Delta 1160 Table Saw - 10" Ball Bearing Table Saw

This Delta 1160 Table Saw was advertised as a real "man-sized" macine, with its hushky 20 by 27 inch table, its sturdy tubular rip-fence guide bars and all the features that won such a reputation for the 8-inch saw plus it had greater capacity and added conveniences.

Designed for craftsman who needed and demanded the best there is in workshop equipment, this Delta No. 1160 Table Saw (10-inch) was built with just one thought in mind: To produce a saw that would offer more accuracy, more capacity, more conveniences, more built-in value than any similar saw on the market, regardless of price!

That this object was been achieve was recognized by many mechanics and craftsman as soon as the No. 1160 saw was examined with care.

From the heavy-walled tubes that form the rip-fence guide bars, a full 1-3/8" in diameter, and the stronger steel to resist bending and torsional stresses than any other section of equal weight to the hidden but important sold-forged alloy-steel arbor with its self-sealed ball bearings, every detail had been worked out to give the utmost satisfaction to the user.

The micro-set rip fence was carried on a heavy casting at the front, locked to the front guide bar by a neat cam lever with a Baklite ball handle. The rear lock was operatedfrom the front also, so that the hands never needed to be near the blade when locking the fence. And it was impossible for this fence to move or spring. The miter gage was the famout "Auto-Set" miter gage, with individual adjustments for 45 and 90 degree settings.

Crosscuts Stock 12 Inches Wide

From the saw blade to the front edge of the table the table surface measures 12-1/2" wide, so that stock a full 12" wide and 3-1/4" thick could be cut easily, with full bearing on the table surface for both the workand the miter gage. And, in providing adequate surface in front of the blade, this was not done at the expense of the rear surface, for there are 5" of table behind the blade to support the work as it leaves the saw.
