Delta T3 Table Saw Fence

02-06-2018 01:00 AM by IantheTinker | 12 comments »

This is my new T3, freshly installed today after drilling a couple holes in my cast iron top. I did use some existing holes, and therefore the fence center does not line up with my saw blade, which in turn renders the tape useless. I had planned on shifting the tape, but soon after installation I realized it wasn’t a taped on rule, but some sort of paint or powder coating. I like the extra rip capacity I have with the current installation (31 3/4”), and the left side does not block as much of...

Delivery Frustrations!

02-01-2018 01:08 AM by IantheTinker | 5 comments »

I placed an order with Home Depot for the Delta T3 table saw fence on January 17th. I was told estimated delivery was the 26th, then I was told that it would be by the 31st. However, I just saw that they have switched it to “by Feb. 5th”. I also noticed that there are two departure scans from two different places, one from Illinois on the 24th and one from California on the 29th, so there are apparently two separate pieces for the delivery. I am just frustrated that they switch around the ...

Tool Trek #3: The Search for Unifence

07-03-2017 05:15 PM by magaoitin | 0 comments »

This was a busy weekend for me to fix tools. I have needed a new Unifence from the day I bought my cabinet Unisaw. Being an auction junkie, I picked up a Delta Unisaw 34-802 Type 1 with the 52” Unifence, at an online auction a while back for $200. I did not get a chance to go down and view the saw before I bid, and there was only a single photo for the online auction. With an actual dedicated shop that has room for big equipment, I figured it was time. It was a gamble but all the parts lo...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #4: Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #4: Getting Pullies running True and Accurate

01-16-2017 08:56 PM by Pete_LJ | 1 comment »

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you on this project. Honestly, we had a renovation on the house going on which required all my attention. Let me recap a little regarding where I was back at my last entry, hurdles, solutions and new issues. In my last entry, I had lined up the belt and pulleys by eye. Additionally, I had a custom keyway made by the local machinist whereby the 46-715’s 3mm key slot was able to mate to the keyway 5/16” (equivalent to 8mm) slot of the M...

Questions about my new Biesemeyer fence #1: Need some advice....

11-11-2016 08:30 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 2 comments »

My new Delta table saw came with a Biesemeyer fence. My old Delta had a unifence. Now, I did like the unifence and found it to be rock solid and versatile. I particularity like the flip stop on the bottom of the rail. Man, I used the stew out of that feature. Now, today….the Biesemeyer fence doesn’t have this feature. I am hoping my LJ buddies out in Workworkland can give me a hand. (poet and don’t know it) What do you all use to ‘remember’ settings on your &#...

New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #3: Part 3 - Fitting Belt and Determining Linear Location of Driven Pulley

06-13-2016 02:36 PM by Pete_LJ | 3 comments »

06132016 It was a busy weekend and I did not get a lot done on this project. But I did make some progress. I was able to fit the motor to the swivel shaft and box while mounted to the lathe. I need to fix the linear position left to right for the hub and driven pulley. I also need to get the tensioner fabricated and adjusted. I have some pics for you with the motor and shaft in rough position and also the driven pulley/hub. The bungee cord (pictured below) is just being used tempora...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #2: Fitting the Driven Pulley and Fabbing Support for Motor and Swivel Bar

06-06-2016 07:15 PM by Pete_LJ | 1 comment »

06062016 I got the rough version of the box built and attached to the back of the lathe. In addition, I decided to go with the first alternative on mounting the driven pulley (namely, Maska Pulley Hub with three fasteners to be attached through holes that need to be drilled accurately in pulley). I created two wooden plugs using two hole saws: i.) 1 7/8”, and ii.) 1 1/8”. Neither hole saw created the perfect size plug. So I wrapped electrical tape around the 1 7/8” plug (actually 1.579” fo...

New Shop in the Raw #5: "Uni" = One - a very heavy one

12-12-2015 02:55 AM by builtinbkyn | 14 comments »

After considering asking some friends to come help me move the Unisaw and drop it from the furniture cart to the floor, which was a total of five inches, I decided to take this task on myself. I have no doubt they would have had no issue in doing so, but I figured I’d save everyone involved the risks of crushed toes, fingers and the possibility of a hernia. The saw cabinet and top probably weigh in at about 525lbs or so. Besides it’s close to the holiday and I’m sure they...
