In my last post I walked through prepping and painting the table.

Parts ready

Parts ready for assembly

I have finally gotten the whole table put together.  I was able to find a great belt that works and I tested the saw last night.  It all works!!  I am going to try and make a plate cover and sled this weekend.  I hope it comes out OK.

Here are my finished product pictures:

I feel like this turned out AWESOME! I really enjoyed working on this table and look forward to building some incredible furniture and wood projects with it.  Although- It was a huge frustration and disappointment to me at how hard it is to get OEM or direct parts for this saw.  Most of the important parts I am missing are no longer produced or in stock.  This included the plate for the saw hole and the blade guard.  Additionally I found that Delta has a 2 week backlog on just shipping a part.  I eventually found some of the parts I needed at Sears Parts Online.  I ordered a belt and it should be here in a day or so.  This was not an expensive project and lots of fun.  I believe I have a very solid table that looks great.  If anyone knows what a table like this is worth or has any feedback on parts or general ideas- PLEASE post on the comments below.
