Delta Rockwell No. 30C 10" Radial Arm Saw

Delta Radial Arm Saw Model 30C

Delta Radial Arm Saw Model 30C

Advertised as a "10" Portable Radial Arm Saw," I'm certain it was too heavy to move much. This was provided by Delta as a “cost-cutting” Saw identified as Model 30C. It was powered by a 1 1/2 HP motor that developed up to 3 HP under load and was provided with and without a stand.

Delta Rockwell No. 30C for Sale
by: Eric

I have one of these for sale in Northern Kentucky. It is in near perfect condition. It has literally never been used. My wife's grandfather purchased it in the 1960's new and past away shortly after. Comes complete with stand. french829@insightbb.com

Vertical Adjustment Question Delta 30C
by: Jana

Is there some locking mechanism for the vertical adjustment? The vertical adjustment crank on my recently acquired Delta Rockwell 30C 10" radial arm saw wasn't moving but a quarter turn until we tried so hard that the spring pin broke. Any advice? Thanks in advance!

30-C Radial Saw Update
by: Michael Milner

Nice photograph of that Delta/Rockwell Model 30-C radial saw - is it yours, and is that it's original paint? I have been researching these recently and discovered that they really were designed to be portable - strange but true. Take a look at page 64 of Delta's 1957 AB-57 catalog
and you'll see a picture of it with it's standard wooden carrying handles (the metal legs were an option). If you scroll back up to page 59 and look at the photo on the bottom row, center left, you'll see a picture of two men carrying that 30-C through a standard sized door opening into a house under construction (photo marked 'Home Builder'). I've been told that these 'smaller' radial saws were the 1950's version of our modern electric miter (cut-off) saws. Take care and I hope this helps, Mike
