Default Lowes Delta 10" Contractor Saw...NO PARTS ?

I've been keeping an eye on the Delta Contractor 10" Table Saw at Lowes for some time now. While there I got really interested with the Miter fence on the saw and wanted to get one for my current saw...same size...3/4"...

And so I went to my favorite parts place (ereplacementparts.com) and lo and behold every part for the saw except nuts, washers and bolts is "DISCONTINUED".

Now I'm not saying the saw will break in the near future but it is odd that all the parts are not available from a source that has gotten me just about everything I've needed. Not to worry...you guys have taught me to do the right research before buying...and I always pay attention to your recommendations.

It is possible, of course, I missed the news flash that said Delta was not going to support that saw anymore...?

Couple of things then...(1) not a good sign and (2) I think I might start a practice where I check for parts before I buy...

No...I am not a pessimist...but I have from time to time spilled the top half of the glass...

Model 36-725? Read your post, checked e-replacement parts--yep, nothing but commons available. Then i thought maybe the model was new enough that they just weren't available in the secondary market yet. Went to deltamachinery.com, parts page, put in the model number and that was not found. The model itself can be seen, but nothing found in the parts area. Very strange.

An omen of things to come with Delta?

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Cherryville Chuck is right. I have heard that Delta may soon be gone.

Nick,

Yes we've learned the value of research. I occasionally get teased by my wife for all the research I do before making my purchase. I don't know why as I spent a couple of years researching her (dating) before we got married and we're in our 44th year but I digress .

If you're still researching saws, I just bought the Rigid 10" cast iron saw from Home Depot. I am extremely pleased with the saw's features, ease of set up, the quality, and both times I have e-mailed Rigid Customer Service they replied within hours. In addition they provide a life time warranty to the original owner.

Could be just a "discontinued" model. If they are going out of business they are hiding it well because there is no information to be found about their demise. I suggest running your question by Lowes online Customer Services people and see what they have to say about finding parts.

Went back and explored it some more. There are two bankruptcy fillings that I found. One in MS and one in GA. Both were chapter 7. BUT those filings were several years old. Bloomberg issued a blurb on March 30 2014 (today) about Delta and there was no mention of them going out of business. If anybody had information about financial troubles with Delta it would be Bloomberg.

I just checked to see if I could find out what's going on with them and it doesn't sound like they intend to go out of business. Instead they are moving from Jackson, Tenn to South Carolina. Maybe they are trying to streamline. I know that there are quite a few models they once carried that aren't in their line up anymore. Delta Machinery - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For the 3 Delta tools I own I'm not too worried about any of them except for the Unisaw. I've always heard that the motor is basically a proprietary frame design that you have to get from them. Every thing else to worry about is just bearings.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I think they are fine. I checked the parent company (Chang Type Industrial Co. Ltd) and they are doing real well in the markets.

As far as I know, it's been a long time since Delta Machinery has had their low-end saws in their parts lineup on their site. They fall into the "if you don't find what you are looking for..." contact our Parts Department kind of affair. The 32-325 Table Saw is on their site in their line-up and it is there on Lowes' site.

If you look at the latest Parts list for that model:
http://www.deltamachinery.com/downlo...DPEC002777.pdf
*** If you notice the date on that pub, it's only 3 months old. Although I was a Rockwell guy and I don't really follow the current Delta's, Everything I can see looks fine. (so far...)
