    Bought a new rip fence Well, I gave in and bought the Delta T2 fence for my restored 1952 Craftsman 10" tilt arbor table saw. I still have the original fence, but the rail was aluminum and not built very well. I am sure that it worked fine in the day, but this one was a sight for sore eyes...

    Delta Shopmaster Bandsaw - SM400 - A Budget Bandsaw So I finally made an excuse to buy a new tool - a bandsaw to be precise. The problem is that I can not foresee a need for a heavy-duty model, nor can I justify its expense at this time. For that money, I could simply ask my wood supplier to...

    Test Drive The first installment of this blog is here due to LJ blogging technical issues… To make sure the dimensions are correct for our new table, we decided to do a little test drive. It didn't hurt that we're having eight people over for a Fourth of July BBQ. We ran over to the big box...

    Installing my new Delta T2-30 on a Craftsman flexdrive. It all started with dissatisfaction with my Craftsman Flexdrive table saw. It was difficult to make a decent cut with the saw. I understood part of the problem could have been lack of experience on how to use the tool, but it wasn't...

    Jewel found at an auction! I just had to gloat a little tonight. I decided to leave work early and go to a local auction today. The ad stated there would be some woodworking equipment there. Never one to turn down the chance to get something else for the garage/shop I decided to drive the...

    Table Saw If you had read The Great Table Saw Debate Continues then you know I just recently purchased an old Craftsman Emerson saw. This was a major step in my home shop. The old saw literraly crapped out on me in a major way. (Could have killed me if I wasn't careful.) Well, after a...

    Entering the Design Phase I just finished "Workbenches" by Chris Schwarz. I really enjoyed the book and it gave me a boost of motivation to get started on my workbench project. I enjoyed his writing style, his humor, as well as the little bit of history that was sprinkled in. I saw the quote...

    Recently it has become impossible to raise or lower the depth on this planer, making it unusable. I could crank it down, but not up. It is now down all the way and I can't crank it up. I have cleaned out all of the dust and tried to see if there is anything that might keep it from raising. I...

    The Day I got it I have already posted in forums on this topic but I had a suggestion that this may be a good idea to update my restoration status as I go. So I found this Rockwell/Delta 37-220 6" Jointer on CL the other day, asking $150, I drove 40 miles to look at it. Talked him down to $100...

    Recovering from Hurricane Ike in 2008 Before September of 2008, I had a garage at my place in San Leon, TX. It was far from optimal - humid, hot, no A/C, and the tools rusted despite my efforts. Working out there was not much fun, anyway. I defy anyone to say they like working in a shop when...

    Doing the plan in Sketchup Spent several hours yesterday putting together a drawing in Sketchup (SKU) for the under the wing storage cabinet for my Delta Contractor table saw. I have a Biesemeyer fence on the saw with the 30" extension so I have a large space underneath the right wing. The...

    The Beginning 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...

    The deal of a lifetime... my first Unisaw (maybe my one and only!) Fellow Lumberjocks, I submit to you the story of my Unisaw (so far…). On June 26th, a Unisaw popped up on Craigs List with a price of $300 - I hesitantly clicked expecting one of two things to happen. Either the posting would...

    Should I Buy? I found a 1940's Delta Unisaw on ebay for 175 bucks. It is rusted and has a big motor in it. He says it is single phase with 1750 as the rpm. The cast iron on the top is rusted, but could be removed with chemicals, a grinder, or electroalisis. This one has the rare oval motor...
