Delta Table Saw

I inherited a Delta Table 10" table saw that must have a bad bearing in the motor from the sound of it. The model number on it is K9430. Is this worth taking apart and putting in a new bearing, or should I just trash it?

I think the frame and workings of the saw may be worth keeping. Of course the motor is the heart of the machine. If you are adept at taking a motor apart and replacing the bearing, yes. However, you may find a replacement motor at a reasonable price from a supplier or rebuilder.
Check the pulleys and make sure they are attached to the blade arbor and motor securely. My Craftsman creates a vibration when one of the set screws tries to back our on occasion. A little LocTite 242 took care of it.
I don't know who you inherited it from, but none of my dad's woodworking tools have gone unrepaired.
