The capacitor may not be bad. There are a set of points that may be corroded in the motor. They work with the capacitor on starting and then separate by centrifical force as the motor gets up to speed. I've saved several motors by cleaning the points. Thats a nice old machine. I hope that you plan to keep it. Good Luck, Rick

 A delta is one of the best table saw's ever made. I used a Delta Unisaw where I worked in a carpenter shop for over 30 years. In my own shop here at home I also have  delta 10". It would be money in the bank to take that  whole motor to a motor shop and let them go right thru it. A good D& C after all these years would be in store. If it is to bad just put a new totally enclosed, fan cooled one on of the same HP and RPM's.

It runs now as it is. There is a motor on it but it's a lower Hp.

I'm not sure what my plans are for it. It needs some work. I may put it up for sale for someone who will appreciate it note than me.

Good find.

Delta is a very good brand of woodworking tools. Very heavy and heavy duty.

It was included in the sale of my house. It's been in the basement for many years. The daughter said she remembers her dad using the saw when she was a little girl in the 60. I'm going to call delta and see if they can give me the information

That's a tank of a saw. Treat it just like a GT & restore it. Unknown what you could pocket on this one. I have done a few smaller tools & did well. Check this link out they might could help you with info. http://vintagemachinery.org/

it is keeper.  clean and fix it up.  it will last many more years.

 

my grandfather had one like it, but it has the jointer with it.

I was to be mine, but my brother has it.

my grandfather got it back in the thirties.

 

they are hard to find and were built to last.

if I remember right ours has a 1-1/2 hp motor on it.

the motor has been clean only once.

clean the table top and wax it.

 

you might not find another as good as it

Thank you for the information. I will decide what to do with it. I don't move fast usually. Probably be months before I mess with it again
