Years ago, I dropped by Curtis Garrett’s shop to pick up a band saw that he had restored for me. While there, I took notice of his old Delta table saw and fell in love. I don’t do much wood working, however, and have never had a need for a finger remover. Then, a few weeks ago, my wife got a quote to get some cabinets built for the house. That quote got me very interested in wood working and I quickly emailed Curtis to see if he had any table saw restorations in the works.
Turns out, he did… And what you see before you is my brand spanking new Delta Rockwell 34-600 that was originally manufactured around 1955 or so.
My shop is designed mostly for tinkering with cars and other mechanicals and I don’t really want to change that. What I would like to do, however, is create a small wood working setup that can be put away when not in use. The small size of this vintage table saw is perfect for that application. But I will get much more into that in the coming weeks… Stay tuned.
In the meantime, enjoy these shots:
