« Part 1: Disassembly Part 2 of Unisaw series Part 3: VFD bench testing 3 phase 3HP »

I have spent most of my time getting the top cleaned up and it looks pretty nice. There are some pock marks in the wing but I’m ok with those. Just got my arbor bearings and they are installed and the arbor bracket is back in place. Everything moves smoothly. Tomorrow night I hope to have a set of new belts installed.

The rest of my March is jam packed with work so my next installment will be delayed but it should be eventful. The VFD will be hooked up at that time! Sorry if I sound a little giddy but I am.

Barry,

The nice thing about an old cast iron top is the scratches and dings are testament to a useful life and gives it caracter. As long as it’s flat. Did you go with the link belts?

Wayne, not yet on the link belts. I had an opportunity to get a matched set of std. belts even before I got the saw, so I plan to use them. How about you, still using the linked belts?
