Delta Unisaw with Low-Voltage Control
Delta just released the info on an update of their fantastic Unisaw. This time around, they're making the low-voltage control switch (LVC) a standard feature. The purpose of this switch is to downgrade the voltage where it matters so there's no charring of your skinny ass if there's ever an electrical problem. According to Delta, they always had the LVC available as an option, but the more they spoke to woodworkers and the more they did research, the more they realized that it should be a standard offering.
All other aspects of the new Unisaw are the same (including the fact that it's made in America), meaning it's still one of the premier cabinet saws out there. For a full tour of the tool, check out Delta's Unisaw page here. The saw will be retailing for about $3800.
The press release is after the jump...
DELTA® Machinery Responds to Customer Requests With New Low Voltage Control UNISAW®
JACKSON, Tenn. (June 16, 2010) - DELTA Machinery launches a new low voltage control UNISAW to meet the needs of industrial and institutional customers that prefer the LVC feature. The enhanced UNISAW (model 36-L552LVC) delivers the durability and power of a three-phase Baldor motor with low voltage (24V) at the switch.
Built and assembled in Jackson, Tenn., "This new UNISAW model reflects the innovation, tradition and heritage of the DELTA brand," said Michael Boie, product manager for DELTA Machinery. "We have always provided this low voltage control as a special order option to our customers. But while doing the research for the new UNISAW, industrial and institutional users continued to ask for this as a standard offering. As a result of our research, we added a low voltage control model as a standard listing to our product line to support the varying needs or preferences of our users."
All other aspects of the LVC UNISAW are identical to the original UNISAW relaunched in 2009, including a unique one-piece cast-iron trunnion design, a bevel gauge centered between dual front cranks, a rise-and-fall two-position riving knife, a modular tool-free guarding system and a fully integrated dust collection system. This table saw is ideal for general ripping, cross cutting, tenoning and dado cutting, re-sawing and specialized jig and fixture applications. The new 36-L552LVC DELTA UNISAW is backed by a five-year warranty and is available now at specialty woodworking dealers for a suggested retail price of $3,799.
