Part 1: The deal of a lifetime... my first Unisaw (maybe my one and only!)

07-29-2012 01:54 AM by MrMeasureTwice | 18 comments »

Fellow Lumberjocks,I submit to you the story of my Unisaw (so far…). On June 26th, a Unisaw popped up on Craigs List with a price of $300 – I hesitantly clicked expecting one of two things to happen. Either the posting would have been deleted already because I did not see it within 37 seconds of it being listed and sold, OR, it would actually be a heap of PARTS for a Unisaw. But, I clicked anyway… Lo and behold, it was still listed, and NOT a pile of parts! Immediately cl...

Fellow LumberJocks,I submit to you, the second installment of the Unisaw Experience… Day two plan: remove the table clean the interior of the saw inspect trunion ways clean ways of any crud/corrosion check motor clearance… Table removal was uneventful, but required assistance from my 20 year old son to put it aside once the bolts were removed.

Part 5: It is gone...

This is part 5 of this series, and the last entry. I know, I know, but some things have got to come to an end. I had to make a decision – a tough, life altering decision. My dilemma was, and still is, that I have a very narrow, one-car garage as my wood shop.
