Guys, I thought I remember someone posting these for sale but can’t seem to find it?
Next idiot

I have an older (1965) Unisaw, single phase 1.5hp running 115v that I bought last week. When I ran it before purchase it ran fine and cut a test as well as it could with the super dull blade, and the only smoke I noticed was from the cedar the dull blade burned through making the cross cut. I used it yesterday and it started fine, and ran fine, but I got about 3” into a rip cut and smoke started coming out from below the table top. The motor and blade didn’t seem effected by the cut, didn’t slow down or turn off or anything. I stopped the cut, turned off the motor, and took out the throat plate but could not see where the smoke was coming from. It didn’t smell like that ozone smell from a burnt motor. It didn’t have a rubber smell so I don’t think it was the belts. I just don’t know enough about the interworking’s to make even an estimated guess as to where to start. Does anyone know what that could be? Could the bushings burn, or could something underneath start some sawdust smoldering? There is no smoke unless the blade is cutting something.
Any help would be appreciated… any yes, I do realize I will see some jokes based on the title of this thread :)
Thanks guys!
heres another one,

I have a dado set I bought when I got my new table saw last year – I’ve yet to use them :(

I also bought 2 new saw blades when I bought the table saw – I’ve yet to install! 10” 50T, 10” 80T.

It’s been a year that I have my saw, and currently I still have the original blade – 10” 40 T.

It seems to cut fine for my needs, then again I don’t really know my needs LOL


The dado, looks like a real PITA to work with, I’ve read how to do it, but haven’t gotten the nerve up to try it yet. Also, I always ruin a lot of wood when I try something new :( and I’m not in the mood to lose wood at the moment.

The new blades are not top of the line, I really don’t think I’m ready for top of the line stuff anyway.

So my questions:

Do you change blades often or based on the project or cutting type/wood you’re doing/using.

Can blades be sharpened – is it even worth it if they can be? Who/what would do the sharpening?

Thanks as always in advance

Put a new blade in.
If it still smokes with the new blade, there’s trouble, though I would not know what. The idea is to narrow it down till you find the issue. Take the belt off and run the motor w/o any load. Inspect the belts for signs of slippage. Slipping belts may not necessary smell like a burnout in the street. Cut different types of wood. Get out the flashlight and look for anything that might be rubbing against any moving parts. A kid may have shoved a toy in there before you got the machine. Take away whatever it is smoking and tell it, “That’s it! No more smokes for you!”.

Search your area for blade sharpening services and get quotes. Then decide for yourself whether it is worth it.
