Ok, so the time has come to me starting to get serious about getting the Unisaw that I bought last year up an running. I am looking for some parts that were missing (blade guard, dust door and motor cover) but since I only paid $150. for a running saw, I can overlook the missing pieces.

On to my question, I called Delta to find out the year saw I have. They couldn’t find it. I went to Vintagemachinery.com and from what I found there was kind of vague. Serial number is 15-6755. From what I have found, it was built in 41. Anyone have any suggestions?

You have choices.
One, you can develop all the dimensions and go to a Sheet metal shop and get them to make the two pieces.
Two, you can make them out of 1/4” plywood and use piano hinges.
Blade guard – You may not find a Delta one, but there are several after market blade guards.

Once you clean it up, check the bearings, install new belts, check the wiring, you will have a real solid table saw.

Have your say...
