    There is one on the Vancouver craigslist $80. Saw it earlier today. Search for Unitas parts. John

    Thanks for the reply Erik. I posted some pics and more info about switch in the topic below. Might be better to continue the conversation over there.

So I'm guessing that switch is not original. Not sure if it's appropriate for the motor or not. It's a single phase 1.5HP. Here's a pic. I guess we're getting off topic too. Maybe I should start a new thread for the saw rebuild.

    Well Andy, that will need some work. I would replace that with a magnetic starter but save that switch. May be good enough for a 1.5 hp but I would look for a mag starter and run the motor on 220v.

Don’t get anything until you have the top off and see that none of the castings are cracked. Keep track of any shims that are there as you will need to replace them. I like the starter you have on the saw with the Art Deco switch cover.

    You maybe able to find one online, you can also get plastic ones on e-Bay or just cut a piece of 1/4” MDF to fit. Have fun stripping and cleaning it up.

    WTB: Rockwell Unisaw Dust Door

    I picked up a 1970s Rockwell Unisaw today and it's missing the dust door. So I'm on the lookout for one. I don't know if there were different sizes over the years, but if anyone here has one that would fit please let me know.

    Thanks,

    Andy

    Here's a pic of the saw.
