I got an angle on a vintage Delta Unisaw yesterday afternoon.
Called the guy about 5 minutes after the CL posting. He said it was his dads and it stopped working for him late in '09. It had been outside under a tarp since then. Rushed out to his place to buy/ checked it out. No visible cracks and most parts accounted for.
Honestly there wasn't much to do, because after my call the guy got 6 other calls in 30 minutes and one fella offered him double the asking price. I pretty much was like. "Yep it's a Uni. Here's your dough."
I gave him his 50 bucks he was asking and then he and I plus his two kids and his wife hoisted it up into my pickup. It was a riot!
Rope was just for show. This thing wasn't going anywhere!
A wee bit rusty
With sawdust from 1952, or there abouts, included!
I've never worked with a tool this heavy, I was flabbergasted! Unisaw extraction team. FIL, BIL, Me!
I plan on a full restore. I'm in no rush to get it done. Luckily lots have come before me and I've found tons of guides and how to's. I'll keep you posted
