DELTA® Unveils New Pneumatic Tools, Hybrid Style Cabinet Saws and Air Filtration Systems
ATLANTA (Aug. 26, 2004) - DELTA® introduced a new line of pneumatic nailers and staplers, Hybrid Style Cabinet Saws, and air filtration and dust collection systems during the 2004 IWF on Aug. 26 through Aug. 29 at booth 5413 in the Georgia World Congress Center. The new DELTA ShopMaster(TM) pneumatic nailers and staplers target novice woodworkers and intermediate do-it-yourselfers, while the new left-tilt Hybrid Style Cabinet Saw line, and air filtration and dust collection systems are geared toward professional woodworkers. "Beginning woodworkers and do-it-yourselfers now have the option of using pneumatic nailers with all the features of professional nailers without investing a large amount of money," stated Brad Thompson, associate product line manager of pneumatics for Delta®. "The nailers are easy-to-use through a compact design, and every setting or adjustment on the tool can be made without the need of any tools." Ideal for furniture assembly, molding and interior trim, hardwood flooring, paneling, cabinets and craft projects, the new line of nailers and staplers includes the 1 1/4-inch brad nailer (model DBN125), the two-in-one nailer and stapler (model DBS125), the 1-inch narrow crown stapler (model DNS100) and the 1 1/4-inch brad nailer and compressor combo kit (model CFDBN125). The nailers come equipped with a tool-free depth adjustment for proper setting of nail heads in the work piece, a tool-free 360-degree adjustable exhaust to direct air-flow in the desired direction, a sequential trigger to deliver only one nail at a and a jam release mechanism to clear problem nails. Equipped with a removable non-marring nose tip that protects against tool marks on the work surface, and a low nail indicator enables the user to easily determine when nail replacement is needed. Each nailer also includes a 1/4-inch quick connect with a dust cap, oil and a storage case. The DBN125 uses 3/8-inch to 1 1/4-inch, 18-gauge brad nails and is packaged with 1,000 fasteners of 1 1/4-inch in length. The DBS125 uses the same size brad nails as the DBN125 as well as 1/4-inch crown 18-gauge staples from 1/2-inch to 1-inch, and is packaged with 1,000 1 1/4-inch brad nails and 1,000 1-inch staples. The DNS100 uses 3/8-inch to 1-inch, 18-gauge narrow crown staples. The DBN125, DNS100 and DBS125 will be available in October 2004 for approximately $69, $69 and $99 respectively. The 1 1/4-inch brad nailer and compressor combo kit, CFDBN125, provides everything the do-it-yourselfer needs to get started. The combo kit includes the DBN125 brad nailer and a CP200 compressor that is very quiet (75dBA), has a 2-gallon air tank, is very lightweight and operates at 100 psi. The attractive, yet functional shroud has a built-in handle to aid in mobility, built-in cord wrap and an accessory storage compartment with a lid. The pump is oil-free for durability and low maintenance, and the regulator and two air pressure gauges allow for proper matching of air pressure to an application. The combo kit also includes a 25-foot coil air hose, an eight-piece inflation kit and an interactive CD-ROM with 15 do-it-yourself woodworking projects. The CFDBN125 will be available in October 2004 for approximately $159. The quality associated with the Delta® Contractor's Saw® line has been used to create a line of left-tilt Hybrid Style Cabinet Saws, the 36-714 family, which will be represented at the show. The new saws have an enclosed base with an integrated dust chute to provide effective dust collection. The dust chute is removable making it easy to bolt the saw to the floor. The 1 3/4 HP motor is fully enclosed in the cabinet underneath the table, reducing the overall footprint of the unit, and is attached to the table top enabling the user to move the saw without impacting the blade alignment. There also is a motor-reset button located on the switch box instead of the motor, and a hinged motor cover to allow easy access to the motor. Each left-tilt Hybrid Style Cabinet Saw also has a push-button switch with a paddle over off button for quick, easy access, and foot levelers allowing for up to a 1-inch adjustment to provide custom leveling on uneven surfaces. The saws come with one of three different 30-inch fence options including the DELTA® T2-30, Unifence® U30 and Biesemeyer® BC30. The new line of saws will be available the first quarter 2004 starting at approximately $799. DELTA® also will highlight its new dust collection and air purification systems used to filter the air in home and professional workshops. The new dust collectors, models 50-760, 50-761, 50-762, 50-763, 50-764 and 50-765, come equipped with a 1 micron filtration bag with and a dust intake which can be configured to face up or down. Quick snap-in bag rings are easy to install and eliminate the cumbersome task of attaching metal cam-over-lock style straps. The units come in one box and can be assembled easily. Model selection is contingent on the dust collection needs of the workspace. Model 50-760 weighs 100 pounds and has a 1 1/2 HP, 120 volt to 240 volt, single phase induction motor. The unit has a filter bag area of 20 1/2 square feet and filters 1,200 cubic feet per minute (CFM).

Models 50-760, 50-761, 50-762 and 50-763 will be available in September 2004 for approximately $309, $599, $769 and $799 respectively.
