Unisaw 34-802 T2 Cleanup, Alignment and Modding

09-28-2015 07:28 PM by bmwman91 | 5 comments »

EDIT: It looks like wide images don’t fit well into the format here. Any tips on the recommended max image width to use and that sort of thing? 25% of the right side of most of my images seem to be chopped off, which I can fix by shrinking the images, but I feel like they would get pretty small in that case! Hello everyone. This is my first time posting something on here, after many years of lurking silently and absorbing a ton of knowledge from the good people on here. I figured tha...

Decided to work with my new tools for a simple project.Storage shelves to organize my future wood area. I decided to use my new table saw and ripped rhe pine square.Never used a dado blade, so I cut the front pibe to hide the plywood edge. I used my Kreg jig to pocket hole to keep the front pine clean.

1953 Delta Milwaukee 14" Band Saw Restoration #1: Introduction

08-28-2015 05:51 PM by onoitsmatt | 2 comments »

I should preface this blog with a note about myself. I recently shed most of my power tools in favor of old hand tools, like Stanley Planes, Disston saws, and old Braces/Bits and eggbeater drills. This was around December of 2014 (about 9 months ago as of this writing). The two power tools I decided to keep in the shop were a band saw and a drill press. Problem was, I didn’t own a band saw (at least not a decent one). So the search began. I hemmed and hawed about it, researched, a...

Table Saw Dust Collection #1: Upgrading My Table Saw's Dust Collection

05-17-2015 02:02 AM by GreaseMonkey2275 | 4 comments »

About fifteen years ago I purchased a Delta Contractor’s Table Saw and after sweeping up mountains of sawdust I decided that it was time to do this a little smarter. I bought a table saw dust bag which I can honestly say has served me well in the past but now that I have retired from the Air Force and don’t have to worry about moving weight anymore I’ve decided to add to my collection. The new additions have included a 1958 Shopsmith and my most recent purchase, a Jet dust...

Estate Sale Finds #3: - Delta Milwaukee 6" Jointer

04-24-2015 10:11 PM by Jeff | 9 comments »

Super excited about the deal I got today! So what did I find this morning as I went to a few Estate sales? An awesome 6” Delta Rockwell Jointer with a 3/4 hp motor. I have been wanting a jointer, but did not have the funds to go out and buy something new. I didn’t want a desktop jointer, reviews seems mixed, and I do not have room for a larger floor model. This is the perfect size for what I am doing right now. I know it does not look that great, but I really like these old ...

Tools have a mind of their own. #1: Now, Boys! No need for jealousy.

02-18-2015 04:11 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 5 comments »

I have owned a Delta Midi Lathe for several years… I mean maybe decades. Turned lots of pens, table legs, peppermills, chair rungs, and such. We’ve had our fun times and we’ve had our little spats, of course. Not going to mention that piece of maple you threw at me in ‘99. I’ve had very little trouble from this lathe. I did have to replace the tail stock thrust handle but that was my fault. Heavy-handed that day. Now, and only now this midi lathe has starting ...

Delta 36-725 Table Saw Blade Alignment Procedure

01-08-2015 01:49 PM by thetinman | 14 comments »

The Delta 36-725 table saw is a great tool designed and priced for the amateur woodworker and suitable for a professional shop where a less powerful motor is acceptable. I call saws like this Cadillac’s for Harry Homeowner. The two most often asked questions about the Delta 36-725 table saw are the best blades to use and how to properly align the blade. Understand that I am certainly not a woodworking expert nor an authority on table saws or blades. I am a retired engineer and have been an am...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Refurbish Project #1: Getting the Lathe Home and Mapping the Process

12-31-2014 03:38 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 5 comments »

The Lathe Here is the lathe. I bought it on Craigslist and got what I feel was a good deal. I went to Nashville and picked it up on Saturday. My plans are to replace the AC motor with a DC motor and make the lathe variable speed electronically. Empty Head This lathe has no drive pulleys. The Reeves drive broke and all the parts were trashed. So the headstock is empty except for the spindle and the indexing pin. Motor The AC motor is good so I will put it on eBay and...

The Ever Evolving Workshop #1: New Delta Unisaw with 52" Rip, Incra TS-LS and LEFT Side Router Table!

07-03-2014 03:49 AM by emrhappy | 5 comments »

I wanted to show you guys and gals my new setup. I recently purchased a Delta 36-L352 to replace MY broke down POS grizzly G0715P. I say that about the grizzly because like many others MY G0715P had a .020 deflection in the back of the blade when I raised it up or down! There was no setting that saw blade parallel with the miter slot. Grizzly wouldn’t stand behind it and said the trunions were probably broke and that I had the ‘wrong saw’ for building cabinets or anyth...

That One Thing #1: That one thing.

05-14-2014 12:45 AM by fumehappy | 3 comments »

About two weeks ago, I was browsing craigslist and saw an estate sale listed for that Friday. It promised buckets of tools, machinist equipment, and industrial stuff. It didn’t start till 11, and I knew that wasn’t gonna fly since I needed to be to work at 8:30. And it was in the opposite direction.But Saturday morning rolled around, and I found I was dreaming about it all night. So I said, why not, i’ll try for sloppy seconds. My wife, having recently realized just how...
