Restored 1939 Delta 'Four Footer' Unisaw (FFU), Model 1450. This Unisaw model is known to be the first Unisaw model begun to be manufactured from October, 1938. I found this FFU in the Facebook Marketplace of Allison, PA. The previous owner told me that he got this FFU from an auction, where nobody was interested in this rusty one and so he was able to buy very cheap. Since this FFU model is the first Unisaw model, I really wanted to have and restore. I drove over to Allison, PA. It was a long drive from Knoxville, TN to Allison, PA (8.5 hours one way). After such a long drive, seeing this FFU made me very happy since she had almost all of the original parts and accessories such as iron cast motor cover, dust door, jet lock fence, Uniguard, labels and etc. The motor mounted, however, was 83-611 motor, not an original bullet motor. The 83-611 motor is only the other Delta motor that fits to this goose egg motor cover. Anyway, I begun to search Facebook marketplace again to find bullet motor, and fortunately was able to find a vintage bullet motor near my area. It was sold as parts since not running. I thought that I might be able to fix and actually I did. Here are the photos of my restored FFU with the serial number F111. Instead of Delta gray (high seas gray), I used ReustOleum spray paints, i.e., satin nickel. Thanks for watching.
