« Part 5: Re-Assembly Complete with New Bearings / Belts Part 6 of My 1997 Delta Unisaw 36-815 Refurbishing series no next part

Just about done with the tear down and re-assembly of this Unisaw. After last blog entry and before this one, I had to ask advice about belts & such. You can read it here in the forums:

What a great adventure this is. Rails & fence mostly assembled. Cast iron top miter slots have been aligned with the saw blade. But now comes the next phases: mobile platform and consideration of slapping my Bosch 4100 into the right wing extension and ongoing modifications & accessories, for which I’ll keep this blog ongoing.

A real beaut!

Don’t forget to consider the swing that access door requires to open if you are planning to install that 4100.
That probably is the #1 reason I wish I had waited for a left tilt.
The dual saw setup can be a very handy feature!

Have your say...
