INSTRUCTION MANUAL Limited Edition 10″″ Contractor’s Saw 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.

The distance the fence is positioned away from the blade is indicated by the two witness lines (B) and (C) Fig. 113, located on the cursor (D). The witness lines (B) and (C) indicate the distance the fence is positioned away from the saw blade. Witness line (B) indicates the distance the fence is away from the blade when the fence is in the horizontal position (Fig. 111), and witness line (C) indicates the distance the fence is away from the blade when the fence is in the vertical position (Fig. 110). To adjust cursor (D), make a test cut with the fence in either the vertical or horizontal position, measure the distance of the finished cut and move the cursor (D) by loosening the two screws (E) Fig. 113. After adjustment is completed, tighten the two screws (E). B E C D E Fig. 113 6. To remove the fence and fence body assembly (F) Fig. 114, from the guide rail, lift up on fence clamping lever (A) and turn lever (A) to the CCW indent position. The fence assembly (F) can then be pulled straight off the guide rail and removed, as shown in Fig. 114. F ADJUSTING FENCE PARALLEL TO MITER GAGE SLOTS A Fig. 114 The fence (A) Fig. 115, should be adjusted so it is parallel to miter gage slots (B). To check and adjust, move the fence (A) until the bottom front edge of the fence is in line with the edge of the miter gage slot, and push down on fence clamping lever (C). Check to see that the fence is parallel to the miter gage slot the entire length of the table. If the rear of the fence must be moved, slightly tighten or loosen one of the adjustment plugs (D) or (E) Fig. 115, using the arbor wrench or 7/8″ wrench, until the fence is parallel with the miter gage slot. IMPORTANT: DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN ADJUSTMENT PLUGS (D) AND (E) FIG. 115. VERY LITTLE MOVEMENT OF THESE ADJUSTMENT PLUGS IS NECESSARY WHEN ADJUSTING THE FENCE PARALLEL WITH THE MITER GAGE SLOT. A E B D C 36 Fig. 115 ADJUSTING FENCE 90 DEGREES TO TABLE B A Adjust the fence so that the face of fence (A) Fig. 116 is 90 degrees to the table. To check if the fence is 90 degrees to the table, place a square (B) on the table with one end of the square against the fence. If an adjustment is necessary, tighten or loosen one of two screws (C) or (D) until the fence is 90 degrees to the table. IMPORTANT: VERY LITTLE MOVEMENT OF THESE SCREWS (C) AND (D) IS NECESSARY TO MAKE THIS ADJUSTMENT. D C Fig. 116 ADJUSTING CLAMPING ACTION OF FENCE LOCKING HANDLE When the fence locking handle (A) is pushed to the down position (Fig. 117), the fence body (B) should be completely clamped to the guide rail. If the fence body (B) is not completely clamped to the guide rail when the handle (A) is in the position shown in Fig. 117, lift up the locking handle (A) Fig. 118, and slightly tighten two adjustment plugs (C) using arbor wrench or 7/8″ wrench. Adjustment plugs (C) should be tightened an equal amount. Check to see if the fence body (B) is completely fastened to the rail by pushing down on locking lever (A). Adjust further if necessary. A B Fig. 117 IMPORTANT: AFTER ADJUSTING THE CLAMPING ACTION OF THE FENCE LOCKING HANDLE, CHECK TO SEE IF THE FENCE IS PARALLEL TO THE MITER GAGE SLOT. ADJUST IF NECESSARY. C B C Fig. 118 REPOSITIONING MOTOR FOR STORAGE When the saw is not in use, the motor can be repositioned so that it hangs straight down at the rear, enabling you to move the saw against a wall. This can be accomplished by removing the belt and repositioning the motor and motor mounting plate, as shown in Fig. 119. Fig. 119 37 A 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. COMMON SAWING OPERATIONS Common sawing operations include ripping and cross-cutting, 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. NOTE: THE USE OF ATTACHMENTS AND ACCESSORIES NOT RECOMMENDED BY DELTA MAY RESULT IN THE RISK OF INJURY. 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. 120. 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 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. 120 For added safety and convenience the miter gage can be fitted with an auxiliary wood-facing (C), as shown in Fig. 121, that should be at least 1 inch higher than the maximum deth 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 A C Fig. 121 38 WARNING: NEVER USE THE BIESEMEYER F E N C E S Y S T E M A S A C U T- O F F G A G E W H E N CROSS-CUTTING WITHOUT USING (B) FIG. 121A. 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. 121A. 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 allows the cut-off piece to move freely along the table surface without binding between the fence and the saw blade, thereby eliminating the possibility of kickback and injury to the operator. Fig. 121A IMPORTANT: When using the block (B) Fig. 121A, 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. FOR UNIFENCE SYSTEMS ONLY THE UNIFENCE CAN BE USED AS A CUT-OFF GAGE 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 CUTOFF GAGE, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THE REAR END OF THE FENCE BE POSITIONED IN FRONT OF THE SAW BLADE. When using the fence as a cut-off gage, simply position the fence (A) to the front (Fig. 122), or purchase the accessory 12″ long fence (B), Fig. 123. Fig. 124 illustrates a typical operation using the accessory 12″ long fence (B) as a cut-off gage. A Fig. 122 B B Fig. 123 Fig. 124 39 RIPPING WITH THE UNIFENCE Ripping is cutting lengthwise through a board, (Fig. 125). 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. 1. 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. 125). The work can then be fed through the saw blade with one or two hands. After the work is beyond the saw blade and antikickback 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, use a work support at the rear of the saw to keep the 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. 126. The push stick can easily be made from scrap material as explained in the section “CONSTRUCTING A PUSH STICK.” 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. 126A and should be used as shown in Fig. 126B. 