    Here’s my 70’s vintage Unisaw before and after. I just finished the shop made dust cover and motor cover today. Restoration required a complete teardown and cleanup. When I brought it home the blade elevation was seized tight.

    That is a solid saw with lots of power. Great work on the restoration.

    That is a nice saw Peter. I bet that one doesn’t get moved around the shop much?

    Thanks, Frank, I have seen them on a mobile base but I can’t imagine moving one around a shop at all.

    Old iron is cool. Nice job. I keep thinking of a table saw upgrade and keep changing my mind between something old and something brand new. As long as I can’t afford it I suppose I can keep changing my mine. All I know is it will be a cabinet saw when I jump.

    I just tried something I have always wanted to do. This will demonstrate how stable and solid the old cabinet saws really are.

    Nice a smooth. Not even the slightest movement with the coin.

    Hmmm, very cool. I have seen it done with American nickels, so pretty close to the same value in currency with that toonie.

    Wow that’s a great demo of how smooth that saw is. I can’t believe it. Did you glue the coin down??

    The idea for the demo isn’t mine, but I had to try it. I was skeptical but, no, the coin isn’t glued down.

    That is impressive. That 500lb helps to keep that thing stable. The motor must run real smooth too.

    @smallerstick
    – nice saw, great video. Do you have any on-line resources to suggest for a Unisaw rebuild?

    Here are some of the references I used ..

    http://vintagemachinery.org/ This is a site most of us are aware of and holds some very valuable information.

    This thread is long but very well detailed and well worth the read..

    This is a good tutorial for shimming the top …

    This is a complete rebuild video series but, I feel it leaves out some important steps

    The old saws were really made well. I didn’t see any plastic there!

    good job on refrubishing the saw, good for another 40 years of use. I wanted to buy an old saw before I bought the king and was talked out of it, someday I will trade it in.

    The old tools were really overbuilt to last. Not as many features as the new ones have, but they really did the work.

    the only thing i want more of on the old machines is retrofitting guards and riving knives and stuff like that on it. just to make it less of a arm eater or knuckle demolisher.
