« Part 5: More on the Throat Plate and a "Duh!" Part 6 of Craftsman Table Saw 28462 series Part 7: Stop the madness - track "solved" »

Tried the jb weld on the two Aluminum bars. Didn’t hold. Scuffed surface. Still didn’t hold.

I did have a good idea. Wrapped the bars in wax paper before gluing to keep it from sticking in the track.

Good news is that it does scrape off easily.

Think I need to screw it together.

Grinding off the tabs looks better now…

Is there different types of JB Weld? There may be an aluminum specific product. You may also want to check out Loc-Tite.
