IMPORTANT SAFETY RULES
W oodworking 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 N O T use the machine until you have first contacted Delta to determine if it can or should be performed on the product.

CONNECTING MACHINE TO POWER SOURCE
POWER CONNECTIONS
A separate electrical circuit should be used for your tools. This circuit should not be less than #12 AWG and should be
protected with a 20 amp, time lag fuse. Have a certified electrician repair or replace damaged or worn cord immediately.Before connecting the motor to the power line, make certain the switch is in the OFF position and be sure that
the electric current is of the same characteristics as stamped on the motor nameplate. All line connections should make
good contact. Running on low voltage will damage the motor.
W ARNING: D O N O T EXPOSE THE DUST COLLECTO R TO RAIN O R O P E R ATE THE MACHINE IN DAMP L O C ATIONS.
M O TO R SPECIFICATIONS
The motor of the Model 50-840 Dust Collector is shipped wired for 120 Volts. Before connecting the dust collector to the
power source, make certain the switch is in the OFF position.

W ARNING: THIS TO O L M U S T B E G R O U N D E D WHILE IN U S E TO P R O T E C T T H E O P E R ATO R F R O M ELECTRIC
SHOCK.
This dust collector must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This dust collector is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and grounding plug. The plug must be inserted into an appropriate outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
W ARNING:
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric
shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded.
Do not modify the plug provided with the dust collector. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a
qualified electrician.

for use with your dust collector is shipped wired for 120
Volt, Single Phase, and is equipped with an approved
3-conductor cord and 3-prong grounding type plug to
fit the proper grounding type receptacle, as shown in
Fig. 16. The green conductor in the cord is the grounding
wire. Never connect the green wire to a live terminal.

The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet can be installed by a qualified
electrician. THIS A D A P T E R IS N O T APPLICABLE IN
CANADA. The green-colored rigid ear, lug, etc., extending from the adapter, is the grounding means and must be
connected to a permanent ground such as to a properly

The motor supplied with your dust collector is a dual voltage 120/240 volt motor.The dust collector motor is shipped
ready-to-run for 120 volt operation; however, it may be converted for 240 volt operation.
C U R R E N T C A R RYING PRONGS
The conversion of your dust collector for 240 volt operation
must be done by qualified electrical personnel. Should you
desire to have your dust collector converted for 240 volts,
take your dust collector to your local Authorized Delta
Service Center. Call 1-800-438-2486 for the location of
the nearest Authorized Service Center.The Service Center
will be able to convert your dust collector for 240 volts by
(a) re-wiring the motor for 240 volts; (b) installing a 240 volt
attachment plug to the power supply cord; and (c) replacing the single pole on/off switch shipped with your dust
collector with a double pole switch.

The dust collector with a 240 volt plug should only be connected to an outlet having the same configuration as the
plug illustrated in Fig. 18. No adapter is available or should
be used with the 240 volt plug.

Use proper extension cords. Make sure your extension
cord is in good condition and is a 3-wire extension cord
which has a 3-prong grounding type plug and a 3-hole
receptacle which will accept the tool s plug. When using
an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to
carry the current of the dust collector.An undersized cord
will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power
and overheating. Fig. 19, shows the correct size to use
depending on cord length and voltage. If in doubt, use
the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the
heavier the cord.

W e suggest that when the dust collector is not in use,
that the switch (B) be locked in the OFF position. This
can be done by grasping the switch toggle (A) Fig. 21,
and pulling it out of the switch (B) as shown. With the
switch toggle (A) Fig. 21, removed, the switch will not
operate. However, should the switch toggle (A) be removed while the dust collector is running, it can be
turned OFF once, but cannot be restarted without
inserting the switch toggle.

MAINTENANCE
NOTE: Before any maintenance or service is performed, be sure the unit is disconnected from the power
source to prevent accidental starting. All servicing other than the items recommended in this Instruction
Manual should be performed by an authorized service facility.
When storing your dust collector, remove power supply cord from the electrical outlet. Coil the cord neatly
and place it off the floor on the base of the dust collector to eliminate potential cord damage.
M O TO R MAINTENANCE
Removing dust and dirt: Blow off motor with low pressure air to remove dust or dirt. Air pressure above 50
P.S.I. should not be used as high pressure may damage insulation and blow dirt under loosened tape. The
operator peforming this cleaning function should always wear eye protective goggles. Dust can cause excessive insulation temperatures.
