« Part 16: Changing the arbor bearing... finally! Part 17 of Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw series Part 18: Disassembling the motor to replace the bearings. »

I decided to take the Unisaw home today since it was disassembled and reassemble it there.

The only problem is I have no room in the garage.

I may not get to work on my project as often because just getting to it will be a project.

First I had to move every in my half of the garage out to the driveway. I keep everything mobile.

I got my work bench cleaned off. I set my Unisaw motor there since changing the bearings will be my next project.

I had to temporarily assemble the saw and put it back on the mobile base. Right after I took this picture I fixed that bottom shelf so it was level.

First, I rolled in my Rockler clamp rack and then my Delta AP400 dust collector.

Then I rolled in my Skil XBench system with all the accessories which I keep on a hand truck. If I keep this system I will build a nice cabinet for it.

Next I rolled in a cart I use for finishing and the the Unisaw

Then my big red Craftsman tool chest, the cart with the small DeWalt vacuum and Craftsman table saw roll in.

My Rockler’s All Terrain Mobile Base fits between my toolbox and the Unisaw. I’m not sure what I will use it for yet.

It’s all in!

Darn. I forgot to turn off the radio.

I have more Honey Do items tomorrow so we shall see if I can sneak in any time to work on the motor.

I welcome your comments.

That’s quite a process to get to the tools. I’d be exhausted to work after moving all that stuff in.
