The fence, having been stored outside in a shed for two years, had dried out and the two side boards had shrunk enough that both boards had fallen off while transporting it home. The bumper rail was also separating from the ends and would not sta...
Here you can see the end result of cleaning the underside of the table. The minor rust seems to be converted and sealed as the product claimed. At this point I reassembled the saw. I didn’t include any pictures here as they are redun...
