    Highest Rated Consumer Review by the Community

  • Decent for beginners, better than most, but not without faults

    Jan 3, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sturdy, cast iron top, steel extensions, won't tip, price
    Cons: Switch location, blade guard/anti-kickback device is abysmal, motor may be short-lived if overworked

    Summary: I am reviewing the Delta 36-600 10" table saw, which is still available from Amazon.com, and which folks may still be considering purchasing. Delta's current equivalent replacement of the 36-600 is the newer Delta Shopmaster Model TS300 which I ... read more

  • Repairing the motor.

    Nov 13, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: I've got a great saw with very little money invested in it.
    Cons: The motor is very noisy, but works great after I repaired it.

    Summary: I recently bought a used 36-600 that was advertised for $25.00 with a faulty motor. I bought it as it sat as the seller showed me the brushes that came out of the motor and one had pulled apart. I own and operate a small tool and die shop, so I ... read more

  • Not the saw for me

    Feb 12, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact size, motor in cabinet
    Cons: Loud, motor problems, no dust collection

    Summary: I purchased this exact saw for $325 for home wood shop use, thinking it would handle most tasks for me. It didn't. Within seven months of purchase, the motor armature burned up and the motor stopped running. I drug the saw out of my basement ... read more

  • Whether $250 or $400, a great value.

    Nov 18, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: heavy cast iron table, powerful motor, accurate fence
    Cons: poorly located power switch, loud

    Summary: I am a long-time amateur wood worker (and former construction worker/carpenter, to pay for school years ago), with experience building cabinets, shelves, tables and (when the kids were younger) children's toys and other assorted oddities. Over the years ... read more

  • Only a Benchtop Saw Really!

    Oct 23, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Delta Name
    Cons: Deceiving, Looks like a contractor saw. Really is a bench saw.

    Summary: Neighbor of mine just bought one of these and came to my house asking for help in setting it up and telling me what a good deal he got. Well I dont feel he got a good deal at all. I personally used this saw to rip a couple boards and tried to mount a ... read more

  • I like it!

    Feb 9, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: good value, belt driven, cast motor mount, 24" rip, 2 yr warranty, stand included
    Cons: poor switch location, steel wings, universal motor=noisy, smallish table

    Summary: This saw was initially well beyond my price point, but by cutting an advertised sale price of $275 and taking advantage of a 10% price challenge at a major home center, this saw followed me home for under $250 about a year ago. At that price I'm fairly ... read more

  • a great addition to any shop

    Jan 2, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: built solid, strong and powerful. Belt driven and has yet to bind up on me.
    Cons: At this price range, none

    Summary: I purchased this model after using many others including the unisaw on a regular basis. At the time I was renting and wanted a saw that I could move when I did but trusted to make accurate cuts. I must say that the past three years of owning this saw has ... read more

  • great buy

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: great saw for the money
    Cons: switch, but have a easy solution

    Summary: This review is actually focused on the position of the switch. I like others do not like where the switch is. I came up with an inexpensive way to relocate the switch without disturbing the wiring of the saw. Take two electrical outlet boxes ... read more

  • It's the Standard for 10" Saws

    Mar 13, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good price, Good basic design. Very durable & reliable.
    Cons: Adjustment wheels don't turn as smoothly as the $1500 machines.

    Summary: Variety of models: Outside of the money-is-no-object machines such as the Powermatic (whose finely polished table and silky smooth adjustment wheels are state of the art) the Delta 10" table saws are possibly the best and certainly the most commonly ... read more

  • Go ahead, buy it!

    Feb 10, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Low cost and size
    Cons: Switch and 40 tooth blade

    Summary: Because I am always looking for fellow woodworker's opinions on the tools I'm looking to buy I decided to help out the community. I have had my table saw for 2 years and have not had any problems with it. It is powerful enough to handle ... read more

  • Great value for money

    Feb 2, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cast Iron top, Price
    Cons: Position of switch

    Summary: I was looking for my first table saw but didn't want to spend over $400.00. On the other hand I didn't want a bench type saw. The Delta 36-600 fitted my needs. The top is cast Iron so is nice and heavy (doesn't tip when cutting larger pieces ... read more

  • You don't need a big saw to do a Big Job:

    Jan 25, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: small, inexpensive, dependable and very capable
    Cons: Blade guard design and position of power switch

    Summary: It works. In fact it works well. It does not take up a lot of room and it didnít cost a lot of money. What more can you ask? I have the Delta 10inch 34-670. While not the same exact saw as the newer 36-600 it is very close and therefore I think ... read more

  • A LOT OF SAW FOR THE MONEY

    Oct 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: POWER, PRECISION, AND ECONOMICAL
    Cons: COULD MAYBE USE A BETTER FENCE

    Summary: I bought the DELTA 36-600 for home hobby use, I looked at a similar JET, and Grizzly model tablesaw but found they lacked the quality i was looking for. I loved the basic saw and by adding a few accessories found that it could do everything i ... read more

  • Durable and precise

    Pros: Durable, precise, easy to use
    Cons: only accommodates 10 " or smaller blades

    Summary: I purchased this model many moons ago....to date I have cut at least 5 miles of board feet, ranging from 1/16 inch to 6 1/2 inches thick. The only trouble I ever had was after cutting enough black walnut to make a dinner table big enough for ... read more

    Pros: None
    Cons: All of the above.

    Summary: I have 30 years working in commercial cabinets, this saw was for home use. It was Loud, the crank turned clockwise to lower the blade. Because of the hard torque startup it broke the over priced belt way to often. ( I put a soft start in line to stop ... read more

    Pros: Great package. It has the basic featurers in hand.
    Cons: At $300.00 every two years for a motor? You do the math.

    Summary: Purchased the Delta 10" #36-600 Table Saw two years back. It replace my thirty five year old Craftsman saw. It comes out for use six to eight times a year for a weekend project. It preformed well until the motor burnt out. Braker did ... read more

    Summary: I have had this saw approximatley 7 years and have had no issues with it. The saw is well built and i have used it on many home improvement jobs. I would not recomend it for the full time construction worker but for the home it has been perfect for me. ... read more

    Pros: Much beefier than some mid grade Craftsman saws.
    Cons: Very faulty motor

    Summary: In shopping for a 'good' table saw (not the $100 kind), I happened onto a garage sale with an 'in the box' delta 36-600 saw. What a find! $110! I clipped off the straps, put it together in a few minutes, heart pounding, veins pulsating, ready to take on ... read more
