In my last post I walked through prepping and painting the table.
I have finally gotten the whole table put together. I was able to find a great belt that works and I tested the saw last night. It all works!! I am going to try and make a plate cover and sled this weekend. I hope it comes out OK.
Here are my finished product pictures:
I feel like this turned out AWESOME! I really enjoyed working on this table and look forward to building some incredible furniture and wood projects with it. Although- It was a huge frustration and disappointment to me at how hard it is to get OEM or direct parts for this saw. Most of the important parts I am missing are no longer produced or in stock. This included the plate for the saw hole and the blade guard. Additionally I found that Delta has a 2 week backlog on just shipping a part. I eventually found some of the parts I needed at Sears Parts Online. I ordered a belt and it should be here in a day or so. This was not an expensive project and lots of fun. I believe I have a very solid table that looks great. If anyone knows what a table like this is worth or has any feedback on parts or general ideas- PLEASE post on the comments below.
Obligatory Picture of Me
Taking Life Apart- What Does That Mean?I have decided to talk more about what I want and not just what I do at work. I have had a fascination since I was a child with understanding how things work. I would and still do- dismantle things to see how they work. I believe I have begun to do this with my life experience in my writing. So- here is my attempt at explaining the world I have been tearing apart in order to live my life.
