5 HP Motor 10 in. UNISAW® with 52 in. BIESEMEYER® Fence System

Get ready for something radically different. The UNISAW, has been redesigned from the ground up and loaded with industry firsts. Like a conveniently located push-button arbor lock for quick, easy blade changes. Or a tool-free, split-design guarding system with a true rise and fall riving knife for through and non-through cuts. There's even a BIESEMEYER Fence accurate to 1/64 in.

  • Single-Cast Trunnion System results in incredible vibration control providing continuous smooth operation and dependable accuracy
  • Dual Front Cranks make adjusting blade height and blade bevel easy, accurate, and repeatable in all your operations
  • The Bevel Dial allows fine tuning of the blade bevel with ease and provides accuracy you can trust to within 1/4°
  • Tool-Free Split Guard design allows a true rise-and fall riving knife by using a lever on the front of the saw or inside the throat plate. You can then add the anti-kickback paws and guard to the riving knife without tools
  • The Cabinet Construction consists of a large cast iron base providing stability and solid footing
  • Table Top provides more surface area to stabilize the product and offers outstanding smoothness and superior ease
  • The Largest Blade Opening in class makes fine tuning your riving knife and blade changes easier than ever
  • The Push Button Arbor Lock makes the blade changing process simple and more natural with the use of only 1 wrench
  • Large, Easy to Access ON/OFF switch is multi-directional and can be activated from any angle
  • Bi-Level Dust Extraction uses only 1 collector hose coupled with a sloping bottom cabinet used to navigate dust, and the new closed bevel gauge provides a sealed interior. This combination results in much higher level of dust collection
  • BIESEMEYER® Fence System provides hairline pointer and built-in tape allowing you to make precision set-ups, cut after cut. 9-ply fence faces have improved tolerances like no other as well as an improved cam front lock lever for an over lock with a curved edge
  • On-Board Miter Gauge Storage is conveniently located on the side of the cabinet and On-Board Wrench and Push Stick Storage is conveniently located beside the switch

    I bought the 5HP Unisaw in late 2012, but did not submit a review until I had spent a great deal of time using it. The saw was delivered, well packaged, and without any damage. It took me a couple of hours to get it set up by myself. Impressed by the quality of the heavy duty construction, and the great design. I have now used it for over a year, and cannot say enough good things about this saw. I have used it to build furniture for both of my daughters, and also for some "construction" jobs around our small farm. I just added an Excaliber overarm guard and dust collection to the saw, as I was getting quite a bit of dust thrown up when cutting 8/4 stock. On thinner stock, the saws dust collection system does a great job. This saw has made me a better, and more efficient woodworker. Was worth the extra money to get a great tool that was assembled in the US, with many US made parts. Thanks to Delta!

    I recently purchased this saw and carefully set it up over a few days then made my first cut. I was impressed that Delta had installed a carbide tipped blade which created an extremely smooth cut on plywood. I'll write more later as I begin making a few things with this beauty.

    In 4th grade, I did my first wood working project. In the classroom was a big ole Rockwell cabinet saw. One day I said to myself, I'm going to own one of these beasts. Until last month, no saw could hold a candle to that Rockwell saw. When I saw the new Unisaw design, I knew I found the table saw for me. I was able to pick this saw up at the transfer station and get it with no problem. I was able to get it down into the basement with the help of a friend and a large appliance dolly. Assembly was fairly easy, except for the installation of the wings. There's no good single design that works for this. I wish Delta would consider an optional single piece table. Regardless of weight - I'd get that. Some goof-off, a couple of rounds of rubbing compound and auto wax and the table is a smooth as can be. I've been making new kitchen cabinets for the past month and have been very satisified with this tool. Glad to see Delta put their very best on this one.
