Delta Power Tools - Company Profile
Delta's popular sellers
Delta power tools are the latest development in this American company’s history of tool-making. In 1945, a manufacturing company known as Rockwell purchased the Delta Manufacturing Company, and Delta became the power tools division of Rockwell. For this reason, Delta tools are often known as “Delta Rockwell”. In 1984, the Delta division was sold to Pentair Incorporated, so Pentair is another name you’ll see in connection with Delta power tools.
Now Delta make a large range of power tools, including a variety of radial arm saws. Model 33-420 has an 18” combination blade as well as a retractable leaf guard and an electro-mechanical blade brake.
Other saws made by the company include scroll saws, band saws and miter saws. The 16” Variable Speed Scroll Saw includes a 120-volt motor. The upper and lower blade chucks feature the Quickset II Blade Chuck System. This allows you to change the blade without the need for extra tools. This model is also available with a leg set. There is also a choice of miter saws, including the 12” Twinlaser Miter Saw. This has see-through blade guard covers that automatically retract when you’re doing the cutting. It also has an ergonomically designed handle to cut down on user fatigue and provide better control.
There is also a choice of drilling machines: drill presses, boring machines and mortisers. If you’re kicking up a storm of dust with all your work, check out the “dust management” range of equipment. Delta make dust collectors, including a portable model. There is also a range of air purifiers to keep you breathing healthily. The downdraft mat has an anti-skid surface, important if you’re sanding and need a stable base.
If you already own equipment made by Delta, you might be looking for replacement parts. Most of these can be ordered from the website at www.deltawoodworking.com. (Look for the link to SERVICENET.) Buying the right replacement parts allows you to get even more use out of your Delta power tools.
