Recently I joked that my tablesaw only weighs three pounds. It wasn't a huge exaggeration. My Delta 36-540 is truly a lightweight.
Yesterday I tried ripping some maple slabs 2 12" thick. It just plain wouldn't do the job and even tripped the overload switch. Plus the whole unit was moving backwards as I tried to feed. It is truly a puny, underpowered lightweight.
It cost $89.00 new about ten years ago. Probably worth every penny.
I'll be in the market for something else. First have to decide how to pay for a replacement. If I sell the Terrco duplicator, that will do it.
I will probably watch the auctions and estate sales first. But, one rarely sees any major tools of quality at those. Usually Craftsmen. Never know though.
Edit: can't edit title, should be face facts
