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.
22. 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.
23. STAY ALERT, WATCH WHAT YOU ARE DOING, AND

DISBURSE DUST OR OTHER AIRBORNE PARTICLES,
INCLUDING WOOD DUST, CRYSTALLINE SILICA DUST
AND ASBESTOS DUST. Direct particles away from face and
body. Always operate tool in well ventilated area and provide
for proper dust removal. Use dust collection system wherever
possible. Exposure to the dust may cause serious and
permanent respiratory or other injury, including silicosis (a
serious lung disease), cancer, and death. Avoid breathing the
dust, and avoid prolonged contact with dust. Allowing dust to
get into your mouth or eyes, or lay on your skin may promote
absorption of harmful material. Always use properly fitting
NIOSH/OSHA approved respiratory protection appropriate for
the dust exposure, and wash exposed areas with soap and
water.
ADDITIONAL SPECIFIC SAFETY RULES
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE RULES MAY RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL 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.
FOLLOW ALL WIRING CODES and recommended
electrical connections.
4.
ALWAYS USE GUARDS, SPLITTER, AND ANTIKICKBACK FINGERS 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.
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.
11. HOLD THE WORKPIECE FIRMLY against the miter
gauge or fence.
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.
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.
22. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION regarding the safe
and proper operation of power tools (i.e. a safety
video) is available from the Power Tool Institute,

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 (s) 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 volts, 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.
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.

CHECKING BLADE ALIGNMENT
The saw has been aligned at the factory so the saw blade
is parallel to the miter gage slots; however, it is
recommended to check the alignment before initial
operation as follows:
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER
SOURCE.
1. Place a combination square (A) Fig. 35, 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. 35. Lock the
square in this position.
2. Rotate the saw blade so that the same tooth you
used in STEP 1 is in the rear position, as shown in
Fig. 36, and check this distance. Both the front and
rear measurements should be identical.
3. If an adjustment is necessary see “ADJUSTING

MACHINE USE
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.
21
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. 42. 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.
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
THE PART OF THE WORKPIECE THAT WILL BE CUT
OFF. 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. While blade is
running, never touch a cut-off piece unless it is at least
a foot long.
Fig. 42
A
For added safety and convenience the miter gage can
be fitted with an auxiliary wood-facing (C), as shown in
Fig. 43 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.
A
C
Fig. 43
B
When using the block (B) Fig. 44, as a cutoff 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.
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. 44. 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.
Fig. 44
22
RIPPING
Ripping is cutting lengthwise through a board, (Fig. 45).
NOTE: Be sure the material to be cut is seasoned, dry and
flat. 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.
A
THE SAW BLADE GUARD MUST BE
USED. ON DELTA SAWS, THE GUARD HAS ANTIKICKBACK FINGERS TO PREVENT KICKBACK AND A
SPLITTER TO PREVENT THE WOOD KERF FROM
CLOSING AND BINDING THE BLADE. BE SURE TO
REPLACE OR SHARPEN THE ANTI-KICKBACK
DEVICES WHEN THE POINTS BECOME DULL.
Fig. 45
A RIP FENCE SHOULD ALWAYS BE
USED FOR RIPPING OPERATIONS. NEVER PERFORM A
RIPPING OPERATION FREE-HAND.
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. When the rip width is 6 inches or wider,
hold the work with both hands and push it along the
fence and into the saw blade (Fig. 45). The work should
then be fed through the saw blade with the right hand.
Only use the left hand to guide the workpiece. Do not
feed the workpiece with the left hand. After the work is
beyond the saw blade and anti-kickback fingers,
remove hands from the work.
2. 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, use a work support at the rear of
the saw to keep the workpiece from falling off the saw
table.
3. If the ripped work is less than 6 inches wide, a push stick
should always be used to complete the feed, as shown
in Fig. 46. The push stick can easily be made from scrap
material as explained in the section “CONSTRUCTING
A PUSH STICK.”
4. Ripping narrow pieces can be dangerous if not done
carefully.
WHEN THE PIECE IS TOO NARROW
FOR A PUSH STICK TO BE EFFECTIVE - AND IF THE
WORKPIECE IS SHORT ENOUGH - YOU CAN USE A
PUSHBOARD. WHEN RIPPING MATERIAL UNDER 2
INCHES IN WIDTH, ORDINARY PUSH 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. 47 and should be used as shown in Fig. 48.
NOTE: GUARD REMOVED FOR CLARITY. ALWAYS
USE THE GUARD.
NOTE: Some special operations (when using the moulding
cutterhead) require the addition of an auxiliary wood
facing to the fence, as explained in the section “USING
AUXILIARY WOOD FACING” and use of a push stick.
Fig. 46
Fig. 47
Fig. 48
23
USING MOULDING CUTTERHEAD
Moulding is cutting a shape on the edge or face of the
work. Cutting mouldings with a moulding cutterhead 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, (Fig. 49).
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.

THE REAR OF THE SAW AS DESCRIBED IN “USING
ACCESSORY MOULDING CUTTERHEAD” SECTION.
AUXILIARY JIGS, FIXTURES, PUSH
STICKS AND FEATHER BOARDS SHOULD BE USED.
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. 53). 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.
54. The saw and cutter overlap is shown in Fig. 55, (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.
2. Attach the dado head set (D) Fig. 56, to the saw arbor.
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 LOSE THE OUTSIDE ARBOR FLANGE. IT

USING AUXILIARY WOOD FACING
ON RIP FENCE
When performing special cutting operations – and that
operation may cause the cutting implement to contact
the fence – it is necessary to add a wood facing (A) Fig.
58, to one side of the rip fence as shown. The wood
facing is attached to the fence with wood screws
through holes drilled in the fence. 3/4-inch stock is
suitable for most work, although an occasional job may
require one-inch facing.

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, as shown in Fig. 60, 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. An 8" high
flat board can be clamped to the rip fence and the featherboard can be clamped to the 8" high board.
Use featherboards for all non “thru-sawing” operations where the guard and splitter assembly cannot be
used. Always replace the guard and splitter assembly when the non thru-sawing operation is completed.

MAINTENANCE
KEEP MACHINE CLEAN
LUBRICATION
Periodically blow out all air passages with dry compressed
air. All plastic parts should be cleaned with a soft damp
cloth. NEVER use solvents to clean plastic parts. They could
possibly dissolve or otherwise damage the material.
Apply household floor paste wax to the machine table and
extension table or other work surface weekly.
PROTECTING CAST IRON 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.
Wear ANSI Z87.1 safety glasses while
using compressed air.
FAILURE TO START
Should your machine fail to start, check to make sure the
prongs on the cord plug are making good contact in the
outlet. Also, check for blown fuses or open circuit breakers
in the line.
