First of all I just added a couple of videos to yesterday’s blog entry that I didn’t have time to upload last night.

Second of all… there is no second of all.

It does mount up fast, doesn’t it? Good idea on the gift for your wife.

By the way, if you don’t have them already, have you also considered adding in some saw blades and a dado set? ( I am sure that spending more money is probably the last thing you want to consider right now). :)

If the trunnion bearing you purchased is bronze, I believe there are 2, I would leave those alone and not worry about them. I have seen unisaws all the way back to ‘39 with the original bronze trunnion bearings in place. They are not a high wear item and are a press fit. The odds of beaking the trunnion bracket are very high if you attempt to press them in/out. If you dont have a parts breakdown of the trunnion/arbor assembly I would most definately get one and familiarize yourself with the assembly PRIOR to disassembly. There are some small spring washers and there could be some hidden fasteners that you may not see if there is a lot of old caked on sawdust. Also look at the orientation of the arbor bearings as they are removed. They should have an extended inner race on one side.
