Sometimes being the “Back-up” pays dividends. Of the Popular Woodworking staff, I’m the back-up video guy. When it’s necessary, I’m called into action.
This past week publisher Steve Shanesy called me to action. Steve picked up an old Delta Unisaw at auction. (You can read an early blog entry about his find and what the saw was used for during the last 50-plus years if you click here.) He plans to refurbish the machine and as he does, I get a good look inside, outside and upside down of the saw and the restoration process.
Along the way, Steve plans to document the work in a series of short videos that explain just what has to be done to bring this bad boy back to life. In the first installment, he does a general assessment of the machine, takes a look at the saw’s top, the fence and the motor; it’s a big honking motor! And the wear found on the wiring will make you run to the shop to check your wires. You have to see it.
