I bought a new 1985 model 34-885 Uniguard on Ebay. It arrived today
and I was excited to attach it to my 1998 Unisaw. No go, as the cast
Uniguard bracket profile is different from the saw cabinet profile at
the corner. Also, there looks to be a boss on the underside of the
table for the second attachment hole about 3 inches from the corner
hole but the there is a lip on the cabinet that covers the hole. Is
anyone familiar with the various versions of the Uniguard and Unisaws
to point me to a model/part number of a bracket that will fit my
Unisaw Model 36-816 which is factory painted white?
I considered the current Deluxe Uniguard model 34-976 but did not want
to spend $300.00 for it. Looks like I may have to if I cannot fine a
solution with my bracket.
I downloaded the manual for the 34-976 and in the diagrams to attach
the support arm of the Uniguard, the back left corner of the cabinet
looks like it is indented. This may have been done to be able to
attach the 34-885 bracket on earlier Unisaws. I will also call Delta
customer service tomorrow and see if they can help.
I could also make a template of the cabinet corner profile and have
the existing casting ground to match the template.
Any help would, as usual, be appreciated.
