As some of you know I have been restoring/modifying and updating a 1987 Delta Unisaw.
If you are interested I have blog here:

Last weekend I finished the project, here are some pics;

I have spent a total of around $1200.00.

Wow, very nice b2rtch. I’m curious where did you get that little “scissor jack” if that’s what it is called? I could use one of those. The saw does look great though. Great job.

Man youd have to peel me away from that set up … Bert you did a great job and youll have a saw station for life with enough power to cut anything youd like.

Fantastic job, I’ve been following (and empathizing with) your threads regarding finding the right saw…glad to see it worked out so well for you. I’ll come to these pictures when despairing at the time it is taking me to find the right saw…looks like it works out in the end with a little patience and hard work! Hope you have fun with your new setup!

Nice going! You put my Unisaw to shame.

Followed you all along the way and glad you got it done, and so well too.

The saw was in excellent condition when I bought it.
Even it is 25 years old, it looks like it has been very little used.

Thank you all.