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 ON THE UNIFENCE” and use of a push stick. A Fig. 125 Fig. 126 Fig. 126A Fig. 126B 40 4. When ripping material with a veneer facing that extends over the material, the fence (A) should be in the horizontal position with the veneer (B) extending over the lip of the fence, (Fig. 127). 5. 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, (Fig. 128), 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, as shown. B A Fig. 127 RIPPING ON LEFT SIDE OF SAW BLADE B In some cases, it may be desirable to use the fence on the left side of the saw blade. This action is easily accomplished by repositioning the fence (A) Figs. 129 and 130, fence clamp bar (B), and lock knobs (C) so that the fence (A) will be attached to the right side of the fence body, (Fig. 130). The complete fence assembly (D) Fig. 130 can easily be moved to the left side of the saw table. Fig. 128 C C A A B D Fig. 130 Fig. 129 USING AUXILIARY WOOD FACING ON RIP FENCE Some special operations (when using the moulding cutterhead) require the addition of a wood facing (A) Fig. 130A to one side of the rip fence. The wood facing is attached to the fence with wood screws through holes drilled in the fence. Stock that is 3/4 inch is suitable for most work, although an occasional job may require oneinch facing. A Fig. 130A 41 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. Fig. 131 The moulding head consists of a cutterhead in which can be mounted various shapes of steel knives, (Fig. 131). 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. H IMPORTANT: 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. 132. Lift up and swing blade guard and splitter assembly (W) Fig. 133 to the rear of the saw and retighten (H). CAUTION: Always return and fasten the blade guard and splitter assembly to its proper operating position for normal thru-sawing operations as shown in Fig. 32 and 33. G Fig. 132 A moulding cutterhead (A) Fig. 134 is shown assembled to the saw arbor. Also, the accessory moulding cutterhead table insert (B) must be used in place of the standard table insert. H W Fig. 133 When using the moulding cutterhead, add wood-facing (C) to the face of the rip fence (Fig. 135). 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. 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. 135 shows a typical moulding operation. See accessories for molding cutterhead set. NEVER USE MOULDING CUTTERHEAD IN A BEVEL POSITION. Fig. 134 42 IMPORTANT: NEVER RUN THE STOCK BETWEEN THE FENCE AND THE MOULDING CUTTERHEAD. IRREGULAR SHAPED WOOD WILL CAUSE KICKBACK. C IMPORTANT: Special attention should be given the grain direction. Make all cuts in the same direction as the grain whenever possible. WARNING: ALWAYS INSTALL BLADE GUARD AFTER OPERATION IS COMPLETE. Fig. 135 USING ACCESSORY DADO HEAD IMPORTANT: 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. 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. 136). 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. 137. The saw and cutter overlap is shown in Fig. 138, (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 Fig. 136 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. 139, to the saw arbor. IMPORTANT: 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 B A sticks, and feather boards should also be used. Also, the accessory dado head table insert (E) Fig. 139, must be C used in place of the standard table insert. 3. Fig. 140 shows a typical dado operation using the miter gage as a guide. WARNING: NEVER USE THE DADO HEAD IN A BEVEL POSITION. Fig. 137 Fig. 138 WARNING: ALWAYS INSTALL BLADE GUARD AFTER OPERATION IS COMPLETED. Fig. 139 Fig. 140 43 CONSTRUCTING A FEATHERBOARD Fig. 141, 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. 141A, 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 must be removed. Always replace the guard and splitter assembly when the non thru-sawing operation is completed. Fig. 141 Further information on the safe and proper operation of table saws is available in the Delta “Getting the Most Out of Your Table Saw” HowTo Book, Catalog No. 11-400. Additional Information on table saw safety is also available by writing to: NATIONAL SAFETY COUNCIL 1121 SPRING LAKE DRIVE ITASCA, IL 60143-3201 44 Fig. 141A BIESEMEYER T-SQUARE FENCE SYSTEM FENCE OPERATION IMPORTANT: Before operating fence, make sure the fence is adjusted parallel to the miter gage slot, as explained later in this manual.

The distance the fence is positioned away from the blade is indicated by the witness line (B) Fig. 144, located on the cursor (C). To adjust the cursor (C), make a test cut with the fence locked in position. Measure the width of the finished cut and adjust the cursor (C) by loosening the two screws (D), adjusting the cursor (C) until the witness line (B) is aligned with the same marking on the scale as the finished cut. Tighten the two screws (D). C B Fig. 144 ADJUSTING FENCE PARALLEL TO MITER GAGE SLOTS Adjust the fence (A) Fig. 145 so that it is parallel to the miter gage slots (B). To check and adjust, move fence (A) until the bottom edge of the fence is in line with the edge of one of the miter gage slots, and push down on the fence clamping lever (C). Check to see if the fence (A) is parallel to the miter gage slot the entire length of the table. If an adjustment must be made, lift up fence locking lever (C) and raise fence up off the guide tube, (Fig. 146). Tighten or loosen one of the two adjusting screws (D) or (E) Fig. 146, using a 3/16″ allen wrench (F), not supplied. Replace the fence on the guide tube and check again to see if the edge of the fence is parallel with the miter gage slot along the entire length of the slot. Repeat this adjustment until the fence is parallel with the miter gage slot. IMPORTANT: VERY LITTLE MOVEMENT OF SCREWS (D) AND (E) IS NECESSARY TO ADJUST THE FENCE PARALLEL WITH THE MITER GAGE SLOT. A B C Fig. 145 45 E D F Fig. 146 ADJUSTING CLAMPING ACTION OF FENCE LOCKING HANDLE When the fence locking handle (A) is pushed to the down position, (Fig. 147), the fence assembly (B) should be completely clamped to the guide tube (C).
