Help finish will not dry - 10 replies

Hey guysI built a stand for a few benchtop tools using a solid birch door and some Doug fir lumber that were left over on a project. Both of these woods are prone to blotch and I ran out of pre conditioner. I read that I can thin down bullseye shellac with denatured alcohol down to a1lb cut and use that as a sealer to control blotchiness. I mixe...

My harbor freight workbench furniture grade upgrade. Almost too nice - 11 replies

I had to fix one handle due to rushing from the excitement of finishing but it’s all fixed up. The bench finally has heft to it and doesn’t wobble all over the place when using the vise. Total spent was about $175 but only because I have loads of walnut. Top is basically the same other than I lined the bottom with 3/4” walnut t...

Incra ts-ls fence - 11 replies

Hey guysI just purchased and installed the Incra ts-ls saw fence and I have a small issue. After squaring it up to the miter slot I used my woodpecker set up dial and it seems like I’m off 5 thousandths in the center.

Delta unisaw rebuild hit snafoo - 35 replies

Hello gentsI have been rebuilding an 87 unisaw for the last couple of weeks and am down to the wire. I went to square off my blade and I just cannot the blade 90 degrees. I spin the wheel as far as it goes until it bottoms out and it seems if I could just spin it a 1/4 turn more the blade would be in position. The blade is dead flat and I pulled...

Hvlp harbor freight cup liners - 23 replies

I feel like a complete dummy for asking but I purchased the cup liners and was wondering if I’m supposed to cut a hole in the liner or cut the whole bottom out or what to do. Also does anyone know what the hardest clearcoat finish is? I am restoring a delta unisaw and want to make it scratch resistant. Thanks guys.

Outfeed table saw removal - 9 replies

Hey guysI started rebuilding my delta unisaw and have finally made it to the outfeed table. I completely sanded it and should be ready for paint tomorrow but I have clue on how to remove the rollers. I’m sure I can paint it while they are on but it would make a world of difference if they were off. I would have mounted one side in and the ...

Delta Unisaw I found on CL - 15 replies

I purchased a 34-801 unisaw today from 1987 for $300 it included a custom locking dolly with a diamond plate which the saw is bolted to and a steel outfeed table with rollers in great shape. It needs about an hour worth of work to get the top clean but other than that the top is dead flat and the motor was super super quiet. You can tell it̵...
