I have purchased a Delta Unisaw circa 1940 that I am looking to refurbish. Of course the motor cover is absent. I have seen several options and am looking to get some input from fellow LJ’s prior to purchase.
The options are in increasing price:
1) Plastic cover from ebay $89.00 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rockwell-Delta-Unisaw-Table-Saw-Motor-Cover-Oval-NEW-Made-USA-/320885424673?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ab6430221
2) Fiberglass cover Cannot find the link but about $130.
3) cast Iron cover. http://stores.renovoparts.com/-strse-11/1454-Unisaw-Cast-Iron/Detail.bok Nice in terms of keeping with the original design of the machine however is it worth spending the extra $$
What to do. Any opinions? Much appreciated.
