Wanted to give a detailed breakdown of the weight of a 1960’s era Delta Unisaw

Total weight ~320 pounds (145kg)

  • Top – 60 lbs (27kg)
  • Extension Wings 2 @ 22lbs ea = 44 lbs (20kg)
  • Cabinet with basic components (motor mount, etc) 120 pounds (54kg)
  • Motor 60 pounds (27kg)
  • Cast Iron Base 30 lbs (14kg)

These will easily fit in the back of a small suv. 4 bolts should allow you to remove the top with the extension wings; saving ~100 lbs (45kg); optional if you want to remove the motor.

Below is my project/potentially part out unisaw. Paid $100 for it which included an old morgan vice. The vice broken and was re-welded, so time will tell if that was done correctly.

Not sure what the plan is at the moment; The saw came with the normal cast iron top and what looks like a top from their shaper; I figure at $0.33 per pound and a bench vice to sweeten the deal it was worth getting.
