When somebody thinks of ‘woodworking’, the Delta Porter-Cable brand should be the first to jump to mind.
The way they are doing this is with quality, look, and ease of use. For example, the new OMNIJIG comes with a Norm Abram CD and is very easy to use. The are merchandizing better with a new look and more information on the tool’s box.
Delta is going to a silver and black look with a gloss finish. A blue accent will give the Delta Woodworking Machinery a visual pop.
As for products, the Delta Midi Lathe will have better castings. Delta will be promoted as “The Measure of Precision”.
The Porter-Cable brand is upping their warranty to match DeWalt’s 3-Year Warranty / 1-Year Free Service / 90-Day Guarantee.
Delta is also coming out with new products, led by a new Hybrid Table Saw with a 50” Biesemeyer fence system and the premium 36-946 miter gauge. The model number of this saw will be 36-750B.
Delta has 3 new drill presses out, the 20-950, 17-959LX, and 17-950L. All currently have special pricing. Porter-Cable 890 Router has major upgrades, including a newly designed plunge base with dust collection.

The AP400 dust collector will be redesigned and launched under the new model number 50-720/CT. It has a nice new look and is 1-micron. You can expect Porter-Cable’s OmniJig sometime in the late first quarter, also.
Porter-Cable has redesigned their nailers. The BN125 Brad Nailer will be replaced by model number BN138. The BN200A Brad Nailer will be replaced by the BN200B. The NS100A Narrow-Crown Stapler will be replaced by the NS100B, and the NS150A replaced by the NS150B. All will have rear-exhaust and be oil-free to keep contaminents away from your wood. The nailguns will carry a new 3-year warranty, come in a nice new case, and include safety glasses. You can expect these changes around March of 2008.
