I’ve got two unisaws and need to sell one of them. This one is a 1948 based on the serial #. Excellent condition and includes all original parts except it’s missing the motor cover. The top is off as you can see in the pictures because i just replaced the arbor bearings last week. Trunions are perfect with no breaks or cracks in the ears or stops. I measured run-out on the flange before replacing the bearings and it was less than .002 (haven’t checked it since replacing them but it should still be good. Has a single phase 1hp bullet motor. Brushes were replaced in the last few years but it could stand to have new bearings, they sound pretty dry. It runs like a champ though and is really powerful for a 1hp. I’ve got it set up for 220v right now and can demonstrate it. I’ll throw in the overhead “uniguard” that came with my other fence. don’t have any pictures of it but it’s been repaired and works fine. Let me know if you want any other pictures or have questions.

Asking $650 obo for this one.

Wow, that brings back memories…I had a 1947 Unisasw that I bought used around 1973 for $150. Had it until it was destroyed in 2005 during the flood of Hurricane Katrina.
I also would buy it if you were not so far away.

Have your say...
