DELTA 36-L51X-BC50 10-Inch Left Tilt 5-Horsepower Cabinet Saw with 50-Inch Biesemeyer Fence, 2 Cast Iron Extension Wings, Table Board, and Legs, 230-Volt 1-Phase
Product DescriptionEnjoy user-friendly operation and precise results with the Delta 36-L51X-BC50 10-Inch, Five-Horsepower Cabinet Saw with Biesemeyer Commercial Fence System. Offering two depths of cut, this saw works cleanly and can handle just about any job you throw at it. For further versatility, it includes a fence system that provides left-of-blade cutting capability.
Left-tilt version of the famous Delta Unisaw features the largest blade opening in its class.
Ideal for a high-performance shop, this left-tilt version of the famous Delta Unisaw has a computer-designed motor cover, a miter gauge, standard insert, and a four-inch dust connector that will fit most common vacuums.
Its greatest asset, however, is the included Biesemeyer Fence System with hairline pointer and built-in tape, which allows you to make precise setups cut after cut. Additionally, nine-ply fence faces deliver tolerance that is unmatched by other models. An added bonus, a cam front lock lever provides overlock with a curved edge.
Robust 5.0-Horsepower Motor
The 36-L51X-BC50 never skimps on power or precision. The 5.0-horsepower, 230-volt, one-phase True American Marathon TEFC motor with full-voltage starter (GPE) provides robust performance cut after cut. A single-cast trunnion system controls vibration to provide continuous, smooth operation and dependable accuracy.
Easy Blade Adjustments and Changes
To ensure that you get the results you want, dual front cranks make fine-tuning the blade height quick and easy. At the same time, a bevel dial allows for adjustment within one quarter of a degree.
The 36-L51X-BC50 also boasts the largest blade opening in its class, which means fine tuning your riving knife and changing blades is a snap. A push-button arbor lock further simplifies blade changes--you only need one wrench, and you won't scrape your knuckles during changes.
Large, Stable Work Table
And because the quality of your finished piece depends on the stability of your work surface, this cabinet saw provides enough surface area to stabilize the entire machine for fast, easy cuts. The table measures 27 x 76 inches to give you plenty of room to work, two 10-inch wings allow for table expansion, and a cast-iron base ensures stability.
Dust-Extraction System Keeps Your Work Area Clean
To make operation as user-friendly as can be, a bi-level dust extraction system collects sawdust for a clean work area and maximum visibility. The system needs only a collector hose coupled with a sloping bottom cabinet to navigate dust. A closed bevel gauge provides a sealed interior.
User-Friendly Features for Dependable Performance
For added convenience, a large, easy-to-access on/off switch can be activated from any angle--the mounting bracket is solid and sturdy enough for those times when it's necessary to turn the saw off with your knee or foot.
And to help keep your tools and accessories organized, onboard Smart Storage provides space for five saw blades, two riving knives, an arbor nut flange, and the entire rise-and-fall split guard assembly. There's also ample room for a push stick, arbor wrench with extra-long handle, and standard throat plate.
The 36-L51X-BC50 is easy to assemble.

This review is from: DELTA 36-L51X-BC50 10-Inch Left Tilt 5-Horsepower Cabinet Saw with 50-Inch Biesemeyer Fence, 2 Cast Iron Extension Wings, Table Board, and Legs, 230-Volt 1-Phase (Tools & Home Improvement)I recently purchased a Delta L51X Left Tilt 5 horse power Unisaw with the 52 inch Biesemeyer fence and the side extension table. Since I like to move my equipment around the shop either for cleaning or for re-arranging I also purchased the Delta 50-289 Mobile Machine Base for the Unisaw with a 52 inch Biesemeyer fence. To my dismay shortly after I ordered the saw and mobile base, Delta began offering the base as part of the total saw package at the same price. In this case you might say the early bird got the shaft.
I would like this review to be helpful to those who read it so I have divided my comments into four specific paragraphs 1.) My motivation and incentive for purchasing the Delta Table Saw, 2.) My thoughts on the packing, shipping and delivery of the saw, 3.) My thoughts and experience on the assembly of the saw, and 4.) my experience in using the saw.

This review is from: DELTA 36-L51X-BC50 10-Inch Left Tilt 5-Horsepower Cabinet Saw with 50-Inch Biesemeyer Fence, 2 Cast Iron Extension Wings, Table Board, and Legs, 230-Volt 1-Phase (Tools & Home Improvement)This saw is awesome. Cuts 2" pecan, hard maple, oak, etc, effortlessly. The Biesemeyer fence system is the most accurate and sturdy I have found. I cann measiure NO deflection of the fence even with heavy hand pressure laterally. Infeed and outfeed tables are high quality and relatively easy to assemble. The addition of a Forrest Woodworker II blade makes it just about the "perfect" tablesaw. Produces mirror smooth rips and crosscuts in all wood types used so far. The miter gage is "acceptable" but one would think that Delta would come up with a better one for use with a saw of this quality. Settings on the accompanying gage cannot be relied upon without several test cuts.

This review is from: DELTA 36-L51X-BC50 10-Inch Left Tilt 5-Horsepower Cabinet Saw with 50-Inch Biesemeyer Fence, 2 Cast Iron Extension Wings, Table Board, and Legs, 230-Volt 1-Phase (Tools & Home Improvement)I took my time researching which cabinet saw to purchase and after talking to cabinet saw owners and actually used the different cabinet saws, I decided to purchase the Delta 5HP Unisaw. I have owned contractors saw for 15 years but want a cabinet saw for cabinets I am building.
I purchased the Delta 36-L51X-BC5 5HP Unisaw with Biesemeyer fence, mobile base and the Delta 34-976 Deluxe Uniguard Blade Guard. This is the best purchase I have ever made. The saw cuts with no effort and every cut is clean and perfect. I do not even have to sand the edges. I have it connected to dust collection and there is no visible dust when cutting with the system on. It is so quite that you cannot hear me cutting plywood inside the house anymore. It is a joy to use and makes cutting sheet good easy and safe.
