Topic tags/keywords: unifence cursor

I just put together a unifence that I purchased and I found that I do not have the cursor for the fence body. Does anyone know where I can find one of these? Thank you.

I bought two of them a few years ago, but I cannot remember from whom, nor can I find the email confirmation. Ereplacement parts shows them for sale, but out of stock

Last time I Klutz’d my cursor 6 months ago, cheapest place to get one was Amazon:
www.amazon.com/gp/product/B010LYIVX2
Cost me ~$18 with free shipping. But they are out of stock right now.
Used to be able to find them on fleabay for $25, but don’t see any for sale there either?

Hmm, better be more careful till they get back in stock…..

Why do you need this?

Resurrecting an old thread to add some data and make a request for help.

Seems EVERYONE is out of stock on the old style Unifence cursor PN 400063750001, which has mounting screws on side of cursor:

Not Amazon, EBay, Renovo, eReplacementparts, nor ANY of the Delta parts sellers have these for sale right now. :-(0

Recently bought another old style Unifence and need to find a cursor, and maybe a spare?

Found these 3D printable replacements on thing universe:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1928899
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4241889

Anyone with 3D printer that can make one for me? Contact me via PM if interested.

For sake of being complete:

The ‘new’ style Unifence has the screw mounting holes on top, and uses PN 400-06-375-0002 or PN 422-27-075-0006 cursor that looks like this:

Hope this helps others.
Cheers!

Help!!

I just bought an older Delta Contractors Saw with a Unifence in pretty good shape for a nice price. The Unifence had the original cursor but because of my own stupidity I managed to break it in the move #@&%.

Of course they are no longer available but I did find 3D printing plans for a cool replacement. The black base has a place to mount your own plexiglass with cursor lines and looks very professional. Here’s the link:

I don’t have a 3D printer though. Does anyone know where I could have a few of these made for a reasonable price? Or even better someone that has these for sale?

Thanks for your help!

FWIW
Until recently there was a person regularly selling one of the cursor designs from thinguniverse.com posted above. No active listings at moment. Completed listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/184789754241
Maybe can contact them and asked about that new version?

Can also check your local Craigslist for folks offering 3D printing services.
We have several that advertise often in Phoenix.

Cheers

Thank you Captain! I’m checking with local 3D Printers to see if they can do a small run for a decent price.

If school was in session you could try one of them. When taught before I retired I had a 3D printer in my classroom. The Vocational school where I substitute for drafting had 7 3D printers that I would run parts when I was there for fun.
Around here the library has a 3D printer that you can use to make things. So check your local library.

Back in Feb. (this year) Jeanne Perry at Tools Plus posted on another forum that she had just found 3 NOS Unifence cursors, Thye were selling them for $10 + postage. Probably all gone, but you could check with them.

Just google 3D printing services. You will probably find some nearby.

My new cursors arrived!
Thank you everybody for the advise and suggestions on getting this done.

I downloaded the 3D printing file for these from Thingiverse. The files are free to download as long as it’s for your own use and not to sell.

I found a 3D print service online and he printed me 10 pieces of the black frames for only $12 postage included!

Next I needed the clear plastic window with the two cursor lines. I went to TAP Plastics and they cut me 10 pieces of 1/16” polycarbonate. Total cost was $20 with the glue I needed to attach them to the frame.

Now all I need to do is scribe the hairlines and fill them with red paint. Viola! 10 cursors for $32.

I’ll post some pics. Two are from the Thingiverse website (the link is in my previous post). The final pic is of the black frames and clear windows. Note the clear plastic windows have a white protective film on them.
