Biesemeyer Style Fence?

Asked by SouthernYankee January 13, 2021

Yes you're correct! It resembles the Biesemeyer Fence system, but not a Biesemeyer fence. It's a versatile fence system that supports the contractor saw durability.

How important is the one piece rail vs two piece ?

Asked by Bogan January 12, 2021

A one piece rail system lends versatility based on the fact it's not two pieces and assembly is less complicated.

Can someone explain what a one piece rail system is? I read below that the difference between th...

Asked by KS409 December 1, 2020

The one piece rail system is one piece (One Rail)! Like the 36-725T2, the Fence rail system consist of two separate pieces and not one solid piece.

Anyone who owns one, can you confirm you have a perfectly flat main table?

Good Saw
I feel the need to balance the low ratings from the other users on this 36-5100T2 saw. Let me start by saying that this was a horrible purchase experience. Here's the thing. This product is one SKU and Home Depot has it in their system as a single unit. However, the guide rails ship in a separate box. After waiting more than 2 weeks for delivery, which shipped directly from Delta, the delivery was missing the box that contained the guide rails. Home Depot contacted Delta. Delta said they shipped both boxes and would not send a replacement. The freight carrier (Estes) is horrible and was not helpful at all. Home Depot customer service ended up creating a totally new order. The second delivery successfully included the box containing the guide rails, and I returned the first unit to my local Home Depot. It was extremely frustrating and took many calls and more than 4 weeks before I had the saw. The only saving grace is that Home Depot gave me an additional discount on the second order, so I ended-up getting this good saw at an amazing price. The only reason I mention my purchase experience is because I read a couple reviews on the prior version of this saw (the 36-5100) from guys who had the exact same problem. So beware! The assembly instructions were rife with errors, but overall assembly was mostly easy with a little common sense. It seemed to me like the assembly instructions maybe had not been updated for the new T2 version. The instructions referenced screw & bolt types that were different than what was provided. I tried to use the parts diagram to get through it, but that document had the same errors. Hardware Bag C? There was no Hardware Bag C. But the Hardware Bag C items were included in Hardware Bag D, and everything needed for assembly was included (except the power cord retaining clip, no biggie). Like I said, with a little common sense I was able to get it done. On to the saw itself. Great fit and finish for this price point. The blade was perfectly aligned with the miter slots right out of the box. The rip fence needed just a little adjustment, which was very easy. The rip fence is very good, slides smoothly, stays aligned and locks solid and straight. My biggest gripe about the finished assembly is that the two cast iron extensions won’t sit perfectly flush with the table. I must have tried 10-20 times, but it just won’t align perfectly. The extensions sit maybe 1/70th of an inch above the table. Not a huge deal, it’s a pretty minor issue that does not prevent good quality cuts. The dust collection is good. Oh, the blade does have a brake, which for some reason Delta doesn’t advertise. Weird. The miter gauge is quite good with little to no play. The integrated wheel system is fantastic. Regarding gusgus’ comment about the flip-down fence being on the wrong side, I kind of agree, but you can change what side it’s on if it’s important to you. At this point I have only done test cuts and have not had the chance to really put it to sustained use, but it seems to be a very good saw. I ran some 10/4 walnut and both 8/4 and 12/4 maple with good results. I use a quality blade and got good, straight, glue-ready rips. I don’t force my cuts through, and the motor did not bog down at all at my preferred feed rate on 120V. Just make sure you’re using the right extension cord. Overall I’d say this saw is 4 stars (docking a star because of the misaligned extensions and poor assembly instructions). In fact, I’ll give it 4.5 stars at the price I paid (my original order was on sale for $999 and Home Depot put my second order through for $850 due to the delivery issues mentioned above). This is an outstanding, really great saw for $850. It I paid the full $1200 I’d probably give this 3.5 stars. The assembly is 2 stars. The delivery and purchase experience is 1 star. Home Depot and Home Depot online customer service are 5-stars.

Maybe it's just me (I've never been accused of being smart) but I find the assembly instructions very confusing. I got frustrated after a day and a half of trying unsuccessfully to assemble the saw and had to walk away from it. I haven't gone back but when I am up and running I'll let you know what I think of the saw.

The cast iron top and fence are great. Assembly was pretty easy even though some of the instructions had the wrong part letters listed. But it says it is 3hp and struggles to cut through 8/4 maple.

I’ve completed a couple projects and the saw works great. I recommend spending time with the complete manual, not just quick setup document before assembly.

There are 2 parts to this review, the saw itself and the shipping. The saw is amazing loads of power, plenty of weight to resist moving, and square and true out of the box. Assembly directions leave something to be desired thus 4 stars and not 5. Actually getting the saw was something else. The saw comes in 2 boxes on a pallet except I only got one box. Home Depot told me my only option was return and repurchase but it was out of stock. After a trip to the local store multiple calls to home depot and Delta and two tries to ship the rails I did eventually get all the parts but it was a pain. Its a good saw at a good price but be prepared for the shipping and missing parts fight.

Great Quality
I've had this saw for several months now, and I love it. I know that I may have lucked out, but everything from the purchase experience, through to the assembly, and finally to the quality of the machinery and the precision of the cuts has been top-notch. I really can't recommend this saw enough.To be fair, I've heard what sounds to be some legitimate complaints/criticisms from other folks - both on here and in other forums, but for my personal opinion and experience, I can't rate it highly enough.If you want to see firsthand, I actually posted a video detailing the Unboxing, Assembly, and Initial Review on my YouTube channel at

Excellent quality saw. Went together like a dream. Put it together by myself in a couple of hours. Only thing I would improve would be dust collection. It looses a lot of dust out the bottom like all contractor saws. Otherwise, it’s a 10.

Let's talk..
So ill start off saying THE SAW ITSELF IS GOOD but read on! I bought the delta 36-725t2 (steel wings 30"rip) got it delivered and began the setup. The video made by delta doesn't match the manual and the manual isn't correct either lol. They say use pack C hardware at one point to install back rail, yeah don't do that use pack d. Mine saw came with the stamped wings bent in the middle (20 to 44 thousands off) and the fence is warped in the middle. Ah the fence... beautiful fence with a cool flip down thing rip feature can't use because its on the left side of the fence! why delta why? Whoever the QC manager is, fire that person. The other annoying point here is not one description of these saws is accurate even on deltas own website! the 36-725t2 has steel wings, the 5100t2 has cast iron wings AND a steel wing and a single rail. im honestly not sure why they can't even get there descriptions correct. That's my cons lol but my pros are; the saw is so quite and other than a ics sawstop this dust collection is probably the best I've used. The saw build quality is nice aside from above issues. The fence slides beautifully and locks tight the height adjustment is easy and smooth so is the angle adjustment. so all in all the actual saw is great but the lack ofquality control and difficulty finding accurate and consistent information makes this s tough buy. Luckily for me Delta has amazing customer service people and they(Tarsha) upgraded me for free from the 36-725t2 to the 5100t2. Which so far does not suffer the same issues.
