New (used) Delta Table Saw #1: Delta Unisaw...so excited!!!

2129 days ago by woodchips | 19 comments »

Well lumberjocks I just had to share my good fortune / blessing (whatever term you prefer) with ya’ll. While I’m going to school I’m working for the Plant Services dept of the university in the carpentry dept. It’s pretty much the perfect job for me and i use it as my stress relief from school work. the carpentry dept is the most called on dept when things go wrong cause we can fix anything, right? well needless to say we get around campus quite a bit and the other...

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

2379 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...

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.

Reviews - Tools #1: Delta Shopmaster Bandsaw - SM400 - A Budget Bandsaw

2468 days ago by Dekker | 2 comments »

So I finally made an excuse to buy a new tool – a bandsaw to be precise. The problem is that I can not foresee a need for a heavy-duty model, nor can I justify its expense at this time. For that money, I could simply ask my wood supplier to resaw it for me for a few bucks. I went to my local BORG and could only find mid-priced models, $400-800. This was more than I was willing to spend. Then I went to Canadian Tire, since there is currently a 1/3 off sale (thanks MsDebbieP for pointi...

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

849 days ago by Tyrone D | 10 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 ...

Unisaw 34-450 for $300

1155 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 ...

New (used) Delta Table Saw #2: Here it is...now gotta clean it up.

2115 days ago by woodchips | 7 comments »

Well I was finally able to go pick the saw up and I’m every bit as excited as I was when I first bought it. I’m going to be doing a bit of work on it before using it. I need to rebuild the right wing extension and I’m going to build a router table into it. I also need to give it a good cleaning inside and lube it with some sort of dry lube (any suggestions?). The cast iron surface has some very minor rust spots that will need to be removed, what would be the best way t...

AP400 filter upgrade!

1850 days ago by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

I got an exciting shipment in today – a canister filter for my Delta AP400 Shopmaster 1HP dust collector! Suction has been declining a lot these last months. The bag has been getting dirty but I just hate spending an hour blowing dust out of the thing. I’m always in a rush, stealing time wherever I can to work on something. It’s also a really filthy task. Some people have backyard decks as big as my entire back yard, and I end up getting dust all over my house, garage...

Unisaw 34-450 restoration #1: Starting from zero

966 days ago 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’...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #6: Tedious Tape-up... and jigs? Bed/Fence protection??

820 days ago by GlennsGrandson | 4 comments »

Hello again, I’ve got quite a bit accomplished since my last post, but it took much longer than anticipated. I had to finish cleaning a few little pieces here and there and wipe off the never ending paint dust with mineral spirits. Once I’d clean a piece I’d tape it off, lots of masking tape and razor blades. The only pieces I have left are the pieces of the head. I have to clean up the head yet and probably replace the bearings, they felt good and sounded good but they prob...
