Unisaw 34-450 for $300

05-27-2011 01:39 AM by cranesgonewild | 19 comments »

Yup, you read that correctly.I’ve been on a search for a while now trying to find a half decent table or cabinet saw. I’ve jumped back and forth from used on Kijiji to a new Ridgid 4512, back to used, then I was going to buy a new Grizzly G0690, right up until Monday. That’s when I got the call. My brother in law sent me a link Monday morning to a Rockwell/Delta Unisaw 34-450 on Kijiji that was posted late the night before. It was a really nice looking saw with no damage ...

These are the pictures after I completely took this saw apart, lubed it, removed the majority of the rust, repainted, and reassembled. All i have to do now is to finish hooking up the switch and this saw will be ready for a top.

Shop Tools #1: Would you have passed it up?

05-20-2007 01:04 AM by WayneC | 16 comments »

My son wanted to get up this morning and go to some garage sales. I’ve been gone all week working and thought it would be a good idea to spend some time with him and his sister today. We happened across this drill press at a garage sale and I tried, but failed to pass it up. I have a fairly new Rigid Drill press with a Rockler drill press table and it works great for me. I thought long and hard about buying or not buying it. My biggest issue is space. This one has some addition...

From Rust to Lust, can I bring it back? #11: These bearings cost HOW MUCH?!

05-09-2012 05:22 PM by GlennsGrandson | 12 comments »

I took the bearings in to a local auto store to check on replaceing them (Bearing #:8502-k and 8503-k). They want $48 a piece for them! Wowzas. I found them online after S&H for about $63 total. I tihnk I’ll do that. But then I am getting antsy and the company told me they are a special order part so it’d probably be 3 weeks before they even ship! So my dilema is that I want to cut now, but don’t want to spend $100. So I was talking to my dad and he suggested if they wer...

Rockwell/Delta Homecraft 10" Bandsaw Restoration #1: The Beginning

03-27-2012 12:00 PM by Tyrone D | 12 comments »

Hello,I found the best find ever in my life. I found a Delta Homecraft 10” Bandsaw in an alleyway cast away near a “free” sign. I thought to myself, “That bandsaw deserves better and I took it home.There she is in her miskept beauty. On of the things that really pecks my brain is the stand. It says, “Property of CC Wakefield & Co. Ltd.” on it. Charles Cheers Wakefield is the founder of C.C.Wakefield & Co(Now known as Castrol). What’s weird is ...

Tool Refurb #1: Delta/Rockwell Unisaw

03-17-2012 02:16 AM by Joekwon80 | 10 comments »

I’ve been searching craigslist for that perfect table saw for a month now it seems and lo and behold the table saw that is perfect for me popped up and I was lucky enough to grab it. I paid all of 200 dollars for a 10” Delta/Rockwell 1.5 HP unisaw in working condition. I was walking through the Nelson Atkin’s Museum in Kansas City, MO in fact when I came across it and I immediately started making calls to make sure I could secure it. Being on tour at the moment my buddy J...

Estate Sale Finds #3: - Delta Milwaukee 6" Jointer

04-24-2015 10:11 PM by Jeff | 9 comments »

Super excited about the deal I got today! So what did I find this morning as I went to a few Estate sales? An awesome 6” Delta Rockwell Jointer with a 3/4 hp motor. I have been wanting a jointer, but did not have the funds to go out and buy something new. I didn’t want a desktop jointer, reviews seems mixed, and I do not have room for a larger floor model. This is the perfect size for what I am doing right now. I know it does not look that great, but I really like these old ...

06-28-2016 04:03 AM by MikesProjects | 8 comments »

Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...

Looking for Rockwell Bandsaw Manual

09-12-2012 09:16 AM by Rogstad | 6 comments »

I recently was given an old bandsaw from a friend of a friend (awesome!). It didn’t come with an owner’s manual. Does anyone know where to find a manual for a Rockwell Bandsaw Model 25-20C. Would love to know more how to tune it up and see a parts diagram, etc. Thanks!

Drill Press Cabinet #4: Restoring my 1950's Rockwell Drill Press

06-22-2018 12:48 AM by hjt | 6 comments »

This is one of the many tools I have in my modest little shop that came from my dad’s work shop. Apparently, my dad was not too particular about this piece as there is paint splatter all over it. And the rust is rather heavy in spots from now being in Florida. My focus here is to disassemble and clean up the rust, repaint, and put a better switch in place. Here are some before photos. As you can see – lots of rust and paint splattering At some time the c...
