    The design was originally made by a company called Redstar starting in 1936. They were bought out by Rockwell in1948 and as far as I know were maufactured until the late 1950's. I think it was a beautiful design and I would love to get my hands on an A30 (10 inch) or 40 (12 inch).

    What a treat. Did you use a jigsaw for the Lexan blade guards?

    Tool rescue- Delta Multiplex 20A

    For those of you who never venture over to the OWWM site I am reposting this here

    Every once in a while I come across a tool that seems to need to be rescued. I say rescued as they are tools I would not likely keep but I would be sad to see them go to the scrap dealer. This situation seems to be more frequent as my shop fills up.

    Such was the case about 18 months ago when I spotted this delta Multiplex 20a in an on line ad. The ad had one blurry picture but I knew what it was. When I went to look at it I found it covered with pitch, sawdust and dirt so thick it was almost black. Being a brave soul; or maybe just foolish I flicked the switch and away it ran. The few pictures I took of it's condition unfortunity disappeared from my camera.

    Having seen the beauty owned by Joe Otocka (OWWM member) I knew this saw had a lot of potential.

    Any way fast forward to this summer and I finally got this one in the que. First I reburbished the saw. It really only need and good cleaning and repaint. Opened the motor and cleaned it all out and changed the bearings. As it had no stand I made a replica from hardwood and MDF. Made a new table along with a sacrficial table as I like to do for a RAS. Also made a new antikickback device and a crank for raising the saw. Last but not least I made some lower blade guards out of 1/4" Lexan.

    Turned out pretty good I think. Not as good as Joe's but none the less it is a sweet saw.

    But alas it is a rescue and my 1HP Delta 900 does not have to worry about being replaced
