« Part 3: Disassemble! (Don't worry Johnny 5 you're safe) Part 4 of Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw series Part 5: It's a sad day... »

Today I went into the shop to put the tools and equipment I used back where they go for the guys when they come into work on Monday morning… but I had to do just a little work. I’m not hooked or anything, I only work when I really, really need it.

I ordered replacement wheels for the HTC mobile base. I should have them on Monday.

If I had to take a guess, I would say that your “Boss” is for mounting a power switch?

I am not 100% but I think your hole is for mounting a brett guard. The guard is available from Delta as an option and is an overarm blade guard/dust collection port.

Thanks all.

Phred, youi were right. I thought that might be the case but I wasn’t sure.

Ken, I thought about that too but this boss ends up in the front of the saw so I didn’t really think that was it.

Andrew, the link you sent explained it perfectly (although hard to see).

Alistar, I see what you mean about that cable. I am not even sure what that is. I think it is an air hose.

The pictures/videos are bad because I didn’t turn the lights on since a was only going to be there a few minutes and the building has skylights.

Thanks again for looking.

Sorry about that kosta. I’m not sure what happened but I fixed it by moving the videos to youtube. I had them on picasa before. I guess it couldn’t handle them.

Thanks for stopping by.
