standards. Hearing equipment should comply with ANSI
S3.19 standards.
3.
4.
5.
6.
14. 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.
15. SECURE THE WORKPIECE. Use clamps or a vise to hold
the workpiece when practical. Loss of control of a
workpiece can cause injury.
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.
16. 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.
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.
17. DON’T FORCE THE WORKPIECE ON THE MACHINE.
Damage to the machine and/or injury may result.
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.
19. NEVER STAND ON THE MACHINE. Injury could occur if the tool
tips, or if you accidentally contact the cutting tool.
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.
21. TURN THE MACHINE “OFF”, AND DISCONNECT THE
MACHINE FROM THE POWER SOURCE before installing or
removing accessories, before adjusting or changing setups, or when making repairs. An accidental start-up can
cause 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.
18. DON’T OVERREACH. Loss of balance can make you fall
into a working machine, causing injury.
20. 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.
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
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.
24.
10. USE THE GUARDS. Check to see that all guards are in
place, secured, and working correctly to reduce the risk of
injury.
11. REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES
BEFORE STARTING THE MACHINE. Tools, scrap pieces,
and other debris can be thrown at high speed, causing
injury.
12. USE THE RIGHT MACHINE. Don’t force a machine or an
attachment to do a job for which it was not designed.
Damage to the machine and/or injury may result.
13. USE RECOMMENDED ACCESSORIES. The use of
accessories and attachments not recommended by Delta
may cause damage to the machine or injury to the user.
4
USE OF THIS TOOL CAN GENERATE 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 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.

OVERLOAD PROTECTION
Your saw is supplied with overload protection. If the motor shuts off or fails to start due to overloading (cutting stock
too fast, using a dull blade, using the saw beyond its capacity, etc.) or low voltage, let the motor cool three to five
minutes. The overload will automatically reset itself and the machine can then be started again by pressing the “ON”
button.
IMPORTANT: If the motor continually shuts off due to overloading, contact a qualified electrician.
RAISING AND LOWERING THE BLADE
Raise or lower the saw blade with the front handwheel (A)
Fig. 41. With the exception of hollow ground blades, raise
the blade 1/8" to 1/4" above the top surface of the
workpiece. Raise hollow ground blades the maximum
amount to provide greater clearance. To raise the saw
blade, loosen the lock knob (B) Fig. 37, and turn the
handwheel (A) clockwise. To lower the saw blade, turn
handwheel (A) counter-clockwise.
You can lock the saw blade at any height by turning the
lock knob (B) Fig. 37 clockwise. Due to the wedge action
of this locking device, only a small amount of force is
required to lock the blade height adjustment securely.
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.

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.
CROSS-CUTTING
Cross-cutting requires the use of the miter gauge to
position and guide the work. Place the work against the
miter gauge and advance both the gauge and work toward
the saw blade, as shown in Fig. 46. The miter gauge 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 gauge with the saw blade guard.
Start the cut slowly and hold the work firmly against the
miter gauge 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 gauge 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. 46
For added safety and convenience the miter gauge can be
fitted with an auxiliary wood-facing (C), as shown in
Fig. 47, 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
gauge slot is being used. This auxiliary wood-facing (C) can
be fastened to the front of the miter gauge by using two
wood screws (A) through the holes provided in the miter
gauge body and into the wood-facing.
A
C
When using the block (B) Fig. 48, as a cutoff gauge, 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. 47
NEVER USE THE FENCE AS A CUT-OFF
gauge 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 gauge as shown in Fig. 48. 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 gauge 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.

RIPPING
Ripping is cutting lengthwise through a board, (Fig. 49).
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.
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. Be sure to replace
or sharpen the anti-kickback devices when the points
become dull.
A
Fig. 49
A rip fence should always be used for
ripping operations. NEVER perform a ripping operation
free-hand.
1.
2.
3.
4.
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. 49). 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.
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.
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. 50. The push stick can easily be made
from scrap material as explained in the section
“CONSTRUCTING A PUSH STICK.”
Ripping narrow pieces can be dangerous if not done
carefully.
Fig. 50
Fig. 51
When the piece is too narrow for a push
stick to be effective - and if the workpiece is short
enough - 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. 51 and
should be used as shown in Fig. 52.
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. 53
When ripping material with a veneer facing and the
material is not thick enough for the veneer to extend over
the lip of the fence or if the veneer facing (B) is on both
sides of the material, as shown in Fig. 54, the fence can be
positioned slightly above the surface of the table. The
veneer can be placed between the fence and the table or
the veneer can straddle the fence with the material solidly
against the fence.

