« Part 2: Rockwell Unisaw Part 3 of machine restorations series no next part

so I finished up the Rockwell today, my brother had some 3/8 cold rolled steel plate cut with a water jet, drilled and tapped with fine thread. a hefty bolt will act as the foot for the levelers

my dad helped me weld the pieces in, good father/son project for fathers day

good penetration, shouldn’t go anywhere

coat of paint.. wait til it dries

re-assemble

and i needed some help lifting this cast iron behemoth onto the base without scratching the paint

I might sell this, I might keep it. I’m undecided. I had to spend 48$ on a 4 prong plug that’s compatible with the plug on the wall. it is shared between a welder, a metal lathe, this table saw and a Rockwell jointer
