Delta T2 Fence #6: How to setup and install on a Craftsman tablesaw

2387 days ago by Jamie | 13 comments »

Since I have installed the Delta T2 fence on my Craftsman tablesaw, I have had a few people asking how I installed it, especially, how I installed the fence so that it would zero properly. For those that are thinking about installing this fence on a craftsman, you WILL have to drill new holes in the rails. You can use one of the existing holes, but you will not be able to ‘0’ the fence. I wish that I had taken pictures of each step to further clarify the information listed be...

Breathing life into a trusty saw

104 days ago by GodofBiscuits | 5 comments »

I bought my Craftsman table saw about 6 years ago now and it’s been a good saw as long as you took extra special care to ensure the horrid fence it came with was straight each and every time you moved it. The fence system that came in these saw is appalling to say the least and down right garbage when compared to a good biesemeyer style fence. Last week using the saw, I moved the fence and spent several minutes trying to get it straight so I didn’t ruin the beautiful piece of curl...

These are the pictures after I completely took this saw apart, lubed it, removed the majority of the rust, repainted, and reassembled. All i have to do now is to finish hooking up the switch and this saw will be ready for a top.

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

948 days ago 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...

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

911 days ago 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...

Replacing Start Capacitor on Delta 50-763 Dust Collector

568 days ago 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/

Unisaw 34-450 for $300

1163 days ago 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 ...

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

814 days ago 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...

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

1287 days ago 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 ...

UnsquareD #1: Sort of a new beginning, and a new Supernova (chuck)

381 days ago by PurpLev | 6 comments »

While I have been turning small stuff for a while, I guess I never really took the time to write about it. My first introduction to turning was when I was a youngster. my cousin was turning bowls and vessels and he would let me monkey around with the lathe just turning small spindles for fun – I never really learned techniques, but just went along with it picking it up as I go. As of late I started turning metal, and tried to turn a few small wooden parts, and while it works, I wo...
