before. $500 on kijiji.
after. $30 in paint
I should have bought a quart of paint and mixed it in a spray gun, instead of using spray bombs or rattle cans, whichever you want to call them. The paint turned out a little streaky. I plan on putting this saw to use the way it was originally intended. I bought this saw off a machinist/welder who was using it as a workbench in the corner of his garage.

jet lock fence.. this is a big improvement over my Rockwell Beaver 9” tablesaw, and it’s devil inspired rail fence, which always binds and never locks down parallel to the blade. the unisaw fence rails are much beefier and the fence doesn’t bind AS MUCH. this may need to be replaced in the future with a Biesemeyer..
24” and 48” fence rails came included. currently using the 24” rails to take up less space. Eventually I will have longer rails. I was thinking (perhaps dreaming) that one day I’ll make the extension table out of a old slab of granite or something.
I have a few more modern modifications in mind before I finish this up. Will post.
here’s a little picture. the future planer stand, my old Beaver 9” , and the new 10” Unisaw.
