Now that's a saw! The new innovations are fantastic and should certainly help offset what is sure to be a higher price.

Had they done something like this BEFORE sending production overseas they likely wouldn't have taken the hit on their reputation that they have.

There will always be a market for high quality innovative tooling.

I bet this saw ends up being a big time winner for them. Too bad (for me) that a table saw is something I only buy every 15yrs or so...

Thanks Darryl, I think they have made a couple of nice improvements. I nothing else it looks nicer.

“built and assembled in Jackson, Tenn.”

I love Delta again.

Some very good features but disappointed that all three models are left-tilting only. Also, tilt gage good for 1/2 degree? I think I would rather use my Wixey. I like the built-in riving knife, though, Clifford

Yes, the "all LT" caught my eye, too. While I personally prefer that for a non-slider, I can understand how folks who are used to the RT format might be less comfortable with that. The dual dust collection port setup is also a nice idea, clearing a hood around the blade as well as the cabinet. Of course, using that capability along with a good overarm guard collection point ups the anty for the dust collection system if you want to fully realize the capability.

The revamped trunnion is also nice, putting both of those wheels on the front. That makes for more flexibility for folks who want to do storage under the extension table.

Nice saw, but almost 30 years too late for me. <Gr>! I did notice that the stock fences on all three models are Biesmeyer. I'd much rather have a Unifence.
