Delta 15" planer DC-380

Nov 20, 2001
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Stationary table, Fold down extentions, heavy construction, Factory fine tuned, free moble base, 3hp

Cons:Blades are a little harder to change, not made in USA

The Bottom Line: Very solid machine, would highly recommend. The 3hp motor, the fold down tables, as well as the stationary table. the design meets all my needs.


The Main thing I like about this model is that the table is stationary compaired to others that have the table move up to the cutter. THe adv. to this is two part. One you don't have to adjust your outfeed tables everytime you adjust the depth of the cut. Also there is no weight on the moving part (the head) so it shouldn't wear like the ones with the moving table. Also the machine has extention rollers that fold down out of the way so it takes less space. My machine was fine tuned right from the factory and cut oak very smooth. Everyone said that it was harder to change the blades but I had no trouble. THe motor is on top but there is still enought room to get in there and work. It doesn't have rollers on top like the Jet because of the placement of the motor. That would be nice but not enought to make me change my mind. It just makes since that the head would go down to the wood...not the table come up. Wish they were still made in USA or by Invicta like my Delta/Rockwell was, but the quality seems to be as good or better than any import. I had the 13" for since 1981 and still ran great when I sold it this year. The 3hp is a big improvment for the 15". Ken
