified electrician.
The green-colored rigid ear, lug, and the like, extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box. Whenever
the adapter is used, it must be held in place with a metal
screw.
Do not modify the plug provided - if it will not fit the outlet,
have the proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor can result in risk of electric shock. The
conductor with insulation having an outer surface that is
green with or without yellow stripes is the equipmentgrounding conductor. If repair or replacement of the
electric cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the
equipment-grounding conductor to a live terminal.
NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not
permitted by the Canadian Electric Code.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if
t h e g ro u n d i n g i n s t r u c t i o n s a re n o t c o m p l e t e l y
understood, or if in doubt as to whether the machine is
properly grounded.
3. 240 VOLT SINGLE PHASE OPERATION:
The motor supplied with your saw is a dual voltage,
120/240 volt motor. If it is desired to operate your saw at
240 volts, single phase, it is necessary to reconnect the
motor leads in the motor junction box by following the instructions given on the motor nameplate.
MAKE SURE MOTOR IS DISCONNECTED
FROM POWER SOURCE BEFORE RECONNECTING
MOTOR LEADS.
Use only 3-wire extension cords that have 3-prong
grounding type plugs and matching 3-conductor
receptacles that accept the machine’s plug, as shown in
Fig. A.
Repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.

It is also necessary to replace the 120 volt plug, supplied
with the motor, with a UL/CSA Listed plug suitable for
240 volts and the rated current of the saw as illustrated
in Fig. C. Contact your local Authorized Delta Service
Center or qualified electrician for proper procedures to
install the plug. The saw must comply with all local and
national electrical codes after the 240 volt plug is
installed.
The saw with a 240 volt plug should only be connected
to an outlet having the same configuration as the plug
illustrated in Fig. C. No adapter is available or should be
used with the 240 Volt plug.

MITER GAGE OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENTS
When straight cross-cutting (blade set 90 degrees to the table) the miter gage can be used in either table slot. When
bevel cross-cutting (blade tilted) only use the miter gage in the right table slot where the blade is tilted away from the
miter gage and your hands.
This miter gage is equipped with individually adjustable index stops at 90 degrees and 45 degrees right and left.
Adjustment to the index stops can be made by loosening lock nuts (B) Fig. 49, and tightening or loosening the three
adjusting screws (C) until they contact the other end of stop pin (D) when the miter gage is at 90 and 45 degrees to the
saw blade. Then, tighten lock nuts (B).
To operate the miter gage, simply loosen lock knob (E) Fig. 44, and move the body of the miter gage to
the desired angle. When the stop pin (D) is pushed in, the miter gage body will stop at 90 degrees and
45 degrees right and left. To rotate the miter gage body past these points, pull out stop pin (D).

COMMON SAWING OPERATIONS
Common sawing operations include ripping and crosscutting plus a few other standard operations of a fundamental
nature. As with all power machines, 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.
THE USE OF ATTACHMENTS AND ACCESSORIES NOT RECOMMENDED BY DELTA MAY RESULT
IN THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE USER OR OTHERS.
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. 49. The miter gage may
be used in either table slot. When bevel cutting (blade
tilted), use the table groove that does not cause
interference of your hand or miter gage with the saw
blade guard.
A
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. Never touch a
cut-off piece unless it is at least a foot long.
Fig. 49
For added safety and convenience the miter gage can
be fitted with an auxiliary wood-facing. This auxiliary
wood-facing can be fastened to the front of the miter
gage by using two wood screws through the slots (A)
Fig. 49, provided in the miter gage body and into the
wood-facing.
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) Fig. 49A can be clamped to the fence
and used as a cut-off gage. 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.
B
WHEN USING THE BLOCK (B) FIG. 49A,
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 CONTACTS THE BLADE.
Fig. 49A
22
RIPPING
A
Ripping is cutting lengthwise through a board. The rip
fence (A) Fig. 50 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
blade guard must be used. On Delta saws, the guard
has anti-kickback fingers to prevent kickback and a
splitter to prevent the wood kerf from closing and
binding the blade.
B
1. 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 (Fig. 50).
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
end of the rear 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 along the
outside edge of the fence. The cut-off stock remains on
the table and is not touched until the saw blade has
stopped, unless it is a large piece allowing safe removal.
When ripping boards longer than three feet, it is
recommended that outfeed support (B) Fig. 50, should
be extended as far out as possible to keep workpiece
from falling off the saw table.
2. 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. 51. The push stick can easily be made from
scrap material as explained in the section
“CONSTRUCTING A PUSH STICK.”
Fig. 50
Fig. 51
3. Ripping narrow pieces can be dangerous if not done
carefully. Narrow pieces usually cannot be cut with the
guard in position. If the workpiece is short enough, use a
pushboard. 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.
When using a pushboard, the width of the pushboard
must be added to the width of the rip fence position
setting. A flat pushboard can be constructed as shown in
Fig. 53 and should be used as shown in Fig. 52
Fig. 52
NOTE: Some special operations require the addition of
an auxiliary wood facing to the fence, as explained in the
section “USING AUXILIARY WOOD FACING ON THE
RIP FENCE” and use of a push stick.
Fig. 53
23
USING AUXILIARY WOODFACING ON
RIP FENCE
A
Wood facings (A) Fig. 53A are necessary on some special
operations to one or both sides of the rip fence. The wood
facing is attached to the fence with screws through the
holes in the fence. Most work will require a 3/4 " stock,
although an occasional job may require 1" facing.

B
Before dadoing, loosen wing nut (A) Fig. 54 and take
off the blade guard and splitter assembly (B). Keep
assembly handy to replace it after dadoing.
A
1. 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, (Fig. 54A). 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.
55. The saw and cutter overlap is shown in Fig. 56, (A)
being the outside saw, (B) an inside cutter, and (C) a
paper washer or washers, 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.

CONSTRUCTING A FEATHERBOARD
Fig. 59, 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. 60). Always replace
the guard and spreader assembly when the non thru-sawing operation is completed.
Kerf should be
about 1/4" apart.
