Lithium Grease on EVERYTHING! How easily things go together when there is no rust and fresh grease being used. Where as during dis-assembly, I was almost near seeking some kind of hydraulic assistance to get upper and lower tables off those columns. Now, they glide/slide easily up and down, no binding, while being snug. Everything is finger tight, not torqued as of yet. Stopped after rough install of infeed / outfeed rollers. I actually had to look at Jet planer pictures to see which side is the infeed of the lower table. I am missing 1 part…dang, phoey, grrr. I was so meticulous on placing parts out as I dis-assembled. I am missing the woodruff key for the upper column gear, that works the underneath chain to lower/raise the table. It’s 1/4” high x 1/8” thick or so. I searched everywhere for that little sucker. Luckily, eReplacements has it in stock for $4.
