I noticed last night while watching Norm make the "Pier Table" that his
Unisaw looked shiny. Specifically, the Handwheels looked to have been
chromed. I have not noticed this before and I always have seen the
Handwheels as Black. Because I have Tivo I was able to look closer and sure
enough at 18 minutes into the episode when he is cutting the front pieces
for the table and he switches from 45 to 22 1/2 degrees those nice chromed
Handwheels are prominently shown.
Is this a new trend? Or are the Handwheels Chromed on Unisaws?
I'm not sure if they upgraded the handles. The Unisaw now being used
replaced the original Rockewell Unisaw around season 6. The possiblity
certainly exists that it's an even newer Unisaw that I haven't noticed
(nor been looking for). It's hard enough to tell Unisaws apart unless
they have four feet.
