Topic tags/keywords: delta unisaw

Hey guys
I started rebuilding my delta unisaw and have finally made it to the outfeed table. I completely sanded it and should be ready for paint tomorrow but I have clue on how to remove the rollers. I’m sure I can paint it while they are on but it would make a world of difference if they were off. I would have mounted one side in and the other side plunged but that’s not the case. Both side are rigid as if the welded the frame while the rollers were in place. Anyone have a clue?

Looks like it was assembled and welded with all parts in place. I don’t see any hardware to form the “sandwiches”. I suppose an angle grinder could cut the welds but it is a great looking table and I personally wouldn’t attempt it…it’s pretty big and I doubt I could get it welded back together properly.

Hello Omar,
Many years ago I bought several rollers that look like the ones on your outfeed table and they have spring loaded pins on both ends. Have you tried to nudge them in with a flat blade screwdriver or other thin flat bar?
(Edit; I just re-read your post and it looks like you described what I asked in your 4th sentence. Still maybe some corrosion has caused the pins to stick.) Marc

Yeah I’m thinking it was welded in place. The pins have no give.

Grab the roller and pull or push on them. I’m certain they are spring loaded.The frame was welded and painted and the rollers were added later.

You are missing something. Those are standard conveyor rollers and I’ve never seen them that aren’t removable. The frame is welded and painted then the rollers are installed Have you called the manufacturer?

Your are probably correct…I guess the rollers had to be replaceable. Pins are on the rollers and fit into holes in the frame? Maybe as a test drill a hole in the outer frame (in line with a the pin) then use an awl or small punch to try to compress the pin?

I believe the unit was made by HTC. Have you called them?
