Has The Delta 3 10″ HP Motor UNISAW Made Improvements In The Right Direction?
The Delta 3 HP Motor UNISAW has the initial appearance of a clean, almost elegant looking table saw but a quick look at the features and capabilities shows that there is actually quite a lot going on here.
In addition to the Biesemeyer fence and rails and 3Hp motor, the product uses dual front cranks, a cast iron base, multi-directional power switch and tool-free design to make the job easier and aid with the aim of providing “continuous smooth operation and dependable accuracy”. Is this Delta Saw up to the job or have buyers been left disappointed?
What advantages have users enjoyed with this Delta 3 HP Motor 10” UNISAW?
One of the more interesting ideas to come from user feedback on this product is that it seems to have been made by someone that took the time to consider improvements to table saws and useability, something that is also seen in the specification as it highlights the improved table top geometry.
There are plenty of positive comments about some of the basic requirements of a saw of this type that have been fulfilled – mainly its ability to cut wood effortlessly and accurately, the quality of the blades and its sturdy construction – but there are also plenty of mentions for some of the smaller features like the storage drawer for the blades, the use of magnets, the simple idea to use front-mounted controls and the high-quality laminate top.
For many buyers it is a definite upgrade on the appliances they are used to because of this performance, the useability and the extra features but there are still some buyers finding fault in some of the design features.
What drawbacks have been pointed out in reviews of this Delta 3 HP Motor UNISAW?
This extra work and consideration that has gone into the model is perhaps one of the reasons why this table does not have the price tag around; however, few seem to be complaining about the cost because of the sense of worth that is received. This does not mean that the product is flawless though because there have been some issues with the alignments, the markings on the fence, the positioning of the on/off switch and the length of the cord.
In many cases these problems have been rectified by the owner with individual adjustments – or a simple extension cord – but should these changes have been necessary on a model that originally seemed to be going out of its way to avoid such common and basic flaws?
Summary: what is the final verdict on this costly but functional Delta 3 HP UNISAW?
Balancing the pros and cons leaves with two separate sides of an argument: on one side we have those that are happy to pay for the great design and interesting considerations that make the saw a pleasure to use and on the other we have those that see the faults that were overlooked and sense that there is still more to be done.
It can be said that the Delta table saw perhaps has not gone as far as it could have in providing the ideal, user-friendly table saw but it is still recommendable to many for the interesting extras that were added and the overall high performance.
