Thanks for the post on ereplacement parts. I stumbled on their site last night in desperation and it looks to be the same partlist that Sears has – hence no base avaiable.

Things are starting to make sense. Now I see that the bent rail is raised up and that is probably why the table was 1/16” high on the infeed end (as opposed to the blade end of the infeed table).

Brad, thanks for the comments on the soda can – I will try that first. Maybe I will use my table saw for rabbiting instead (or make a router table).

Since the cracked party is raised, I am going to attempt to stabalize it with some MIG tack welds then take my 4” angle grinder and grind the raised part down so it is at least level with the rest of the rail. If I go more, I will try and shim back up.

I should have listened to my mentor when he told me to never by used tools.

If anyone has any other ideas – fire away.

If it turns out that I runin it – I will put it up for parts and save for a new machine.