Fig. 54
RIPPING ON LEFT SIDE OF SAW BLADE
In some cases it may be desirable to use the fence on the left side of the saw blade. This is easily accomplished by
repositioning the fence (A) Figs. 55 and 56, fence clamp bar (B), and lock knobs (C) so that the fence (A) will be attached to
the right side of the fence body, as shown in Fig. 56. The complete fence assembly (D) Fig. 56, can easily be moved to the
left side of the saw table.

ACCESSORY MOULDING CUTTERHEAD
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. 57). 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. 57
For certain cutting operations (dadoing
and moulding) where the workpiece is not cut
completely through, the blade guard and splitter
assembly cannot be used. Loosen screws (G) and (H)
Fig. 58. Lift up and swing blade guard and splitter
assembly (W) Fig. 59 to the rear of the saw and retighten
(H).
H
Use pushsticks, hold-downs, jigs,
fixtures, or featherboards to help guide and control the
workpiece when the guard cannot be used.
NOTE: The outside arbor flange cannot be used with the
moulding cutterhead. Tighten the arbor nut against the
cutterhead body. Do not lose the outside arbor flange. It
will be needed when reattaching a blade to the arbor.
G
Fig. 58
Always return and fasten the blade guard
and splitter assembly to its proper operating position for
normal thru-sawing operations.
1. A moulding cutterhead (A) Fig. 60 is shown assembled to
the saw arbor.
The accessory moulding cutterhead
table insert (B) must be used in place of the standard
table insert.
2. When using the moulding cutterhead, add wood-facing
(C) to the face of the rip fence (Fig. 59). The wood-facing is
attached to the fence with wood screws through holes which
must be drilled in the fence. Stock that is 3/4″ inch thick is
suitable for most work, although an occasional job may
require 1 inch facing.
3. 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.
B
Fig. 59
Never use a moulding cutterhead in a
bevel position.
Never run the stock between the fence and
the moulding cutterhead. Irregular shaped wood will cause
kickback.

USING THE ACCESSORY DADO HEAD
The blade guard and splitter assembly cannot be used when dadoing or moulding. It must be removed
or swung to 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.
2.
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. 61). 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. 62. The saw and cutter overlap is shown in
Fig. 63, (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.
Attach the dado head set (D) Fig. 64, to the saw arbor.
Fig. 61
NOTE: The outside arbor flange cannot 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 will be
needed when reattaching a blade to the arbor.
The accessory dado head set table
insert (E) FIG. 64, must be used in place of the standard
table insert.
The blade guard and splitter assembly
cannot be used when dadoing and must be removed or
swung to the rear of the saw as explained previously in
this manual. Auxiliary jigs, fixtures, push sticks and
feather boards should also be used.

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.
145, 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. 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
Fig. 66
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.

outside blade flange and arbor nut. With wrench (B)
Fig. 53, on the flats of the arbor to keep it from turning, tighten arbor nut by turning wrench (A) Fig. 54
counterclockwise toward the rear of the saw.
5. Replace table insert. IMPORTANT: When installing the table insert, make certain to hold on to the blade guard.
NOTE: Use only 10" saw blades with 5/8" arbor holes, rated for at least 4000 RPM.
REPLACING BELTS AND ADJUSTING BELT TENSION
1. Open the motor cover door to gain access to the motor.
2. Place a block of wood (C) Fig. 70 between the motor and the saw cabinet.
NOTE: You may have to raise the saw arbor to insert the wooden block. Lower the saw arbor until the motor contacts
the wood.
3. Loosen the bolt (D) Fig. 70 and continue to lower the saw arbor until all tension is removed from the belts (E). Tighten
the bolt (D).
4. Raise the saw arbor slightly and remove the block of wood (C) Fig. 70.
5. Lower the saw arbor. Remove the belts (E) Fig. 71, one at a time from the motor pulley.
6. Remove the belts (E) Fig. 71 one at a time from the arbor pulley (F).
7. Install the three new belts, one at a time in the grooves of the arbor pulley (F) Fig. 71, and on the motor pulley.
8. When the new belts are installed, loosen the screw (D) Fig. 70, and carefully let the motor rest on the belts.
9. The correct belt tension shows approximately 1/4" deflection in the center span of the pulleys, using light finger
pressure.

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.
