|Starting out about 2PM|
|I will start by removing this melamine top|
|Fortunately there aren’t too many screws to remove most of them stripped out long ago|
|See what I mean?|
|I don’t like the way the frame is designed. Without the wood top there is nothing supporting the end of the Uniframe rail|
|So I removed the rail next. In hindsight, I should have removed it first. Although no harm was done.|
|It’s getting lighter.|
Removing the left extension table.
One piece at a time.
Not as rusty as it looks.
The Little Woman Called.
I got the top off.
|Unisaw with top removed.|
|Unisaw with top removed showing motor.|
I wanna get the saw out of the base.
It’s all about leverage.
My boss is a man of his word.
If you can hear the bearings… is that a bad thing?
Oh, THAT’s what that wire is for…
Securing the power cord.
Running the motor with no load.
Listen to this motor, please.
Well I finished working on it for the day abouit 5PM. That’s 3 hours in total. It took a heck of a lot longer than that to get this blog entry done. I wish I could have done it right from my iPhone as I was doing the work… hmmm, maybe I couild have to my mobile me account?
At any rate I bought a splitter and blade guard on ebay last night for $33. I guess I will need to start keeping track of these expenses to find out how much this $500 saw is really costing me.
