Got a couple hours in on the project today….. started by breaking out my 7 amp DeWalt and drilled and then hand tapped new threads on the motor mount lock bolt.
Of course, I forgot to stop by the hardware store on my way home from work Friday…. So I don’t have a 1/2-13×3/4 bolt.
Next I brought in and cleaned up the Fence rails…. and I must say that Biesemeyer certainly didn’t skimp out on the steel on these beastly boys! They are heavy.
Then I wired up the motor and put knock out plugs in some of the extra holes in the cabinet.
Finally I sanded and scrubbed the cast wings…
They look great…. untill you get close up :^(
Oh well, beggars can’t be choosers.
Then I waxed the table and wings to preserve my efforts.
And last of all, I scrounged through my bins of wiring stuff to see if I had the right kind of plug to hook up the saw…. and I don’t
Home Depot here I come.
