Well, I did it
I had the extra $$$ and I couldn’t stand being ahead so I ordered a new Delta unisaw. It comes with a Biesemeyer fence and short extension table. I have no use for either one so I lumped it in with my ‘old’ unisaw and sold it with the saw.
I kept my Incra TS-LS fence but had to buy an upgrade which consisted of a fence and rear brace to make up the difference between the 27 1/2” depth of the old table to the 31” on the new saw table.
I did buy it from CT Power Tools and they were kind enough to give me a discount for being a vet. Free shipping and no tax so I saved enough to buy more ‘stuff’, don’t know what that’ll be yet but I’ll find something.
One of the real nice features of the new saw is the dust collection – it has a collector just below the blade that fits into a “y” and a single pick up on the outside of the saw cabinet. I’m anxious to see how well it picks up because the old saw really had no dust collection at all because of all the open slits, holes etc in the cabinet.
I got the saw yesterday and my fence upgrade today and made saw dust just moments ago.

Nice! Fine looking saw. Hopefully it is a long and happy relationship.

Thanks – I’ll be 75 in a few day, wonder if I’ll wear it out ?

Beautiful machine! I guess we’ll be seeing less of you around here for a while!

Brian,
That’s the incra TS-LS
look at the little red knob near the fence, with that I can dial and shave off .001 move on to another cut and come back and reset to the previous cut and be exact. Not very important to some but imperative for some of my projects. If you’re curious google incremental tools and look around. I find it easier to dial a measurement over slapping the fence and hoping I get it right the second time.

There’s nothing like that new Unisaw smell! Hope the dust collection works out great for you, I finally got it pretty good on my Unisaw but it took a long time and much experimentation.

I gave up on my old saw (dust collection) and a couple times a week I’d stop and open the door and use my grizzly dc to clean it out.

Hey Dick, that’s one sweet saw!! I guess this means you’ll be stepping up the bowl production now.
Enjoy and thank you for your service.

I’ve owned and use the Incra table saw fence TS-III system its older than the one you have. I’ve owned it for close to 20 years now. I used it on an old Craftsman 10” saw and when I purchased my Unisaw, it got moved over to the new delta. I would never be without a Incra fence system. It is so accurate and repeatable, I just love using this fence. I also purchase the Incra 2000 miter gauge with shop stop when I bought the fence system.

I like your taste on saws and fence, very nice setup. You want wear out that setup.
