Delta Unifence rip fence

05-22-2013 04:28 PM by amagineer | 8 comments »

Hi all, I just had to tell someone about the Delta Unifence Saw Guide 30” I just bought for $50. I just drilled two holes in the aluminum rail and mounted it on my Delta table saw and it works great. It says 1996 so it is an older model, but is in great condition and built to last. I have been struggling with the rip fence that came with the saw (that I bought in 1996) every time trying to get it parallel with the blade. It would either start to bind and burn the blade or wood or give m...

Delta Contractor Style Table Saw Storage Cabinet #1: Doing the plan in Sketchup

05-21-2013 04:42 PM by Harley130 | 1 comment »

Spent several hours yesterday putting together a drawing in Sketchup (SKU) for the under the wing storage cabinet for my Delta Contractor table saw. I have a Biesemeyer fence on the saw with the 30” extension so I have a large space underneath the right wing. The tall drawer on the right is a pull out that will have a panel in the middle, with access to both sides, that will allow me to store saw blades, dado blades, etc. on dowel pegs. The drawers is where I can keep various items u...

Tools of the Trade - The Evolution of My Woodworking Tools

03-07-2013 02:35 PM by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

Every wood worker has to start somewhere. My somewhere began with the purchase of a Shop Smith and this began the evolution of my woodworking tools. My mother and father had a friend that was selling their Shop Smith multi tool system back in the mid 1990’s and I was lucky enough to purchase it. This Shop Smith is perfect for doing small projects but not big construction jobs like I was used to. I decided that buying this system gave me a reason to put my creativeness to work and begin doing ...

Replacing Start Capacitor on Delta 50-763 Dust Collector

01-11-2013 12:50 AM by ToddinNH | 0 comments »

Recently my Delta 50-763 dust collector stopped working. When I turned on the power all I’d hear was a loud humming noise but no motor revolutions. After doing some research and speaking with the folks at Delta we determined it was a bad motor starting capacitor. If you’d like to learn more about how to replace it please check out an article I wrote on my own site. http://www.homeconstructionimprovement.com/how-to-replace-start-capacitor-dust-collector-motor/

Score! #1: Delta Jointer circa ???

01-08-2013 12:31 PM by FeralVermonter | 15 comments »

We were over at my mom’s place the other night, and the guy she’s been shacked up with for the last twenty years (they refuse to get married, but they’re lifers) offered me his old delta 6” jointer out of the attic of his shop. Needs a little cleaning, as you can see, but he told me it worked just fine. Well… my new-found tool-restoration enthusiasm got the better of me, and I had the thing in dissected not long after taking this photo (without ever taking ...

1940's Delta Unisaw #1: Should I Buy?

11-25-2012 01:55 AM by thewoodworker01 | 4 comments »

I found a 1940’s Delta Unisaw on ebay for 175 bucks. It is rusted and has a big motor in it. He says it is single phase with 1750 as the rpm. The cast iron on the top is rusted, but could be removed with chemicals, a grinder, or electroalisis. This one has the rare oval motor cover on it as well, it also has the original switch cover, but not switch. I’m not sure if the motor works or not. Should I buy this or not, I’m debating. I’ll probably restore it back to origina...

The Unisaw Experience #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...

Final Entry - Achieved Bliss

06-06-2012 02:26 PM by GlennsGrandson | 3 comments »

Knives took longer than I was told to sharpen, personally I think they lost them for a while because when I called them they acted like they had no idea what I was talking about. Anyhow, I got them about 10 days ago and finally had all day yesterday to sit down with it, make sure everything was level and set all the blades. It sure felt good to see chips sliding down the shoot after several hours that I’ve put into this thing. I like it so much that I don’t even like getting it...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #11: These bearings cost HOW MUCH?!

05-09-2012 05:22 PM by GlennsGrandson | 12 comments »

I took the bearings in to a local auto store to check on replaceing them (Bearing #:8502-k and 8503-k). They want $48 a piece for them! Wowzas. I found them online after S&H for about $63 total. I tihnk I’ll do that. But then I am getting antsy and the company told me they are a special order part so it’d probably be 3 weeks before they even ship! So my dilema is that I want to cut now, but don’t want to spend $100. So I was talking to my dad and he suggested if they wer...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #10: Looks complete, but it isn't.

05-03-2012 01:59 PM by GlennsGrandson | 5 comments »

Just need the new bearings and the knives sharpened, hopefully chips flying by the end of next week! Oh, and I need to make a back door yet. It grew wheels. Got the set of pullers from Harbor Freight yesterday, 4 different sizes, $25, works great. Got the casters from HF too, had to drill out the prexisting 3/8” holes to 1/2” to accomadate the casters. Two locking in the front and two freely moving on the back. Pullers and head with bearings Somethings missing&#...
