This thread will document assembly, setup, and mods to my new Unisaw, model 36-L336.
deck cleared for action.
Cardboard box removed, saw still anchored to pallet.
Bare Unisaw sitting in mobile base. In the background you
can see some of the boxes containing the rest of the saw.
The fence rails, fence, table board, and drawer come in separate
boxes. Five boxes in all complete the shipment.
So how did I get the 550 pounds of saw off the pallet and into
the mobile base by myself without a trip to the hospital?
Do you know?
Just finished watching the included DVD which goes over the complete
assembly of the Unisaw. It is about 26 minutes long and takes you
through the whole process from lifting the saw off the pallet (oops, I
jumped the gun and have this part done already ), to adjusting the
bevel dial indicator and the bevel travel stops. In a manner similar to the
TS-3650, the 0 and 45 bevel stops can be adjusted from the front of the
cabinet, the TS-3650 adjustments are done from up top using two set
screws accessed through the table top, a nice and easy way. The Unisaw
is just about as easy, you adjust them using two adjustments nuts on the
front of the saw, no need to crawl inside.
The DVD also includes about a dozen short videos with Scott Phillips showing
off the various features of the saw. You may have seen these on the web on
YouTube or other sites. Another section of the DVD has a copy of the Power
Tool Safety Institutes' table saw safety video.
