The Ever Evolving Workshop #1: New Delta Unisaw with 52" Rip, Incra TS-LS and LEFT Side Router Table!

55 days ago by emrhappy | 5 comments »

I wanted to show you guys and gals my new setup. I recently purchased a Delta 36-L352 to replace MY broke down POS grizzly G0715P. I say that about the grizzly because like many others MY G0715P had a .020 deflection in the back of the blade when I raised it up or down! There was no setting that saw blade parallel with the miter slot. Grizzly wouldn’t stand behind it and said the trunions were probably broke and that I had the ‘wrong saw’ for building cabinets or anyth...

Splitter from a shelf bracket

234 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

My new (to me) Unisaw didn’t come with any safety equipment, and I’ve been having trouble finding a splitter that I like, so I decided that until I find one I really like, I’ll just make one and add it to my new ZC throat plate. I laid in bed last night racking my brain over what material I might have that would be easy to work with and I remembered some old shelf brackets I wasn’t using. I popped the end cap off, cut the dog legs off, did most of the filing and shapin...

Unisaw Rehab #10: Reporting for Duty!

352 days ago by Don Broussard | 7 comments »

The new paint on the wings is dry and the saw is ready for reassembly (again). I installed the wings, the blade guard, fence rails and fence this morning. I did a short video of a through cut on a strip of 3/4” plywood but I’m not having any success posting it (yet). I noted in an earlier blog comment that the tip of the 10” blade, even at its lowest, it still above the top of the insert. This cut shows the height of the blade as a very small dado in 3/4” ply...

Unisaw Rehab #9: Slight Backtrack

354 days ago by Don Broussard | 8 comments »

I got back on the Unisaw rehab today. It was pretty hot in the shop, so I had to keep a towel handy to keep sweat off the cast iron. Weather guy tells me that the high temperature today was around 94F with humidity in the 80% area. Not a real surprise for south Louisiana in September though. I realized that I had not painted the edges of the cast iron top, so I removed them (with my wife’s help) and set the assembled top on my workbench. I flipped it over and removed the wings. ...

Mobile base for my old Unisaw

362 days ago by cpine | 3 comments »

I purchased a 1950 unisaw from a local man about a little more than a year ago. I finally got my 220 circuit in the garage workshop and I really needed mobile base for it. So in this project I build one with some pallet dunnage wood. Please watch and give your comments and likes if possible. Thanks so much. Chris Mobile base for Unisaw

Unisaw Rehab #7: Reassembly and Test Cut

384 days ago by Don Broussard | 22 comments »

Made some more progress today. I lightly sanded down the first spray finish coat and applied a second coat—looks pretty smooth. I put the top and wings face down on my workbench and attached the wings to the top. I carried the top (don’t think I have a hernia—yet) and laid it gently on the base. After putting the bolts attaching the top to the base finger tight, I mounted a 10”, 72 tooth blade on the arbor and aligned the miter slots to the saw blade with a c...

Unisaw Rehab #6: Belts On and First Finish Coat Done!

387 days ago by Don Broussard | 6 comments »

Short update on the Unisaw Rehab project. Picked up a matched set of belts for the Unisaw today. They are Jason A26 (4L280) belts. Ran some steel wool over the primer coat, blew and wiped it off, then applied one coat of Rustoleum Smoke Gray rattle can. My preference was for Machine Gray, but that was not available. Note that I did not paint the internal mechanism. Plan for tomorrow is to polish up the hand wheels. I picked up some metal and aluminum polish today. ...

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

641 days ago 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!)

760 days ago 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...

Unisaw #5: VFD mounting, T2 fence and nursing homes

834 days ago by barecycles | 11 comments »

Odd title I know, but bear with me here. My wife and I are in the home stretch with our utility room remodel so have been able to get my workshop back into some semblance of order. I’ve also been able to mount my VFD to the wall and get the Unisaw in place with the T2 fence mounted. The workshop is still in disarray until this remodel is completed so I cannot get to a lot of my equipment just yet. However, life has introduced another wrinkle that we are dealing with. My 87 year ol...
