« Part 7: The week in review... Part 8 of Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw series Part 9: Saving the top »

It wasn’t a very productive day as far as getting any work done on my Unisaw but it was very exciting.

So it came with a surprise (to me anyway)

Thanks for the update! Something to look at after you get your Saw back together.
The Excalibur or the Delta Uniguard System. Pretty cool.. Excalibur acts as a guard and dust collection system. I like the Delta Uniguard because each blade guard acts independently.

Thanks for the update. I can understand your frustration about work interfering with refurbishing the saw. But it is coming together nicely. Looking forward to the next update.

wow both fences i find both to have their pros and cons but i love the unifence so that’s what i have the big downfall with the uni is attaching jigs and fixtures to it but i usually make my fixtures so that i can remove the extruded aluminum fence and attach them to the head peace of the system i also have extra rails for it so i can use the head elsewhere in the shop. but for if simple and straight forward is what you want the bysmier is the way to go. you can just build things to slip over it. your makeing good progress on the saw its well worth the wait i was in your same boat a few short months ago and have to say i love my “new to me” saw keep up the good work.

Good fences make good neighbors.

You should be all set ;-)

Hi BWW and Neil,

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I haven’t been able to finish this project yet and I suspect if I ever got the time it would only take two more days.
