End Joinery with Pre-Finished Apple Ply - Seeking Ideas - 3 replies

So for the wardrobe closet, when I purchased all the wood, I was led down a path that compelled me to purchase pre-finished apple ply drawer sides that include a pre-finished crown: At the time, it seemed like a great idea. But now I’m faced with joining four sides to make the box, and it appears I have two wee problems with my orig...

The Wardrobe Closet - how do I "fix" this. - 37 replies

With machine restoration (temporarily) behind me, I’ve turned my attention to THE wardrobe closet. To be honest, probably far more chosen to chew than I was ready to bite. But now here I am and forward I must go. My intention with this post is to only ask two questions – I’ll try to save the epic journey for the more appropriat...

Please Help a Blithering Idiot Find the Correct Arbor Nut - 21 replies

This is my “new” Unisaw: This is the arbor inside the saw: I purchased an arbor nut for a right tilt saw. When I tried to thread it onto the arbor this evening, it was no go; the thread is clearly the opposite pitch to what I need. So my questions: 1. Do I indeed have a right tilt saw? 2.

Biesemeyer or Incra Fence? - 43 replies

I’m in the final stages of restoring my “newly” acquired 1967 Delta Unisaw. Now I need to address some of the accessories, one of which is the fence.

Rebuilding a Vintage Delta Unisaw - Things You Should Know But are Hard to Research - 94 replies

Hello Fellow Lumberjocks, I’m still a newbie here – I only have a couple of threads under my belt. But I’ve come across a rather unexpected hurdle in rebuilding my recently acquired 1967 Delta Unisaw (Model 34-450). I had been documenting my progress in one of my (two) previous threads titled “Buy a Cheap Saw, Get a Ch...

Buy a Cheap Saw, Get a Cheap Saw - 48 replies

The old adage “you get what you pay for” couldn’t be more true. I spent nearly one week attempting to generate “straight” cuts with my Dewalt 7491 Table Saw. Last night I decided to investigate and realized the problem: The problem is how the miter angle is set. That little black bar that the arrow is pointin...

Greetings and Salutations - 9 replies

I’ve been peeking through the window many times as I passed by and thought it might be nice to step inside the door and meet some of the patrons of this establishment. Please allow me to introduce myself as I step inside the door. My name is David – if you forget, just see my username. I pose as a scientist by day and do my best t...
