Delta Homecraft 8

Delta Homecraft 8" Table Saw

I purchased this vintage Delta 34-500 8" Table Saw at a garage sale for $50. It was covered in dirt and grime but mostly complete. It included the original Delta motor, aluminum pulley guard, fence, and miter gauge. After a good cleaning and tune up, it worked exceptionally well.

Homecraft Retirement NEW
by: Chris

I am finally retiring my Delta Homecraft 34-500 table saw which I purchased from a friend for $50.00. I've used this machine for over 25 years and it is still working well.
I just received a Delta 36-725 from my wife for my birthday.
I guess my Boice Crane 4" jointer is next.

Delta 8 in Combo circa 1952? NEW
by: Phillip Irish

I recently restored I believe is a Delta Homecraft 34-500 8 in table saw, combo. It is a table saw, tip up Drill Press, 4 in Jointer on the side, and a 8 in Disc Sander. My Combo is currently on Vintage Machines.org. All these accessories are run off of one 1/2 HP motor with a long belt for the Drill Press, belt for the Table saw, and a pulley on the other end of the motor to run the Jointer. A really cool combo. I have been told this is from the 1950-60's era and was Delta's attempt to compete with the ShopSmith, but as we know today, Delta's attempt did not fair to well. I love and restore these wonderful old machines.

Homecraft table saw NEW
by: Jud

Hi. I have the same saw. Had it for over 30 years My Dad had this saw when I was a kid. He built our house in 1954 and by calling Delta Tools with model and s/n I found out it was manufactured April of 1953 so maybe he got it new. I,am not sure. But he would set me on the table and give me the buzz hair cut until the Beatles hit the scene. I use it with a 7 1/2 Freud blade. A lot of wood has gone though and still is going this saw. Have fun. Great saw. Jud
