It’s not every day that you remove the tabletop from your table saw and get a close-up view on the interior workings, so you’ll want to watch this second session of the Delta Unisaw rebuild even if you never plan to rebuild a table saw.
This week Steve Shanesy takes a close look inside the saw. He steps through the individual parts including the trunnions, bearings and the arbor assembly and demonstrates how to clean your ways without a greasy mess. He also shows you how to remove the old bearings, then install new ones using simple tools. And if you’re rebuilding a saw , or if you think you might someday , Steve has a couple tricks to make the job easier.
