Hi Brad,

Thanks for the quick response and detailed feedback. That is great to hear that I should not give up on it yet.

The table was really sturdy (no play) before I took it off, I just wanted to be able to fine tune it.

I have a MIG welder and will tack weld the back and end of the split piece without welding inside the groove and see if that stabalized it. If not, I can always grind them off.

I was hoping to be able to go between jointing and rabbiting but if I need to set this machine up just for jointing at 1/16” that will be fine – at least I can use it.

I will go to my local auto-parts store and see if they have shim stock and get her all level and flat and tightened down so there is no play.

I still don’t quiet get how gibs work but will play with it until she is leve and tight..

Thanks so much,
