Well, after so many years wishing I had a good cabinet saw.. I finally picked up a Unisaw today. It is a Rockwell International Canadian version. 1970’s. 3hp 3phase. Not exactly sure what the story is to how it got from Canada to Kentucky, but maybe I’ll know someday. Would make a good conversation when showing the saw.
Here is a pic of what it looked like when I got it. It has the steel base, but the PO gave me a cast iron base also, which I am going to use. It also came with a biesemeyer 31” fence, motor adapter to use a regular mount motor, miter gauge, and a small extension table. Other than having a bunch of duct tape residue on it and being a bit saw-dusty, it’s actually in really good condition. I’m going to repaint it in Rustoleum Navajo white (kind of a cream/off white) and gloss deep blue. It has already been completely disassembled and the resto started after I brought it home today.
For the sake of having the same project in 2 places, I am going to put most all the restoration on OWWM.org. I’ll update this blog as I go, but if you want to see additional pics and writeup on it, you can go there at: OWWM
Here are the colors…
