Base model 20-200 8" tilt top table saw. As equipped is a model 20-825 with the front table extension and 32" fence rails. The only catalog that I can find this saw printed in is the 1942 Delta catalog and a Delta bulletin dated September 20, 1941 submitted by Keith Bohn. This saw was only manufactured in the early 1940's. It was the replacement for the model 860 made during the 1930's. The table is 15" wide and 18 3/4" deep. The front extension adds another 7" to the table length. The arbor uses tapered roller bearings that are the same as the 860 saw [6057 bearing and 6157 race]. All the casting numbers are HCS 5xx except the front extension which is NCS 118 with HCS 533 stamped in it. The table insert on this saw is not the original but is a very nicely made aluminum replacement. It is 3 1/2" wide and 11" long which is the same size as an Unisaw Jr but they not interchangable. One the unigue things about this saw is the use of different metals than the normal. The DDL160, BM4 and the faucet knob are made of cast iron instead of die cast. The blade depth indicator plate is brass while the serial number plate is steel. The miter gauge head is made of plastic with the NCS 160 moulded into the bottom just like the die cast parts. It has the US and Canadian patent number on it. This saw also has the cast iron abrasive guard shown in one of the pictures. The tilt trunnion cradle is quite similar to the 14" band saw and the rear trunnion is the same part as a band saw. This saw would mount on a 891 steel stand [same as the 10" tilt top saw or the 14" band saw] or the 1168 steel stand when used as a combination unit. I plan on mounting this saw on a combo stand with a 654 6" jointer.
