Old tool treasures from the flea market: Delta/Simonds Saw vintage dado sets.

When I go on my weekly sharpening run to the Arundel Flea Market, I always take a little time to wander around and see if I can find some “barn fresh” tools to restore. You just never know what’s going to turn up.

Today’s find is a pair of vintage Delta Milwaukee dado sets.

The first set (left) is a Delta No. 333 6″ dado stack. The second set (right) is a Delta No. 33-207 8″ dado stack. These dado sets were made by Simonds Saw and Steel, so they were top quality. Both stacks date from the 1940s and include all their inserts and a pair of great slide top wooden boxes for storing. Another fine vintage tool that still can’t be beat today (especially by anything with Made In China on it!).

I cleaned these sets thoroughly, sharpened them, and they’re both available for $25 each. If you’re interested in either one of these super vintage dado sets, drop me an email or give me a ring at 207-399-7108!
