Hey all...I'm kind of frustrated because I'm having a hard time finding out any info about my saw. I just bought it (used) on Sunday. Here's all I know:
It's a Delta Unisaw, platinum edition with a 52" Beiesmeyer fence
It says it's model 36-943, but I can't find that number ANYWHERE online...
The motor is labeled as 5HP, 230V, 1ph and has 2 belts.
It is a left tilt.

I'd love to find out how old the saw is and stuff like that (parts availability, etc).
I've looked on delta's website, their DW/PC/Delta/B&D ServiceNET, Amazon and I've done a bunch of web searches. Do I have the only one of these in existance or what?

You could try www.owwm.com if it's rather old. But it doesn't sound like it's very old, let me look around and I 'll see what I can come up with. Dave:)

I'm having no luck either, is that all the info on the saw, could you post pics, that might help with the ID, not to mention I'd love to see it. Dave:)

Agreed, I don't think it's THAT old... I'd doubt it being more than 10-15 years old. I'll see if I can get some pictures of my "plunder" ;)

Chris,

Looks like the real deal to me. I'm sure the American flag on base influenced your decision :lol:

Call Delta and ask. I had a 50 year old planer (Delta/Rockwell) and called them. They were very helpful, in fact, they still had some parts available. 'Course the only problem is they wanted $500 for cutterhead assembly to go on a planer worth about $15 :eusa_booh

"Help IDing saw" :eusa_thin


You've got to be kidding!!!! :roll: That's the most blatant non-stealth stealth gloat I've seen in a while! :lol:

That there is a Uni-Saur! And a nice one at that! Congrats on the score - wish I was that lucky!

Yes, but did you notice the SUPER stealthy (yet fuzzy ) way that I got the picture of the radial arm saw and drill press in there too? :lol:

My questions about IDing the saw were more for the purpose of finding out it's specs and stuff...

Chris, I bought a 36-843 in Mar 03 and it was from Delta's Limited Edition line which I believe they were closing out. If I remember correctly the Platinum Edition came out the year after. I am not sure if any of this will help in your quest for specs but I figured I would pass the info along. I am not sure if Delta is still carrying their Platinum Edition now or not but you might try looking on Amazon to see if you can find your model number. Sometimes Amazon has the a PDF link where you can download the user's manual. Even if they don't have your specific model number listed you might try reading the descriptions for each Unisaw and find one with the same specs (5HP, 230V, 1ph, left tilt) you listed in your original post and see if they have a PDF link available. It's a nice saw, I have the 3 HP model and I love mine.

DL,
Thanks! Just dating the saw to "newer than 03" is more than I had before. Amazon was the first place that I went. All of the left tilt, 5hp unisaw part numbers now seem to start 36-L51******. I imagine most of the parts are still the same though.

Great picture, reminds me of my college days, anybody got a twinkie?.... but I digress.

Regarding the saw: 5HP Delta Unisaw with 52" Bismeyer, left tilt, $200 - You Suck! :mrgreen:
