Here are some pics of the saw after days of hand wire brushing, power wire brushing, hand and power sanding, scotch bright cleaning and degreasing. With a shot of the base for a reminder of how bad it was. I have not gotten up the gusto to start working on the base yet. So far I have determined that the switch will need to be replaced and repositioned, the motor and arbor bearings amazingly seem in good shape no strange sounds or wobbles. The hand-wheel is just in bad shape this is how it loo...
Noticed that a few parts have been piling up in the shop, a base here, a frog there, a few handles piled up on the bench. I had an idea to take some of these parts, and build a “user” plane out of them. Lets see, have some frogs… But not the right style. both were Union frogs. I did have some handles to use.. I could paint the black one again… Had a few front knobs, as well Well two anyway. I could use the one with the chipped up base. needed s...
It has been about 60 days since I have set foot in my garage workshop due to the relentless Summer heat here in Las Vegas. I have a portable swamp cooler and a couple of fans that help a lot, but once we hit triple digits for more than a couple of days in a row, I find my motivation to finish projects or to start any new ones, goes North for the Summer. This is a photo of my garage thermometer that I took on August 15, 2012: Here are a couple of videos showing what I have been doin...

Ok went and picked up another unisaw. Look at this junk it is not painted brown this is rust!Thought I’d show how bad they can get when left out in the weather. I was told this is only about a year of buildup but I am skeptical. I’ll let you know how this works over the next few days.
We had a new family move in on our street a few weeks ago, & since they were downsizing from their previous house, they had a lot of stuff they just didn’t want anymore which they ended up just putting in the garage. So, one thing led to another and I got a old table saw. It’s a 1973 Craftsman saw with a 1.5HP 3450 rpm hp induction motor. The top has a moderate amount of rust, most of which was removed in about 10 mins with a wire brush. There’s still some left, which...
That I took upon myself. Got a box in the mail. Opened it up to…. WOW! Rusty and Crusty! Made of a Witch’s Brew and set some thing to soak awhile. I also got some supplies in house, charged up the cordless drill’ batteries, both of them. Tub for the soaking was from the Hospital stay last year. Didn’t have anything to “shock” it with, so, time for the wire wheels, and some sandpaper…Got the small items cleaned up a bit… ...
