Thanks, Frank. The outlets apparently aren't a problem - I tried to
think ahead when I installed the sub-panel. But later, I viewed
another guy's saw that had a twist-lock 30 amp plug wired on - got me
worried. His receptacle wouldn't fit in my metal boxes. Thanks for
the confirmation. (I'm using conduit with THHN wiring and combination
120/240v outlet boxes.)
You think that's odd, check out these Leviton outlets:
Dual 120/240v 20A sockets in one receptacle!
The problem with a different fence is that the $1249 Unisaw special I
am looking at comes only with a 50" Bies, extension table and legs.
If I want a shorter rail or a Uni Fence, it'll cost me $1699. Big
difference in $$$...
Yeah, that often happens with these specially priced packages. So I
would go back to Swingman's original recommendation. Get it in see if
it will fit and if worse comes to worse pull the guide rail and have
it cut to fit. You can probably find a metal fab shop with a band
saw that can neatly cut it for a few bucks. You can cut down and
reskirt the table yourself.

Yes, that is the critter you need for the 3hp/240v Unisaw. Your pic
shows a 15/20amp 240v recept. It will work. A 20amp recept has two
horiz blades. That's the plug on the Unisaw, two horizon blades and a
round neutral/gnd below. The Unisaw plug looks like a smily face when
viewed straight on.
Fwiw, I made my own 30ft ext cord, male (6-20P) and female (6-20R) cord
adapters ($6 and $8) from Home Depot, heavy AWG 12 cord from MSC for
$.70/ft. For longer cords, AWG 10 is (I believe) $.77/ft. This is the
heavy-duty yellow cord used for those industrial take up reels.
I have a problem!!! Similar to the topic at hand, I just bought and
installed a new Delta X5 unisaw, installed a 100amp subpanel in the
shop, with a dedicated two-pole 20amp breaker through 12ga wire into
the proper receptacle. When I push "ON" it wont start...
no sound or anything happening. As I hold my voltage tester to the
saws power cord, when I push "ON" it sends power through
the cord and into the motor housing. But still the saw doesnt start.
Any ideas!? I'm in the middle of a job with a deadline, and I cant
wait till monday for Delta tech support to come to work.
