Topic tags/keywords: handwheel delta unisaw 34-802

One of my handwheels got damaged (broke in pieces) transporting my Delta unisaw to my new workshed.
I am looking now for couple of months to find a replacement, but cannot find it.
It is the cast aluminium handwheel with the delta shape in the middle.
If anyone has one for sale, or knows where i can find one i would be very happy.

Regards fromb a happy Delta unisaw user from the Netherlands.

Picture of the remaining one:

Something like this?

In reality I don’t think the “Delta” is that important. I would make sure of the center hole size, and call Grizzly to see how much. Probably S&H will be your devil.

ID of the bore and the wheel dia is what matters. Should be pretty standard.

Looks like you’re missing the locking knob as well.

Thanks for your replies,
I would like to have the delta shape to keep it original. (the saw is kind of retauration project)
A different shaped handwheel i can find also in the Netherlands.
For the s&h i have until end october a solution as a collegue is on a training trip to San Diago and is willing to take items with him on his way back.
The locking knobs are still there, i took it of to get a clear picture of the handwheel.
Measurement of the middle hole 19mm =0,74inch? (Not sure if i translate thia right)

Diameter of the handwheel is 7.5 in.

I don’t think that is the proper handwheel for your Unisaw. AFAIK, the Unisaw never had cast aluminum handwheels – they were made of steel. They also did not have the triangle middle section like the ones you have, which I believe I remember seeing on one of their contractor type saws. Did you purchase this saw new or know of it’s history? If you look up the parts diagram for your machine (like this one at ereplacementparts.com), you will see what the standard handwheel looks like. If you really want to keep the ones you have, then your best bet would probably trying to find one on e-bay. Otherwise, It would probably be easier to just swap both of them out with the correct handles, which can be found quite easily all over the place.

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks Brad,

But..If you look at the type one, (that is the one i have, looking at the stand with dust door)
There are delta shaped handwheels.

Interesting… I guess that was one of the cost-cutting measures taken on some of the newer machines. The good news is that any handwheel from a Unisaw should fit, regardless of year, so you have a wide range of choices. I did find one like yours over at the OWWM site in the BOYD section for $45 delivered, but it’s been out there for a while so I’m not sure if it’s still available:
(http://www.owwm.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=168599&p=1147278)

You need to be a member to access the BOYD section and send messages, so I went ahead and send a query to him to see if it was still available. Hopefully will have an answer soon on that one.

There are also a few pairs of the more standard steel ones for about the same price or just slightly higher since there are two instead of just one.

Cheers,
Brad

Thanks Brad!
Hope it is still available, i have to say i like the delta shape, it fits a delta machine. (Even if it is done for cost reducing)
I keep on looking on ebay, and other places.

Luc

Would this work? I didn’t check any specifics but it does list the TS it is compatible with and is a Delta brand.

Handwheels are expensive and especially with shipping. By the picture, it looks like it would be easy to repair the broken one. Just have a plate made up, 1/4” thick x 7.5” diameter and have a boss welded to the plate, bored out to 19mm and attached to the back of the broken handwheel with screws. You could cut the plate into a 3 arm shape to mimic the original.

You could cut the plate into a 3 arm shape to mimic the original. Since this is a Delta, I’m sure the bore is 3/4”, not 19mm. 19mm is .748”; 3/4” is .750”. Reading your caliper, I can see a reading of .751” and that would be the correct size for a 3/4” (.750) bore.

MrRon,

Thanks for your info on the measurements, i always hassle with the conversion to inch.
I sometimes use a app on my phone, but this gives me .748 but i dont know the 3/4, 5/16, have to read on that a bit.
For now i repaired the handwheel by bolting a strip of metal with a handle to the adapter, works fine.
But still i like it to be replaced with a new (used)one.
I like to keep my tools in good shape.

Luc,
Just multiply inches by 25.4 and that is your metric equivalent !

For metric to inches devide by 25.4 and that is your inches equivalent !

Good luck and happy Woodworking
