I'm new to all this so many of you probably know more about this machine than I do. I just know it runs well, makes great cuts and looks nice in my shop. I bought it in its present condition from a local high school shop teacher in 1998; he said Bob Vaughan had done some work on it. I sent the serial # off to Delta requesting a manual, parts list, etc., and received a manual for Model 37-315. Has 4 knives, dovetailed ways. Serial No. plate says "Delta Power Tools Div., Rockwell Mfg. Co." but switch plate just says "Delta Manufacturing Co." -- don't know if that's of any significance. I don't know whether this is of interest/help to anyone - maybe there's a million of these still around - but if anyone can provide more info/date I'd appreciate it.
