    Based on the date cast into the eggshell motor cover I think my saw was made in 1965. For certain the cover was made in Jan 5 or May 1 of 1965.

    Supertune your table saw in 4 parts, should work I think.

    Progress on the saw this far.
    1) I decided to ditch the Unifence. KMS had an Excalibur fence on for crazy cheap. I always preferred the Beismeyer style so this feels right to me.

    2) Swapped the Excalibur light gauge rear angle rail for 2x2x1/8” angle.
    Drilled to match the table. Polished the top. Smooooooth! Fence glides like butter.

    3) Bought new belts.

    4) The other night I picked up a drafting table from a neighbour. The top is unmarked and measures 48”x 32”. Perfect size for the side extension table.
    Score!
    (Just laid the top in for trial purposes)

    Id be interested to know if there is a material difference between a set of unmatched belts and a set of matched belts.

    I also believe this to be true, at least as far as "wrapped" belts, but maybe a belt expert could confirm. I think that we can still buy "raw edge" belts in matched sets as they simply bind them in pairs/triples etc as they take them off the cutter. I have been told by belt sellers that wrapped belts are accurate enough that matching is not done on them anymore.

    That is a good article and i'm willing to bet anyone who has purchased a used Unisaw and taken the table offf or can't find shims has a saw that is out of whack.

    I have no idea if the members can do that. My patience does not wear well when the "staff" are not trying to resolve it as best they can.

    I am not in any rush as no PM I can think of here would be URGENT, but more annoying seeing the red number keep increasing and silently mocking me..
