SOME DUST CREATED BY POWER SANDING, SAWING, GRINDING, DRILLING, AND OTHER
CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES contains chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.
Some examples of these chemicals are:
· lead from lead-based paints,
· crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products, and
· arsenic and chromium from chemically-treated lumber.
Your risk from these exposures varies, depending on how often you do this type of work. To reduce your exposure to
these chemicals: work in a well ventilated area, and work with approved safety equipment, always wear MSHA/NIOSH
approved, properly fitting face mask or respirator when using such tools.
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.

FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY, READ THE INSTRUCTTION MANUAL BEFORE OPERATING THE
MACHINE. Learning the machine’s application,
limitations, and specific hazards will greatly
minimize the possibility of accidents and injury.
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.
DRESS PROPERLY. Do not wear tie, gloves, or
loose clothing. Remove watch, rings, and other
jewelry. Roll up your sleeves. Clothing or jewelry
caught in moving parts can cause injury.
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.
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.
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.
KEEP THE WORK AREA CLEAN. Cluttered areas and
benches invite accidents.
KEEP CHILDREN AND VISITORS AWAY. Your shop is
a potentially dangerous environment. Children and visitors
can be injured.
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.
USE THE GUARDS. Check to see that all guards
are in place, secured, and working correctly to
prevent injury.
REMOVE ADJUSTING KEYS AND WRENCHES
BEFORE STARTING THE MACHINE. Tools, scrap
pieces, and other debris can be thrown at high
speed, causing injury.
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.

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.
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.

If your saw is equipped with the Delta Jet-Lock Rip Fence with round guide rails, cut 5-1/2" off of the left end of both
the front and rear guide rails. If your saw is equipped with a Beisemeyer fence, measure 1-1/2" to the left from the left
side of the table and cut the rail. If your saw is equipped with the Delta Unifence Saw Guide, cut 8" off the left end of
the front guide rail. Another option for the old Unifence is to redrill the mounting holes in the front guide rail 8" to the
left and reposition the rip scale. On the new Unifence, the rail can slide by loosening the two bolts and repositioning
the rip scale.

The right edge of the sliding table should be slightly higher than the machine table, both front and rear. To check and adjust:
1. Use the fence (A) Figs. 49 and 50 or a suitable straight edge to see if the sliding table (B) is slightly higher than the
machine table (C) at the front of the machine table (Fig. 49) and the rear of the machine table (Fig. 50).
2. The height of the sliding table is controlled by raising or lowering the two sets of upper and lower bearings that ride on
the upper guide rail (K) Fig. 51. The front upper and lower bearings are shown at (D) and (E) Fig. 51.
NOTE: For clarity, the table/lock stop has been removed from the guide rail.
3. To adjust the lower bearing (E) Figs. 51 and 52 out of the way, loosen the nut (F) and turn the eccentric (G).
4. To adjust the upper bearing (D) Fig. 51, loosen the nut (H) Fig. 52, and turn the eccentric (J) until the table is slightly higher
than the saw table. Tighten the nut (H). Readjust the lower bearing. Maintain a smooth sliding fit between the bearings
and the upper guide rail.
5. IMPORTANT: If after adjusting, the height of the sliding table is still below the machine table surface, loosen the six
screws that fasten the upper rail (M) to the mounting bracket, five of which are shown at (L) Fig. 53. Raise the rail parallel
with the table surface. Then re-adjust the bearings.

