Rockwell/Delta Homecraft 10" Bandsaw Restoration #1: The Beginning

03-27-2012 12:00 PM by Tyrone D | 12 comments »

Hello,I found the best find ever in my life. I found a Delta Homecraft 10” Bandsaw in an alleyway cast away near a “free” sign. I thought to myself, “That bandsaw deserves better and I took it home.There she is in her miskept beauty. On of the things that really pecks my brain is the stand. It says, “Property of CC Wakefield & Co. Ltd.” on it. Charles Cheers Wakefield is the founder of C.C.Wakefield & Co(Now known as Castrol). What’s weird is ...

Tool Refurb #1: Delta/Rockwell Unisaw

03-17-2012 02:16 AM by Joekwon80 | 10 comments »

I’ve been searching craigslist for that perfect table saw for a month now it seems and lo and behold the table saw that is perfect for me popped up and I was lucky enough to grab it. I paid all of 200 dollars for a 10” Delta/Rockwell 1.5 HP unisaw in working condition. I was walking through the Nelson Atkin’s Museum in Kansas City, MO in fact when I came across it and I immediately started making calls to make sure I could secure it. Being on tour at the moment my buddy J...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #1: The Day I got it

02-02-2012 04:50 PM by GlennsGrandson | 4 comments »

I have already posted in forums on this topic but I had a suggestion that this may be a good idea to update my restoration status as I go. So I found this Rockwell/Delta 37-220 6” Jointer on CL the other day, asking $150, I drove 40 miles to look at it. Talked him down to $100 rather easily being it was missing the table out lock knob, the back door for the enclosed baseis also missing, as well as the beds being coated in rust, and the end of the cord has cardboard and electrical tap...

Delta T2 36-T30 Fence on a Grizzly G1022Z Table Saw

12-28-2011 07:33 AM by superstretch | 5 comments »

INTROFor Christmas, my bro and I gave my dad the above mentioned fence as a gift. I had read in a few places that people had successfully (albeit blasphemy) mounted this fence to a G1022Z. I had my reservations, but after looking at the equivalent Shop Fox and Vega models (waaay more expensive), we decided to pull the trigger and get one from a well-respected buyer on ebay. At the same time, ebay was running a ‘fast and free’ shipping promotion. I ordered the fence on a Tuesday an...

Unisaw 34-450 restoration #1: Starting from zero

12-02-2011 07:51 AM by Alexdi | 4 comments »

About three months ago, I wanted to build a small furniture piece for my rec room. This quickly ballooned (as these things do) into putting together a full workshop. The plan to pick up an old $100 portable saw morphed into a recent contractor saw, and then on a whim, into a cabinet saw. Here’s what I discovered: The saw: There are no pictures of the saw fully assembled because it was dark when I bought it and in pieces when I got it home. A few shots of some parts: I’...

Unisaw 34-450 for $300

05-27-2011 01:39 AM by cranesgonewild | 19 comments »

Yup, you read that correctly.I’ve been on a search for a while now trying to find a half decent table or cabinet saw. I’ve jumped back and forth from used on Kijiji to a new Ridgid 4512, back to used, then I was going to buy a new Grizzly G0690, right up until Monday. That’s when I got the call. My brother in law sent me a link Monday morning to a Rockwell/Delta Unisaw 34-450 on Kijiji that was posted late the night before. It was a really nice looking saw with no damage ...

Workbench #9: Roubo needs some legs

03-06-2011 03:38 AM by HungryTermite | 2 comments »

Today was a fun day! 1st up today was to put the holdfast holes in the legs. This started on the back side of the legs buy counterboring a 1-3/8 hole using a forstner bit. The depth of the counterbore is 1-1/2 inches and this leaves 3-1/2 inches of leg left for the holdfast to grab on to. The Grammercy holdfasts I have supposedly do not work well in pieces thicker than 4 inches. One of the holes lined up with a large knot that was filled with epoxy. You can see here just how far down ...

A workshop out of the floodplane #4: Delta Fence on the craftsman table - Where to drill the holes?

01-22-2011 09:39 PM by withheld | 2 comments »

as I mentioned in the previous post, I started working on refitting my Craftsman 10” table saw with a Delta T2 fence, based on Jaime’s blog posts. I have everything measured and marked but I’m not at all clear on how high the front rail (or the rear rail, for that matter) should go relative to the table. Jaime mentioned drilling the holes offset vertically from the manufacturer’s holes, but he just said “a bit” I didn’t see any other real indication ...

A workshop out of the floodplane #3: A new fence for the old saw

01-19-2011 05:20 PM by withheld | 0 comments »

Based on Jamie's blog entries on upgrading a Craftsman table saw with a new delta T2 fence, I decided to do the same.The fence arrived last night I might need some better drill bits for the job and a good center punch, if I understand his blog entries, but it sounds like the thing to do is proceed very slowly and carefully. Which in my case means measure 10 times, cut once. As an aside the thing the fence is resting on is a small pegboard tool holder I started working on. Given my skill...

Help me choose my first table saw!

01-28-2010 05:09 PM by Jonathan | 18 comments »

As you can read by the title, I do not have, nor have I ever owned a table saw. And I think it’s about time I acquired one. I have a project I will be starting of built-in bookcases with a faceframe and doors, plus an adjoining mantel that I feel will be a heck of a lot easier to complete if I have a table saw for the task. That project is here http://lumberjocks.com/JonathanG/blog/13322 if you would like to give any input, advice or thoughts on that. (Beginning here, the next three ...
