Rockwell 34-608
by: Todd

I recently picked up a 34-608 from an auction. It's not much different than the 34-600. It is actually a combination machine with a Rockwell 4 inch jointer attached to the side. I'm working on cleaning up the table saw, and other than a little pitch and saw dust, the thing seems to be in perfect shape. I've got to get it put back together and realigned to see if it cuts square, but I'm excited about it.

I do need belts and would like some table top extensions. I have one wing, but another would be nice. Has anyone had luck with piecing together extensions from other models, etc.?

Rockwell 34-600 Table Saw Belt - Parts
by: Retgrunt

I have a Rockwell Table saw that other than needing a good clean up, it is in need of a posi drive belt, P/N 49-081. The belt that came with it has no teeth, as they have been since long worn off and the material is brittle. Please respond to retgrunt03@msn.com

I just got one of these old table saws from my dad. Everything is in good order except I am missing on of the cast iron table extensions. The left hand side one if you are looking at the side without the motor. I saw that there was one being parted out. Of if you know of where I could get one ...

Thanks

4 Sale RD 34-600 TS and RD 24" Scroll saw
by: Steve Hiller

I'm reposting this from last year.

I bought a 10" Craftsman to replace my little Delta Home Craft. I hate getting rid of it, but the cost of replacing the dead motor, plus the fact that it's so small, I'm slowly building a new kitchen and this little guy just can't do it (for me).

If you are interested let me know, I'll send pics and we can talk, it's in Mason, Ohio 45040.

I'm also getting rid of an old Delta 24" scroll saw that I bought at school auction about 15 years ago. It's the BIG cast iron beast!

My apologies if I'm violating any terms of service, but this seems to be the right group to present this to!

by: Anthony Brown

Someone posted in 2008 of restoring a Shopcraft Band Saw, how do I find out if and where they ever found parts? I just bought one at a flea market.

You can't get this kind of machine anymore
by: Billy Boy

My Father In-Law gave me his old R/D 34-600 Table Saw in 1984. He got it in the mud 60's. I'm still building home projects today on that little beast. It's built with more steel and greater precision that anything I've seen at Home Depot or Sears. I just finished a total breakdown cleaning and rehab on it. If this little sucker was a watch it would be a Rolex...bp

Table Saw motor
by: Anonymous

I already gave the saw to my son; but I think it
had a 1 hp motor on it. Table extensions may be a little scarce, but keep looking and you may find some.

That's My Saw!
by: Steve

Dan,

I have been using the same R/D TS for the past 22 years at home. The motor just croaked. What size motor did you use? Mine was a 13A 3/4 HP motor that always seemed a little underpowered.

I am wanting some table extensions also, do you know if any are available (cast) for this saw?

Nice job BTW.

Table Saw restoration
by: Anonymous

Thanks for the encouragement! I did find a leg set on eBay, but it was $75.00 and due to budget constraints, I used a more modern leg set that I got for only $25. I gave the saw to my son for Christmas and he was flabbergasted- it was a total surprise to him.
I think that this Delta 34-600 is more robust and actually weighs more than my own Craftsman 10" CONTRACTOR SAW. My next project is to restore an old Shopcraft 10" bandsaw. The wheel tires don't look too bad, but if I need new ones, can you suggest a vendor?

Nice job
by: David

You should feel good about you restoration, I have restored the mid 50's Delta Home craft models myself because they are fine machines. The only thing that would put the finishing touch on yours would be an original stand- They do come come available and can be aquired even if there's a busted tool mounted on them.
