Delta Unisaw #3: Not so lucky with the age of the saw

02-01-2008 12:56 AM by Kevin | 2 comments »

I have been suspecting that the guy I bought my saw from did not really know how old it was. The saw was his father-in-laws and he got it when his father-in-law passed away. He said that he knows the dust collector was bought less than two years ago and he thought the saw was bought at the same time. If so, then it wasn’t bought new. I was afraid the saw was older because of the condition of the table top & fence and the fact that the motor cover was metal and not plastic. Once I...

Which Tool Would You Buy???

01-30-2008 09:25 AM by Brad | 10 comments »

My birthday is coming up and I’ve told everyone nothing but money because I want to get some new tools. I’m guessing all in all I’ll have around $500 to spend. I’m considering a band saw, 13” planer, biscuit jointer or a new router/plunge router combo. So what do you guys think??? Which is going to give me the best advance in shop versatility?

Delta Unisaw #1: Cleaned up and trying to decide if I should keep it.

01-27-2008 07:27 AM by Kevin | 15 comments »

I have decided to put all of this into a blog instead of the forums. Here is a link to the previous forums. Should I buy this Unisaw? Unisaw Advice Needed? Well, I finally got pictures of it. I wish I had pictures from before working on it. I have spent a lot of time trying to clean up the cast iron top. I tried to get pictures that show what it looks like, but it is hard to capture. I picked up a new tape for the ...

Wood Scrap Box #2: Measure twice, cut once

01-24-2008 12:44 AM by CutNRun | 7 comments »

I actually measured very carefully three times; the bottom of the dado would be precisely 3 15/16” from the end of the board. I carefully routed all four dadoes, stopping at the right spot. Then I looked as the spacing, relative to the other grooves. What happened? I measured from the end of the board – exactly 3 15/16”. I looked again at my full scale plans and the measurements I had calculated – 3 5/16”! Dooh! Exact comments are deleted to maintain a fam...

Day 2

01-23-2008 06:06 AM by John | 4 comments »

Spent most of yesterday trying to get it sorted out. It’s closer than it was but not quite right. Here’s what your contractor saw looks like on the inside. Underside of a contractor saw. Cast iron top propped up between my router table and the contractor saw stand. View from the front. Just to the lower left of the bolt hole is the area I had to grind to get enough side to side adjustment from the trunnion. This is the blade tilt adjustment shaft. This is the front ...

Mission Inspired Couch Table #1: Starting my first 'big' project...

01-22-2008 07:09 PM by itsme_timd | 6 comments »

I love Mission style furniture and am working on my first piece, a couch table that will be used as an aquarium stand. I’m trying to take my time with this one, it gets worked on a little at a time in between some of my smaller projects. The table is red oak from HD. I don’t have a planer yet so I needed to buy lumber that was close to size and fairly finished. I want to try somethung in quarter sawn white oak next. I just finished one side of the table and wanted to post...

Fun with my Tablesaw yesterday

01-21-2008 06:51 PM by John | 6 comments »

Hello all. I went out into the shop yesterday to build a miter saw cabinet to get the saw off the floor. I said to myself “Why don’t you check the miter slot to blade parallelism It’s been a while”. It was out by a 1/16! So I get the socket wrench and a dead blow to tap it back in and I don’t have enough adjustment in the trunnion to get it parallel. Lots of head scratching followed by lots of disassembly resulted in the saw top upside down on the base. I cleaned...

Delta T2 Fence #6: How to setup and install on a Craftsman tablesaw

01-19-2008 07:58 AM by Jamie | 14 comments »

Since I have installed the Delta T2 fence on my Craftsman tablesaw, I have had a few people asking how I installed it, especially, how I installed the fence so that it would zero properly. For those that are thinking about installing this fence on a craftsman, you WILL have to drill new holes in the rails. You can use one of the existing holes, but you will not be able to ‘0’ the fence. I wish that I had taken pictures of each step to further clarify the information listed be...

Wood Scrap Box #1: Parts and Pieces

01-17-2008 09:19 PM by CutNRun | 4 comments »

Two days before Christmas, my wife casually mentions that she would like a jewelry box. Hmmm, don’t think the timing was very good. Having completed the 2×4 project, I decided to try to put together a jewelry box from the small pieces of wood laying around in my shop. I had a decent amount of 1/2” cherry, some figured maple, some oak, and a small amount of paduk. After spending a few days laying out a design and seeing if I had enough wood, I started cutting and gluing.Th...

Tool cabinet #7: Top mounted tool chest

01-17-2008 08:54 PM by CutNRun | 10 comments »

While it isn’t quite done, I’m about 80% complete with the companion chest to my tool cabinet. The carcase is completed and together, the back panel is done and ready to mount, and the drawers are all cut and dry assembled. I need to finish sand the drawers and glue them togther. Some coats of finish and drawer liners and it will be ready for tools. Should add some bonus shallow drawers to what I have already. The drawer fronts of the chest are figured maple to match the top d...
