My 1997 Delta Unisaw 36-815 Refurbishing #6: Assembling rails and fence parts

02-02-2016 04:11 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

Just about done with the tear down and re-assembly of this Unisaw. After last blog entry and before this one, I had to ask advice about belts & such. You can read it here in the forums: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/141986 What a great adventure this is. Rails & fence mostly assembled. Cast iron top miter slots have been aligned with the saw blade. But now comes the next phases: mobile platform and consideration of slapping my Bosch 4100 into the right wing extension and ong...

My 1997 Delta Unisaw 36-815 Refurbishing #2: Working the table top cast iron

01-18-2016 06:48 AM by Holbs | 6 comments »

What I found that works for me: ROS & 3M pad for rough work. I swap to 320 then 600 wet/dry sandpaper for hand sanding with WD40 as lubrication. I will use denatured alcohol to clean off the top then wax later as I still have the miter slots to work on next time. I was smart :) Cut a 55 plastic gallon trash bag in 1/2 and laid ontop of my new work table.As it arrives in my garage: First general pass with my ROS & pad: After ROS & pad: After razor blade use to remove ...

My 1997 Delta Unisaw 36-815 Refurbishing #1: Tear Down

01-17-2016 07:25 AM by Holbs | 10 comments »

Spent most of this Saturday tearing down everything that I could. Started off removing the top that had NO shims at all. Found white power everywhere from the cultured marble cutting that was done on this machine. Took time to air blast and brush out all that I could. ————————— Took a picture of the electrical switch for future hook ups since I have to remove the cord & motor. —————R...

New Shop in the Raw #7: Unisaw Outfeed Table

01-09-2016 01:59 AM by builtinbkyn | 6 comments »

Started this a few days ago, but haven’t had much opportunity to be in the shop to get it finished. I ran into an issue of my own making. I saw it coming, but thought “Ah maybe it won’t happen.” I used a piece of 3/4” AC for the bottom of the torsion box. It was a little warped but thought it would get pulled back when it was glued and screwed to the MDF that already had the center cells glued to it. Figured the 3/4” MDF with the grid was pretty rigi...

Unisaw 34-802 T2 Cleanup, Alignment and Modding

09-28-2015 07:28 PM by bmwman91 | 6 comments »

EDIT: It looks like wide images don’t fit well into the format here. Any tips on the recommended max image width to use and that sort of thing? 25% of the right side of most of my images seem to be chopped off, which I can fix by shrinking the images, but I feel like they would get pretty small in that case! Hello everyone. This is my first time posting something on here, after many years of lurking silently and absorbing a ton of knowledge from the good people on here. I figured tha...

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

07-03-2014 03:49 AM 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

01-05-2014 08:55 PM 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!

09-09-2013 07:33 PM by Don Broussard | 9 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

09-08-2013 01:59 AM 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

08-30-2013 11:18 PM 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
