Delta Milwaukee DeltaShop - Combo Saw, jointer, drill press

Delta Milwaukee DeltaShop - Combo Saw, jointer, drill press

I inherited this Deltashop from my Father-in-Law. Components include the 8 inch saw, jointer, drill press, disk sander, plus a tenoning jig, and saber attachment.

It went through Katrina, the drill press spindle and chuck were frozen, and there was a fair amount of rust just about everywhere.

I am now using the saw, with great results. I will be soon using all the other attachments as well, after some more clean-up.

The serial number on the unit is AR 3096.

I am interested in hearing from other fortunate owners of this particular model.

It is so well-built that I expect that my grandsons will be able to use it for many years.

I am interested in sources for parts, especially the spindle assembly and add-on safety parts.

Set-Up
by: Michael

I just bought one of these (8" saw + 4" jointer + drill press + sanding disk) in central New Jersey from the second owner. I can't figure out how to attach the accessories to the saw arbor. Can anyone help and or send pictures? Am I missing some pulley assembly?

Thanks!
Michael

HOMECRAFT SAW, JOINTER, DRILL PRESS
by: DAN

Hey There, I have one that was my fathers. He bought it around 1954. Does any one know the belt size for running the drill press? I have everything else but the belt. It was lost when we moved in 1958 and the drill press has not been used since. Please contact me at: dlmiv@yahoo.com

deltashop
by: Al G

i got mine in 1982,, included all parts and acessories (even the beautiful Delta brad pt. bits, unused) all the original manuals, parts lists, Delta's advertising pamphleand some original project plans.. original owner built a beautiful house in Placitas, New Mexico with it. i'm in rio rancho, NM. i'd like to know when it was made? i've "upgraded" every machine in my shop,many times, over the years but... the castings and machining on the Deltashop are superior. absolutely nothing wrong with it. i've never wanted to part with, even though i use it rarely and it takes up alot of space in my shop. it really is a good example of how we used to make machines i've finally decided to sell it? anyone interested? any offers? ,FYI,the drill press belt is driven by a 5/8" bore pulley on the table saw arbor-no keyway or set screw-adjusted by raising and lowering the arbor. great machine, never seen another one. e-mail me, Al @ ggaarden4@q.com.

Drive Belt for Drillpress
by: Fred Englan

Tom,

I recently received a Delta Milwaukee homecraft Delta shop from someone who just wanted it out of thier garage. It has all the same attachments as yours does but the problem I am having is hookingup the drive belt for the drillpress. FFroom you photo I can see that it goes into the saw part but can't tell if there is a seprate pully for the belt or what. Could you take pics of the drive belt hook up and send them to me please. I am in the process of cleaning and fixing. Got the saw to work and the Jointer but need to know if I am missing a part for the drillpress belt.

Any assistance you could render would be greatly appreciated.

Please send photo's to fredengland53@gmail.com

Thank you very much!

Fred England
