Anchored by the famous Delta Unisaw. The Delta Manufacturing Company has been making a line of industrial and small shop woodworking equipment for over 90 years. Much of that equipment has found itself in wood shops all over the world from small furniture and cabinet shops, to schools and vocational training centers and large manufacturing facilities.
The Delta Specialty Company was founded by Herbert Tautz in 1919. The American Boy Scroll Saw was the first breakthrough Delta product invented by Tautz in 1923. In 1937 Delta changed the woodworking industry by inventing the first 10-inch tilting arbor saw known today as the Unisaw. It's become one of the most popular mainstays of small and large shops around the world and is a prized possession of many woodworkers.
Delta continues manufacturing quality woodworking tools and equipment to this day although some would say that the very best of Delta woodworking equipment was produced between 1930 and the 1980's
