Well Part 2 of this blog started out nicely. I was able to sell my old Delta contractors saw today so in addition to the extra scratch that gives me I also have more room to work. I’ve got 2 motorcycles that I need to finish up and get out of the garage/workshop then I can really get busy with the Unisaw.
I have disassembled much of the saw and new arbor bearings are on their way as well as belts. I think I’ve got the wiring figured out. Looks like an aftermarket transformer was installed but that is not real important as I won’t be using this stuff anyway. Most of the wiring will need to be replaced but I think if I look real hard in my shed I will find all of the 4 connector wiring I will need.
I was about to open the box containing the new T2 fence and felt like “The Old Man” in Christmas Story – overcome by what was in there. What a beautiful sight! Can’t wait to get it all assembled.
I’m really not anticipating repainting anything. I like the worn look of the case so it will probably just get a good cleaning.
I’m still amazed at the ease with which the handwheels operate the lift and tilt. So much different than the contractor saw. Below are some of the most recent pics.