1. Confirm that the fence is attached to the sliding table and that the right end of the fence extends across the surface of
the table to the miter gauge slot.
2. Confirm that the gap between the bottom of the fence and the table at points (A) and (B) Fig. 54 is equal.
3. Move the sliding table to the front of the saw until the fence is at the front edge of the table.
4. Make any adjustments with the two nuts (C) Fig. 54. The other nut is located inside the stand or cabinet on the old style
and contractor’s saw II. (For the other machines, both nuts are located on the bracket.) Adjusting the nuts (C) will move
the lower rail (H) closer to or farther away from other side of the bracket or the stand/cabinet. Do not adjust the nut next
to the guide rail (H). Adjust the nuts until the gap between the bottom of the fence and the table is the same at points
(A) and (B) Fig. 54.
5. Move the sliding table to the rear position until the bearing (D) Fig. 55 is positioned opposite the rear lower rail mounting
bolt (G).
6. Check the gap between the bottom of the fence and the saw table at points (E) and (F) Fig. 55 to see if the gap is the
same at both points.
7. Make any adjustments with the two nuts, one of which is shown at (G) Fig. 55. The other nut is located inside the stand
or cabinet on the contractor’s saw. (For the other machines, both nuts are located on the bracket.) Adjusting the nuts
(G) will move the lower rail (H) closer to or farther away from the other side of the bracket or the stand/cabinet. Do not
adjust the nut next to the guide rail (H). Adjust the nuts until the gap between the bottom of the fence and the table is
the same at points (E) and (F) Fig. 55.

3. To adjust, loosen locknut (D) Fig. 57 and turn eccentric (E) to move bearing (F) in or out. Moving bearing (F) will raise or
lower the right end of the sliding table. After adjustment is complete, tighten locknut (D).
ADJUSTING FENCE 90 AND 45 DEGREE POSITIVE STOPS
Positive stops are provided on the fence mounting bracket of your sliding table that will enable you to rapidly position
the fence at 90 and 45 degrees to the blade. To check and adjust the fence positive stops:
1. With the fence (A) Fig. 58 in the forward operating position on the sliding table, loosen both fence locking handles,
one of which is shown at (B). Pull the left end of fence as far toward the front as possible and tighten both locking
handles (B).
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
2. Place a square against the fence and the saw blade to check for a 90 degree angle. If the angle is incorrect, refer
to STEP 4. Remove the square and connect the machine to the power source.
3. Make a test cut on a piece of stock (Fig. 59). Make sure that the edge of the stock against the fence is straight.
Check to see that the cut portion of the stock is 90 degrees to the edge of the stock (against the fence). If the cut
is not 90 degrees, refer to STEP 4.
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
4.
Loosen the locknut (C) Fig. 60 and adjust the screw (D) until it contacts the bracket (E) with the fence 90 degrees
to the blade. Tighten the locknut (C). Connect the machine to the power source, and make additional cuts until
the cut is 90 degrees.
5. After adjusting the fence positive stops, check the miter scale (M) Fig. 64. To adjust, loosen the two screws, one
of which is shown at (N). Adjust the scale (M) and tighten the screws (N).
6. Loosen both fence locking handles and rotate left end of fence (A) to the rear until the pointer aligns with the 45
degree mark on the scale. (Fig. 61). Tighten both fence locking handles.
NOTE: When moving the left end of the fence for miter cutting, slide the fence by moving the lock handle (B) Fig. 60
with your hand.
7. Make a test cut on a piece of stock (Fig. 62). (Make sure that the edge of the stock against the fence is straight.
If the cut is not 45 degrees to the edge against the fence, refer to STEP 8.
8. Loosen the locknut (F) Fig. 63 and adjust the screw (G) until it contacts the bracket (H) with the fence at 45 degrees
to the blade. Tighten the locknut (F).
9. Move the fence (A) Fig. 65 to the rear operating position by following the instructions “MOVING FENCE TO REAR
POSITION ON SLIDING TABLE” later in this manual. Tighten both fence locking handles.
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
10. Place a square against the fence and the saw blade to check for a 90 degree angle. If the angle is incorrect, refer
to STEP 12. Remove the square and connect the machine to the power source.
11. Make a test cut on a piece of stock (Fig. 66).Make sure that the edge of the stock against the fence is straight.
See if the cut is 90 degrees to the edge (against the fence). If the cut was not 90 degrees, refer to STEP 12.
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER SOURCE.
12. Slightly loosen both fence locking handles. Loosen the set screw (J) Fig. 67. Use a nail or some other suitable
instrument in the hole (K) to rotate the eccentric bushing (L) until the fence is 90 degrees to the blade. Tighten the
set screw (J). Connect the machine to the power source and make additional test cuts until the cut is 90 degrees.
