Question about Delta Saws

Need Manual / Info For Old Delta Chop Saw / Cold Saw

I cut aluminum using an old Delta chop saw. The balde swings down from the top. The motor drives the blade using 3 belts.

The serial number is 54-9204.

I am trying to find the speed at which the blade rotates.

Would anyone have any specs? Or can someone point me to a place where I can get a manual for it before I pull out my calculator and try to compute the speeed?

Thank you. Walt.

The machine should have a data plate somewhere. This may give blade RPM or motor rpm, then its out witrh the calculator to work out the blade speed. The crucial number however is not the rpm but the peripheral speed in feet or meters per minute.
Used to work with a power tool manufacturer, a standard woodcutting chop saw will safely cut alloy. Two things, watch the blade type, and watch out for metal swarf entering the motor and switchgear !.

Can I use my metal chop saw to cut wood if I replace the blade with a wood saw blade?


Its conversely sometimes possible if you was asking about a wood saw with a steel saw blade but i cannot advice that in both application its not safe because not only of the difference of power but most it is the much higher RPM by diameter, just beware always on the max rpm you can read on your saw blades!!, it can give strange accidents with objects it can grab and swinging outbroken parts away.

Macallister chop saw blade problem, the motor runs but when half way through cutting wood the blade stops ?


I'm not sure if you have a chop saw or circular saw. Either way, it sounds like the nut and washer are not tight enough to hold the blade. If you have a circular saw clockwise will tighten the nut and washer onto the blade and hold it in place. Most chop saws are a left hand thread and then you would turn the nut counter clockwise to hold the blade tighter. The blade wobbles because it is not tight.

How do you remove the blade on my toledo chop saw


Unplug the saw first. Then raise the guard and lower the blade onto a piece of wood to keep the blade from turning. Using a proper wrench, turn the nut in the direction the blade spins when cutting and remove the nut and blade.

Cannot get saw to lift up on toedo chop saw


If your handle has two buttons, they are usually a power swtich and safety button so the saw isn't accidently started. No, power should not matter in the function of the swing arm. Most chop saws lock down by way of a small chain from the base to the end of the handle. Most miter saws and some chop saws lock down by way of a pin located on the pivot point of the swing arm. The pin locks the swing arm down by passing through a hole in the base pivot bearing.

How do I un lock the dw715 miter saw


If I understand correctly, your saw arm is all the way down and it won't raise so you can cut wood?

There is usually a small pin located at the pivot ... it is usually a steel cylinder about 1/4" in diameter that pushes in and out, sometimes it has a ring on the end ... use your fingers and pull it out. The lock pin is used when transporting or storing the chop saw.

One of my old chop saws, the pin got stuck and we had to tear it out with vice grips. And now the thing is hard to carry around or store because it's always open.

If this is a new saw >>> i want you to understand something about safety that I learned >>> there is a strong human instinct to reach in with your hand >>> to avoid this instinct takes practice >>> train you mind to be very slow with these saws >> no rush >> plenty of time to be deliberate >> wait for the saw to come to a full stop >> hope this helped > fyi, I hear that it doesn't hurt when cutting off a finger because it happens so fast, but that's what I've heard.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

With power off grab both sides of the blade and try to rocking (NOT SPINNING) the blade in opposide directions on each side of the balde. Then while rocking the blade, see if the armature teeters inside the motor.

It it does have excessive movement then the rear motor bearing is probably worn excessively.

I have to ask if this is a 110V cut off saw and your trying to use it on 220V because it will produce the exact symtoms you described.

I also note that you did not mention if you had changed the brushes. Worn brushes or weak brush springs can also cause the symptom you describe.

Hopefully this gives you something to work with.

Thanks for using FixYa!
